    Committee Reports
    • IPBT
      • 3 Scenarios for Budget Reduction Proposals in Instruction were presented for IPBT to review and vote.  The notes and the 3 Scenarios are posted to IPBT website
      • Scenario B received the highest number of votes in IPBT. Therefore, it was recommended to the College Council.

      • At the College Council meeting on October 25, College Council voted to accept SSPBT’s recommendation for budget reductions in Student Services.  At the College Council November 1 meeting, College Council accepted the IPBT recommendation of Scenario B, with the condition that P.E. Division could propose alternatives to eliminating Football and Women’s Water Polo teams if proposal were submitted within two weeks.

    Campus and District Smoking Policy
    • Mary Sullivan presented a PPT on where we are currently with our district smoking policy.  Our current policy would receive a grade of “C” according to the current Chancellor’s Office recommendation. We can increase the grade to an “A” if we adopt a 100% no smoking policy. A draft of what would have to change in the current policy was presented in the PPT. Sullivan also shared 100% non-smoking policies at CSU and UC campuses and the toxic ingredients in all parts of cigarettes.
    • Motion to adopt 100% smoke-free policy made by Rob Clem, seconded by Cheryl Balm. 
      • The discussion raised focused on current lack of enforcement of the policy, especially vaping, in non-smoking areas; student input from DASB rep Josephine Lukius; and an explanation of the process to change the smoking policy.  If Academic Senate recommends changing the policy to a 100% no smoking policy, then Karen would take that recommendation to Chancellor’s Advisory Council. DASB rep Josephine shared that many students do smoke and having no designated smoking areas may cause students to smoke and litter illegally across the campus rather than containing the smoke in the designated smoking area. Alicia D. shared that she met a student veteran in the designated smoking area, who told her that the smoking area is where many vets find and form community with other vets who often smoke as a way of coping with PTSD.
      • Vote on the motion failed (8 abstentions) 
    • Erik W. motioned to table the vote to approve, Cheryl seconded. Passed with no objections

    UndocuAlly Trainings & Request
    • Steve Nava presented the dates and topics of the UndocuAlly trainings this fall.  UndocuAlly trainings are planned for every quarter.
    • Last year, Academic Senate awarded $500 to UndocuAlly Training.  This year they are returning to the Senate with an additional request of $550.  Next year they hope to secure funding from HEFAS.
    • A question posed to Steve N: “If you can’t attend the first meeting of the training, can you attend the second?”  Steve said yes.
