reporting is required pursuant to section 53004(a).

Indians or Alaskan natives, Asians or Pacific Islanders,
Blacks/African-Americans, and Hispanics/Latinos.
(2) Ethnic Group Identification. "Ethnic group

shall be more specifically defined by the Chancellor consistent with state and
District Evaluation and Report to Chancellor.

the implementation of its equal employment opportunity plan and to provide data
needed for the analyses required by sections 53003, 53006, 53023, and 53024.
Each district shall annually report to the Chancellor, in a manner prescribed by

Asian Indians, Hawaiians, Guamanians, Samoans, Laotians, and Cambodians are to
be counted and reported as part of the Asian/Pacific
Islander group as well as in separate subcategories. However, in determining

An e-mail has been sent out from Fred and Mike Gilmartin asking for
acknowledgment of program-level SLOs for transfer programs. The e-mail was reviewed by AAAG, and revised. Please ehelp
your colleagues understand this issue. Please refer them to me or Mike with any
questions. Main point: we view the entering of transfer-level SLOs into
CurricUNET as an administrative step of a plan we have already spent a great

From Sue Hanna:
On the topic of the Staff Development Fund that is currently
used for lunches for flex days, nursing faculty had some input: they felt that
the food (in some form) was very important to the networking benefits of flex
days, that is, the chance for faculty from different departments to gather
around the coffee and doughnuts to meet, greet, and share ideas. Their
suggestion was to move away from cafeteria-catered food which is expensive. Deb
suggested that she has cut the cost of certain lunch meetings in half by
purchasing food at Costco rather than having it catered on campus.
These ideas were discussed at our Monday Faculty meeting in
response to the request from Doug for input on the use of the funds. Faculty
felt some food was very important in order to draw people. One suggestion was to
trade the AM and lunch option for a mid-morning snack between speakers. This
coincided with discussion about the need for a break between morning speakers
and how this might be facilitated with food. Anyway, wanted to provide that
input and to apologize for missing today’s meeting.
