Minutes for the October 29 meeting were approved.
Mohan Gill reported that visitors from Windesheim, Netherlands were here yesterday and had a good exchange of idea.
Tammy Salmon-Stephens reported that advisor training sessions held on Wednesday and Thursday of last week had about 20 participants (both new and veteran advisors). Tammy also reported that Erin Ralph and Rayelle Miller had been selected as Super Seniors.
Abulkhair Masoom reported that the Pioneer Previews went very well.
Sheryl Wills announced that the Math contest was taking place today.
Rich Shultz reported on the possibility of a new building to help service the college. This will be tied into the new enrollment initiative being proposed.
A discussion about how to best service the computer labs in the college when upgrades are need came to the conclusion that a specific time each week for each lab should be set to do upgrades. Obviously, this time slot would not be used every week or even very frequently, but faculty and student would know that the lab could be shut down at that time to perform that work. The chairs will set the times for each lab in conversation with Jim and Andy.
The Expo Committee has asked each department to set up a “Homeroom” for their department during expo. That way students or teachers who have questions about a particular major would have some place to go and talk with a student or faculty member. Alma Valencia has also requested that alumni be welcome at the “Homeroom” also.
Alma Valencia has also asked the chairs if they know of any bridges to industry that need to be built to please let her know. She is more than willing to reach out and help make friends with our industrial partners.
The Emergency Procedures committee presented their work. The document which sets out procedures to evacuate the building and move to shelter areas was discussed and slightly modified. The document will be sent on to the University Safety Director.
Chairs were reminded of the capital budget that they have remaining to spend and encouraged to spend it soon.
Meeting adjourned at 11:44.
