CALL TO ORDER: Jay Wiestling, Mathematics Department Chair, called the meeting to
order at 2:02pm PM in room E-1.

APPROVAL OF MINUTES: August 17
th
minutes on the 1
st
page under Department Chair Report #1,
should be Dean’s address not President’s. It was M/S (M. Clark/T.
Johnston) to approve the minutes as corrected.

REPORTS:

Sabbatical Project Report Shannon Lienhart reported:
1. Students have been using the 7
th
instead of the 8
th
edition
of the calculus book, asking what the differences are in
the homework problems. Shannon created a set of
problems with the answers so that students could use
whichever book they chose for resources but have one set
of problems to work on.
2. Shannon is willing to make them available to anyone who
would like them and then individual instructors can
modify them as then need. It is posted on her blackboard
site if you want to look at them.
3. Fari suggested that if Shannon was okay with it, they
could be put on the Math Tutorial website so all faculty
had access (it can only be accessed from the Palomar
campus) and Shannon said this was fine.

Summer Bridge Cindy Anfinson reported:
1. 74.36% of the students passed. They were also given 8
1/2 hours of reading instruction which made a big
improvement in their reading levels. Martha also worked
with ESL Summer Bridge and 13 of 17 students passed.
12 of those 13 increased their ESL placement.

Math Center Cindy Anfinson reported:
1. The Math Center made the newspaper with a quote from
Jay Wiestling in it.

Website Cindy Anfinson reported:
1. Myedu.com, a website that lists grade distribution, gives
GPA, histogram for all classes, has comments about
instructors – looks to have been operating for about a year
now. It is nationwide.

Obs. from SLO Assessments Jay Wiestling reported:
1. Cindy T suggested input for the SLO before we give them
out.
2. Wendy was not here to report.
3. Greg already made a presentation previously.
4. Mona Ellis will send out an email.
5. David gave problems at the final and 16 of 17 students
were able to answer.

Copier Jay Wiestling reported:
1. Copier should be here on the Monday following this
meeting.
2. District signed an exclusive agreement with Konica so we
could not go with the former company we had used.
3. It will be a scanner and fax machine as well as a
copier/printer. When the printer at Mona and Kelli’s desk
dies, it will not be replaced. This copier will be
networked for all.
4. There will be the same but smaller sized copier in the
Math Center and it will be networked as well.
5. Each person will have their own code/account for the
copiers.

Assessment Coordinator Position Jay Wiestling reported:
1. Diane McAllister is retiring and he feels it is important
that we have a Math faculty member on the committee for
input.
2. Fari nominated Mathews as a committee member and he
accepted. Jay will notify the committee chairperson.

Workshop Jay Wiestling reported:
1. Next month there will be a workshop on Concepts of
Numbers (Wendy and Anne have been working with this
in their classes this semester as a pilot). It is a new way
of teaching arithmetic/algebra. It will be 2-5pm on Friday
October 19, 2012. Consider it mandatory. It can be used
for PD, code is 112.
2. Karen and Cindy A spoke about substituting in
Wendy/Anne class and the success the students seemed to
be having so far.
3. STEM grant is paying for this training and tutors will be
trained as well.

Substitutes Jay Wiestling reported:
1. There will be no substitutes for 50 minute or less classes.
The District spent $300000.00 on substitutes last year and
the cost has to be brought down.

Learning Outcomes Jay Wiestling reported:
1. His previous statement about only putting the Learning
Outcome on your syllabus for SLO’s being assessed was
wrong. It must be on for all of them every semester. He
suggested cutting and pasting from the website.
2. Shannon suggested that you add, that accreditation
mandates this be included but that it is not the only
standard that students will be held too, that they will be
expected to learn more than just what is said in the
Learning Outcome.

Cheating Jay Wiestling reported:
1. A recommendation that you put consequences on your
syllabus for students caught cheating.
2. You need to fill out an incident report with Sherri Titus
for each student you catch cheating so that there is a
record.
3. Jay also recommended that you put in your syllabus that
students must keep all their graded paperwork for the
semester if they want to dispute a grade.
4. Mark Walker stated that he gives his students two weeks
to dispute a grade not entered properly with verification.

Adjunct Evaluations Jay Wiestling reported:
1. He would be asking some faculty members to help out
with evaluations.
2. There is a revised form with the first 2 pages having little
change. On the 3rd page the question regarding the
syllabus has been changed to a yes/no question. There is
still a summary, but there is now a page for department
chairperson input. Please don’t send in the evaluation
without getting this from Jay.
3. Shannon expressed that if you are doing an evaluation
DON’T be nice if the instructor is not doing their job.
Once an instructor is on the preference list, even if they
are a bad instructor, it is difficult to get them off the list.
If they are on the list Jay has to offer them a class.
4. Jay said that yes there is a problem hiring adjunct, but
some that are not doing their jobs need to be removed.
5. Some discussion ensued about setting two levels of
standards, maybe a level of experience, so that instructors
are meeting qualifications for class levels.

PD Contract Jay Wiestling reported:
1. Your contracts are due September 15, 2012. Get on it if
you haven’t done it.

Dept. Policy/Over Enroll Jay Wiestling reported:
1. The original 40 (or whatever your enrollment number is),
should be given priority seating until the class starts. If
one of them is late to class, they do not get priority
seating. Once class starts students you have added can
take seats.
2. Jay relayed the issue he had with one parent about their
child not getting priority seating and without allowing Jay
to work on the problem, immediately called the Mayor’s
office and the fire department. We were able to make
some changes to classes with Berta’s help so that the fire
marshal wasn’t called in.
3. Jay has been trying for 10 years to get someone on this
campus to admit to him what the fire marshal code
(regarding room capacity) is and no one has an answer.

The motion carried.

Distinguished Faculty
Award Governance
Structure: Senators were provided with a copy of the Governance Structure Group Request form
currently being proposed by the Distinguished Faculty Award Committee.

Role: To select faculty members to be recipients of the Distinguished Faculty Award.

Reporting Relationship: Faculty Senate

Meeting Schedule: At least three times a year.

Chair: The Chair will be the DFA full-time faculty winner from two years prior. The
Vice-Chair will be the DFA full-time faculty winner of the previous year. The Chair and
the Vice-Chair will work closely together to prepare the Vice-Chair for the next year’s
Chair position. The Chair will then serve one more year on the committee as a member.

Faculty Members: Up to 8 full time Faculty at-large (at least 3 of whom are former
recipients) and up to 3 adjunct Faculty.

Patrick O’Brien indicated that he would be bringing this item back for Action at next
week’s meeting.

Team Life
Governance Structure: Greg Larson stated that the Team Life Committee is seeking a Faculty Senate
representative. There was some question from Senators as to why it had to be a Senate
representative rather than a faculty member at-large. Copies of the proposed Governance
Structure will be brought to next week’s meeting.

Student Services
Resources: Lillian Payn brought forward a recommendation of the Academic Technology Committee
(ATC) to address Title V requirements that students be offered the same services made
available to face-to-face students. While one solution would be for online instructors to
include a services page on their syllabi, another would be to have a global page on
Palomar.edu with those services. The ATC recommends that rather than instructors
providing their own page, that all instructors direct students to the same online page
(hht://www.palomar.edu/students/) as this would save instructors from having to
duplicate something available elsewhere, and it would be easier to keep a single page up-
to-date. The ATC also recommended specific things to make the page more useful,
including fixing broken links and adding phone numbers. The ATC also recommends
placing a link to the page in “Quick Links,” a link in eServices for students (both face-to-
face and online) to see when they register, and a reference to this page in Palomar Online
Education Training (POET) as a recommendation for instructors to include the link on
their syllabi.

Faculty Senate Meeting, August 20, 2012
Page 4


This item will be brought for Action at next week’s meeting.

Student Success
Task Force
Recommendations: Greg Larson reminded Senators that the Governance Structure for the Faculty Advisory
Board on Student Success Task Force Recommendations was approved by the Senate at
its May 7, 2012, meeting. The structure for the board is as follows:

CHAIR: Two Faculty Senators: Co-Chairs

Members:
One faculty representative from each of the following:
Basic Skills Committee
Curriculum Committee
Learning Outcomes Council
Student Services Planning Council

Other members:
VP of Instruction

Invited as needed:
Faculty at large

Representation of constituencies such as
Matriculation
Articulation
Counseling
Student Services
Financial Services
Research and Planning


Lengthy discussion followed on the roles and responsibilities, as well as membership of
the Board. There was some concern expressed that there may be overlap with other
groups, such as the Student Services Planning Council (SSPC), although there is probably
overlap with other groups as well. Some Senators questioned whether instead of the
Faculty Advisory Board, a work group should be formed to discuss strategies and then
meet with the appropriate committee(s) and bring those ideas together. However, one
Senator noted that the Senate discussed this issue over several weeks last semester and
agreed that the formation of the Faculty Advisory Board (FAB) was the appropriate
course of action, particularly when there are only two instructional faculty members
currently serving on the SSPC. The spirit behind the recommendation to form the
Faculty Advisory Board was to ensure that faculty had a voice in important decisions
made in response to the Student Success Task Force Recommendations. Another Senator
reminded the Senate that the Committee Structure was approved last year, so now it is
time to choose the co-chairs. Once the Board is formed the members can begin to more
clearly focus their goals. Senators agreed to review the Governance Structure again and
bring this item back for further discussion and/or action next week.

In relation to the actual recommendations, Greg Larson indicated that there are a total of
22, with 9 slated for immediate implementation. Among the 9 that are highly prioritized
are:
--Collaboration with K-12 to establish common academic standards
--Common assessments
--Enrollment priorities for students based on how successfully they follow the mission of
the college and adhere to an educational plan.
Faculty Senate Meeting, August 20, 2012

--Enrollment Management
--Student Success Score Card
.
Discussion followed on the recommendations, the ways in which they might affect
students and the college as a whole, and the need to provide resources for students.

ASG: Angel J imenez provided the following report from the ASG:

One introduction event has been held to allow an opportunity for students to meet the
new ASG President and Vice President, with another one scheduled. Because of the
success of the day, an Orientation has been scheduled for next week to provide additional
information about service in Student Government.

Palomar will work with CSUSM and Mira Costa to collaborate on an event to support the
passage of Proposition 30 and the importance of voting.

The ASG will schedule a “Scholarship Day” with numerous organizations, including the
Palomar College Foundation, to provide information on scholarship opportunities
available to students.

J iminez is working to create a program to acknowledge “Star Students” each month.
Faculty will be asked to identify those “star” students who stand out in their classes and
submit those names to the ASG. The ASG will then acknowledge those students by
visiting the classroom and presenting them with a certificate of recognition. It is hoped
that such a program will not only elevate school spirit, but promote the ASG and increase
membership interest.

Over the summer, J iminez was elected as the SSCCC Regional Advocacy Senator and
will travel to Sacramento each month to attend those meetings. She was also appointed as
Region X Advocacy Senator on the SSCCC Council (Equity and Diversity Committee
Academic Senate Student Rep for Standards, Equity, Access and Practices Committee).

The first meeting of the ASG for the semester will be held on Wednesday, August 22,
2012, at 1:00 p.m.

Learning Outcomes
Council: Katy French reported that many of the colleges have begun submitting their reports to the
ACCJ C, with Palomar’s due in the spring.

The first round of assessments for Information Literacy and Critical and Creative
Thinking for General Education/Institutional Learning Outcomes (GE/ILO’s) is
complete, and a draft report has been completed with the results, observations, ideas, and
recommendations. This draft will go to the Learning Outcomes Council (LOC) for
approval in the next few weeks. It will then be brought to the Senate before it is
distributed college-wide.

French added that she and Marty Furch have been invited to speak by the Research &
Planning group at the Student Success Conference about Palomar’s GE Assessment Plans
and the approach used in their implementation.

Strategic Planning
Council: Greg Larson stated that members of the Strategic Planning Council held their Orientation
meeting last week. The group has scheduled its next meeting early in September.


Governing Board: Greg Larson indicated that the Governing Board meetings over the summer were focused
on upcoming projects. There was also much discussion on Proposition 30 and efforts
underway by ASG President J onathan Farmer and Trustee Chadwick to promote its
passage.

Palomar Faculty
Federation: J ackie Martin reported that the Palomar Faculty Federation (PFF) was very active over
the summer. The annual audit has been completed and went well despite the challenges
involved with a change of leadership and the hiring of a new administrative assistant.

Faculty members are encouraged to check the PFF blog to keep up-to-date on the
activities of the PFF, and they have hopefully participated in the recent survey to provide
alternatives to potential salary cuts.

Instructional Planning
Council: Linda Morrow reminded all that PRP’s are due to deans on September 14, 2012.

Academic Technology: Lillian Payn provided the following report on Academic Technology:
Six new POET Certificates were issued over the summer months, and twenty-five faculty
members are currently enrolled. A “Blackboard Learn” upgrade was completed in J une,
and on August 2-5 Blackboard was closed down to complete a major upgrade.
To address any further database issues, David Gray has been approved to obtain some
additional “My Sequel” training.

The Academic Technology Committee will hold their first meeting of the semester on
Thursday, August 23.

ADJ OURNMENT: The meeting was adjourned at 3:29 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,


Pam McDonough, Secretary

GE/ILO Assessment
Plans 2012: Copies of the GE/ILO Spring 2012 Assessment plans were distributed for information:

FE/ILO Spring Assessment Plans
LOC report to Faculty Senate
J anuary 30, 2012

GE/ILOs to be assessed in Spring 2012
Critical and Creative Thinking
Information Literacy

Description of Assessment Project
Together with the Office of Institutional Research and Planning, LOC will identify a randomsample of courses
with one or more course SLOs mapped to one of the GE/Institutional Learning Outcomes being assessed this
semester (critical and creative thinking; information literacy).

Faculty teaching those identified courses will be invited to participate in the assessment of the outcome(s).
Participating faculty will select student work (e.g. exam, assignment, portfolio) that demonstrates students’
ability to meet the outcome. They will assess the outcome by applying a common rubric to student work. The
draft rubrics were developed by a PC faculty group in the summer of 2011. Participating faculty will refine and
normthe rubrics prior to using them.

After assessment, the faculty will provide summary reports to an LOC-appointed faculty group who will
compile the data, including feedback about the assessment process and the viability of the rubrics. The faculty
who participate will be compensated via the Strategic Planning Priority Funding approved by the Strategic
Planning Council.

1. To be eligible to participate, the course must have at least one course SLO mapped to the GE/ILO to be
assessed.
2. Topics, independent study, noncredit, and cross-listed courses are not eligible for selection.
3. Sections must have more than five (5) students in the section, and class must start by J anuary 30 (census
day).
4. Institutional Research & Planning staff will provide a randomsample of courses/sections to be assessed.
5. If an adequate number of sections is not selected in the first sample, a second sample will be pulled until
LOC confirms 20 sections for each GE/ILO being assessed. 20 sections are ample for a pilot programof
this nature.
6. A student roster will be re-pulled at the time of the assessment due date to ensure that students are enrolled
in the section.
7. Faculty whose courses are selected will be contacted individually by the SLOAC Coordinators and/or
POD Squad members and asked to participate. Faculty are not obligated to participate.
Faculty Senate Meeting, J anuary 30, 2012
Page 3


8. POD Squad members representing each division will contact participating faculty in the division to offer
to serve as a guide/contact during the process. POD Squad members will be compensated with 2011-12
SPPF money.
9. Faculty must sign an agreement outlining their responsibilities and LOC responsibilities throughout the
process.
10. Faculty must participate in training and must review, revise, and normthe rubrics. Faculty will administer
the assessment and score student artifacts using the rubrics.
11. Faculty will report the rubric scores for each student using a reporting formdeveloped by IR&P. Rubric
scores must be submitted to LOC by early May.
12. Faculty will report their experiences throughout the process via surveys, focus groups, and/or other means
as appropriate.
13. Upon completion of the process, faculty will receive a $500 stipend from SPPF money for their
participation.
14. A group appointed by LOC will analyze the assessment data and the process in Summer 2012.
15. Information should be disseminated to faculty. Assessment planning information – including the timeline,
the process, and the rubrics – should be included on the Learning Outcomes website.

Katy French also provided drafts for GE/Institutional SLO Critical & Creative Thinking,
and GE/Institutional SLO Information Literacy rubrics. French indicated that the
documents were developed over the summer. The rubrics will be reviewed and amended
as necessary by faculty who will then participate in the assessment. More information on
how the data will be used will be available later this semester.

A lengthy question and answer period followed as Senators reviewed the documents.

French indicated that, after the initial study, if the college decides to move forward with
this assessment method, the number of participating sections will rise to approximately
40-50 sections. In response to a question regarding student anonymity, French indicated
that all student and faculty names will be removed before analysis.

Grant Procedure: At last week’s meeting, Senators discussed the process used for grant application, and
questioned whether a formal process exists at Palomar. Currently, a faculty member
would discuss their intent to apply for a grant with their dean and the Vice President of
Instruction. Michelle Barton would also be included in the discussion because of her
expertise in the grant writing process.

There was additional discussion on the current process, noting that grants including
significant release time or stipends need to go through the Palomar Faculty Federation.
Rather than coming up with a formal procedure, Senators agreed that the SenatePresident
should provide general directions via email to all department chairs, deans, the Vice
President of Instruction, the Palomar College Foundation, and Michelle Barton, outlining
the various steps needed for a successful outcome.

Student Success
Task Force: Monika Brannick indicated that, in an effort to keep everyone informed of the progress
toward implementation of the Student Success Task Force recommendations, the
Chancellor’s Communications Office has launched a monthly newsletter. The newsletter
will be distributed to all Chief Instructional Officers in an attempt to keep everyone
updated on the progress, key dates, legislation, and other topics relevant to the student
success recommendations.

The Senate Education and Assembly Higher Education committees have scheduled a
February 1 joint hearing to review the Student Success Task Force (SSTF)
recommendations. The hearing will be held 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Capitol, room
4202. The Education Budget Subcommittees from both houses have also been invited to

Faculty Senate Meeting, J anuary 30, 2012
Page 4

participate. The legislation that formed the SSTF (SB 1143, Liu) included a provision
that the recommendations be presented to the Legislature no later than March 2012.

After the Board of Governors unanimously endorsed the recommendations of the SSTF at
its J anuary meeting, the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office is moving
toward a phased-in, coordinated implementation of the recommendations that will
include consultation with a wide range of stakeholders. Some of the recommendations
can be moved on rather quickly, others will take longer. Working groups are being
identified and will develop strategies for the most effective implementation of the
recommendations.

Discussion followed on the impact to students as more and more class sections are
removed. Monika Brannick reminded all of the need for the formation of a Palomar
College task force to review the recommendations and determine the best way to proceed
for Palomar students and faculty.

Accreditation: Monika Brannick reported that the Governing Board continues their review and
discussion of the Accreditation Mid-Term Report.

Policies & Procedures: Monika Brannick provided a review of AP 7120, Recruitment & Hiring, on the overhead.
She reminded all that this had come to the Senate previously, where some changes were
recommended and the document was sent back to the Policies & Procedures Task Force
for their input on those changes.

Brannick indicated that Vice President Tortarolo was supportive of all of the
recommendations suggested by the Senate, with the exception of the following addition:
“For faculty hiring, the Superintendent/President relies primarily on the recommendation of the
selection committee.” Currently, in accordance with Article 7.1 of the contract, the
Superintendent/President makes the final decision after two candidates are brought
forward and supported equally by the selection committee.

Discussion followed on the language in the document and whether the Senate should
request that members of the Policy & Procedures Task Force review the recommendation
again for reconsideration. Brannick noted that the document has been brought before the
group several times and the changes suggested by the Senate were not supported.

The document will be brought to the next Policies & Procedures Task Force in February
with the Senate’s request for reconsideration.

ASG: Armando Telles reported that members of the ASG arepreparing to elect members of the
Elections Committee and the Executive Board President and Vice President for the next
term.

February is African American History month with several events scheduled for students
to celebrate the contributions of African Americans to our society.

Learning Outcomes
Council: Katy French reported that, at the last Learning Outcomes Council meeting, the group
discussed adding the program Learning Outcomes to the online college catalog.

President Deegan: Monika Brannick and Fari Towfiq will meet with President Deegan for their bi-monthly
meeting on February 7.

Student Services
Planning Council: Diane Studinka indicated that members of the Student Services Planning Council are
currently discussing SPPF funding, including the Student Equipment Technology Priority
Master List, and the vacant, budgeted, and proposed positions for the Student Services
List. Studinka indicated that she has requested that those positions funded by grants be
placed in a separate category than those funded by the district.

Academic Technology
Committee: Lillian Payn reported that members of the Academic Technology Committee held another
POET (Palomar Online Education Training) session on Friday, J anuary 27. One-on-one
sessions will also be offered to those who request them.

Payn added that she met with Accreditation Co-Chair Brent Gowen last week to discuss
POET training and how it can be tied in to the Accreditation Report.

Members of the Academic Technology Committee met on J anuary 26 and established
their goals, addressing topics such as future training and lab space. The group also
discussed a recommendation regarding the Distance Education Policy, and made
recommendations regarding Digital Information Literacy as a basic skill and how that
training and testing could be implemented. There was also discussion of possibly
reformatting the check-list. The group will meet again on February 9.

ADJ OURNMENT: The meeting was adjourned at 3:36 p.m.

Lori Graham announced that she recently attended a Chancellor’s Office Consumer &
Design Education committee meeting and learned that the title of Career & Technical
Education at the Chancellor’s Office has been changed to Career Education Practices
Unit.

Graham also indicated that new laws also require for-profit institutions to disclose that

GE/ILO Assessment
Project: At last week’s meeting, Katy French provided Senators with a copy of the GE/ILO
Spring 2012 Assessment plan, drafts for GE/Institutional SLO Critical & Creative
Thinking, and GE/Institutional Information Literacy rubrics, and lengthy discussion
occurred on the upcoming process.

This week, French provided Senate members with a copy of the Palomar College 2012
GE/ILO Assessment Project Faculty Agreement:

Description of Assessment Project
Together with the Office of Institutional Research and Planning (IR&P), the Learning Outcomes Council (LOC)
identified a randomsample of courses with one or more course SLOs mapped to one of the GE/Institutional
Learning Outcomes being assessed this semester (critical and creative thinking; information literacy).

Faculty teaching those identified courses will be invited to participate in the assessment of the outcome(s).
Participating faculty will select student work (e.g. exam, assignment, portfolio) that demonstrates students’
ability to meet the outcome. They will assess the outcome by applying a common rubric to student work. The
draft rubrics were developed by a PC faculty group in the summer of 2011. Participating faculty will refine and
normthe rubrics prior to using them.

After assessment, the faculty will provide summary reports to an LOC-appointed faculty group who will
compile the data, including feedback about the assessment process and the viability of the rubrics. The faculty
who participate will be compensated via the Strategic Planning Priority Funding approved by the Strategic
Planning Council.
The two GE/ILOs being assessed this semester are Critical and Creative Thinking, and Information Literacy.

Faculty Expectations
By agreeing to participate in this project, you agree to the following:

1. Attend one 3 hour session where the SLOAC Coordinators will describe the assessment process. You will also
use this time to work with other participating faculty to review, revise, and normthe assessment rubric. You

LOC Expectations
The Learning Outcomes Council agrees to provide you with support as described below and to abide by the
following guidelines in carrying out this assessment project.

1. You will be assigned a faculty mentor fromour POD squad to assist you throughout the assessment process.
2. A student roster will be re-pulled when you are ready to report your assessment results to ensure an accurate
student roster.
3. A group appointed by LOC will analyze the assessment data and the process in Summer 2012.
4. All faculty and student names will be removed fromthe data before analysis begins.
5. We have identified a randomselection of course sections in order to assess a randomsample of students. This
project is not assessing individual courses or instructors. We are assessing students’ ability to meet one of two
GE/ILOs at a given point during their academic career. Our analysis will involve looking at groups of students,
e.g. student who have completed 3 units, 15 units, 30 units or more; transfer students, CTEE students, basic
skills students; gender; race, etc.
6. In fall 2012, LOC will share results of the assessment project with the College and facilitate dialog regarding
the results.

Katy French reported that Learning Outcomes Council Coordinator Marty Furch
distributed an email to all faculty earlier in the day describing the Assessment Plans
again. Faculty members who are randomly selected to participate will be notified this
week. Lengthy discussion occurred on issues such as the timeline, departmental
involvement, and maintaining privacy for faculty and students.

Senate members agreed that, although there may be concerns or reservations about this
process, in order to comply with Accreditation requirements it is crucial to be supportive
of the Learning Outcomes Council as the work begins and revisit any issues that arise
after the first cycle is complete. Senators agreed that there is a need for the Faculty
Senate to pass a motion or resolution expressing the Senate’s support of the council’s
efforts in meeting the Accreditation Standards by creating the process, even while serious
concerns remain.

This issue will be brought back for Faculty Senate Action at next week’s meeting.

Student Success
Task Force
Recommendations: Monika Brannick reported that a revised copy of the Student Success Act of 2012, along
with a bill summary highlighting key changes, has been distributed to all faculty via
email. Amendments have been proposed to update what is now the matriculation program
to frame the Task Force’s vision of student success and support services. The
amendments would provide the statutory authority for the Board of Governors (BOG) to
require that: 1) students participate in orientation, assessment and education planning; 2)
colleges or districts receiving Student Success and Support Program funds implement the
common assessment and accountability scorecard; and 3) students meet academic
requirements to be eligible for the BOG Fee Waiver as determined by the Board.

This is a first draft and will be the subject of significant ongoing discussions that likely
will lead to language changes as the bill moves through the legislative process. The
deliberations around this legislation will focus on how to most effectively implement the
Student Success Task Force recommendations, and will include discussions about fine-
tuning the policy, time lines, and resources. The Chancellor’s Office plans to use a
combination of existing advisory committees and new work groups to assist in this
process. The bill language was recently reviewed in detail with the Matriculation
Advisory Committee and Financial Aid Regional Representatives Technical Advisory
Committee and the input from these groups was incorporated to improve the first draft.
These groups and others will continue to provide input and advice as the proposal
advances.

The proposed bill language will be brought to the next Consultation Council meeting for
a full discussion prior to the bill deadline of February 24. Each month thereafter, this
body will have the opportunity to review and discuss new changes and ongoing
implementation issues. Copies of the documents can be reviewed at:

Greg Larson noted that the Curriculum Committee would hold their next meeting on
March 14.

GE/ILO Assessment
Plans Resolution: At the February 6 and February 13 Senate meetings, there was discussion on the
possibility of bringing forward a resolution supporting the members of the Learning
Outcomes Council (LOC) in their work even though there may be reservations about the
process itself. Monika Brannick expressed her concerns about bringing forward such a
resolution at this time. It was suggested that perhaps the Senate would like to consider
making a motion endorsing the process while noting that changes may need to be made
as the process moves forward.

Senators discussed their support of the LOC while still having concern for the Student
Learning Outcomes process including issues relating to instructor and student
confidentiality, access, and academic freedom, and the need to have those concerns
voiced publicly and on the record.

Motion 5 MS Bishop: The Faculty Senate endorses the work of the Learning Outcomes Council
and the product, while recognizing that it is inherently flawed. The motion died for a lack
of a second.

Motion 6 MSC Kelber, Laughlin: The Faculty Senate supports the GE/ILO Assessment Plan and
requests special consideration of the following elements of the plan, as these are areas of
particular concern for the Faculty Senate: privacy, the role of department chairs, the
effect of the stipend, and questions regarding statistical significance. The motion carried.

Service Points: Monika Brannick referred to an email she received from Professional Development
Coordinator Leanne Maunu. Members of the Professional Development Advisory Board
have brought forward recommendations regarding Service Points:
Academic Technology Committee – change to 2 points a semester since it meets twice a month.
Learning Outcomes Council – change to 2 points a semester since it meets twice a month.



Faculty Senate Meeting, February 27, 2012
Page 9

Any Hiring Committee – change to 2 points a semester since hiring committees require many hours
of work.
STEM I and II Steering Committee should each have 1 Service Point per semester attached to
them.

Senate members noted that an increase should be brought forward for serving on the
Faculty Senate since it meets once per week. It was also stated that Service Points should
be provided to those assigned to formal working groups, which usually meet frequently.

Motion 7 MSC Laughlin, Bishop: Faculty Senate support of the increase in the number of Service
Points to 2 per semester to those serving on the Academic Technology Committee, the
Learning Outcomes Council, and any hiring committee. The motion carried.

Faculty Senate Student
Success Task Force: Monika Brannick reported that Senators on the Faculty Senate Student Success Task
Force continue to meet each week. The group is currently discussing the creation of a
steering committee.

She added that the two forums held last week were well attended by faculty.

Student Success
Task Force: On Friday, February 24, Senate Bill 1456, the Student Success Act of 2012, was
introduced. The author of the bill is Senator Lowenthal and the co-author is Senator Liu.
It is expected that the first Senate Education Committee policy hearing will be held in
Mid-April. A copy of the bill can be accessed at http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/pub/11-
12/bill/sen/sb_1451-1500/sb_1456_bill_20120224_introduced.pdf.

Senators discussed ways to keep faculty and students informed of the ongoing changes
relating to these issues. Wendy Nelson added that she is encouraging reporters from The
Telescope to do a series on Student Success and the Student Success Task Force.

Accreditation: Katy French shared part of a letter sent to Vice President Cuaron from the ACCJ C on
when and how they will assess whether Palomar has reached Proficiency Level for
Student Learning Outcomes and Assessment:

…Colleges are expected to be at the sustainable, continuous, quality improvement level in the areas
of ProgramReview and Planning.

Beginning in Fall of 2012, colleges are expected to be at the proficiency level with Student
Learning Outcomes. In order to validate their implementation level of Student Learning Outcomes
Assessment, colleges will be asked to submit a report to the Commission. The format for this report

Faculty Senate Meeting, February 27, 2012
Page 10

will be finalized by the Commission at its Commission Development Workshop and will be
distributed to the colleges by the first week in April…

French added that Palomar’s report will be due in Spring of 2013.

Wendy Nelson added that the ACCJ C is considering a close examination not only of the
number of assessments but of the quality of the assessments as well.

Policies & Procedures: Monika Brannick shared BP 4231, Grade Changes (Exhibit A), and BP 7361, Academic
Due Process (Exhibit B), on the overhead. Senators discussed the documents and
Brannick noted the minor changes. With no objections, these will be forwarded on to the
Policies & Procedures Task Force.

Academic Technology
Committee: Lillian Payn reported that a third instructor has completed the POET (Palomar Online
Educational Training) Series.

She noted issues with the Sandbox last week, and stated that there are some issues with
Blackboard that need to be addressed. In the meantime, the old version of Blackboard has
been reinstalled and it is up and running.

Payn also shared copies of the Spring 2011 version of Palomar’s Validation of
Preparedness to Teach Online as well as the updated Online Course Best Practices
Checklist. She noted some of the changes and encouraged Senators to review the
documents and provide suggestions at next week’s meeting.

ADJ OURNMENT: The meeting was adjourned at 3:34 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,



Melinda Carrillo, Secretary

Proposed Palomar Community College District Policy CCLC No. 7361

Human Resources
DRAFT as of 12/12/08

BP 7361 ACADEMIC DUE PROCESS
Should it be moved into chapter 4?

Monika requested that this policy be reviewed again at the February 20, 2009 Meeting

 From current Palomar Policy 177 titled Academic Due Process (81-8903)

The Governing Board endorses the principles of academic due process. The principle embodied in the legal concept
of confrontation of witnesses and examination of evidence should govern academic due process. Each individual
must be informed of all the charges and all the evidence against him/her; he/she must be given full opportunity to
deny, refute, and rebut. It is a fundamental principle of fairness that charges against a person are to be made the
basis of action only when proven, and that the burden of proof rests upon those who bring the charges.

Personnel issues may involve contractual grievances or non-contractual disputes or problems. The former will be
resolved through the grievance procedure of the collective bargaining agreement between the District and the appropriate
union: CCE/AFT or PFF/AFT. Non-contractual employment disputes for administrative, supervisory, and confidential
employees are resolved by the procedures in their respective employee handbooks.

Other c Conflicts between or among faculty members may be addressed through the District’s Faculty Senate’s
Academic Due Process Policy and Procedure, which is available may be found on the Faculty Senate’s web page.

Claims of discrimination on the basis of sex, race, or handicap are grievable.

To ensure implementation of academic due process in the disposition of any personnel issue on campus, the College
adopts the following principles:
A. All issues will be processed in the sequence of preliminary action, informal conciliation, formal hearing and
final action within a reasonable time schedule. In the case of extenuating circumstances or pressing
vacation problems AND with the mutual consent of both parties, the time limits indicated in the Guidelines
and Procedures may be extended.
B. Informal conciliation shall be conducted by an ombudsperson, a person dispassionate to the issues of the
dispute and acceptable to both parties in accordance with the following principles:
1. Charges or complaints will be presented in writing to the ombudsperson, who will provide copies to
the other party.
2. Only parties to the dispute and the ombudsperson shall be present at the conciliatory conference.
No tape or other recording of these informal proceedings shall be made.
3. The person making the charge shall assume the burden of proof.
4. The ombudsperson will keep all proceedings at this stage confidential.
C. The committee responsible for the formal hearing on the issues shall conduct its proceedings according to
the following guidelines:
1. The committee shall receive a signed, written charge specifying the time, place, and nature of the
charge and transmit a copy to each party with due notification of rights and responsibilities in the
procedure for disposing of the charge.
2. The committee shall discuss the charge, examine witnesses and receive all available evidence
pertaining to the charge.
3. Both parties shall have the right to present statements, testimony, evidence, and witnesses. Each
party shall have the right to be represented by counsel and to question witnesses.
4. The accused person may be present at the hearing and be represented by a person of his/her
choice.
5. The person making the charge shall assume the burden of proof.
6. The hearing shall be closed to the public unless the accused person desires a public hearing.
Privileged information will not be disclosed or discussed outside the hearing except at the express
request of the accused.
7. The committee shall judge the relevance and weight of testimony and evidence. It shall make its
findings of fact, limiting its investigation to the formal charge. It shall make recommendations for
disposition of the charges.
8. A transcript of the proceedings shall be kept in a confidential file and shall be available at all times
to the accused person.
D. It is desired and anticipated that the Superintendent/President of the College, or designee, and the
Governing Board shall be governed by the recommendation of the hearing committee.
