FROM THE CAMPAIGN FOR COLLEGE OPPORTUNITY. MS. BASQUE AS WAS PRESIDENT WHEN PASADENA
CITY COLLEGE WAS RECOGNIZED IN DECEMBER OF LAST YEAR AS ONE OF THE HIGH-PERFORMING DISTRICTS
IN THE STATE. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US TODAY AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE TO YOUR FROM YOU.>>THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. AS MENTIONED,
I’M WITH THE CAMPAIGN FOR COLLEGE OPPORTUNITY, AND I SERVE AS THE DIRECTOR OF REGIONAL AFFAIRS.
FOR THOSE THAT YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN FOR COLLEGE OPPORTUNITY, WE ARE A NONPROFIT
POLICY ADVOCACY ORGANIZATION DEDICATED SOLELY ON CALIFORNIA’S HIGHER AND. OUR SOLE PURPOSE
IS TO ENSURE THAT EVERY STUDENT IN CALIFORNIA HAS A REAL OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND COLLEGE AND
HAS THE RESOURCES AND SUPPORT TO EARN A DEGREE, TRANSFER, OR EARN A CERTIFICATE. OUR WORK
IS REALLY TO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE THE BEST SHOT TO ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS. LAST DECEMBER,
WE HOSTED OUR SECOND ANNUAL CHAMPIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION WHERE WE RECOGNIZED THOSE THROUGHOUT
THE STATE FOR EXEMPLARY WORK AND AWARDING THE TRANSFER PATHWAY. AS TIME PERMITS, I WOULD
LIKE TO GIVE YOU A HANDOUT THAT GIVES AN OVERVIEW OF THE OTHER HONOREES AND SOME INFORMATION
ABOUT THE IMPORTANT OF IT. ONE OF OUR BIGGEST AREAS OF ADVOCACY IS INVESTING IN TRANSFER.
THIS IS A BIG TRANSFER INSTITUTION. YOU ARE RECOGNIZED STATEWIDE FOR YOUR INVESTMENTS
IN TRANSFER. WE REALLY WANTED TO HONOR PCC TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PATHWAYS FOR ADT WERE
PROMOTED TO YOUR STUDENTS. WE DID A LITTLE VELVET — A LITTLE BIT OF A COMPETITION AND
YOU WERE THE SECOND SPOT. I CHALLENGE PCC TO CONTINUE INCREASING THE AWARDS BECAUSE,
FOR A CAMPUS OF 25,000 FULL-SIZED — 25,000 FULL-TIME STUDENTS, I THINK YOU CAN DO BETTER
THAN 800, ALTHOUGH YOU WERE A STATEWIDE RECOGNIZED INSTITUTION. I WANTED TO COME IN PERSON AND
COMMEND YOU ON YOUR EFFORTS TO IMPLEMENT THE ADT. AS TIME PERMITS, I DID WANT TO GIVE YOU
A PREVIEW OF ONE OF OUR UPCOMING REPORT, HIGHLIGHTING DIVERSITY IN INSTITUTIONS. OUR REPORT IS GOING
TO BE TITLED , “HOW EXCLUSION IN CALIFORNIA’S COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES UNDERVALUE STUDENTS
AND ECONOMY.” THE PRESENT — THE PREMISE OF THE REPORT IS THE NOTION THAT A CULTURALLY
COMPETENT WORKFORCE IS IMPORTANT TO MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR FUTURE ECONOMY. THE CHALLENGE
IN CALIFORNIA’S HIGHER RED AND HIGHER ED, YOU COULD ARGUE, ACROSS THE COUNTRY, IS TO
HAVE A WORKFORCE THAT IS REFLECTIVE OF THE POPULATION IT SERVES AND THAT THERE IS A PROPORTIONAL
REPRESENTATION IN YOUR HIGHER RANKS THAT REFLECTS YOUR STUDENT POPULATION. OUR HOPE IS THAT
— OUR PLAN IS TO DISAGGREGATE CAMPUS LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES. WE WILL HAVE A PROFILE FOR
EVERY SINGLE COMMUNITY COLLEGE, CSU, YOU SEE — CSU, USC IN THIS — UC IN THE STATE. I
WAS HOPING WE COULD HAVE A DISCUSSION MAYBE AT YOUR CAMPUS ABOUT THE REPORT’S FINDINGS
AND THE IMPORTANCE OF DIVERSITY ON CAMPUS. I WANTED TO LEAVE ONE OF THESE HANDOUTS FOR
YOU. AN OVERVIEW OF THE METHODOLOGY WE USE TO HIGHLIGHT THE HONOREES FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGES.
THERE ARE 114 COMMUNITY COLLEGES AND ONLY NINE WERE RECOGNIZED. ANOTHER SHOUT OUT — I
DON’T THINK I GAVE YOU A SHOUT OUT, BUT YOUR EFFORTS AND YOUR COLLABORATIVE WORK WITH YOUR
STAFF AND THE ACADEMIC SENATE LEADERSHIP. I’VE MET WITH THEM ALREADY SO I KNOW FIRSTHAND’S
OF THE EFFORTS YOU ARE LEAVING. I WANTED TO CONGRATULATE YOU FOR THAT. SEC. VURDIEN: I
ALSO WANT US TO RECOGNIZE LINDA, OUR INTERIM VICE PRESIDENT FOR HUMAN RESOURCES. WE WELCOME
YOU. NOW, WE WOULD LIKE TO RECOGNIZE DR. ROSS SELVIDGE FOR HIS SERVICE TO THE PASADENA AREA
COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT AS PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD DURING THE 2017 CALENDAR YEAR. WOULD
YOU PLEASE JOIN PRESIDENT FELLOW AT THE PODIUM? PRES. FELLOW: DR. ROSS SELVIDGE SERVED AS
PRESIDENT BEFORE AND HE SERVED WITH DISTINCTION. I THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP. IN HONOR
OF THAT, WE HAVE SOME THINGS THAT YOU COULD PLACE ON YOUR WALL. 2017 COMMUNITY COLLEGE
DISTRICT BOARD OF TRUSTEES. GRATITUDE FOR YOUR SERVICE AND LEADERSHIP. THANKS. [APPLAUSE] TRUSTEE SELVIDGE: THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I THINK
IT WAS A PRETTY SUCCESSFUL YEAR FOR THE COLLEGE ALL AROUND AND EVERYONE CONTRIBUTED TO THAT.
WE GOT CONFIRMATION OF OUR ACCREDITATION, WE GOT THE TOP 10 AWARD. I KNOW WE GOT A BALANCED
BUDGET AND WE EVEN INCREASED OUR RESERVES, SO WE’RE LOOKING AHEAD TO BEING ABLE TO DEAL
WITH SOME REALLY DIFFICULT CHALLENGES. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE EXTENT IN WHICH WE HAVE GOT
STUDENTS WHO ARE MORE SUCCESSFUL AT THE END OF THEIR COURSEWORK, CONTINUING TO ENROLL
IN THE NEXT TERM, THEY HAVEN’T — IF THEY HAVEN’T RECEIVED A DEGREE AND GRADUATED, WE
HAVE A GREAT TRANSFER RATE. MEASURES OF STUDENT SUCCESS SEEM TO BE GOING UP. I THINK WE’RE
GOING TO HAVE A REAL FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE ORGANIZATION DON’T FORWARD. — ORGANIZATION
GOING FORWARD. [APPLAUSE] PRES. FELLOW: OK, THIS IS THE TIME FOR PUBLIC
COMMENT ON NON-AGENDA ITEMS. WE HAVE ONE PUBLIC ITEM BY MR. MARTIN ENRIQUEZ. HAPPY NEW YEAR
TO YOU. MARTIN: HELLO, HELLO. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL
OF YOU. IT WAS A FINE JOB THAT WAS DONE UNDER THE HONORABLE DR. SELVIDGE. CONGRATULATIONS,
SIR. HONORABLE TRUSTEES AND ASSEMBLED PERSON’S, I’M GOING TO READ PASSAGES OF PUBLIC LAW 97-205,
THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT AMENDMENT OF 1982. THE VOTING RIGHTS LEGISLATION WHICH THIS COMMITTEE
HAS CONSIDERED IS ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT ISSUES TO COME BEFORE THIS CONGRESS. IT HAS
GENERATED DISCUSSION NOT ONLY IN THE CONGRESS BUT THROUGHOUT THE NATION AS WELL. THIS COMMITTEE
HAS GIVEN DETAILED ATTENTION BEFORE COMING TO THE CONCLUSIONS REFLECTED IN THIS REPORT,
WHICH IS A STATEMENT FOR THE RECORD UP THE INTENDED OPERATION OF THIS BILL. THE COMMITTEE
BILL WILL EXTEND TO THE ESSENTIAL PROTECTIONS OF THE HISTORIC VOTING RIGHTS ACT, TO ENSURE
THAT THE HARD-WON PROGRESS OF THE PAST IS PRESERVED AND THAT THE EFFORT TO RECEIVE FULL
PARTICIPATION FOR ALL AMERICANS IN OUR DEMOCRACY WILL CONTINUE IN THE FUTURE. 17 YEARS AGO
— AND THIS WAS WRITTEN IN 1982 — 17 YEARS AGO, THE AMERICANS OF ALL RACES AND CREEDS
JOINED SO THE NATION WOULD CONFRONT ITS CONSCIENCE. WHEN THAT — WITH THAT EFFORT CAME THE VOTING
RIGHTS ACT OF 1965. PRESIDENT LYNDON JOHNSON HAILED ITS ENACTMENT AS A TRIUMPH FOR FREEDOM
AS HUGE AS ANY EVER WON BY ANY BATTLEFIELD. AS A RESULT OF THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT OF 1965,
HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS CAN NOW VOTE, AND EQUALLY IMPORTANT, HAVE THEIR VOTES
COUNT THE SAME AS THEIR FELLOW CITIZENS. MEN AND WOMEN FROM RACIAL AND AT THE ENORMITIES
NOW HOLD PUBLIC OFFICE — RACIAL AND ETHNIC MINORITIES NOW HOLD PUBLIC OFFICE IN PLACES
THAT IT WASN’T THOUGHT POSSIBLE. IT HAS BEEN EXTENDED EACH TIME THE ACT HAS COME UNDER
ATTACK. EACH TIME, THE CONGRESS, IN A BIPARTISAN BASIS, HAS COME TO ITS RESCUE TO SUPPORT AMERICANS
FROM ALL PARTS OF THE COUNTRY, TO APPRECIATE THE LEGACY OF THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT. AN UNDERSTANDING
OF ITS HISTORY IS ESSENTIAL. TRADITIONALLY, BLACK AMERICANS WERE DENIED THE FRANCHISE
THROUGHOUT THE SOUTH.>>I’M GOING TO HAVE TO ASK YOU TO WRAP UP. MARGIN: — MARTIN: I SENT THE CLERK THE ENTIRE
PDF. I SENT YOU THE SYNOPSIS.>>THANK YOU. NO FURTHER COMMENT.>>TONIGHT, WE HAVE CONSENT ITEMS. THE FIRST
CATEGORY DEALS WITH STUDENTS. WE HAVE SIX ITEMS. DO ANY TRUSTEES WANT ANYTHING PULLED
OR ANY INFORMATION? WE HAVE A MOTION BY MS. WAH, A SECOND BY MR. OSTERLING. ALL IN FAVOR,
SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.>>AYE. PRES. FELLOW: PROMOTION IS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY.
I WILL ENTERTAIN A MOTION TO APPROVE THE MINUTES OF THE DECEMBER 13 MEETING. WE HAVE A MOTION

LIKE TO HAVE A MOTION ON THE FLOOR. THE FIRST ITEM IN THE PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH UP EIGHT.
— UPDATE. THE FIRST ITEM IS SOME CHANGES MADE BEFORE TODAY’S MEETING. THERE IS SOME
CONFLICTS WITH THE SCHEDULE FOR — THE SCHEDULE.>>ARE WE ON ITEM H1 NOW? PRES. FELLOW: YES. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE
BOARD’S DECISION DATE IS SUPPOSED TO BE BETWEEN APRIL 6 AND APRIL 16 OR 20. THAT IS A RECESS.
IT HAS BEEN ASKED THAT WE MOVE THAT DATE TO THE 25TH. I WILL BE IN ISRAEL.>>THE 25TH OF WHICH MUCH — OF WHICH MONTH? PRES. FELLOW: THERE IS NOBODY ON CAMPUS THE
WEEK BEFORE.>>MR. PRESIDENT, YOU ARE GOING TO ASK US
TO APPROVE A TIMETABLE AND THIS IS A CHANGE TO THAT TIMETABLE? PRES. FELLOW: CORRECT.>>WHICH THING IS MOVING? PRES. FELLOW: THE BOARD DECISION DATE.>>THE TIMELINE THAT YOU RECEIVED WITH YOUR
BOARD PACKET WAS REVISED AND IT WAS REVISED AFTER COMPTON — AFTER CONVERSATION WITH HUMAN
RESOURCES AND GOING THROUGH WHAT LIKELY WILL TAKE LONGER THAN ANTICIPATED. WITH REGARDS
TO — I DIDN’T QUITE HEAR WHAT COMPONENT OF THIS THE SCHEDULE WAS IN CONFLICT. PRES. FELLOW: APRIL 23 TO APRIL 26. IT WAS
APRIL 16 THROUGH APRIL 20. WE NEED SOME MORE TIME TO PREPARE DOCUMENTS FOR THE BOARD. I
SUGGEST WE HAVE A MEETING ON WEDNESDAY THE 25TH. ANY PROBLEM?>>I’M CONFUSED.>>I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE ASKING.>>I HAVE A LOGISTICAL QUESTION. PRES. FELLOW: THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE
SEEN THIS.>>WHAT I RECEIVED IS A TWO-PAGE DOCUMENT.
IT APPEARS THAT A MIDDLE PAGES MISSING.>>NO.>>GOT YOU. IT’S TWO-SIDED. PRES. FELLOW:>>APRIL 16 THROUGH APRIL 20, THAT IS WHEN
THEY WERE HAVING A DISCUSSION TO DECIDE THE PERSON THEY WERE GOING TO HIRE. THAT HAS BEEN
MOVED TO THE FOLLOWING WEEK, WHICH WILL BE APRIL 25.>>INSTEAD OF APRIL 18-20, YOU ARE SUGGESTING
THAT THE LAST DATE TO HAVE A CLOSED SESSION IS APRIL 25? THAT IS UPON RECOMMENDATION OF
THE HR DIRECTOR OR, IS THAT RIGHT?>>WHAT HAPPENS TO THE APRIL 16 TO THE 20TH
PREPARE — DOES THAT STATE? — DOES THAT STAY? TRUSTEE WAH: THE DATE WAS ADJUSTED. THE DOCUMENT
YOU HAVE BEFORE YOU IS IT REVISION TO THE CALENDAR.>>APRIL 25 WOULD BE FOR THE CLOSED SESSION>
? TRUSTEE WAH: CORRECT.>>THEY WOULD NEED TO MOVE THAT PCC MEASURE
MEETING. PRES. FELLOW: THE TIMELINE IS CORRECT?>>QUESTION. THERE WERE TWO THINGS WE DID
THE LAST TIME AROUND THAT AREN’T REFLECTED ON THE CALENDAR. I WANT TO UNDERSTAND IF THE
CALENDAR AREAS — IF THE NUMBER OF DAYS WILL ACCOMMODATE THESE. ONE WAS, AFTER THE BOARD
INTERVIEWED THE — LAST TIME AROUND, IT WAS SIX CANDIDATES. THEY NARROWED IT DOWN TO THREE
FINALISTS. THAT WAS DONE THE DAY AFTER THEY DID THE INTERVIEW. THE NEXT DAY, IT WAS NARROWED
DOWN TO THREE. AFTER THAT, THE DAY WE VOTED ON THE ELECTION FOR THE NEXT PRESIDENT, THERE
WERE TWO SORT OF EVOLUTIONS THAT TOOK PLACE. ONE WAS A CAMPUS VISIT BY EACH OF THE THREE
FINALISTS ON A SEPARATE DAY. THERE WAS ALSO A VISIT BY THREE DIFFERENT TRUSTEE TEAMS TO
THE CAMPUS FROM WHICH THE FINALISTS WERE COMING. IT WAS ALL PUBLIC AT THE POINT WHERE THE THREE
FINALISTS WERE IDENTIFIED. DO WE HAVE SPACE IN THIS CALENDAR TO ACCOMMODATE THOSE TWO
THINGS, AND THE LEAD TIME TO ORGANIZE AND SET THEM UP? IT WILL INVOLVE — IT WILL INVOLVE
SOME CALENDAR WORK.>>THERE IS A DATE SET ASIDE FOR FINALISTS
TO VISIT THE CAMPUS, AND THAT WOULD BE OVER THE PERIOD OF MAY 9 THROUGH MAY 11. THAT IS
ON THE REVISED CALENDAR. THERE IS NOT A SCHEDULE FOR VISITS BY THE TRUSTEES. THE FINALISTS
ARE CURRENTLY WORKING AND THAT IS BECAUSE, IN MY EXPERIENCE, THAT IS NOT SOMETHING I
RECOMMEND. TYPICALLY, INDIVIDUALS ON CAMPUS WILL TELL YOU WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR. WE WILL,
HOWEVER, HAVE CONDUCTED REFERENCES, AND WE WILL HAVE SHARED THOSE REFERENCES WITH YOU. TRUSTEE WAH: SO, AS DR. SELVIDGE MENTIONED,
WE DID FIND IT VERY HELPFUL, THE VISIT TO THE CAMPUSES FROM THE FINALISTS. WE SELECTED
WHO WE WANTED TO TALK TO. WE ASKED ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS. I THINK IT GIVES US THE ADVANTAGE,
AND IT ALSO GIVES US A CHANCE TO REALLY HAVE SOME HEART TO HEART. YOU
ARE RIGHT. MANY TIMES, PEOPLE WOULD BE VERY CAUTIOUS EVEN IN THOSE SETTINGS. I FOUND THE
INTERVIEWS TO BE HELPFUL AND I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO MY FELLOW TRUSTEES THAT WE DO
THAT.>>THANK YOU. TRUSTEE OSTERLING: IF WE ARE TO CONTINUE TO
DO THAT, WHERE SHOULD WE SLOT THAT IN ON THIS CALENDAR? IT WOULD HAVE TO BE AFTER THE 25TH
MEETING AND BEFORE THE NINTH. OR WE WOULD HAVE TO PUSH THINGS BACK, WHICH WE DON’T WANT
TO DO.>>LAST TIME, IT TOOK PLACE BEFORE THE FINALISTS
VISITED PASADENA CITY COLLEGE?>>YES.>>IT COULD BE THE FIRST WEEK IN MAY.>>AT THIS POINT, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE.>>NO ONE OBJECTS TO THAT?>>I’M TRYING TO REMEMBER. WE INTERVIEWED
THE CANDIDATES. WE CHOSE THREE CANDIDATES. WE WENT TO THEIR SITE AND VISITED THEM. ONCE
WE VISITED THEM, THEN WE DECIDED. IS THAT RIGHT?>>YES.>>THAT WOULD BE MAY 14 THROUGH 18. TRUSTEE OSTERLING: I HAVEN’T SEEN THIS. I
WAS WORKING OFF THE 1 — CLEAR THE SLATE. WE ARE WORKING OFF OF THIS ONE. IN THE SPIRIT
OF EFFICIENCY, LAST TIME, WHEN WE HAD THE SIX CANDIDATES ALL IN ONE DAY, SEPARATELY,
SIX INTERVIEWS, WE MET THE NEXT DAY AND CUT IT DOWN TO THREE. THAT WAS A PRETTY EFFICIENT
WAY TO MOVE FORWARD. THEN, WITH THE THREE FINALISTS, WE SAID, WE’RE GOING TO GO TO EACH
ONE OF THOSE THREE FINALISTS IN EACH WILL GET A DAY ON CAMPUS TO MEET WITH ALL THE GROUPS
AND EVERYBODY, DO THEIR STAND UP. THAT’S THE WAY IT UNFOLDED LAST TIME. I REMEMBER IT WAS
ON A SUNDAY. WE WERE THERE ALL SUNDAY AFTERNOON, DOING THE FINAL SELECTION. IT WAS ALMOST A
MONTH FROM THE TIME THE SCREENING COMMITTEE — OR WAS IT MORE THAN THAT? THEY SAID, IN
THE CASE OF LAST TIME, SIX PEOPLE, THEY MADE ARRANGEMENTS TO COME HERE FOR THEIR INDIVIDUAL
INTERVIEW. THE NEXT DAY, WE NARROW IT DOWN TO THREE. VISITS TO THEIR PLACES. THEY CAME
TO VISIT HERE. I KNOW WE’VE GOT ROOM BUT I’M NOT SURE WE CAN GET IT DONE AS SOON AS MAY
14 OR MAY 9.>>YOU DID IT THE FIRST WEEK OF MAY?>>AS I RECALL, WE ACTED IMMEDIATELY AND SCHEDULED
ALL OF THE ON-SITE INTERVIEWS. JUST BECAUSE WE FIXED THREE LAST TIME DOESN’T MEAN WE HAD
THREE WE FELT STRONGLY ABOUT. WE MAY NOT HAVE THREE THIS TIME, WE MAY HAVE ONE OR TWO. I
THINK IT DEPENDS ON HOW WELL THE SEARCH COMMITTEE FEELS ABOUT THE –>>IF I AM TO UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY, YOU MET
WITH AND INTERVIEWED CANDIDATES, YOU IDENTIFIED FINALISTS, THEN SCHEDULED TO VISIT THE FINALISTS’
CAMPUSES, AND AT THE SAME TIME, THERE WERE PROBABLY REFERENCE CHECKS ON THOSE THREE CANDIDATES,
THEN, AFTER THAT POINT, YOU VISITED THE SITES OF THOSE CANDIDATES, THEN THE FINALISTS WERE
INVITED TO PASADENA CITY COLLEGE. I THINK THERE IS TIME FOR THAT IN THIS TIMEFRAME BECAUSE,
DURING THE PERIOD THAT THE REFERENCE CHECKS ARE BEING CONDUCTED, THAT VISITS COULD BE
MADE TO THEIR COLLEGES. WHILE WE WOULD BE WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES, YOU WOULD BE WORKING
WITH THE CANDIDATES ON THE CAMPUS?>>I THINK THAT WHOEVER COMES TO THE TABLE,
IF THEY ARE INTERESTED IN REALLY BEING A FINALIST — I KNOW WE HAVE HAD A LITTLE BIT OF FEEDBACK
FROM PROFESSOR HARRIS THAT CANDIDATES WOULD POSSIBLY NOT WANT US TO VISIT THEIR CAMPUSES.
I WOULD RECOMMEND, DR. SERRANO, THAT YOU INFORM THE CANDIDATES THAT THAT IS THE WISH OF THE
BOARD.>>WE MEET ON THE 25TH, MAKE THE IDENTIFICATION
OF THE FINALISTS , AND THEN THE FOLLOWING WEEK WOULD BE THE VISITS, EITHER TWO OR THREE
OR ONE. HOW’S THAT?>>I CONCUR.>>DID WE ACTUALLY GO AND VISIT THEM BEFORE
WE WERE SERIOUS ABOUT THEM? DR. SERRANO: WE FELT STRONGLY ABOUT THREE
CANDIDATES. WE RECOMMENDED THE CONSTITUENT GROUPS THAT WE WANTED TO TALK TO. WE TALKED
TO THE FOUNDATION, THE STUDENT TRUSTEES. WE NAMED WHO WE WANTED TO SEE. THOSE THREE WERE
SCHEDULED TO COME TO THE CAMPUS AND MEET WITH OUR CONSTITUENTS. THAT’S THE SEQUENCE I REMEMBER.
WE ARE GOING TO SPECIFY ON THE CALENDAR THAT THE BOARD CLOSED SESSION IS GOING TO BE ON
APRIL 25. I’M GOING TO SUGGEST THAT WE ADD A LINE UNDERNEATH THAT BUT IT CAN MEET FROM
APRIL 26 TWO MAY ACE. THAT IS THE TIME — MAY 8. THAT IS THE TIMELINE THAT IS AVAILABLE.
I WOULD ONLY AT ONE POINT OF CLARIFICATION TO WHAT YOU SAID AND THAT IS ON YOUR REVISED
CALENDAR, THE REFERENCE REPORTS HAVE ALREADY AND PREPARED FOR THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES. I
THINK THOSE ARE ACTUALLY GOING TO BE DONE AND AVAILABLE TO US AT THE CLOSED SESSION
ON THE 25TH. I AM JUST OFFERING THAT AS A POINT OF CLARIFICATION THAT YOU WOULD NOT
NEED TO BE DOING THAT DURING THESE ON-SITE VISITS SIMULTANEOUSLY.>>CORRECT.>>THE 25TH WILL BE THE BOARD MEETING AND
THEN APRIL 26 UNTIL MAY 8 WILL BE THE SITE VISIT.>>THE OTHER POINT WAS HOW CLOSE THE DISCUSSION
WAS ON THE BOARD TO GET IT DOWN TO THE FINALISTS AFTER THE INTERVIEWS. IN THIS PLAN, IT LOOKS
LIKE A WEEK OR TWO. NO?>>WE DID IT THE NEXT DAY THE LAST TIME AROUND.>>I AM AGREEING WITH YOUR POINT. I DON’T
KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT MY MEMORY WILL BE BETTER THE NEXT DAY RATHER THAN TWO WEEKS IN A HAVE
DETAILED MY NOTES ARE. THAT MIGHT BE, WE MIGHT BE MAKING FINALISTS WITHOUT GETTING PREPARED
REFERENCE REPORT. WE GET THE REFERENCE REPORT BEFORE WE PICK THE FINALISTS. I’M WONDERING
IF THERE IS NOT A WAY TO TAKE THE APRIL 25 AND PUT IT RIGHT ON THE BACK AND PUT IT RIGHT
ON THE BACK OF THE ENERGY WITH THE BOARD WHENEVER THAT IS. ANOTHER SATURDAY OR SUNDAY OR WHATEVER
ARRANGEMENT WORKS FOR EVERYBODY.>>TRYING TO ACCELERATE A LITTLE BIT.>>I THINK THERE IS A BENEFIT IN ACCELERATING,
BUT I THINK WHAT I AM TRYING TO DO IS NOT WAIT TWO WEEKS AND WE REGROUP AND SAY OK WHAT
WERE THE NAMES OF THE PEOPLE WE TALKED TO?>>YOUR POINT IS ON APRIL NIGHTS UNTIL THE
13TH, THE INVITED APPLICANTS ARE GOING TO INTERVIEW WITH THE BOARD.>>THAT
IS MY SUGGESTION. I AM AGREEING WITH IT. I’M THINKING BACK TO WHEN WE SELECTED EU AND WE
HAD ALL OF YOU COME IN AN INTERVIEW AND IT WAS THREE WEEKS BEFORE WE CAME BACK TO TALK
ABOUT IT AGAIN, AND IT WAS HARD FOR ME. IT WAS STILL HARD TO REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE CONNECTED
TO. WHICH ORGANIZATION YOU ARE CONNECTED TO. I KNEW I WANTED YOU, I JUST DID A NO WHICH
— I JUST WANT THIS TO HAPPEN ON THIS TYPE OF DECISION.>>LET’S SEE IF I’M KEEPING UP WITH YOU. APRIL
9 THROUGH 13TH, APPLICANTS ARE INVITED TO INTERVIEW WITH THE BOARD. THOSE OF THE FINALISTS
SELECTED AFTER THE SCREENING. FOLLOWING THAT INTERVIEW, YOU WOULD LIKE TO VISIT CAMPUSES
OF THE FINALISTS, BUT HE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO ALREADY HAVE THE REFERENCES FOR THOSE FINALISTS,
EVEN THOUGH WE WOULD NOT KNOW WHO THEY ARE UNTIL SOMETIME DURING THE WEEK OF THE 13TH?>>I DON’T THINK THAT IS WHAT HE INTENDED.
I THINK WHAT HE INTENDED WAS IMMEDIATELY AFTER APRIL 9 TWO THE 13TH, WE WOULD HAVE THE BOARD
CLOSED SESSION AND IDENTIFY THE FINALISTS. THEN, WE DO THE REFERENCES AND THE ON-SITE
VISITS.>>CORRECT.>>THE VISITS AND THE REFERENCES WOULD BE
CONDUCTED APRIL 16 THROUGH THE 20TH? OR BETWEEN APRIL 16 AND APRIL 25 WAS AT THE BOARD MEETING
ON THE 25TH?>>THE BOARD MEETING THAT WE HAVE HERE FOR
THE 25TH WOULD BE ACCELERATED AND IT WOULD BE EARLIER AND IT WOULD BE IMMEDIATELY AFTER
WE INTERVIEW THE APPLICANTS. IT WOULD BE APPROXIMATELY APRIL 14.>>EXACTLY.>>THAT IS THE ONLY THING I AM SUGGESTING.
AFTER THE INTERVIEWS, WE QUICKLY GET TOGETHER AND –>>YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT APRIL 9. I AM NOT
HERE THE 10TH. THE INVITED APPLICANTS INTERVIEW WITH THE TRUSTEES THE WHOLE DAY CORRECT? ON
THE 16TH TWO THE 20TH — TWO — TO THE 20TH, NOT HAVE A CAP. IF POSSIBLE, ON THE 14TH.>>WE ONLY TOOK ONE DAY TO INTERVIEW SEVEN
CANDIDATES. WE DID NOT NEED A WHOLE WEEK. WE SHOULD TRY TO GET THEM ALL IN ON ONE DAY.
THE REASON OF THE WEEK IS IDENTIFIED IS TO TAKE A DAY OR TWO DURING THAT WEEK.>>THEN ADMITTEDLY AFTERWARD, WE SELECTED
SO WE THOUGHT WERE THE BEST CANDIDATES. WITHIN THE FOLLOWING WEEK OR A FEW DAYS LATER, WE
WENT OVER AND DECIDED — DID THE SITE VISIT. THAT WAS PROBABLY THE HARDEST PART. WE HAD
TO GET THOSE CONSTITUENT GROUPS TOGETHER. THAT PROBABLY WOULD TAKE A WEEK. IS SATURDAY,
APRIL 7, IS A POSSIBLE WE COULD HAVE THE INVITED APPLICANTS HERE FOR THE INTERVIEW?>>NO. IT MIGHT BE EASIER FOR THEM TO GET
AWAY FROM –>>CAN WE DO IT WE DID LAST TIME AND TAKE
THE ART — AFTERNOON OF THE EIGHTH?>>LET’S DO THAT.>>THE SEVENTH WE WILL DO THE INTERVIEWS,
THE EIGHTH WE WILL MEET, AND THEN THE NEXT STEP IS THE BOARD CLOSED SESSION ON THE 25TH.>>THE BOARD CLOSED SESSION WOULD BE ON
THE EIGHT.>>OK, THE EIGHT.>>THE WEEK OF THE NINTH THROUGH THE 13TH
CORRECT FOR THE SITE VISITS?>>OF APRIL?>>>>–AND –>>YES.>>YOU WILL DO IT WITHOUT ME THEM.>>THE FINALISTS WILL VISIT THE CAMPUS ON
THE NINTH THROUGH THE 11TH?>>KNOW WE ARE DOING THIS HEIGHT IS HIS — SITE
VISITS FROM THE NINTH THROUGH THE 13TH.>>WE ARE MAKING SAUSAGE HERE FOLKS JUST TO
LET YOU KNOW. THE SAUSAGE IS ALMOST DONE.>>NOW WE HAVE ALMOST A MONTH GAP IN BETWEEN.
DO WE REALLY NEED THAT LONG?>>WE NEED TO DECIDE THE FINALIST ON THE 25TH
CORRECT?>>NO, WE ARE GOING TO DECIDE THE FINALISTS
ON THE EIGHTH.>>THE SITE VISITS ARE GOING TO BE THE NINTH
THROUGH THE 13TH YOU GO –?>>CORRECT.>>WE SHOULD PUSH THAT FORWARD TO THE WEEK
OF THE 16TH THROUGH THE 20TH OF APRIL.>>UNLESS YOU NEED TO DO THE REFERENCE CHECKING.
SO YOU WANT TO INTERVIEW ON A SUNDAY, IS THAT WHAT I AM HEARING?>>NO, INTERVIEW ON SATURDAY AND THEN CONVENE
IN CLOSED SESSION ON SUNDAY.>>I DO NOT NEED TO BE HERE FOR THAT.>>OK.>>HOUSE THAT? — HOW IS THAT?>>P THAT ONE MORE TIME.>>– LET’S IT REPEAT THAT ONE MORE TIME.>>THAT DATE IS
GOING TO BE CHANGED TO APRIL 7. THE NEXT STEP WILL BE THE BOARD CLOSED SESSION, SPECIAL
MEETING TO IDENTIFY FINALISTS, AND THAT MEETING WILL BE HELD ON APRIL 8, THAT IS A SUNDAY.
THE FOLLOWING WEEK , A WEEKDAY OF THE NINTH THROUGH THE 13TH OF APRIL WILL BE ON-SITE
VISITS TO THE FINALISTS SITES. SANDRA WILL BE WORKING ON THE REFERENCES THAT SAME WEEK
WHICH WOULD NOW BE APRIL 9 THROUGH THE 13TH. THE NEXT STEP IS FINALIST VISIT CAMPUS AND
ATTENDED FORUMS. THAT IS WHEN TO CHANGE TO THE WEEK OF APRIL 16 TWO THE 20TH — TO THE
20TH.>>THAT IS SPRING BREAK.>>RIGHT, THERE ARE NO CLASSES.>>WE SHOULD ACCELERATE THE FINAL ITEM, THE
SPECIAL MEETING BECAUSE THE FINALIST VISITS WILL BE DONE APRIL 27. WE SHOULD PUSH THAT
FORWARD A COUPLE OF WEEKS. WHEN SHOULD WE DO THAT FOLKS? IT WOULD BE THE WEEK OF APRIL
30 THROUGH FRIDAY, MAY 4. WE WOULD NEED TO SET UP A SPECIAL MEETING TO MAKE THE DECISION.
WEDNESDAY IS THE SECOND. DO WE WANT TO DO IT ON WEDNESDAY?>>FINE WITH ME.>>I DON’T THINK WE SHOULD DO A REGULAR BUSINESS
MEETING.>>NO.>>A SPECIAL MEETING TO IDENTIFY –>>OK, THAT SOUNDS GOOD. WE HAVE TO MOVE ON.>>WE HAVE TWO DISTINCT LEVELS OF REFERENCE
CHECKING. AFTER THE SCREENING COMMITTEE MADE A CHECK — RECOMMENDATION, WE GOT IT DOWN
TO THREE FINALISTS. WHEN IT WAS PUBLICLY KNOWN, THEY HAD MORE FREEDOM TO DO A LITTLE MORE
THOROUGH REFERENCE CHECK. I JUST WANT TO POINT THAT OUT.>>THANK YOU.>>MAY I JUST MAKE ANOTHER NOTE? WE NEED TO
AVOID APRIL 27.>>GREAT, THANK YOU. OK, WITH THAT IN MIND,
DO YOU HAVE A MOTION ON THE FLOOR?>>I MOVED WE APPROVE THE TIMELINE AS REVISED
AND CONSTRUCT CBT TO MAKE THOSE CORRECTIONS.>>DO WE HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH ANY OF THE
OTHER ITEMS DEALING WITH THE SEARCH?>>I DO HAVE ONE. I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION.
ANOTHER I HAVE THE ADVANTAGE OF BEING ON THE SEARCH COMMITTEE, AND WE WENT OVER THE DESCRIPTION
BEFORE, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO CONSIDER A VARIATION TO STRIKE ONE OF THE PHRASES ON THE DESCRIPTION.
WHEN WE MAKE A RECOMMENDATION, AND I FORGET IF IT IS UNDER PART THAT’S PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS,
THE ABILITY TO SAY NO. I UNDERSTAND WHY WE WOULD WANT TO PUT THAT ON, BUT IT FELT A LITTLE SUPERSCRIPT OF — SUPERSCRIPTIVE
TO ME. I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION TO STRIKE THAT ATTRIBUTE FROM THE DESCRIPTION.>>I THOUGHT YOU WERE THE ONE THAT PUT THAT
IN THERE.>>YEAH.>>I WAS WANTED TO HAVE FUN WITH YOU.>>ANY OTHER PROBLEMS WITH THE DESCRIPTION?
OR THE LISTS OF ADVERTISING VEHICLES? IF NOT, I WILL SUGGEST A MOTION TO APPROVE.>>MOTION TO APPROVE.>>PLEASE PRESSURE BUTTON.>>ARE WE APPROVING JUST THE POSITION DESCRIPTION?>>WE ARE APPROVING EVERYTHING. TRUSTEE VOTING
IS AFFIRMATIVE.>>ARE WE GOING TO GET THIS REVISION SENT
TO US?>>WE WILL DO THAT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. WE
WILL DO THAT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.>>I WISH I WOULD HAVE KNOWN.>>OK. THE SECOND ITEM TODAY.>>THANK YOU.>>PRESERVATION OF MIDTERM REPORT.>>THERE WAS ONE QUESTION ASKED BY TRUSTEE
MARTIN AND I HAD TO DO WITH WANTING TO KNOW THE NUMBER OF OPEN SEARCHES FOR CALIFORNIA
COMMUNITY COLLEGES RIGHT NOW. BASED ON A LIST, I WANT TO COMPLEMENT YOUR HIRING. SHE WAS
ABLE TO ACQUIRE A LIST WHICH IDENTIFIES AT LEAST 11 OPENINGS AT THIS TIME. SOME OF THEM,
VERY RECENT AND OTHERS DATING BACK TO EARLY 2017. I WANTED TO SHARE THAT WITH YOU. THERE
AT LEAST THREE NEWLY ANNOUNCED RETIREMENTS. SEVEN CONTINUING OPENINGS , AND COUNTING THE
DOCTOR, THAT WOULD MAKE 11.>>I HAVE ONE OTHER COMMENTS. I WOULD LIKE
TO RECOMMEND THAT YOU ALSO INCLUDE ADVERTISING TO THIS GROUP AS THEY ARE MEETING IN THE NEXT
TWO MONTHS. I THINK THAT WOULD BE A GOOD PLACE TO HIRE OUTREACH. EVERYBODY OK WITH THAT?>>FINE. LET’S MOVE ON.>>THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU.>>ALL COLLEGES HAVE TO SUBMIT A MIDTERM REPORT
TO THE ACCREDITATION COMMISSION FOR COMMUNITY AND JUNIOR COLLEGES. OUR REPORT IS DUE BY
THE END OF FEBRUARY. TODAY, THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING TOGETHER, AND THEY WILL BE GIVING
US AN UPDATE ON THAT MIDTERM REPORT THAT IS GOING TO BE SUBMITTED IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF
WEEKS OR SO.>>VERY HAPPY TO BE HERE TONIGHT. I GET TO
ACKNOWLEDGE MY COLLEAGUE FOR HER EXEMPLARY WORK ON THIS MIDTERM REPORT AND FOR WRANGLING
AND CONTROLLING — CAJOLING THE CAMPUS. I GET TO TURN THIS OVER TO HER AND YOU CAN LISTEN
TO HER TALK.>>THANK YOU. THANK YOU FOR HAVING US HERE
TONIGHT. I WOULD LIKE TO RECOGNIZE GILBERT FOR MAKING THE COVER FOR THE REPORT. THE WRITING
PROCESS ENDED A YEAR AND A HALF AGO. WE BEGAN FORMAL WRITING OF THIS SPECIFIC REPORT OVER
THE SUMMER OF 2017. SHE SKILLFULLY GUIDED US THROUGH THE REFINING OF THE REPORT AND
THE REVISION PROCESS. THE PROCESS FOR APPROVAL OF THE REPORT IS ACTUALLY STIPULATED IN ADMINISTRATIVE
PROCEDURE 3200. YOU CAN BE CONFIDENT THAT THE REPORT BEEF — YOU HAVE BEFORE YOU TODAY
IS A PROCESS — PRODUCT OF A PROCESS THAT HAD A LOT OF INPUT FROM EVERY CONSTITUENCY
GROUP ON CAMPUS. IT HAS BEEN APPROVED BY THE VARIOUS CONSTITUENCY GROUPS ON CAMPUS. THE
FIRST STEPS ARE THE ACCREDITATION COMMITTEE OFFERING THEIR RELIGIONS AND THEIR SUPPORT
FOR US TO SEND THE REPORT FOR THE SHARED GOVERNANCE APPROVAL PROCESS. THAT COMMITTEE HAS MEMBERSHIP
FROM VARIOUS CONSTITUENCY GROUPS. WE HAVE BOTH CURRENT AND PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS SERVING
ON THE COMMITTEE. AVAILABLE SPACES FOR ASSOCIATED STUDENTS AS WELL. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK HER
AS WELL. THIS HAS BEEN APPROVED BY BOTH THE ACADEMIC SENATE AND ALSO THE CLASSIFIED SENATE
AS WELL AS COLLEGE COUNCIL, SO YOU CAN BE ASSURED THAT THIS REPORT HAS BEEN THOROUGHLY
VETTED BY MANY DIFFERENT GROUPS ON CAMPUS. IN TERMS OF THE CONTENT, THE FIRST PORTION
IS JUST THE REPORT PREPARATION NARRATIVE. THAT IS JUST A LONGER VERSION OF WHAT I JUST
SAID. THE SECOND PORTION IS THE ACTUAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN. THERE ARE 47 OF THEM. THOSE OF 47 DIFFERENT
ACTUAL IMPROVEMENT ITEMS WERE THINGS THAT WERE IDENTIFIED IN OUR LAST INSTITUTIONAL
SELF-EVALUATION REPORT THAT WAS SUBMITTED IN 2015. THOSE ARE SELF IDENTIFIED ISSUES
THAT WE KNOW WE NEED TO JUMP ON. SOME ARE MINOR AND OTHERS ARE MORE OF AN ONGOING PROCESS.
IF YOU READ THROUGH THAT PORTION OF THE REPORT, YOU WILL NOTICE THAT THERE ARE NOT ONLY RESPONSIBLE
PARTIES IDENTIFIED, THERE ARE ALSO INDICATIONS OF WHETHER WE HAVE COMPLETE — COMPLETED THAT
AIP. THINGS THAT COULD BE ONGOING BY THE VERY NATURE WOULD BE LARGER ONES. IT IS OUR GOAL
TO CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVE. ONE METHOD WE USED TO DO THAT IS TO CONTINUALLY VIOLATE OUR PROCESSES
AND USE THE CONCLUSIONS OF THOSE VALUATIONS AS A BASIS FOR FUTURE IMPROVEMENTS. THE SECOND
— THIRD PORTION OF A REPORT ARE THE RESPONSES TO RECOMMENDATION. THEY TAKE TWO FORMS. THERE
ARE REGULATIONS TO MEET THE STANDARDS, AND THEN RECOMMENDATION FOR IMPROVEMENT UPON STANDARDS.
WE ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED TO GIVE AN EXTENSIVE ACCOUNT OR RESPONSE TO RECOMMENDATIONS TO
MEET STANDARDS IN A MIDTERM REPORT. THE RATIONALE FOR THAT IS THAT WE HAVE ADDRESSED THOSE IN
THE FOLLOW-UP REPORT. AS YOU WELL KNOW, OUR ACCREDITATION STATUS WAS FULLY REAFFIRMED
IN 2017. WE NO LONGER NEED TO GIVE AN EXTENSIVE ACCOUNT OF HOW WE HAVE MET THOSE RECOMMENDATIONS
TO MEET THE STANDARDS. IN SOME VERY RARE INSTANCES,
SOME CONTINUING WORK THAT WE HAVE DONE IN THOSE AREAS JUST TO DEMONSTRATE CONTINUOUS
IMPROVEMENT. WE ARE REQUIRED TO TALK OF THE MORE EXTENSIVELY ABOUT THE RECOMMENDATIONS
FOR IMPROVEMENT TO MEET THE STANDARDS — IMPROVEMENT UPON THE STANDARDS. RECOMMENDATION NINE WAS
A RECOMMENDATION AND STUDENT SERVICES AREA REGARDING STUDENT LEARNING OR STUDENT SERVICES
OUTCOME. UNDER HER LEADERSHIP, THEY HAVE DONE AN INCREDIBLE JOB OF DOING EVERYTHING THAT
HAS BEEN ASKED OF US. THEY HAVE REALLY DONE EVERYTHING THAT THEY HAVE NEEDED TO DO AND
HAVE GUN — GONE ABOVE AND BEYOND. WE ARE REQUIRED TO SUBMIT AN ANNUAL REPORT AND WE
REPORT ON VARIOUS THINGS SUCH AS COMPLETION RATES, TRANSFER RATES LOCATIONAL PROGRAM,
MEASURES OF SUCCESS, AS WELL AS PHYSICAL DATA. IN THE MIDTERM REPORT, WE ARE SIMPLY REQUIRED
TO TAKE A LOOK AT THAT FOR YEARS WORTH OF DATA AND GIVE AN ANALYSIS OF THE DATA. YOU
WILL NOTICE IN THE REPORTS, THERE IS DATA ANALYSIS FOR CERTAIN SECTIONS AND NOT NECESSARILY
FOR OTHERS TO THAT IS BECAUSE WE ARE NOT REQUIRED TO IN THOSE OTHER SECTIONS. WHERE WE DO HAVE
TO PROVIDE AN ANALYSIS, BUT WE HAVE DONE REALLY WELL, AND THE AREAS THAT WE KNOW WE ARE SUCCEEDING
IN AND AREAS WHERE WE CAN INSTITUTE SOME MEASURES FOR IMPROVEMENT AND SOME POSSIBILITIES FOR
IMPROVEMENT WERE INDICATED IN THE REPORT. THEY HAVE THAT DEEP COMMITMENT TO INSTITUTIONS
FOCUSING ON CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT. IN ORDER TO CLOSE THE LOOP, THERE ARE A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT
AREAS. ONGOING IMPROVEMENT PLANS, CAMPUS CLIMATE, THAT IS SOMETHING WEEK SHOULD BE CONTINUOUSLY
IMPROVING UPON. WE HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB OF MAKING SURE THAT WE ARE IMPROVING COLLEGIALITY
ON CAMPUS AND A SENSE OF ETHICS ON CAMPUS. STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES, THE COLLEGE ALREADY
HAS STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES AT THE COURSE LEVELS. IN FUTURE YEARS, WE PLAN TO FOCUS
A LITTLE BIT MORE ON REFINING OUR PROGRAM LEVEL OUTCOMES AND THE CREATION OF INSTITUTIONAL
STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES AND BETTER METHODS OF ASSESSMENT FOR THOSE LEARNING OUTCOMES
AND HOW TO IMPROVE ON THE BASIS OF THAT ASSESSMENT. LASTLY, OUR INSTITUTIONAL SET STANDARDS WERE
ALSO MENTIONED IN THE DATA ANALYSIS SECTION OF THE REPORT. THOSE ARE JUST THE EXPECTATIONS
WE HAVE OF OURSELVES TO IN MANY INSTANCES, WE HAVE FAR EXCEEDED THOSE STANDARDS. THESE
ARE NOT BINDING, BUT THEY ARE ASPIRATIONAL. IN SEVERAL CASES, WE ARE COMING VERY CLOSE
TO MEETING OUR STRETCH GOALS, WHICH IS A REAL TESTAMENT TO THE WORK OF EVERYBODY ON CAMPUS
TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE PROVIDING THE HIGHEST QUALITY EDUCATION TO OUR STUDENTS THAT WE
CAN. WHEN I MET THESE GOALS AND EXCEEDED THEM, IT IS OUR JOB TO CREATE A STRETCH GOALS SO
WE CAN CONTINUOUSLY PRESSURE OURSELVES TO DO BETTER. THAT IS IT FOR THE MIDTERM REPORT.
DO HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. RATE REPORT. I THINK
IT ALSO REFLECTS THE NEW STANDARD FOR KINDLY AND GENTLER STANCES. I MAY HAVE MISSED IT.
WHAT WAS THE ONE IMPROVEMENT WOULD BE NEEDED TO MAKE?>>SHE CAN PROBABLY SPEAK TO THIS A MUCH GREATER
DEPTH THAN I CAN, BUT IT WAS A RECOMMENDATION IN THE STUDENT SERVICES AREA FOR STUDENT SERVICES
OUTCOME. THE PRESENT ITEM — IMPROVEMENT ITEM WAS SPECIFICALLY TO ANNOUNCE THE CYCLE AND
ALSO TO ENSURE THAT THE FACULTY AND STAFF AND STUDENT SERVICES WERE AWARE OF THE STUDENT
LEARNING OUTCOMES CYCLE AS WELL.>>ON THE STRETCH GOALS, I KNOW ONE OF THE
THINGS WE HAVE TALKS ABOUT THE STATE LEVEL IS REALLY ENCOURAGING CAMPUSES TO FEEL LIKE
THEY’RE NOT GOING TO BE PUNISHED FOR DOING SOMETHING INNOVATIVE. HOW ARE YOU ABLE TO
INCORPORATE STRETCH GOALS WITHOUT BEING MEASURED NEGATIVELY IF YOU DON’T REACH THOSE?>>THEY’VE MADE VERY CLEAR THAT THESE ARE
ASPIRATIONAL. IF WE DO NOT MEET THEM, THERE IS NO DAMAGE DONE. IT IS A SOMETHING WE CAN
ASPIRE TO WITHIN THE CAMPUS COMMUNITY. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT GROUPS THAT ARE
RESPONSIBLE FOR CREATING THE STRETCH GOALS. PLANNING AND PRIORITIES PLAYS A HUGE ROLE.
CONSULTATION WITH THE ACADEMIC SENATE IS IMPORTANT HERE. IN ALL OF THOSE GROUPS, OBVIOUSLY ACADEMICS.
THERE HAS BEEN A MUCH DEEPER LEVEL OF COLLABORATION BETWEEN THE ACCREDITATION COMMITTEE IN THE
PLANNING COMMITTEE TO FIGURE OUT WHERE ARE THERE OVERLAPPING REQUIREMENTS. WHAT IS REASONABLE
TO SET AS A STRETCH GOAL OR IF YOU DO NOT WHAT YOUR GOAL TO BE SO ASPIRATIONAL THAT
IT IS JUST POINTLESS. WE DID A LOT IN TERMS OF ANALYZING TRENDS. WHERE DO WE THINK WE
CAN GO WITHIN THE NEXT TWO YEARS? — FEW YEARS? I WOULD HOPE THAT EVERYONE INVOLVED IN THIS
PROCESS AGREES THAT THOSE STRETCH GOALS ARE REASONABLE AND THAT WE DO HAVE THE CAPABILITY
OF MEETING THEM AS LONG AS WE MAKE SURE WE ARE FOCUSED ON THEM. THERE IS NOTHING PUNITIVE
THAT OCCURS IF WE DO NOT MEAN THEM. — MEET THEM. BUT WE WANT TO.>>THANK YOU.>>ANY OTHER QUESTIONS ARE COMMENTS?>>THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. THE RECOMMENDATION
IS TO APPROVE THE MIDTERM REPORT.>>VERY GOOD.>>IT IS A UNANIMOUS VOTE WITH THE STUDENT
TRUSTEE VOTING IN THE AFFIRMATIVE. OUR THIRD ACTION ITEM TODAY IS THE GGG KKK WORKS REPORT.>>I WOULD LIKE YOU TO ASK TO MAKE A STATEMENT
ABOUT WHERE WE ARE GOING FROM NOW ON.>>I WOULD LIKE TO PROVIDE A BEEF — BRIEF
UPDATE ON THE GOVERNOR’S BUDGET. IN JANUARY 10, THE GOVERNOR’S PROPOSED BUDGET WAS RELEASED.
IT INCLUDED A CHANGE IN THE FUNDING FOR THE U BUILDING PRODUCT THAT’S PROJECT. IT WAS
ORIGINALLY FUNDED AS A 100% STATE-FUNDED PROJECT. IN THE PROPOSED BUDGET, THAT CHANGES TO BE
A 50% MATCH PROJECT. THE COLLEGE WOULD BE REQUIRED TO MATCH THE FUNDING FOR THE PROJECT
50%. THAT IS APPROXIMATELY $30 MILLION. ON TOP OF THAT, THE STATE IS NOT PROVIDING TOTAL
FUNDING FOR COST ESCALATIONS. IF RAW MATERIALS GO UP, COST OF LABOR GOES UP, WE ANTICIPATE
THOSE ESCALATIONS TO BE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF THE SIX LANE DOLLARS TO $8 MILLION. THE
COLLEGE WOULD BE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE MATCH FUNDING IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF $38 MILLION.
IT IS NOT FINAL YET, WE WILL NOT KNOW UNTIL THE MAYOR REVISE AND AFTER THE BUDGET IS SIGNED
INTO LAW ON JUNE 30. IF IT IS SIGNED INTO LAW, IT WOULD BE A HUGE HURDLE FOR US TO OVERCOME
THE TYPE OF MATCH. WITH THAT, I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE — [LAUGHTER]>>I DO NOT HAVE $38 MILLION. HE IS OUR PRINCIPAL
ARCHITECT. HE HAS BEEN DOING EXCELLENT WORK FOR US IN DEVELOPING THE PRELIMINARY PLANS.
HE IS HERE TO PROVIDE AN UPDATE.>>THANK YOU. SORRY FOR THE SOUR NEWS. WE
DO HAVE AN EXCITING PROJECT THAT WE WANTED TO GIVE YOU A SHORT UPDATE ON AND TIE YOU
WHAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING TO DEVELOP PROJECT. MY NAME IS DAVID AND I AM THE PRINCIPLE OF
THE FIRM. I HAVE MY COLLEAGUE CARE WHO IS PROJECT MANAGER AND PRINCIPLE IN OUR PASADENA
OFFICE. FOR THIS PROJECT, WE STARTED WITH THE FINAL, WHAT WE CALL THE FINAL PROJECT
PROPOSAL THAT YOU SUBMITTED TO THE STATE AND THE STATE APPROVED. AND WHAT THEY CALL SPP
— FPP, THAT ESTABLISHED THE PROGRAM FOR THE BUILDING WHICH WAS A REPLACEMENT FOR THE U
BUILDING. IT WOULD BE THE SAME SIZE AS THE EXISTING U BUILDING ROOM SIZES AND IT ALSO
HAD SOME IDEAS ABOUT THE DESIGN OF THE BUILDING IN THE APPROVED FPP. THAT WAS OUR STARTING
POINT. IT PROVED TO BE NOT TOO MUCH FLUX ABILITY OF THE STATE LEVEL ON THAT DESIGN. NONETHELESS,
WE MET WITH USERS IN THE BUILDING, THE NURSING AND THE SCIENCE DEPARTMENTS, AND WE WERE ABLE
TO DEVELOP THE CLASSROOMS AND LABS TO THE WAY THEY WANTED THEM TO WORK FOR THE STUDENTS
FOR THE BEST LEARNING OUTCOMES. WE ARE ABLE TO REALLY MODIFY THE INTERIORS OF THESE LARGE
BLOCKS OF SPACES, ABOUT 1200 OR 1500 SQUARE FEET, AND REALLY DEVELOP THAT BASED ON WHAT
THE FACULTY IS LOOKING FOR IN TERMS OF THE TEACHING. WE ALSO MET WITH YOUR FACILITIES
DEPARTMENT. WE HAVE HAD DISCUSSIONS WITH WHO WILL EVENTUALLY PERMIT THIS BUILDING. THE
FIRE TO PERMIT HERE AND ALL OF OUR ENGINEERS. — FIRE DEPARTMENT HERE AND ALL OF OUR ENGINEERS.
TECHNOLOGY, NECKLACE SCIENCES, ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, BIOLOGY, BIOLOGY, BIOTECHNOLOGY, AND PHYSIOLOGY.
THERE IS A REALLY EXCITING PROGRAM OR PLACING THOSE AREAS IN YOUR TEMP BURY — TEMPORARY
MODULAR BUILDINGS. THE BUILDING IS FIVE STORIES, 58,000 ASSIGNABLE SQUARE FOOTAGE, AND OVER
90,000 SQUARE FEET IN TOTAL. THE PROCESS THAT WE WENT THROUGH HERE IS A FIRST, WE GOT SOME
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THE SITE, WE DEVELOPED A SITE SURVEY, A TOPOGRAPHIC SURVEY THAT STUDIES
THE SLOPES AND CONFIGURATION OF THE SITE AROUND THE SCULPTURE GARDEN OF THE YOU BUILDING — U
BUILDING. WE UNDERSTOOD WHERE THE UTILITIES ARE CURRENTLY LOCATED. BASED ON THE SITE SURVEYS,
WHICH WAS RELATIVELY NEW INFORMATION, WE WERE ABLE TO CONVINCE THE STATE TO ALLOW US TO
RECONFIGURE WHERE THE BUILDING WAS GOING TO BE LOCATED IN THE FOOTPRINT OF THE YOU BUILDING
— U BUILDING. IT HAS BEEN PROPOSED TO BE ON A 45 DEGREE ANGLE. WE BROUGHT IT BACK TO
A NORTH FINAL CONFIGURATION. WE SAVED MONEY BY NOT HAVING TO CUT INTO THE SLOPES AROUND
THE CIRCULAR PLAZA. WE DID FIND THAT WE NEED EIGHT FEET OF OVER EXCAVATION, WHICH WAS A
LITTLE BIT OF A SURPRISE. WE DO NOT NEED ANY OTHER TYPES OF FOOTINGS. WE FOUND THE INFORMATION
FROM THE GEOTECH REPORT. SUSTAINABILITY STUDIES, WHAT WERE GOING TO BE INCORPORATED INTO THE
BUILDING WILL BE HIGH-EFFICIENCY ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS, HIGH-EFFICIENCY WINDOWS GLAZING,
WATER EFFICIENCY, LIGHTING. SO FAR, FURTHER DESIGN AESTHETICS ON THE ELEVATIONS AND MATERIAL
CHOICES. WE HAVE EVALUATED DIFFERENT BUILDING SYSTEMS AND OPTIONS. COMING UP WE WILL BE
MEETING WITH THE USERS SOME MORE TO REALLY TALK ABOUT THE FINE DETAILS OF WHERE THEY
WANT THE ELECTRICAL OUTLETS AND LIGHTS AND CONTROLS AND AV AND TEACHING STATIONS AND
ALL OF THE DETAILS OF THE PROJECT. WE WILL BE REFINING THE DESIGN AS WELL. WHAT YOU SEE
HERE IS THE LOCATION, TO GIVE YOU SOME ORIENTATION, TO THE TOP IS THE LIBRARY, TO THE BOTTOM RIGHT
IS THE PARKING STRUCTURE FIVE. THE RED LINE IS WHERE THE U BUILDING IS CURRENTLY. THAT
IS A FOUR STORY BUILDING. WE ARE FOLLOWING THE NEW BUILDING IS THE BLUE LINE THERE. IT
IS A FIVE-STORY BUILDING. IT IS MORE OR LESS IN THE SAME FOOTPRINT AS THE U BUILDING. THIS
IS A THREE-DIMENSIONAL STUDY OF THE CAMPUS SHOWING THE NEW BUILDING AND ITS LOCATION.
ON THE LEFT, YOU CAN TO THE LIBRARY. ON THE VERY BOTTOM IS COLORADO. YOU CAN SEE THE BUILDING
THERE OVERLOOKING THE QUAD AND SCULPTURE GARDEN. THIS IS A VIEW OF THE BUILDING FROM THE SCULPTURE
GARDEN. THE PREDOMINANT MATERIALS ARE PLASTER, STUCCO, COMPOSITE MATERIALS ARE THE ORANGE
COLORS. WE ARE VERY CONCEPTUAL RIGHT NOW, WE STILL WORKING ON THESE THINGS. THIS IS
A VIEW FROM MORE OR LESS THE CENTER OF THE ARTS LOOKING UP TO THE LIBRARY. YOU CAN TO
THE FIVE-STORY BUILDING. ONE STORY IS MORE OR LESS HIDDEN BELOW THE SLOPE, SO IT APPEARS
TO BE A FOUR-STORY BUILDING, BUT IT IS A FIVE-STORY BUILDING. ON THE LEFT-HAND SIDE FACING THE
QUAD IS PRIMARILY CIRCULATION SO PEOPLE WILL HAVE NICE VIEWS AS THEY GO INTO THEIR CLASSROOMS.
FOR OUR NEXT STEPS, WE’RE GOING TO WRAP THIS FACE UP IN WHAT WE CALL MORE OR LESS DESIGN
DEVELOPMENT. THAT WILL BE SUBMITTED PER THE STATE TEMPLARS SCHEDULE REQUIREMENTS AT THE
END OF MARCH. YOU HAVE MARCH, APRIL, MAY AND JUNE TO REVIEW ALL OF THE INFORMATION AND
TO APPROVE THE NEXT PHASE OF DESIGN WHICH IS THE CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS OR WORKING DRAWINGS.
THAT IS A SEPARATE FUNDING INCREMENT. WE WOULD GO ON TO THE ESSAY — DSA. SIX MONTHS FOR
DSA APPROVAL. THAT IS THE UPDATE FOR THE PROJECT AND IF ANYBODY HAS ANY QUESTIONS?>>THANK YOU. BASED ON THE PREVIOUS REPORTS,
I REALIZE THIS, IS SOMETHING LIKE STRAIGHTENING THE LAWN CHAIRS ON THE TITANIC. I THINK I
AM GOING TO MAKE IT ANYWAY BECAUSE WE ARE GOING TO HAPPEN. I WANT TO FIRST THANK YOU
FOR ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK AND I THINK SEEING SOMETHING IN THE GREAT COMPUTER GRAPHICS YOU
HAVE HERE, I AM SQUARE TO SAY THIS SHORT AND PHYSICALLY. I THINK YOU DESIGNED A BEAUTIFUL
BUILDING. IF I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE 10, AND LOOKED OVER AND SAW THAT, I WOULD SAY THAT
IS A BEAUTIFUL BUILDING. I THINK WE ARE MISSING SOMETHING. IF YOU GO ON OUR NEIGHBORING CAMPUS
AT CALTECH, TO HAVE THESE BEAUTIFUL OLD ICONIC ACADEMIC BUILDINGS, AND THEN THEY PUT THIS
NEW MODERN BUILDING AT THE END OF SOME RIVER AND I’VE ACTUALLY HAD SOME OTHER ARCHITECTS
SAY TO ME WHY DID YOU DO THAT? WE CANNOT UNDERSTAND. I THINK WE DRIVE BY SOME BUILDINGS AND WE
SAY TO OURSELVES THAT BUILDING IS SO 70’S. THOUGH I THINK YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL BUILDING,
I THINK WE MAY NEED MISSING THE FACT THAT PCC IS RENOWNED, IT’S ON HER SIMPLE, IT’S
WHAT WE ARE, THESE ICONIC SHAPES THAT ARE RELATIVELY TIMELESS. WE HAVE THESE OF THREE
BUILDINGS. WILLIE DEVELOPED THE LIBRARY, WE TRY TO FOLLOW THE SAME BASIC FEEL AN ARCHITECTURAL
DESIGN BACK TO THAT SAME ICONIC STRUCTURE. HERE ARE THIS BUILDING IS, WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY
TO ALMOST PARALLEL WHAT WE ARE DOING TO OUR FORMAL ENTRY WHERE YOU HAVE THREE ICONIC BUILDINGS,
NO ONE HAS EVER SAID THAT IS A 70’S BUILDING AND IN 80’S BUILDING AND A 90’S BUILDING IT
THESE BUILDINGS ARE TIMELESS. WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY BETWEEN THE C BUILDING AND THE LIBRARY AND
THIS BUILDING, IF THIS BUILDING WERE TO BE A SIMILAR ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN, TO MAGNIFY
THAT SAME IMPRINT THAT WE ARE DOING ON THE FRONT AND CREATE YET ONE MORE TIMELESS BUILDING
THAT TAKES YOU DEEP INTO THE ROOTS OF KNOWLEDGE AND GIVES YOU THIS TREMENDOUS FEEL AS YOU
COME ACROSS IT. THOUGH I THINK IT IS A BEAUTIFUL BUILDING, TO NOT CAPITALIZE ON OF THE OPPORTUNITY
WE HAVE WITH OUR OTHER ICONIC BUILDINGS, I THINK WOULD BE AN ARCHITECTURAL MISS.>>UNFORTUNATELY, WAS SUBMITTED TO THE STATE
INCLUDED DETAILS THAT ARE REFLECTED IN THIS DESIGN. IDEALLY, WE WOULD HAVE A LOT MORE
FLEXIBILITY TO COME UP WITH A DESIGN CONCEPT THAT COULD BE DIFFERENT FROM THIS AND MORE
ARCHITECTURALLY CONSISTENT WITH THE CAMPUS, BUT WE ARE WORKING UNDER SET PARAMETERS THAT
UNFORTUNATELY WERE SUBMITTED FIVE OR SIX YEARS AGO WITH THE INITIAL PROJECT PROPOSAL. THEY
WERE APPROVED WITH THE FTP — FPP AND CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE. WE HAVE TRIED TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS,
WE TRIED TO GO TO A FOUR-STORY BUILDING INSTEAD OF A FIVE-STORY BUILDING AND MAKE ADJUSTMENTS,
BUT BECAUSE THE PROJECT WAS APPROVED AS AN EMERGENCY REPLACEMENT PROJECT AND ORIGINALLY
SLATED FOR 100% FUNDING, THERE HAS BEEN BASICALLY NO FLEXIBILITY. WE HAVE RECEIVED SOME FLEXIBILITY
IN MOVING THE POSITION OF THE BUILDING, BUT UNFORTUNATELY, THINGS LIKE THIS, THE DESIGN,
THE SITING ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING, THAT WAS ALL INCLUDED IN THE FPP. WE DO NOT
HAVE A LOT OF FLEXIBILITY, UNFORTUNATELY.>>ANY OTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS?>>I WAS GOING TO FURTHER REARRANGE THE DECK
CHAIRS ON THE TITANIC IN SUPPORT OF WHAT TRUSTEE MARTIN JUST SAID. AT THE TIME WE APPROVED
THE SELECTION FOR THE ARCHITECTURAL FIRM, THAT WAS ONE OF OUR CONCERNS. WHAT YOU ARE
SAYING IS THAT THE DEGREE OF LIMITATION IS SO EXTREME IT EVEN INCLUDES THE EXTERIOR ELEVATION
AND BUILDING MATERIAL SELECTION?>>THAT IS CORRECT.>>I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT WE HAVE
VARIED FROM THAT TO SOME DEGREE. TO THAT DEGREE, WE HAVE MADE SOME VARIATIONS FROM THE. THEY
ARE NOT APPROVED GET FROM THE STATE. WE STILL HAVE A STEP TO GO TO SEE IF EVEN AS MODERN
OR DIVERTED AS THIS IS, THE ONE THAT WAS APPROVED WAS EVEN MORE DIVERGENT FROM A MORE TRADITIONAL
— WHAT WE HAVE TRIED TO DO IS GIVE THIS SOME SKILLED BREAKDOWN SO YOU CAN SEE THAT IT HAS
SOME SCALE, SOME OVERHANGS. THOSE ARE STILL GOING TO BE HEAVILY DEBATED. THE FPP THAT
WAS APPROVED, I WOULD NOT WANT TO DISPARAGE IT, BUT IT WAS PRETTY MUCH A BOX WITH SOME
WINDOWS IN IT. THIS WOULD SHOW SOME IMPROVEMENT IN BREAKING DOWN THE SCALE AND HAVING MORE
WINDOWS THEN WAS ORIGINALLY ANTICIPATED SO THAT THESE CORRIDORS TO GET SOME LIGHT INTO
THEM. THEY STILL HAVE THIS WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE LEVELS, THE FLOORS, THAT HELPS BREAK DOWN
THE SCALE OF THE BUILDING AS OPPOSED TO ONE MASSIVE STUCCO WALL FOR EXAMPLE. THERE WAS
A PREDOMINANCE OF CONCRETE, EXPOSED CONCRETE AND A STUCCO IN THE FPP WITH SMALL PUNCH WINDOWS.
YOU ARE TRYING TO WORK WITH WHAT WE HAD AND BRING IN SOME ELEMENTS THAT MAY NOT MIRROR
UP WITH SOME OF THE VERNACULAR THAT YOU CURRENTLY HAVE, BUT STILL IS A GOOD BUILDING AND STILL
HAS SOME STABILITY FEATURES THAT YOU CAN BE PROUD OF. IT IS AN ENERGY-EFFICIENT BUILDING,
AND A STATE-OF-THE-ART BUILDING. THE PERFORMING ARTS BUILDING WAS A DIVERGENCE AS WELL. I
TOTALLY APPRECIATE WHERE YOU’RE COMING FROM AND THAT IS REALLY A PHILOSOPHY THAT THE BOARD
— AT THE BOARD’S PLEASURE. WE WOULD HAVE HAD THAT DISCUSSION ABOUT TUESDAY WITH TRADITION,
OR DO WE MOVED TO LOOKING AT FUTURE OR DIFFERENT KINDS OF IDEAS AND ARCHITECTURE, AND THOSE
IDEAS COULD HAVE BEEN ADDED.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>SURE.>>THE ADMINISTRATION WILL BE COMING TO THE
BOARD ON FEBRUARY 21 TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION ON THIS PROJECT, HOPEFULLY. I LOOK FOR A MOTION
TO RECEIVE AND FILE?>>I WILL SECOND IT.>>UNANIMOUS TO RECEIVE AND FILE.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>THANK YOU.>>THE NEXT ITEM.>>PLEASE TO HAVE SEVERAL REPORTS THAT WE
SUBMITTED TO THE STATE. THE STATE REQUIRES THAT WE INTEGRATE THE BASIC SKILLS INITIATIVE,
THE EQUITY PLAN. WE HAVE OUR BRAND-NEW DIRECTOR OF STUDENT EQUITY WHO WILL BE PRESENTING THIS
REPORT TO US.>>GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE. WHEN I WAS INTRODUCED
TO THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES AT THIS PAST JULY, HE SHARED THAT BOTH OF MY PARENTS WERE FIRST-GENERATION
COLLEGE STUDENTS. THIS ALL TO REALLY CREATED A MULTIGENERATIONAL IMPACT THAT NOW ALLOWS
ME TO STAND BEFORE YOU AS A DOCTOR. IT IS IN THAT SAME SPIRIT OF FULFILLING OUR PROMISE
TO THE COMMUNITY THAT WE SERVE AND THE BELIEF THAT IT IMPACTS THE STUDENTS AND MANY MORE
AROUND THEM, BUT I AM PRIVILEGED TO ANNOUNCE TO YOU THE 27TH — 2018-2019 STUDENT OR — REPORT
AND EQUITY PROGRAM. THE BASIC SKILLS INITIATIVE OR BSI, STUDENT EQUITY AND STUDENT SUCCESS
REPORT PROGRAM. WE WILL THEN LOOK AT THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH IT WAS CONCEPTUALIZED AND ULTIMATELY
PUT INTO ITS PRESENT FORM FOR THE INPUT OF THE MULTIPLE CONSTITUENCY GROUPS THAT MAKE
UP PCC. FINALLY, WE WILL LOOK AT WHETHER THE FIVE INTEGRATED SUCCESS GOALS THAT REPRESENT
THE GUIDEPOSTS MOVING FORWARD. BSI, STUDENT EQUITY, AND SSSB — OUR COLLEAGUES IN THE
MATH DEPARTMENT HAS ADMINISTERED THE FUNDING TO SUPPORT NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND ACTIVITIES
THAT MOVE US FOR DATA REFORM AND ACCELERATION MODELS AND OTHER PRACTICES THAT HELP MOVE
OUR STUDENTS TOWARD COLLEGE COURSEWORK IN THEIR ACADEMIC AND CAREER GOALS. STUDENT EQUITY
IS FOCUSED ON PROMOTING STUDENT SUCCESS FOR ALL OF OUR STUDENTS THROUGHOUT THE COLLEGE,
REGARDLESS OF THE BARRIERS THAT PLACE SOME STUDENTS AT A DISADVANTAGE. THROUGH THE SUPPORT
OF OUR COLLEAGUES IN THE OFFICE OF INSTITUTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS
AND A HOST OF STUDENT SERVICE MANAGERS, WE HAVE LOOKED AT DATA THAT SHOWS DISPROPORTIONATE
IMPACTS ACROSS THE SUCCESS INDICATORS OF ACCESS, BASIC SKILLS COMPLETION, RETENTION, DEGREE
AND CERTIFICATE COMPLETION, AND TRANSFER FOR CURRENT OR FORMER FOSTER YOUTH, STUDENTS WITH
DISABILITIES, LOW INCOME STUDENTS, AND VETERANS. SSSP WORKS TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL STUDENTS
PROMPTLY TO FIND THEIR EDUCATIONAL GOALS, COMPLETE THE GOALS, AND ACHIEVE THEIR EDUCATIONAL
BUDGET — OBJECTIVES IN A TIMELY MANNER. OUR COLLEAGUES THROUGHOUT THE COLLEGE HAVE WORKED
TO COME UP WITH NEW AND MORE IMPACTFUL WAYS TO ACHIEVE THESE THINGS. ALL OF THESE INITIATIVES
SHARED PURPOSE AND SUPPORTING STUDENT SUCCESS WHILE CLOSING ACHIEVEMENT GAPS. TO REFLECT
ON THE PREVIOUS EFFORTS DURING THE 2016 2017 ACADEMIC YEAR, AND TO IDENTIFY FIVE GOALS
AND ASSOCIATED ACTIVITIES THAT CUT ACROSS THEM AND SUPPORT STUDENT SUCCESS. WE AT PCC
FORMED A STUDY GROUP WITH KEY SEMESTERS BEING SPRING AND FALL PLAY 17. — SPRING 2017. TO
GROUND OURSELVES IN UNDERSTANDING THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE ASSIGNMENT BEFORE US AND HELP WEEKLY
MEETINGS ON TUESDAYS, OFTEN IN THE LIBRARY TERRACE. WE WILL BE RESUMING THAT SCHEDULE
ON A VERY SEVENTH AND ENCOURAGE ANYONE INTERESTED IN JOINING. THIS BRINGS US TO TODAY AS WE
NEAR THE HOMEWORK DUE DATE WHICH IS NEXT WEDNESDAY. THE FIVE INTEGRATED STUDENT SUCCESS GOALS
THAT WE IDENTIFIED THIS PROCESS ARE CONSISTENT WITH PCC’S MISSION, VISION, AND EDUCATIONAL
MASTER PLAN. THE FIRST GOAL IS TO BUILD STUDENT PATHWAYS FROM NONCREDIT TO CREDIT AS WELL
AS PATHWAYS TO COMPLETION. WE ARE COMMITTED TO BUILDING ON THE SUCCESSES THEY EXPERIENCE
IN THE NONCREDIT DIVISION AND STREAMLINING THEIR TRANSITION INTO THE CREDIT SIDE. RESEARCH
HAS SHOWN THAT THE LONGER STUDENTS SPENT IN NAVIGATING COMMITTEE JUST COMMUNITY COLLEGE
COURSEWORK, THE LESS LIKELY THEY ARE TO COMPLETE. THE SECOND GOAL IS TO DECREASE THE ACHIEVEMENT
GAP BY 4% FOR DISPROPORTIONATELY GROUPS. LET YOU KNOW STUDENTS WHO CONSTITUTE THE MAJORITY
OF STUDENTS AT PCC, AS THAT’S EXPERIENCE EQUITY GAPS. AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDENTS EXPENSE EQUITY
GAPS ACROSS ALL FIVE SUCCESS INDICATORS. IF WE LOOK TO OUR MOST RECENT LEASE AND DATA,
THE OVERALL COMPLETION RATE IS 54.4%, WHILE LATINOS AND AFRICAN-AMERICANS EXTRINSICALLY
SHOULD RATE OF 42.9%. WE CURRENTLY SEE AN 11.5 GAP. AFTER MUCH DISCUSSION AMONGST THE
COMMITTEE, WE FOUND THIS GAP TO BE SIGNIFICANT AND ACHIEVABLE. THE THIRD GOAL IS TO IMPROVE
SUCCESS RATES FOR STUDENTS TO COMPLETE A DEGREE APPLICABLE COURSE AFTER HAVING COMPLETED ANY
BASIC SKILLS COURSE. THIS WILL HELP SUPPORT THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS WHO HAVE SUCCESS IN
BASIC CLASSES THROUGH CONTINUED INSTRUCTION AND ADOPTION OF ACCELERATION METHODS THAT
PROVIDES STUDENTS WITH THE FOUNDATION NEEDED TO MOVE OUT OF DEVELOPMENT WILL EDUCATION
AND INTO COLLEGE-LEVEL COURSEWORK OR THAT ARE CLOSER TO ACHIEVING THEIR DEGREE AND CERTIFICATE
GOALS. IT IS ALSO IN LINE WITH RECENTLY ADOPTED STATE LEGISLATION ASSEMBLY BILL 705. OUR FOURTH
GOAL IS TO PROVIDE CONSISTENT AND COMPREHENSIVE OPPORTUNITIES FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
BETTER EQUITY MINDED AND STUDENT CENTERED TO INCREASE STUDENT RETENTION. WE ARE CONFIDENT
THAT WE CAN IDENTIFY MEANINGFUL AND ONGOING OPPORTUNITIES FOR FACULTY AND STAFF TO SEE
AND EMBRACE THE ROLES THAT WE EACH PLATE AND STUDENT SUCCESS. OUR FIFTH GOAL IS TO DEEPEN
THE COLLABORATIONS WITH HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICTS, WORKFORCE AGENCIES, AND OTHER COMMITTEE PARTNERS
TO INCREASE STUDENT AND COLLEGE READINESS. EDUCATORS, EMPLOYEES, — EMPLOYERS, THAT COULD
STRENGTHEN A PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF OUR STUDENTS AND THESE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC
HEALTH OF OUR REGION AS A WHOLE. WE BELIEVE THAT STRENGTHENING THESE PARTNERSHIPS WHILE
DEVELOPING NEW ONES WILL ONLY MAKE OUR STUDENTS, OUR ABILITY IS AS A COLLEGE IN OUR DISTRICT
BETTER. THIS PRESENTATION REFLECTS THE WORK OF NUMEROUS FACULTY, STAFF, AND STUDENTS AT
PCC. I THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND WELCOME ANY QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS YOU MAY HAVE.>>THANK YOU. I DO WANT TO MAKE ONE COMMENT.
ALL OF THESE REPORTS TONIGHT HAVE TAKEN A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF REPORT. — WORK. I WANT
TO SEE HOW MUCH WE APPRECIATED AND THE WORK THAT WAS INVOLVED IN THESE ARID THANK YOU.>>I DIDN’T WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THIS REPORT.
I THOUGHT IT WAS REALLY COMPREHENSIVE AND HAPPILY ONE OF THE BEST REPORTS I HAVE SEEN
ON HOW WE ARE GOING TO ACHIEVE THIS SUCCESS AND REALLY INTEGRATE. ONE OF THE THINGS I
DID WANT TO REMIND THE CAMPUS OF IS — WE’RE THE SECOND LARGEST STUDENT POPULATION.
ALTHOUGH WE HAVE ACHIEVED GREAT SUCCESS, WE ALSO KNOW THAT MANY OF THE STUDENTS WHO ARE
NOT ACHIEVING GET BLANKETED UNDER THAT MODEL MINORITY. JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT WE KEEP AN
EYE AND ALL OF OUR STUDENTS ACHIEVE SUCCESS.>>THANK YOU FOR THE COMMENTS, AND ALSO FOR
THE COMMENT AND REMINDER. I THINK THAT WE MADE A PURPOSEFUL MOVE WHEN WRITING THE ASSOCIATED
ACTIVITIES FOR EACH OF THE GOALS TO INCLUDE OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH THE OFFICE OF INSTITUTIONAL
EFFECTIVENESS AND CONSTANTLY DOING DIFFERENT STUDIES, MIXED METHOD STUDIES THAT REALLY
GET EXPANSES OF STUDENTS BECAUSE I WOULD SAY THAT MOST IF NOT ALL OF OUR COMMITTEE MEMBERS
DO RECOGNIZE THAT AGGREGATING DATA BECOMES VERY PROBLEMATIC EVEN WITHIN THE LATINO COMMUNITY.
THAT IS AN AGGREGATE OF OVER 30 DIFFERENT EDGAR — ETHNIC GROUPS. WE WANT TO CONTINUALLY
LOOK AT WAYS TO GET AT UNDERSTANDINGS, IF IT IS A SOCIOECONOMIC, OR FAMILY HISTORY MAY
DIFFER FROM ANY BLANKET NUMBER WE MIGHT SEE.>>I ALSO WANT TO REASSURE THE BOARD AND THE
COMMITTEE THAT PCC IS MAKING A CONSCIOUS EFFORT, NOT ONLY TO BRIDGE THE ACHIEVEMENT GAP, BUT
ALSO TO BRING SOME FORMAL HARMONY ON THIS CAMPUS TO ENSURE THAT ALL THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS
WHO ARE AT THIS COLLEGE UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE HERE TO MAKE THIS SCHOOL AND MODEL INSTITUTION
WHERE WE RESPECT EVERY STUDENT, EVERY FACULTY, EVERY STAFF MEMBER REGARDLESS OF ETHNICITY,
REGARDLESS OF RACE, REGARDLESS OF ANYTHING. AS YOU WE HAVE HIRED A DIRECTOR OF PROFESSIONAL
DEVELOPMENT. WE ALSO ARE BRINGING IN TWO ADDITIONAL MANAGERS WHO WILL BE HELPING WITH AFRICAN-AMERICAN
STUDENTS, WITH LATINO STUDENTS, AND ALSO THE ASIAN COMMUNITY. SO I WANT EVERYBODY TO BE
REST ASSURED THAT THIS IS OUR GOAL AND WE WANT TO BE A MODEL SCHOOL IN CALIFORNIA WHEN
IT COMES TO THIS.>>THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. FOR BEING
HERE. THE ACTION ITEM TONIGHT IS TO APPROVE THE INTEGRATED STUDENT SUCCESS PLANS.>>SECOND.>>WE HAVE A MOTION. A SECOND. FURTHER DISCUSSION?
THE TRUSTEES AND STUDENT TRUSTEE VOTE UNANIMOUSLY IN THE POSITIVE. THE NEXT ITEM TODAY IS ANOTHER
COMPREHENSIVE AMOUNT OF WORK THAT’S GONE INTO THIS. THE STRONG WORK FORCE PROGRAM.>>AS YOU KNOW, THE STATE REQUIRES THAT WE
PRESENT THIS PLAN BY THE END OF JANUARY. BUT WE HAVE UNTIL THE END OF JUNE, I BELIEVE,
TO MAKE MODIFICATIONS TO THE PLAN. THIS PLAN IS ALSO CONTINGENT UPON THE REGIONAL PLAN
THAT IS PUT TOGETHER BY THE CONSORTIUM FROM LOS ANGELES COUNTY AND ORANGE COUNTY. THE
DOCTOR HAS BEEN WORKING VERY CLOSELY WITH THE VICE PRESIDENT TO MAKE THIS A SUCCESS.
DR. SARAFIAN HAS BEEN AT THE DEAN’S LEVEL AND IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO ADD?>>I JUST WANT TO ALSO — I APPRECIATE VERY
MUCH ACTUALLY THE WORK THAT THE DOCTOR HAS DONE IN PUTTING THIS PRESENTATION TOGETHER.
AND WORKING WITH VARIOUS FACULTY AND DEANS IN PUTTING TOGETHER THE PLAN THAT YOU’RE GOING
TO HEAR ABOUT RIGHT NOW. BUT I ALSO WANT TO INDICATE THAT SOMEONE ELSE WHO WE RECENTLY
HIRED WAS A NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF ECONOMIC AND WORK FORCE DEVELOPMENT, WHO IS IN THE
AUDIENCE. AND SHE ALSO PARTICIPATED COMING IN A LITTLE BIT LATER IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF
THIS PLAN. AND WILL BE MUCH MORE ACTIVE IN THAT IN THE COMING YEARS.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. MEMBERS OF THE BOARD,
PRESIDENT AND DOCTOR, MY NAME IS THE DOCTOR. I AM THE DEAN OF BUSINESS ENGINEERING AND
TECHNOLOGY AND I’M VERY PLEASED TO HAVE BEEN INVITED TO PRESENT TO YOU THE STRONG WORK
FORCE PROGRAM, A LOCAL PLAN, ROUND TWO. THE PORTION THAT COVERS FISCAL YEAR 2017 AND 2018.
BEFORE WE DIVE INTO THAT PLAN, WHAT WE’D LIKE TO DO IS REVIEW WHERE WE’VE BEEN. WHICH IS
THE PASADENA COMMUNITY COLLEGE AREA DISTRICT LOAN SHARE INVESTMENT FOR 2016-2017. WHICH
I PRESENTED LAST YEAR AROUND THIS TIME. AN OVER YAO — AN OVERVIEW OF THE ROUND TWO REGIONAL
PROJECTS THAT DIRECTLY INVOLVE P.C.C. THE DOCTOR ALUREDED TO THAT IN HIS — ALLUDED
TO THAT IN HIS INTRODUCTION. THEN DIVE INTO THE OVERVIEW OF P.C.C.’S LOCAL STRONG WORK
FORCE PLAN FOR ROUND TWO, COVERING FISCAL YEAR 2017 AND 2018. AND THE CURRENT IMPLICATIONS
FOR THAT PLAN. YOU’LL FIND THE HISTORICAL BACKGROUND AND THE STATUTORY DETAILS OF THE
STRONG WORK FORCE INVESTMENT PROGRAM CONTAINED IN YOUR ACTION ITEM TEXT TONIGHT. SO I WON’T
GO INTO THOSE DETAILS TOO MUCH. BUT INSTEAD WOULD LIKE TO START WITH JUST A QUICK REVIEW
OF WHERE WE’VE BEEN. P.C.C.’S LOCAL SHARE LAST FISCAL YEAR FOR ROUND ONE WAS $1.44 MILLION.
AND WE MADE SOME SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENTS AS DIRECTED BY THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE AND THE
LAOCRC, THE REGIONAL CONSORTIUM, INTO PROGRAMS THAT SHOWED PROMISE FOR ENROLLMENT GROWTH.
AND SO THOSE PROGRAMS REALLY HIT ALL OF THE MAJOR SECTORS IN LOS ANGELES AND ORANGE COUNTY,
SPECIFICALLY LOS ANGELES COUNTY AND THE REGION THAT WE INHABIT AS PASADENA CITY COLLEGE.
SO AS YOU CAN SEE, ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY, WELDING, CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION, A SPECIALTY
NURSE TRAINING PROGRAM, E.M.T. CERTIFICATION SUCCESS BOOT CAMP, AND FURTHER ON DOWN THE
LINE WITH THE NEXT SLIDE, INCLUDING A GEOTECHNOLOGY PROGRAM ENHANCEMENT, A BIOTECH PROGRAM EXPANSION,
LITERALLY, AN EXPANSION INTO A SECOND CLASSROOM TO DOUBLE THE ENROLLMENT THAT WE’RE ABLE TO
AT LEAST — OPPORTUNITIES FOR ENROLLMENT THAT WE WERE ABLE TO OFFER STUDENTS. STACKING ENTREPRENEURSHIP
ACROSS THE C.T.E. CURRICULUM. AND A VARIETY OF ACROSS ALL WRAP-AROUND COLLEGE-WIDE SUPPORT
INITIATIVES. CURRENTLY PROPOSED TO AND VETTED BY THE C.E.O.’S IN THE REGION, WE HAVE A SET
OF ROUND TWO COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS THAT PASADENA CITY COLLEGE WILL BE DIRECTLY INVOLVED IN.
P.C.C. HAS SHOWN LEADERSHIP IN ONE IN PARTICULAR CALLED THE L.A. BIOSCIENCE COLLABORATIVE PROJECT.
COLLABORATIVE OF APPROXIMATELY EIGHT COMMUNITY COLLEGES IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA TO DEVELOP
BEST PRACTICES AND TO DISSEMINATE CURRICULUM. AND KNOWLEDGE IN THE BIOSCIENCE AND LIFE SCIENCES
AREA. ACROSS ALL REGIONAL CONSORTIUM ACTIVITIES, INCLUDE THE LOS ANGELES WORK FORCE EDUCATION
RESEARCH CENTER, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE CENTER FOR COMPETITIVE WORK FORCE, IN COLLABORATION
WITH THE LAEDC, THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION, A CAREER PATHWAY
SPECIALIST FOR EACH OF THE REGIONAL COLLEGES AND A PROPOSED INTERIM REPLACEMENT SPECIALIST
FOR EACH OF THE REGIONAL COLLEGES. CONTINUING ON WITH DIRECT P.C.C. PARTNERSHIPS, WE COVER
ALL OF THE MAJOR INDUSTRY SECTORS THAT HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AS GROWTH POTENTIALS FOR JOB
AND CAREER PATHWAYS. GLOBAL TRADE, ENGINEERING AND MANUFACTURING, A REGIONAL NET LAB HUB
FOR INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY. ENERGY CONSTRUCTION AND UTILITIES. AND C.T.E. READINESS AND NONCREDIT
BOOT CAMPS. CONTINUING THE SENTIMENT THAT WAS EXPRESSED IN THE LAST PRESENTATION, THE
OPPORTUNITY FOR LANCERS AT THE FOOL HILL CAMPUS TO MAKE THE TRANSITION FROM CAREER AND COLLEGE
PREPARATION TO FOR-CREDIT C.T.E. PROGRAMS. AND CREDENTIALS IN A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT
FIELDS. I’D NOW LIKE TO MOVE ON TO THE LOCAL INVESTMENT PLAN FOR THIS CURRENT FISCAL YEAR
THAT STARTS ROUND TWO BUT I’D LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT THE $1 MILLION ISN’T THE ENTIRE AMOUNT.
THIS IS ONLY 83% OF THE PROJECTED AMOUNT. OF LOCAL FUNDING THAT WE SHOULD RECEIVE FROM
THE CALIFORNIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE. I’D LIKE TO — FOR YOU TO REFER TO
THE FISCAL IMPLICATIONS ON THE CON — RATHER THE ACTION ITEM TEXT FOR FURTHER DETAILS ON
WHAT WILL CONSTITUTE THE LAST REMAINING 17% OF THAT ALLOCATION. BEGINNING THIS FISCAL
YEAR, THE FUNDING FORMULA HAS CHANGED. FROM A 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 FORMULA TO 1/3, 1/3, AND 2/6.
WITH THE FINAL IS THIRD BEING BROKEN OUT FROM PROJECTED JOB OPENINGS TO INCLUDE ANOTHER
FACTOR, SUCCESSFUL WORK FORCE OUTCOMES. SO THAT 17% IS STILL BEING CALCULATED BY THE
STATE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE AND THE E.D.D. IN SACRAMENTO. THOSE CONSTITUTE SUCCESSFUL WORK
FORCE OUTCOMES SUCH AS JOB PLACEMENT AND SUCCESSFUL RETENTION. WE ANTICIPATE THAT THIS FUNDING
NOTICE AT THIS PRESENT TIME WILL OCCUR AROUND MARCH, 2018, ALTHOUGH I’M HEARING MORE ABOUT
THE MAY REVISE AT THIS PRESENT TIME. SO WE’RE CROSSING OUR FINGERS FOR SOONER NEWS THAN
LATER. ON THE REMAINING 17% OF OUR ALLOCATION. THE FOLLOWING SLIDES WILL CONSTITUTE THE BULK
OF THE REMAINDER OF MY PRESENTATION. THEY CONSTITUTE THE RESULTS OF A COLLABORATIVE
PROCESS THAT INVOLVED A STEERING COMMITTEE HERE AT P.C.C. COMPRISED OF FACULTY, STAFF
AND MANAGEMENT. SOLICITATIONS WERE MADE THROUGH THE DEANS TO ALL FACULTY IN CAREER ED AREAS
TO PROPOSE PROJECTS THAT COULD BE FUNDED UNDER THE AUSPICES OF ROUND TWO. AND THOSE POINTED
TO SIGNIFICANT AREAS OF OPPORTUNITY IN ADVANCED MANUFACTURING, ADVANCED TRANSPORTATION AND
LOGISTICS, ENERGY EFFICIENCY, UTILITIES AND CONSTRUCTION, HEALTH SCIENCES, INFORMATION
AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES, ENTERTAINMENT, ECOMMERCE. BIOTECHNOLOGY AND LIFE SCIENCES.
AND AN INTERDISCIPLINARY AREA THAT WE’VE IDENTIFIED AS A COMBINATION OF BOTH ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY
AND NATURAL SCIENCES. A NEW PROGRAM IN INDUSTRIAL QUALITY CONTROL. YOU’LL SEE THAT WE HAVE A
COUPLE OF PROGRAMS THAT WE ARE CONTINUING FUNDING FOR. WE MADE THE DETERMINATION TO
CONTINUE FUNDING, FOR EXAMPLE, FOR CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION AND FOR WELDING. AS THOSE — A
NUMBER OF — LOOKS LIKE A NUMBER OF THOSE HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AS GROWTH POTENTIAL FOR
CONTINUED EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN THE REGION. BUT WE HAVE SOME NEW PROGRAMS. E.V.
AND HYBRID TECHNOLOGY, A C.N.A., L.V.N., R.N. PATHWAY. EXPANDING THE E.M.T. BOOT CAMP TO
INCLUDE A MORE COMPREHENSIVE FIRST RESPONDER ACADEMY. INVOLVING DIGITAL MEDIA, ENTERTAINMENT
AND ECOMMERCE, A LITTLE BIT MORE COMPREHENSIVELY. WITH A VIRTUAL REALITY LAB THAT WE ARE PROPOSING,
A USER EXPERIENCE CURRICULUM AND DIGITAL MEDIA. NEW PROGRAM IN BIO, A PROGRAM IN BIOMANUFACTURING
AND OF COURSE THE ALREADY MENTIONED INDUSTRIAL QUALITY CONTROL PROGRAM. THE CURRENT IMPLICATIONS
FOR STRONG WORK FORCE PROGRAM PLANNING ARE LISTED THERE IN THIS SECOND TO LAST SLIDE.
ASSESSING PROGRESS AND OUTCOMING OF THE INITIAL STRONG WORK FORCE INVESTMENT IS AN IMPORTANT
CONCEPT FOR US. IMPORTANT CONSTRUCT FOR US, I SHOULD SAY. THE DATA AND THE OUTCOMES ARE
STILL PENDING WITH RESPECT TO THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE AND THE LAUNCH BOARD DATABASE, WHICH
HAS BECOME SORT OF THE GOLD STANDARD, THE STANDARD DATABASE THAT ALL OF US ARE USING
THROUGHOUT THE STATE. BECAUSE THE INVESTMENTS IN ROUND ONE FOR THE MOST PART HAVE ONLY TAKEN
PLACE SINCE LAST FALL, THERE REALLY ARE NO USABLE DATA OR OUTCOMES THAT HAVE BEEN DELIVERED
TO US THROUGH THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE. SO WE’RE STILL — THAT’S STILL PENDING. LINKING
THE STRONG WORK FORCE PROGRAM TO THE ADULT EDUCATION BLOCK GRANT AND BRAIDING FUNDS FOR
LINKING NONCREDIT TRAINING TO CREDIT C.T.E. FOR CREDENTIALING AT A MULTITIERED APPROACH
TO DIFFERENT LEVELS OF EMPLOYMENT. LINKING GUIDED PATHWAYS TO STRONG WORK FORCE PROGRAM
SECTOR PATHWAYS. AND IN FACT LINKING GUIDED PATHWAYS TO VIRTUALLY EVERY DEGREE AND EVERY
CERTIFICATE HERE AT PASADENA CITY COLLEGE. ENHANCING C.T.E. ARTICULATION AND DUEL ENROLLMENT
OPPORTUNITIES. WE RECEIVED A QUESTION FROM THE — DUAL ENROLLMENT OPPORTUNITIES. WE RECEIVED
A QUESTION FROM THE BOARD A COWELL OF DAYS AGO AND HOPEFULLY WE ANSWERED THAT QUESTION
IN A COMPREHENSIVE MANNER. FINALLY, DEVELOPING WRAP-AROUND, COMPREHENSIVE WRAP-AROUND INITIATIVES
TO IMPROVE THE COMPLETION AND JOB PLACEMENT METRICS THAT ARE SO IMPORTANT TO THAT FINAL
17%. ONGOING FOR FUTURE FISCAL YEARS, THIS PROJECT. IT’S NOW TIME FOR ANY QUESTIONS AND
ANSWERS THAT I MAY BE ABLE TO PROVIDE OR OUR PANEL IS ABLE TO PROVIDE FOR YOU. THANK YOU
FOR YOUR ATTENTION.>>THANK YOU. VERY COMPREHENSIVE REPORT.>>THANKS. THIS IS A GOOD REPORT. I HAD SOME
ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS THAT WERE ANSWERED. THE LIST OF EMPLOYERS. WE’VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS
FOR A LITTLE OVER A YEAR NOW. AND SO I’M PLEASED TO SEE ALL THESE LINKAGES. I GUESS AT WHAT
POINT WILL THE BOARD ACTUALLY START SEEING WHERE SOME OF THE OUTCOMES ARE ? I KNOW YOU’VE
ALSO MENTIONED , TALK ABOUT LINKING WITH HIGH SCHOOL SO IT’S IMPORTANT THAT STUDENTS BEGIN
TO THINK ABOUT CAREER AND WORK FORCE AND WHERE THEIR OPPORTUNITIES ARE. NOT JUST AS THEY’RE
READY TO GRADUATE FROM COLLEGE, BUT COMING INTO COLLEGE AND EVEN EARLY ON IN HIGH SCHOOL.
I’M NOT HEARING WHERE WE’RE ACTUALLY MAKING THOSE LINKAGES EARLY ON. SO, FOR EXAMPLE,
IN AREA FIVE, MY HIGH SCHOOL’S ALREADY — MY HIGH SCHOOLS ALREADY HAVE INTERNSHIP DIRECTORS.
BUT I’M NOT SEEING HOW THAT LINKS BACK IN WITH P.C.C.>>SO ONE OF THE ADVANTAGES TO HAVING INTEREST
THIS IN PLACE FOR A YEAR WAS BEING ABLE TO LOOK BACK ON WHAT WERE THE STRONG SUITS OF
THE ROUND ONE INVESTMENTS AND WHAT WE COULD DO BETTER. AND ONE OF THE AREAS THAT THE REGIONAL
CONSORTIUM HAS IDENTIFIED AS AN AREA THAT COULD STAND SOME IMPROVEMENT IS OUTREACH TO
AREA HIGH SCHOOLS AND OUTREACH TO OTHER COMMUNITY EDUCATION AGENCIES. DOING A BETTER JOB OF
GENERATING CAREER PATHWAYS AND INTEREST IN INTERNSHIPS. SO THE REGIONAL CONSORTIUM HAS
APPROVED THROUGH THE APPROVAL OF THE C.E.O.’S I SHOULD SAY, THE REGIONAL CONSORTIUM RECOMMENDED
TO THE C.E.O.’S AND THE C.E.O.’S APPROVED A PROJECT THAT WOULD DELIVER TO ALL 19 COMMUNITY
COLLEGES IN THE AREA A JOBS AT INTERNSHIP PLACEMENT INDIVIDUAL. AND THEY WOULD BE PRIMARILY
RESPONSIBLE FOR THE KINDS OF INITIATIVES OR AT LEAST COORDINATING THE KINDS OF INITIATIVES
THAT YOU’VE VIED — DESCRIBED. ANOTHER AREA THAT WE’RE REVISITING WITH GREAT EARNEST IS
OUR CAREER AND COMPLETION CENTER. THE PROPOSED CAREER AND COMPLETION CENTER SHOULD RAISE
THE PROFILE OF CAREER ED HERE ON THIS CAMPUS. AND ONE OF THE PROPOSALS IS TO REALLY REDEFINE
WHAT SOME OF THE DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF OUR LOCAL JOB DEVELOPERS ARE GOING TO BE.
OUR LOCAL CAREER COUNSELORS ARE GOING TO BE. AND REALLY GET THEM OUT INTO THE COMMUNITY
AND MEET PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE. AND SO AS ROUND ONE REALLY GERMINATED, WE WERE ABLE
TO IDENTIFY GAPS IN THE SYSTEM THAT NEEDED TO BE ADDRESSED IN ROUNDS TWO AND THREE. SO
WE’RE HOPING THAT THOSE ACTUAL ACTION PLANS MATERIALIZE HERE VERY, VERY SHORTLY.>>IS IT UP TO THE REGIONS THEN TO CONNECT
THOSE — MAKE THOSE CONNECTIONS?>>NEW YORK THE FUNDING IS COMING — NO, THE
FUND SOMETHING COMING FROM THE REGION. IT’S GOING TO BE UP TO THE LOCAL COLLEGES TO REALLY
IMPLEMENT IT.>>SO WE SHOULD BE SEEING THOSE RELATIONSHIPS
BUILDING SOON.>>ABSOLUTELY.>>OK AND THEN JUST ONE OTHER QUESTION. I
WAS JUST UP IN SACRAMENTO EARLIER THIS WEEK AND A LOT OF EMPHASIS IN THE CHANCELLOR’S
OFFICE AT THE STATE LEVEL ON THE GUIDED PATHWAY. OBVIOUSLY THE CHANCELLOR’S BIG INITIATIVE.
WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE GUIDED PATHWAYS, A LOT OF THIS TALKS ABOUT THE INTERSECTIONALITY
OF ALL OF THESE CAREERS AND THESE CERTIFICATES. I’M DOING SOMETHING UNDER ROTARY, UNDER OWE
VISA — UNDER VOCATIONAL SERVICES. ONE OF THE COMMUNITY MEMBERS WHO VOLUNTEERED TO DO
CAREER TALKS FOR OUR HIGH SCHOOLS IS A MARRIAGE, FAMILY LAWYER AND A WEDDING PLANNER. SO IT
SEEMS KIND OF JUXTAPOSED BUT IT’S APPARENTLY THE SAME KIND OF RELATIONSHIP.>>THEY’RE JUST GENERATING THEIR OWN BUSINESS.
THAT’S ALL THAT’S GOING ON THERE.>>BUZZ IT — BUT IT DOES TALK ABOUT THE INTERSECTIONALITY
OF THESE REALLY KIND OF — WHICH SEEMS LIKE DIVERSE INTERESTS BUT KIND OF VARIANT. THAT
TO ME IS JUST A HUGE CHALLENGE ON THE BACKS OF THE FACULTY TO REALLY BUILD THOSE NODES
THAT KIND OF INTERSECT. SO HOW ARE YOU PLANNING ON GETTING — I MEAN, THAT’S JUST HUGE.>>THAT’S A VERY TIMELY QUESTION BECAUSE IT’S
THIS YEAR THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR, THE FEDERAL DEPARTMENT OF LABOR, IS REDEFINING
STANDARD OCCUPATION CLASSIFICATIONS. THE FIRST TIME IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS THAT THEY’RE DOING.
THAT SO NOW WE’RE FINALLY IDENTIFYING JOBS THAT DIDN’T EXIST FIVE YEARS AGO. MANY OF
THEM ARE THESE HYBRID KINDS OF JOBS. NO PUN INTENDED. BUT ONE STANDARD OCCUPATION CODE,
FOR EXAMPLES, WAS AUTOMOTIVE TECHNICIAN AND AUTOMOTIVE TECHNICIAN COVERED THE GAMUT OF
EVERYTHING THAT AN AUTOMATIC TECHNICIAN CAN DO, EITHER AT A DEALERSHIP OR AT A SMALL MAINTENANCE
BUSINESS. WELL, THE ANTICIPATION IS THAT ONET WILL VERY SOON LIST AUTOMOTIVE TECHNICIAN
AND RAINBOW THAT OUT INTO SUBGROUPS LIKE HYBRID TECHNICIAN, HYDROGEN TECHNICIAN. AND SO WE’LL
SEE SOME DIFFERENCES, I THINK, EMERGE HERE IN THE NEXT YEAR AS THE FEDERAL DEPARTMENT
OF LABOR REALLY DICTATES TO US WHERE WE SHOULD BE GOING WITH RESPECT TO SPECIFIC JOBS AND
OCCUPATIONS.>>THANK YOU.>>IF I COULD JUST ADD A LITTLE BIT TO THAT
TOO. ANOTHER ASPECT OF YOUR EARLIER QUESTION, ANOTHER INITIATIVE THAT HAS COME OUT FROM
THE STATE AND THAT P.C.C. IS PARTICIPATING IN IS BASICALLY WORK BASED LEARNING AND SO
THAT INITIATIVE WILL INTEGRATE CONSIDERABLY WITH STRONG WORK FORCE PROJECT THAT’S GOING
ON AND THE CAREER AND COMPLETION SENT THAT ARE WE’RE IN THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPING. AND
SO YOU WILL BE HEARING MORE IN THE FUTURE OF WHAT THAT WILL ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE. BUT
THAT WILL INVOLVE INTERNSHIPS, IT WILL INVOLVE JOB SHADOWING, IT WILL INVOLVE A WHOLE SEGMENT
OF VARIOUS THINGS THAT WE ALREADY DO BUT WE’RE NOT AS EFFECTIVE AS WE SHOULD BE IN GETTING
THE WORD OUT ABOUT THAT. AND WE NEED TO BASICALLY ORGANIZE IT A LITTLE BIT BETTER SO OUR STUDENTS
ARE AWARE OF IT AND THEN WE NEED TO IMPROVE OUR INTERACTION WITH OUR BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY
PARTNERS IN THE REGION SO THAT WE CAN EXPAND THOSE OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR STUDENTS AS WELL.>>JUST TO PIGGYBACK ON THAT RESPONSE, WE’RE
A MEMBER COLLEGE OF AN INITIATIVE THAT IS BEING SPONSORED BY THE FOUNDATION FOR CALIFORNIA
COMMUNITY COLLEGES. WHICH IS THE WORK-BASED LEARNING TOOL KIT INITIATIVE. SO WE DO NOT
WALK ALONE ON THIS. AND IN POINT OF FACT, AS WE GEAR UP OUR NEXT PERKINS FUNDING ROUND,
PERKINS, AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW, IS ALSO DEDICATED TO WORK-BASED LEARNING ACTIVITIES. SO WE’RE
TAKING IT SERIOUSLY, QUITE — ACROSS QUITE A NUMBER OF FINANCIAL STREAMS.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I URGE YOU AGAIN TO
REALLY BUILD THOSE RELATIONSHIPS THROUGHOUT OUR HIGH SCHOOLS. I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT THAT
WE REACH OUT EARLY SO THAT OUR STUDENTS CAN SEE THAT PATHWAY TO COLLEGES LIKE P.C.C.>>TO FURTHER ENERGIZE THIS, ONE LAST COMMENT,
WE DID IN THE LAST YEAR RETAIN THE SERVICES OF AN ASSISTANT DIRECTOR FOR HIGH SCHOOL PARTNERSHIPS
AND –>>EDUCATIONAL PARTNERSHIPS.>>THAT’S IT. I DON’T HAVE THE BUSINESS CARD
IN FRONT OF ME. A LOT OF INITIATIVE THARPS FORMALLY BALKANIZED AROUND THE CAMPUS HAVE
BEEN CONSOLIDATED UNDER THAT OFFICE. INCLUDING C.T.E. TRANSITIONINGS.>>THANK YOU.>>AND THANK YOU FOR THOSE QUESTIONS. ALSO
FOR THE WORK YOU’VE DONE ON THE WORK FORCE IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA.>>TWO QUESTIONS. HOPEFULLY QUICK. GOING BACKWARDS
TO SLIDE EIGHT, IN THE AREA OF CONSTRUCTION, I KNOW THAT WE HAVE THE CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION
PROGRAM. DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER ADDITIONAL PROGRAMS THAT — EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS THAT
WE’RE GOING TO BRING FORWARD IN THE AREA OF CONSTRUCTION?>>CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT.>>GREAT, OK. AND THEN BACKWARDS — BACK TO
THE SLIDE 10, WHERE YOU REFERENCED THE WRAP-AROUND INITIATIVES, CAN YOU DESCRIBE WHAT A WRAP-AROUND
INITIATIVE IS AND GIVE PERHAPS ONE EXAMPLE?>>ONE EXAMPLE WOULD BE A CAREER COUNSELOR
AND THAT CAREER COUNSELOR ISN’T NECESSARILY RELEGATED TO ONE SPECIFIC DISCIPLINE. SO THAT
CAREER COUNSELOR WOULD ACT AS AN AGENT FOR HELPING STUDENTS TO IDENTIFY APPROPRIATE PATHWAYS
ACROSS ALL OF THESE DISCIPLINES. AND POINT THEM IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION TO A JOB DEVELOPER,
GET THEM FOCUSED ON PREPARING THEIR RESUME. PREPARING THEIR SOFT SKILLS. IMBUE THEM WITH
SOME KNOWLEDGE WITH RESPECT TO HOW TO PREPARE FOR A JOB INTERVIEW. AND TO BE SUCCESSFUL
OVERALL. SO THAT WOULD BE A WRAP-AROUND. SO IT’S NOT SPECIFIC TO AN AREA OR A DISCIPLINE.
ANOTHER WRAP-AROUND WOULD BE THE W.B.L. OR WORK-BASED LEARNING STRATEGY THAT WE HAVE.
THAT REALLY SPANS THE GAMUT FROM JOB SHADOWING TO GUEST SPEAKERS TO SITE VISITS AT POTENTIAL
EMPLOYERS, TO INTERNSHIPS. SO GENERALLY SPEAKING AND ACROSS ALL INITIATIVE WOULD BE A WRAP-AROUND.>>THANK YOU.>>I’M VERY — OH, VERY QUICKLY. DO YOU OFF
HAND KNOW HOW MANY DIGITAL ANIMATION CLASSES WE HAVE AND ANY IDEA ABOUT EXPANDING THOSE
PROGRAMS? I SEE 3-D ANIMATION AND GAME DESIGN CURRICULUM.>>WE HAVE A NUMBER OF — YOU KNOW, I PROBABLY
WANT TO DIRECT THAT TO THE DEAN. THAT’S IN HIS AREA.>>YES, IF I COULD. WE HAVE A VERY DYNAMIC
DUO OF FACULTY WHO ARE MANAGING THAT AREA. THEY’RE VERY AWARE OF DEVELOPMENTS WITHIN
THE INDUSTRY AND THEY’RE ALSO LOOKING ALWAYS AT REFINING THE CURRICULUM TO ADDRESS NEEDS
AND TO FILL THOSE GAPS IN TERMS OF WORK FORCE PREPARATION. IN THAT DIGITAL MEDIA WORLD,
WHICH IS UNPREDICTABLE, WHICH DIRECTIONS IT’S GOING TO BE GOING OVER THE NEXT YEAR.>>DO YOU HAPPEN TO KNOW OFF HAND HOW MANY
COURSES ARE OFFERED IN DIGITAL?>>OFF THE TOP I DON’T. I CAN PROVIDE YOU
WITH THAT INFORMATION.>>OK, THANK YOU. THE RECOMMENDATION TONIGHT
IS THAT THE BOARD APPROVE THE DISTRICT’S LOCAL PLAN TO BE SUBMITTED TO THE CALIFORNIA COMMUNITY
COLLEGE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE FOR THE STRONG WORK FORCE PROGRAM.>>SO MOVED.>>SECONDED.>>MOTION AND SECOND. FURTHER DISCUSSION?
UNANIMOUS, VOTING IN THE POSITIVE. OK. ITEM NUMBER SIX. APPROVAL OF THE NONRESIDENT TUITION
FEE.>>EVERY YEAR AT IT ABOUT THIS TIME, WE ARE
REQUIRED BY EDUCATION CODE SECTION 76140 TO SUBMIT TO THE STATE BEFORE FEBRUARY 1 THE
TUITION THAT WE WILL BE CHARGING NONRESIDENT STUDENTS. THE SYSTEMS OFFICE GIVES US SOME
TEMPLATES ON HOW WE CAN COMPUTE THAT. ON TOP OF THAT WE ALSO ARE ALLOWED TO ADD A CAPITAL
OUTLAY FEE TO THAT TUITION FEE. THE ONLY STUDENTS THAT ARE EXEMPT OF THAT CAPITAL OUTLET FEE
WOULD BE AV-540 STUDENTS. AND I’M GOING TO ASK YOU TO ADD ANYTHING TO THAT. IS THERE
ANYTHING ELSE WE CAN TEED THAT?>>THERE’S SEVERAL DIFFERENT WAYS WE CAN COMPUTE
THE RATE THAT’S CHARGED. ONE RATE IS THE STATE CALCULATES TOTAL COSTS SYSTEM-WIDE. SO THAT’S
ALL 114 COMMUNITY COLLEGES WITHIN THE 72 DISTRICTS. AND THEY DETERMINE A PER UNIT FEE. AND THAT’S
WHAT A MAJORITY OF THE COLLEGE USE AND THAT’S WHAT WE’RE RECOMMENDING THAT WE USE AND THAT’S
WHAT WE’VE USED FOR THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS. ANOTHER METHOD THAT’S COMMON IS TO DO THE
SAME APPROACH BUT USE THE COST AT THE SPECIFIC COLLEGE OR DISTRICT AND MAKE THE CALCULATION
THERE. BUT STATE-WIDE MAKES MORE SENSE BECAUSE THERE’S LESS FLUCTUATION. SO OVERALL WE’RE
PROPOSING AND RECOMMENDING AN $18 INCREASE IN THE TOTAL FEE FROM $248 TO $266 AND THAT’S
THE NONRESIDENT TUITION AND THE CAPITAL OUTLAY FEE.>>WE’VE ALSO SURVEYED COLLEGES IN THE AREA
AND OF THE 25 COLLEGES AND DISTRICTS THAT RESPONDED, MOST ARE CHARGING ABOUT THE SAME
FEE. BUT OVERALL THE RANGE IS $235 TO $293. SO WE’RE RIGHT IN THE BARK. I CAN GIVE SPECIFIC
EXAMPLES. WE’RE SLIGHTLY LOWER THAN CITRUS AND SOME OF THE OTHER COLLEGES ARE ALL WITHIN
THE SAME RANGE. SO WE’RE NOT PRICING OURSELVES OUT OF THE MARKET. WE FEEL THAT WHAT’S BEING
RECOMMENDED IS A FAIR FEE.>>THANK YOU. IT’S RECOMMENDED THIS EVENING
THAT THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES APPROVE THE NONRESIDENT TUITION FEE, INCLUDING CAPITAL OUTLAY FEE
OF $266 PER SEMESTER UNIT FOR FISCAL YEAR 2017 AND 2018.>>A QUICK QUESTION. WHAT IS OUR CURRENT NUMBER
OF NONRESIDENT STUDENTS AND WHAT’S OUR TREND FOR THE PAST FIVE YEARS?>>I CAN HAVE STAFF WORK ON THAT AND PROVIDE
YOU WITH DATA DURING THE WEEK.>>THANK YOU.>>I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND, DID YOU ACTUALLY CALCULATE
THE FIGURE FOR P.C.C. AS OPPOSED TO THE STATE-WIDE AVERAGE?>>WE DID. IT WAS SLIGHTLY LOWER.>>BEING A STATE-WIDE AVERAGE, TAKING ALL
THE STUDENTS AND ALL THE COSTS FOR ALL THESE — WAIT A MINUTE. THIS IS A STATE-WIDE AVERAGE
FOR ALL STUDENTS OF ALL DIFFERENT TYPES AT ALL THE COLLEGES?>>CORRECT.>>THIS IS A REAL AVERAGE OF AN AVERAGE OF
AN AVERAGE KIND OF TYPE FIGURE. OK. THANK YOU.>>RIGHT.>>THE WISHES OF THE TRUSTEES THIS EVENING.>>I MOVE APPROVAL.>>WE HAVE A MOTION. A SECOND. FURTHER DISCUSSION?
PLEASE VOTE. THE ITEM IS PASSED UNANIMOUSLY. WITH THE STUDENT TRUSTEE VOTING IN THE POSITIVE.
ITEM NUMBER SEVEN TODAY IS THE NOMINATION FOR THE CALIFORNIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE TRUSTEES.
ZOP THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGES TO SUBMIT NAMES FOR PARTICIPATION ON THE BOARD.
SO ONLY ONE REPRESENTATIVE PER COLLEGE. BUT WE WILL SEE A SLATE OF OTHER COLLEGES AND
IF YOU KNOW TRUSTEES FROM OTHER COLLEGES THAT YOU WOULD RECOMMEND, YOU CAN CERTAINLY ENCOURAGE
THEM. WE WILL BE VOTING IN APRIL AT THE CONFERENCE IN OAKLAND. NO, VALENCIA. YEAH. WE’LL BE UP
IN BEAUTIFUL VALENCIA. [LAUGHTER] YES. SO ANYWAY. AND WE’LL ALSO BE VOTING FOR THE EXECUTIVE
BOARD OF THE TRUSTEES AT THAT TIME.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WE’LL MOVE ON TO ITEM
NUMBER EIGHT TODAY WHICH IS AUTHORIZE THE AWARD AND CONTRACT FOR THE ARMEN SARAFIAN
BUILDING.>>THIS IS A RECOMMENDATION TO MOVE FORWARD
WITH A CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT FIRM WHICH WILL MANAGE THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE U BUILDING
PROBABLY. WE DID AN R.F.Q. AND INTERVIEWED THREE FIRMS IN THE FIRM THAT WE WERE RECOMMENDING
IS D.P.R. THEY HAVE A LOT OF EXPERIENCE WITH SIMILAR TYPE BUILDINGS IN THE EDUCATIONAL
ENVIRONMENT.>>THANK YOU.>>I HAVE A QUESTION. SO, ARE WE STILL GOING
TO PROCEED WITH THIS WHILE WE’RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS CRISIS? AND WHAT DRAWBACKS WOULD THAT
BE FOR US FOR APPROVING THIS?>>THIS APPROVES TO US NEGOTIATE TERMS WITH
THE FIRM. IF IT TURNS OUT WHERE WE’RE NOT MOVING FORWARD WITH THE PROJECT , WE’LL STOP
BEFORE BRINGING — SIGNING THE ACTUAL CONTRACT.>>WHEN WOULD THESE SERVICES COMMENCE RELATIVE
TO THE ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN AND PLANNING PROCESS RELATIVE TO THE START OF CONSTRUCTION?>>WE WANTED TO HIRE A FIRM EARLY BECAUSE
PART OF THEIR RESPONSIBILITY WILL BE DOING COST ESTIMATION AND WORKING WITH A FIXED BUDGET
THAT’S VERY IMPORTANT. BECAUSE IF THE COST ESTIMATION DETERMINES THAT THE COST OF THE
BUILDING IS HIGH, THEN WE CAN DO SOME VALUE ENGINEERING TO LOWER THAT COST. SO PRIMARILY
EARLY ON THEY WOULD BE DOING COST ESTIMATION WORK. BUT LATER ON IN THE PROJECT THEY WOULD
DO MORE OF THE CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT.>>AND JUST TO FOLLOW UP, WHEN DO YOU SEE
THEM COMMENCING WITH THE COST ESTIMATION PART OF THE CONTRACT?>>PROBABLY IN JULY.>>IF IT IS THE PLEASURE OF THE BOARD, WE
CAN WITHDRAW THIS ITEM RIGHT NOW AND BRING IT BACK IN MARCH.>>SO MOVED.>>SECOND.>>JUST A QUESTION HERE. DO THE — WHAT EXPERIENCE
DO THEY HAVE AT P.C.C.?>>THEY HAVE NOT DONE WORK AT P.C.C.>>I GUESS BY CONSENSUS WE’LL HAVE — BRING
IT BACK?>>THERE WAS A MOTION. I THINK WE NEED THE
VOTE. YES, NO?>>OK, PLEASE VOTE.>>I WOULD LOVE TO VOTE. OH, SORRY. SORRY.>>THE MOTION WAS TO POSTPONE.>>YEAH, WE WANT TO POSTPONE.>>EVERYBODY IS POSITIVE, INCLUDING STUDENT
TRUSTEE. I KNEW ARMEN SARAFIAN. HE WAS A VERY GOOD FRIEND OF MINE. I THINK HE WOULD BE HAPPY
I’M HERE. [LAUGHTER] HE WAS WONDERFUL MAN. THEN HE WENT ON TO REALLY FOUND THE UNIVERSITY
OF LAVERGNE. HE BECAME PRESIDENT. HAD SOME INTERESTING AND HAPPY TIMES WITH HIM. WONDERFUL
MAN. NUMBER NINE IS THE AUTHORIZATION AND RESOLUTION OF THE U BUILDING PROJECT APPROVAL.>>THIS ITEM IS REQUIRED FOR THE ENVIRONMENTAL
IMPACT STUDY AND WHAT IT’S REQUESTING IS THAT, BECAUSE THE BUILDING IS NOT CHANGING IN SIZE,
WE’RE SEEKING A NOTICE OF EXEMPTION, WHICH WOULD SIGNIFICANTLY LIMIT THE TIME OF THE
STUDY. SO IT’S A NOTICE OF EXEMPTION REQUIRED BY SEEK WITH A. BASICALLY THE RESOLUTION STATING
THAT WE’RE NOT INTREESING THE LOAD ON THE CAMPUS, SO THERE WON’T BE INCREASED TRAFFIC
RESULT OF THE BUILDING. BECAUSE THE PROJECT IS ACTUALLY A REPLACEMENT PROJECT. AND THIS
ITEM IS ACTUALLY NEEDED FOR THE MARCH SUB MISSAL TO THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE OF THE PRELIMINARY
PLANS THAT G.K.K. DISCUSSED EARLIER THIS EVENING.>>MOVE APROVEBPROLVE.>>SECOND.>>WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND. FURTHER
DISCUSSION?>>TO WHOM EXACTLY ARE WE SUBMITTING IT FOR?
THEIR BLESSING FOR THE EXEMPTION AS OPPOSED TO A NEGATIVE DECLARATION OR MITIGATED?>>THE FIRM THAT WE HIRED, Q.K.K., THAT’S
THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STUDY FIRM. THEY’LL BE SENDING IT TO THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE.
WITH A PRELIMINARY PLAN.>>SO THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE IS IN POWER
TO MAKE THAT DETERMINATION.>>RIGHT. AND WE’RE THE LEAD AGENCY.>>OK. LET’S ALL VOTE. MOTION PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.
WITH THE STUDENT TRUSTEE IN THE AFFIRMATIVE. OK. NUMBER 10. ADOPT A RESOLUTION NUMBER 580.
LE.>>I THINK THIS IS A ROUTINE ITEM.>>THIS IS A ROUTINE ITEM THAT WE DO ON AN
ANNUAL BASIS. IT’S AUTHORIZING BORROWING FROM OUR DIFFERENT FUNDS. IT WE — IF WE DO MAKE
A BORROWING OF THE FUNDS, WE WOULD BRING IT TO THE BOARD FOR APPROVAL. WE DID THIS SAME
THING LAST YEAR AND THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS. AND WE HAVE NOT HAD TO DO THE BORROWING. WE
DON’T ANTICIPATE IT THIS YEAR. BUT THIS IS A STANDARD ITEM.>>ANY QUESTIONS? I’LL ENTERTAIN A MOTION.>>I’LL MOVE APPROVAL.>>WE HAVE A MOTION. A SECOND. PLEASE VOTE.
MOTION PASSES UNANIMOUSLY. WITH THE STUDENT TRUSTEE IN THE AFFIRMATIVE. ITEM NUMBER 11
IS AUTHORIZATION TO TRANSMIT SECOND QUARTERLY FINANCIAL STATUS.>>ROUTINE ITEM TO TRANSMIT QUARTERLY FINANCIAL
STATEMENT.>>THAT’S CORRECT. AND THE RESULTS WE’RE PROJECTING
ARE THE SAME AS THE BUDGET THAT WAS APPROVED IN SEPTEMBER. SO CURRENTLY WE’RE TRENDING
RIGHT IN LINE WITH THE BUDGET.>>THANK YOU. I’LL ENTERTAIN A MOTION.>>SO MOVED.>>SECOND.>>THE MOTION AND SECOND. ANY DISCUSSION?
PLEASE VOTE. UNANIMOUS VOTE. STUDENT TRUSTEE VOTING IN THE AFFIRMATIVE. OK. VERY GOOD.
NEXT WE MOVE TO INFORMATION ITEM. BOARD OF TRUSTEES COMMITTEES AND REPRESENTATIVES. ANY
QUESTIONS? MR. MARTIN.>>THANK YOU. WELL, I WAS A LITTLE SHOCKED
AND DISAPPOINTED WHEN THIS FIRST CAME OUT THAT I WAS NO LONGER SLATED TO BE ON THE BUDGET
AND ON A COMMITTEE. TO BE HONEST, I’VE BEEN ON THE BUDGET AND AUDIT COMMITTEE FOR 38 YEARS.
IT’S WHAT I DO FOR MY DAY JOB. I WORK ALL WEEK ON BUDGETS AND UNFORTUNATELY AUDITS.
MANY OF THOSE AUDITS ARE THE EXACT SAME KIND OF AUDITS THAT WE GET AUDITED AND FOLS THE
SAME PROCESS. — FOLS THE SAME PROCESS. I FEEL — FOLLOWS THE SAME PROSEFMENTS I FEEL
LIKE IT’S ONE — PROSEFMENTS I FEEL LIKE IT’S ONE — PROCESS. I FEEL LIKE IT’S ONE AREA
WHERE I CAN CONTRIBUTE. MY DAY JOB EXPERIENCES TO THE COLLEGE AND FOR THE DISTRICT. I THINK
IT’S UNFORTUNATE THAT WE MIGHT LOSE SOME INSTITUTIONAL HISTORY ON THE BUDGET AND YOU HAD ITS COMMITTEE.
WE’VE SEEN THAT HAS BEEN IMPORTANT AS WE SELECTED DIFFERENT AUDITORS. I HAVE QUITE A FEW — I
THINK IN THE LAST YEAR, I KNOW THE CURRENT BUDGET AND AUDIT COMMITTEE STARTED OFF WITH
A ROUGH START WITH SOME VERY, VERY LONG MEETINGS. BUT I THINK WE MANAGED TO WORK TOGETHER TO
GET WHAT I WOULD CALL THE GOLDILOCKS OF REPORTS AND THE STRUCTURES THAT WE FELT WERE APPROPRIATE
FOR THE BOARD TO GET. AND TOWARDS THE END THOSE MEETINGS WERE OBVIOUSLY BACK DOWN TO
A MORE REASONABLE TIME. IN THE LAST 36 YEARS, BEFORE THOSE TWO YEARS, WE DIDN’T HAVE THOSE
LONG MEETINGS. SO I’D LIKE TO THINK THAT I WASN’T NECESSARILY THE CONTRIBUTING FACTOR
TO THOSE. BUT I THINK IN THE END IT TURNED OUT THEY WERE HEALTHY. THERE’S BEEN SEVERAL
ITEMS CENTERED IN THE BUDGET AND YOU HAD ITS COMMITTEE THAT HAVE BEEN VERY NEAR — AUDIT
COMMITTEE THAT HAVE BEEN VERY NEAR AND DEAR TO ME BECAUSE I THINK THEY’V E BEEN IMPORTANT
TO THE DISTRICT. ONE IS TO BETTER ALIGN OUR LONG-TERM LIABILITIES TO SUPPORT OR LONG-TERM
LIABILITIES FOR OR POSTRETIREMENT BENEFITS WITH MORE LONG TERMENT INVESTMENTS. IT’S SOMETHING
I’VE BEEN CHAMPIONING AT THE BUDGET AND YOU HAD ITS COMMITTEE AND ON THE BOARD FOR ABOUT
2 1/2 YEARS. AND OBVIOUSLY WAS DISAPPOINTED TO FIND OUT THAT INTERVIEWS WERE GOING ON
AND AFTER KIND OF BEING THE PUSHER, THE SHAKER AND THE PATIENT ONE, I WASN’T EVEN KIND OF
INVITED TO ATTEND THOSE INTERVIEWS. AND NOT THAT I DON’T HAVE CONFIDENCE IN MY FELLOW
TRUSTEES. BUT I’VE ACTUALLY WRITTEN INVESTMENT POLICIES IVERBINGS BEEN AN ASSET MANAGER.
THIS IS SOMETHING I’VE DONE FOR A DAY JOB FOR OTHER ORGANIZATIONS. SO I THINK IT’S SOME
AREA WHERE, AGAIN, I FEEL LIKE I HAVE SOMETHING I COULD BRING TO THE BOARD THAT WOULD HELP.
IT WOULD BE KIND OF LIKE HAVING AN I.T. COMMITTEE AND YOU’RE NOTEN TO IT. WOULD BE –>>THAT CERTAINLY HAS HAPPENED. [LAUGHTER]>>THE OTHER POINT I WANTED TO MAKE IS DESPITE
THE FACT THAT I’VE BEEN ON IT FOR A LONG VERY — FOR A VERY LONG TIME, I’VE TRIED TO BE
RELATIVELY INNOVATIVE. BESIDES THE POSTRETIREMENT BENEFITS. I THINK I UNDERSTAND GOOD GOVERNANCE.
I THINK I WAS THE ONE THAT ALWAYS REQUIRE WE HAVE AN EXECUTIVE SESSION WITHOUT MANAGEMENT
PRESENT. AS A PART OF GOOD GOVERNANCE. AND THIS HAS BEEN VERY, VERY, VERY RARE, BUT WHENEVER
— YOU KNOW, THE BUDGET AND YOU HAD ITS COMMITTEE ISN’T EXACTLY HOUSE WAMSE COMMITTEE. THERE’S
NOT — HOUSE WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE. IT’S NOT LIKE WE’RE GETTING OUR PROJECTS IN AND
NOT ANYBODY ELSE. WE’RE THERE JUST GOING INTO A LOT MORE NUMBERS SO THAT THE BOARD AS A
WHOLE DOESN’T HAVE TO DO IT. BUT ON THE RARE OCCASION WHERE SOMETHING LIKE THAT HAS SLIGHTLY
BRISKED THE COMMITTEE, I’VE BEEN ONE OF THE FIRST ONES TO SAY, THAT’S A DISCUSSION FOR
THE ENTIRE BOARD. WE’RE NOT HERE TO GIVE YOU GUIDANCE ON THOSE TYPES OF THINGS I’VE SAID
TO THE ADMINISTRATION, NOT NECESSARILY THIS ADMINISTRATION. BEEN VERY CAREFUL TO MAKE
SURE THAT THE COMMITTEE ISN’T GOING INTO THAT KIND OF THING OR GETTING ANY SPECIAL PRIVILEGES
AND REALIZES THE IMPORTANCE THAT WE ARE THERE TO REPRESENT ALL SEVEN MEMBERS. AND THAT’S
BEEN A PHILOSOPHY OF MINE THAT I THINK I’VE CHAMPIONED FOR MANY, MANY YEARS. I WISH I
COULD COME, EVEN IF I’M NOT ON THE COMMITTEE, I WISH I COULD ATTEND ALL THESE COMMITTEES.
UNFORTUNATELY I STILL DO HAVE OTHER COMMITMENTS TO OTHER ORGANIZATIONS. MOST OF THEM DOING
THEIR BUDGETS AND YOU HAD ITSES — AUDITS. SO WHERE MY TIME IS, I DON’T KNOW THAT I COULD
JUST, IF I WERE NOT ON THE COMMITTEE HAVE THE TIME TO ATTEND JUST FOR THE BENEFIT OF
ATTENDING. THOUGHIFY DID, I CERTAINLY WISH I WOULD. SO, I’M KIND OF ASKING THE BOARD
TO RECONSIDER AND , AND AGAIN, NOT FOR MY OWN PERSONAL BENEFIT, BUT I HONESTLY BELIEVE
FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE DISTRICT, THE COLLEGE. THAT IF SOMEONE HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE
IN THIS CAPACITY, BECAUSE THEY HAVE SOME EXPERIENCES, I THINK WE’RE GOING TO BE — ALL THOSE COMMUNITY
COLLEGE CONFERENCES I GO, TO I’M ALWAYS ON THE BUDGET AND YOU HAD ITS COMMITTEE SESSIONS.
THERE’S — AND AUDIT COMMITTEE SESSIONS. THERE’S JUST A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF HISTORY THAT’S
GONE BACK THROUGH YEARS AND YEARS THAT I THINK WE WILL BE MISSING AND I WOULD APPRECIATE
THAT OPPORTUNITY TO KEEP SERVING IN THAT AREA.>>THANK YOU. WHEN CONTROVERSIES OR SOMEBODY
DOESN’T LIKE THE WAY THE COMMITTEE IS, WHAT WE DO IS WE ASK FOR NOMINATIONS AND THEN WE
TAKE A VOTE IN THE THREE HIGHEST VOTE GETTERS WILL BE ON THAT COMMITTEE.>>I WOULD LIKE TO JUST REINFORCE THE COMMENTS
THAT TRUSTEE MARTIN HAS MADE. HAVING SAT ON THAT COMMITTEE, I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW INVALUABLE
HE IS WITH HIS FINANCIAL KNOWLEDGE AND HIS INSTITUTIONAL MEMORY. AND I WOULD — I’M SHOOTING
FROM THE HIP HERE, BUT I WOULD VOLUNTEER TO REMOVE MYSELF FROM THAT COMMITTEE BECAUSE
I THINK IT’S TREMENDOUSLY IMPORTANT THAT HE STAY ON IT.>>IF YOU’RE WILLING TO DO, THAT ARE YOU FINE
WITH THAT? OR I CAN GO FOR A VOTE.>>JIM HAS BEEN INCREDIBLE. I HONESTLY FEEL
LIKE HE’S JUST A TREMENDOUS MEMBER. AND I WOULD REALLY WANT JIM ON THE COMMITTEE.>>THAT’S VERY KIND OF YOU. I REALLY TRULY
BELIEVE THAT YOUR PARTICIPATION ON THAT COMMITTEE IS TREMENDOUSLY VALUABLE. AND MORE SO THAN
MY OWN. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT.>>LET ME PUT MY TWO CENTS IN. I AGREE 100%
WITH JOHN MARTIN. I THINK JOHN MARTIN IS DEFINITELY VERY GOOD AT WHAT HE DOES. I WOULD ALSO SAY
THAT JIM IS VERY GOOD AT WHAT HE DOES. NEEDLESS TO SAY, SAVAGE IS VERY GOOD AT WHAT HE DOES.
UNFORTUNATELY THIS GROUP OF REALLY, REALLY SMART, PROFESSIONAL MEN ON ONE COMMITTEE HAS
BEEN SOMEWHAT PROBLEMATIC FOR STAFF AND THE PRESIDENT. SO DURING OUR RETEAT — RETREAT
WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE BEST, AND AMONG OUR BOARD MEMBERS, QUITE A FEW OF US THOUGHT IT
WOULD BE BEST TO PERSUADE ONE OF THEM TO MOVE AND PUT SOMEONE LIKE ME OR — I WAS THE ONLY
ONE THAT REALLY SAID I WOULD TAKE IT BECAUSE — FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE COLLEGE. AND
FOR THE BETTERMENT OF STAFF AND ALL THAT. AND THAT IS THE REAL THING. ALL THREE OF THEM
ARE GREAT. NO ONE CAN QUESTION THAT. AND THAT’S THE WHY WE’RE HERE. I APPLAUD YOU, JIM. YOU’RE
A GOOD MAN.>>, SO WE CAN DO — WHAT WE USUALLY DO, WHOEVER
GETS THE THREE HIGHEST IS PART OF THE COMMITTEE.>>ALTHOUGH I THINK WE HAVE ACTUALLY A SUGGESTED
EXRO COMPRISE. SO WE COULD — IF, JIM, YOU’RE AGREE TO BE THAT. WE COULD VOTE ON YOUR SUGGESTED
COMPROMISE.>>I AGREE.>>SO MOVED.>>I THINK IT’S A SOLUTION.>>LET’S HAVE A MOTION. THE COMMITTEE WILL
BE — DR. SAVAGE WILL BE THE CHAIR. MS. BROWN AND MR. MARTIN. WOULD YOU MAKE THE MOTION?>>SO MOVED.>>SECOND.>>WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND. PLEASE VOTE.
UNANIMOUS EXCEPT FOR — GH YOU DON’T WANT –>>NO. [LAUGHTER] I DON’T WANT — I THINK
JIM OUGHT TO BE ON THAT COMMITTEE.>>OK.>>WHO DO YOU WANT REMOVED?>>I THINK THE COMMITTEE — HONESTLY. WE HAD
A ROUGH START. THE MEETINGS WENT LONG. THEY WERE TOO DETAILED. I THINK WE WORKED THROUGH
IT. I THINK WE GOT A GOLDILOCKS ANSWER. I THINK YOU GOT MORE FINANCIAL PRODUCE HE IS
THAN WE’VE EVER HAD IN — PROWESS THAN WE’VE EVER HAD IN THIS DISTRICT THERE DOING AN EXCEPTIONAL
JOB. WHY ERNESTO UP?>>THANK YOU. WE DO HAVE A COMMITTEE OF MR.
BROWN, MR. SASK AND MR. MARTIN. THANK YOU. THE NEXT ITEM ON THE AGENDA WAS — IS SUPERINTENDENT
REPORT.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THIS IS OUR FIRST
MEETING OF 2018. I WANT TO WISH EVERYBODY PRESENT, THE BOARD, MEMBERS OF THE AUDIENCE,
AND STAFF A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR. I WANT TO START THIS REPORT BY SHARING A PIECE OF INFORMATION
THAT WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO SHARE FOR THE PAST EIGHT YEARS. I WAS JUST INFORMED ABOUT
25 MINUTES AGO THAT OUR WOMEN’S BASKETBALL TEAM HAS DEFEATED MOUNT SACK BY 37 POINTS.
[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] 37 POINTS. FIRST WIN AGAINST THEM IN EIGHT YEARS. I THOUGHT I NEEDED
TO START MY REPORT WITH THIS.>>DID YOU HAVE ANY –>>NO, NO.>>DID YOU HAVE ANY SIDE BETS WITH DR. SKROGINS?>>I DID NOT WANT TO BET KNOWING THE TRACK
RECORD. WINTER TERM IS NOW NEARLY HALFWAY COMPLETE. OUR CAMPUS COMMUNITY HAS TRULY RESPONDED
POSITIVELY TO THE INCLUSION OF WINTER CLASSES ON OUR SCHEDULE. AND WE ARE PLEASED TO SEE
SO MANY STUDENTS CHOOSING TO ADVANCE THEIR EDUCATION DURING THIS SHORTENED TERM. WE HAVE
ENROLLED APPROXIMATELY 600 MORE STUDENTS THIS WINTER THAN LAST WINTER AND ENROLLMENTS ARE
UP MORE THAN 1,100. WE ARE CURRENTLY RAMPING UP OUR EFFORTS TO CONTINUE OUR TREND IN STRONG
ENROLLMENT THROUGH OUR SPRING TERM AND LOOK FORWARD TO SHARING MORE SOON. ALONG THESE
LINES, ON SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10, WE WILL HOST THE NEXT INSTALLMENT OF OUR ANNUAL CASH FOR
COLLEGE EVENT. A DAY-LONG SERIES OF PRESENTATIONS AND WORKSHOPS DESIGNED TO HELP FUTURE STUDENTS
LEARN EVERY AVENUE OF FINANCIAL AID AVAILABLE TO THEM. ALSO FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW,
WE WILL HAVE OUR INSTANT REGISTRATION TEAM ON HAND TO ASSIST THE NEWCOMERS WITH THE APPLICATION
AND ENROLLMENT PROCESSES. THE — THE DAY’S AN EXCELLENT WAY TO GET REGISTERED FOR CLASSES
IN ONE EASY PLACE AND WE HOPE PEOPLE ACROSS OUR COMMUNITY WILL TAKE PART. I ALSO WANT

WHAT HAVE YOU, I ATTENDED THE REKINDLING OF PEACE CEREMONY THAT WAS CONDUCTED ON JANUARY
6 OVER AT THE CITY HALL. THE KEY NOTE SPEAKER WAS ACTUALLY CONGRESSWOMAN JUDY CHU. SHE HAD
A GREAT MESSAGE. I GUESS SHE WENT DOWN TO BIRMINGHAM AND RELIVED ALL OF WHAT — OR ATTEMPTED
TO RELIVE WHAT HE WENT THROUGH. IT WAS A GREAT MOVING SPEECH THAT SHE GAVE. THEN ALSO ON
JANUARY 15, I ATTENDED THE REGULAR CELEBRATION THEY HAD OVER AT MCKINLEY SCHOOL. VERY GOOD
TURNOUT. BASICALLY THAT’S WHAT I DID. I ALSO DID TAKE TIME TO ATTEND A COUPLE OF THOSE
— COMMUNITY FORUMS. BECAUSE I WAS KIND OF INTERESTED IN SEEING HOW MANY PEOPLE DID TURN
OUT. SO I COULD KNOW FOR SURE WHEN TO REPORT THEM. AND A GREAT PRESENTATION BY CYNTHIA
OLIVO IN NORTHWEST PASADENA WHICH WAS VERY IMPRESSIVE. I WAS HAPPY TO SEE THAT WE HAVE
NOT FORGOTTEN NORTHWEST PASADENA STUDENTS. AND OUR GOAL TO REALLY CHANGE THE WAY THE
NORTHWEST NOT ONLY IS VIEWED BUT WHAT WE CAN OFFER TO THE OPPORTUNITIES. I THINK THE WORD
IS GETTING OWL. SO THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU.>>WE’RE PAYING THE PRICE FOR ONLY HAVING
ONE MEETING IN JANUARY. SO I’LL TRY TO BE BRIEF. [LAUGHTER] I THINK WE LAST MET DECEMBER
13 AND A LOT HAS ACTUALLY HAPPENED SINCE THEN. INCLUDING DEVASTATING FIRES FOLLOWED BY MUDSLIDES
CAUSED BY THE ENSUING RAIN. I BRING UP THIS BECAUSE I WAS LISTENING TO K.P. — KPCC THIS
MORNING AND THEY HAD A REPORT ABOUT HOW OUR FELLOW COMMUNITY COLLEGE, SANTA BARBARA CITY
COLLEGE, WAS EXTREMELY WELL PREPARED FOR BOTH EMERGENCIES AND HAD AN EFFECTIVE EMERGENCY
PLAN IN PLACE AND ENACTED IT AND THEIR CAMPUS WAS SAFE. AND THEN IN THE ENSUING MUDSLIDES
THEY SERVED AS A HAVEN FOR THOSE IN THE COMMUNITY THAT WERE LEFT HOMELESS. THAT’S THE END OF
MY REPORT.>>THANK YOU.>>SO JUST TO DISAGREE WITH THE TRUSTEE SLIGHTLY.
I WANTED TO CONGRATULATE PRESIDENT FELLOW FOR MOVING ALONG VERY BRISKLY WITH FALL AGENDA.>>IT WASN’T HIS FULT FAULT.>>I WANTED TO SAY THAT I ATTENDED THE STATE
OF THE CITY ADDRESS BY OUR MAYOR. VERY INTERESTING IN TERMS OF OUR FISCAL STATE IN THE CITY AND
THE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE COLLEGE AND PUSD. ALSO I’VE BEEN WORKING HARD ON THE FOUNDATION
CAMPAIGN, ON PART OF THE LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE THERE. WE MET WITH THE TOURNAMENT OF ROSES
C.E.O. ABOUT A PROPOSAL TO THEIR BOARD TO HELP US OUT WITH THE FOOTBALL FIELD. SO HOPEFULLY
THAT WILL BE IN THE WORKS. AND OTHER THAN THAT, THAT SHOULD CONCLUDE MY REPORT. THANK
YOU.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. MR. MARTIN.>>NO REPORT, THANK YOU.>>GREAT. I’LL GET TO USE JOHN’S TIME.>>THAT’S RIGHT.>>AS YOU KNOW, WE’RE DOING THE LEGISLATIVE
CONFERENCE SO THAT WILL BE COMING UP SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. AND THERE WILL BE TWO WORKSHOPS.
ONE IS GOING TO BE ACTUALLY FACILITATED BY FORMER CHANCELLOR BRYCE HARRIS AND IT WILL
BE ON C.E.O. TRUSTEE RELATIONSHIPS. SO I WILL BE ONE OF THE MEMBERS ON THAT PANEL. THE SECOND
WORKSHOP I’M GOING TO BE DOING IS WITH THE R.P. GROUP AND IT’S ON DATA DESEGREGATION
AND URGING THE C.C.C.’S TO ADOPT THAT, ESPECIALLY WHERE WE HAVE LARGE NUMBERS OF DEMOGRAPHICS,
WITH WE I HAVE HAD A NUMBER OF TALKS WITH UC AND CAL STATE. THEIR CHANCELLORS ARE VOLUNTARILY
BEGINNING THE DATED DESEGREGATION. I WILL BE SHARING THAT INFORMATION. TI HOPE YOU HAVE
A CHANCE TO ATTEND. I ALSO WITH DR. BELL ATTENDED ALL THREE FORMS IN THAT COMMUNITY AND OUR
CONSULTANT DID A GREAT JOB AND ONE OF THE COMMENTS SHE MADE WAS THAT THE INFORMATION
SHE GOT WAS VERY DIFFERENT. SHE COULD SEE CERTAINLY THERE WAS A DIFFERENCE IN ALL OF
THE THREE COMMUNITIES. ROSEMEAD BEING DIFFERENT FROM NORTH WEST PASADENA. IT IS HER BINDER
OF HOW DIVERSE OUR — A REMINDER OF HOW DIVERSE OUR COMMUNITIES ARE. I WAS UP AT THE STATE
FOR THE INPI MEETING. THERE IS A LOT OF EMPHASIS FROM THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE ON THE GUIDED
PATHWAYS. ALL THE EFFORTS ARE GOING TO BE DIRECTED TO THE SUCCESS OF THE GUIDED PATHWAYS
AND I SIT ON THE P3, WHICH IS THE POLICY SUBCOMMITTEE. THE OFFICE DECIDED THAT LOCAL POLICIES WILL
BE DEVELOPED AT THE COLLEGE LEVEL EXCEPT FOR THOSE OF THE HIGHER STATE LEVELS MOVING US
TOWARD A GUIDED PATHWAYS AND THAT WILL BE DEVELOPED AT THE P3 LEVEL. THE VICE CHANCELLOR
WILL BE TAKING OVER THAT.. THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF REORGANIZATION IN THE CHANCELLOR’S
OFFICE THAT WE WILL SEE A LOT OF DIFFERENCES. BY’S CHANCELLOR SKINNER WHO HAD BEEN THERE
FOR A LONG TIME HAD MOVED TO THE PRESIDENT OF SIERRA COLLEGE. WE SEE A LOT OF MOVEMENT
IN THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE AND WE WILL SEE A LOT OF CHANGES IN THE UPCOMING YEAR.>>THANK YOU. I HAVE A FEW ANNOUNCEMENTS.
I WILL MISS DR. [INDISCERNIBLE] AND I ENJOYED BEING WITH HIM WHEN I CAME ON CAMPUS. SOME
OF YOU MAY HAVE SEEN ON FACEBOOK, I WAS EXCITED TO SEE RYAN LEW, WHO IS AT HARVARD — YALE.
HE WAS AT THE CHRISTMAS PARTY FOR THE FOUNDATION. I GOT A NOTE, HE HAS BEEN WRITING ME. I’M
EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE I HAVE ACCEPTED A POSITION TO WORK WITH THE BIDEN FOUNDATION. THIS IS
G REAT BECAUSE IT WILL BE ABLE TO ADVOCATE FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGE WHILE FINISHING MY LAST
SEMESTER AT YALE. THIS IS PART OF MY MASTER PLAN TO ONE DAY GET ONE-ON-ONE ICE CREAM WITH
JOE BIDEN. IT IS INTERESTING. HE IS A FORMER TRUSTEE — HE IS HER MENTOR. IT WAS A NICE
PICTURE OF BOTH OF THEM. THE LAST THING I WANTED TO TALK ABOUT IS I AM GOING TO ASK
THAT WE HAVE SOME KIND OF SMALL RETREAT. I HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH MR. BRYCE HARRIS,
AND I BELIEVE TOMORROW, I SHOULD RECEIVE HIS SUMMARY OF THE RETREAT. HE HAS MADE A NUMBER
OF RECOMMENDATIONS. HE IS VERY STRONG, AND I THINK IT IS SOMETHING WE HAVE TO TALK ABOUT
BEFORE WE HAVE A NEW PRESIDENT COMING TO PCC. I WILL BE CALLING A MEETING SO WE CAN DISCUSS
HIS NOTE AND SOME OF HIS RECOMMENDATIONS, AND WHAT HE HAS TO SAY. OK. FUTURE PROPOSED
FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT — BOARD MEETINGS. EXCUSE ME. ONE OF THE THINGS
I WOULD LIKE TO DO TO HELP MR. HILSMAN WHO IS –>>A LONG PLANNED TRIP.>>I WISH I COULD GO WITH HIM. THE MARCH 7
BOARD DATE CONFLICTS AND HE HAS ASKED IF WE COULD MOVE THE DAY TO THE 21ST.>>I DO NOT WANT TO INCONVENIENCE THE BOARD
