HLC/NCA Accreditation at Phoenix College
Present: Brent, Betsy, Mike, Jill, Darren, Ann, Leonard, Bonnie, Dennis, Alverta.
The meeting began with Ann giving a brief review of what the agenda for the meeting would be:
2. Question about self-study process, our criterion.
3. Review of 2A
4. Next meeting, Oct. 11th (Monday) HC-3, will look at 2B
Once the agenda was explained, Ann had the new committee members introduce themselves.
Ann then handed out minutes of the last meeting and asked the group to review them and send an email to her if they had any changes.
Then a chart that lists different areas and the evidence/data that can fall under 2A was handed out. The team discussed the chart and came up with the following suggestions/additions to the chart:
Technology - tech plan (91-01) that Dr. Matte wrote, Darren has the plan, and will get all technology plans. PCLan, fiber optics got implemented from this tech plan, labs, Business, Applied Business have advisory councils, Title V planning and goals. A lot of the planning that is done is based on what is the best thing to do at the right time. It appears that we are moving along in tech but it is not a coordinated plan, need to say that. Trying to standardize what tech/media goes into the classrooms. Delivery point not really addressed; no implementation plan for it. (Mike, Darren, Ann meeting to see where the gaps are, where implementation is, etc.)
Financial planning = grants, hiring of grant coordinator, legally have to fund after grant expires, look at grants, types and numbers since 10 yrs ago. Now that we have had diff types and num of grants, constructive criticism is need to get more org in planning them out, planning process needs to be kept in mind, do we advertise the criteria, processing, continuity issues, talking of outside grants, = this could be an area of opportunity
can be seen as a best practice because we are using this as an opportunity for improvement, looking to the future.
When we make the statement that this is an area of opportunity, what is it based on? Based on what is being said, what weve observed.
After this discussion Ann the gave a copy of the climate survey to review and see if there is anything that fits into Criterion 2 and any areas that are relevant or that can be used as evidence.
The meeting ended by letting everyone know what their assignments were and assuring them that they do not need to be ready for the next meeting.
