    • Mary D- Asked questions about marketing flyers. 
    • Bob- Consider next week a resolution of no confidence in the Student-Centered funding formula. Will share with officers. Would like us to discuss at the next meeting. Would like in the next state senate plenary three resolutions:  no confidence in the chancellor, the student-centered formula, and the online college.
    • Ilan- question regarding the process for approval of new certificates and degrees.
    • Marc - How do I ensure that my students’ certificates show on their transcript.
      • COA, COAA, and AS/AA  all show on the transcripts. Only basic skills certificates do not.

    Needs and Confirmations
    • Mary S motioned Biology hiring committee (Terrance seconded)
    • No opposition, no abstention- Passed

    Draft Updated Best Practices for Students in Shared Governance (2nd reading)
    • Mary P- Worried re #3 “the mentors should have more than 3 months….,” the 3 months is concerning because there are members who do not have 3 months that would still be good mentors. The student governance group should be the ones to decide who the mentos should be.
      • Cynthia- was present during the creation of the draft and the decision to include this was so that the person should have a feeling for the committee climate. Plus, it says “should.”
      • Motion made by Cynthia to approve, seconded by Mary S. All in support. PASSSED.

    Request to add DASB statement to Academic Senate Model Syllabus (2nd reading/discussion)
    • Change “school” to college” possibly change “D(istrict).”
    • Motion to approve - Mary S. Seconded by Terrence. Unanimous approval by the committee.

    Faculty Representation on Planning and Budget Teams (PBTs)
    • Full time or phase 3 year 4 candidates.
    • Mary D - Would like to have wording included or adjust as necessary to have a part-time, reemployment preference added to PBTs. 
      • Mary S- what is the organizational need? Full-time faculty don’t represent both? What happens if the part-timer doesn’t teach for a quarter or so?
      • Cynthia - We as a body should be able to decide. Each faculty should be responsible for being aware of their position and time obligations. 
      • Marissa- could you include “faculty, including part-time” in the language.
      • Add to next meeting for review and vote. 

    Transformational Leadership Discussion

    • DDEAC
      • Change “invited” to “welcomed”

      • Chancellor Miner attended DASB meeting and received feedback on the Flint. Will be discussed in district meeting on June 10th. Student and faculty housing use of Flint Center is what is supported by DASB.
