    • Proposal for Book Lights to Incentivize Input on EAT ideas
      • 4:14 - Karen presents folding book light as an option to harness interest in faculty in assisting with feedback on EAT ideas.
        • Robert Alexander’s concern regarding his class that was canceled at 19
        • Cheryl reps say that they have been speaking and that they don’t feel heard, that some faculty don’t feel that enrollment is our job. Being myopic with cuts- we need to look at how students are impacted if prerequisite classes such as Math 212 are cut--they are less likely to return to enroll again.
        • Chris commented “we need to stop treating this as if we are selling widgets.” Recommends matriculation, students are having fragmented experiences from attending multiple colleges
        • Are we having these conversations at the department/division level?
        • Karen stated that the seat fill needs to be at 37 for the college to break even.

        • Tom- can we bring in an outside enrollment consultant
        • Guided pathways? Karen is attending a workshop on Nov 7 and will return with more information.
