    Approval of notes

    The notes from October 30, 2018 were approved.

    Update on status of budget reduction proposals

    Thomas Ray shared that College Council accepted IPBT’s recommendation Scenario B with the caveat that Football’s reduction plan be re-presented with details to the Viability Committee and then for IPBT again. Football was given a two-week extension to present a plan to save the program. Ray noted the reduction plan could include other savings in PE to save the program.

    Comments and Suggestions:

    • If Football stays, Water Polo (women) will remain as well; the answer was yes, the Title 9 issue.
    • Can other programs return back with a plan? Ray commented that eliminating Football will impact our most vulnerable student populations; that’s why Football was singled out of the plan. Seventy students will be impacted should the program be eliminated.
    • Are these students full-time only during football season? Mallory Newell provided Football’s five years retention data from fall to spring; 62% of students retain after a season.
    • What is the retention rate and how does it compare to others? Ray replied that it’s up to Viability Committee to review.
    • IPBT members expressed the Football plan has to be zero cost to other areas on plan B.

    Ray repeated that Football’s proposal will be reviewed by IPBT before submitting a recommendation, which will require another vote.

    Program Review –  Update of documents

    Alves de Lima, the IPBT faculty rep on the College Planning committee, advised the team to visit their website to be familiar the Metrics and Goals.

    Pape asked the group for any input on questions change.

    The team expressed some interest in revising questions on enrollment trends, growth and decline of student populations, equity goals and sustainability plans. What resources they will be needed to grow enrollment?

    Should the Viability process be a year around process to continue improvement?

    The team stressed that questions need to be more specific to be meaningful.

    The committee was instructed, should they have any Program Review questions to send them directly Mary Pape.

    Make sure your department resource request spreadsheet and Program Reviews are listed on IPBT website. If not, contact Olga Evert.
