Faculty Staff Administration Survey Results
Results of the Faculty Staff Administration fall 2005 survey were previously distributed via email to steering committee members. These are the results Beth compiled. They should be used versus waiting for Sherrie Ann to complete her compilation; she is very busy with other assignments. Discussion of the results occurred.
 
Student Survey
At the Sep 1 meeting Beth had agreed to speak to Dean Carroll regarding a Draft Student Government Survey created spring 2005. Apparently Student Government discussed a survey with Dean Carroll at the end of spring semester 2005. They scheduled a second meeting to work on questions with Dean Carroll but with the change in Student Government leadership and the end of the semester, this did not occur. Dean Carroll does not have copies of the preliminary questions.   
 
Beth reported she also asked Keala Pihana, previous student government president, if she knew the whereabouts of the questions. Keala emailed other senators but was unable to locate the phantom list. Kathy Rodriquez agreed that if there was a list of questions it was no longer available. She reported that Student Government would be meeting Friday, Sep 16. Jennie agreed to go to the meeting to see if they had questions to include in the survey.
 
Steering Committee Members are to submit questions they would like to have on the student survey to Beth by Tuesday, September 27. She will compile them for review at the September 29 Accreditation Steering Committee meeting.  

Standard Chair Reports
Lou reported on the Sep 9 Standard IV meeting with the UHCC system. The system has asked each college to submit their write-up for Standard IV self evaluation and planning sections. The system plans to form a committee to hammer out “the answer”. Lou reported he asked how the committee would be formed but did not receive an answer.  
 
Other chairs had no significant news to report.
 
SLOs
Dialog occurred on the college’s conscious effort to insure student learning outcomes are being defined. Division Chairs are responsible for developing a strategy for doing so within their areas.

ACCJC Report
Doug reported the UHCC system is writing a respond to the system portion of the progress report due to ACCJC by October 15.
 
Next Meeting
The next Meeting is Thursday, September 29 at 9-11
