AAAG -- Feb 18

Heard information about Program Review data. The institution needs to find a way to get this type of information to Division and Dept chairs to use when writing the six-year program reviews. It was implied that there may be changes to Program Review processes in the near future. Program Review is one of the 10+1. How should Academic Senate handle this? Should the program review discussions be spearheaded by AAAG, since those members are more familiar with program review than the Academic Senate representatives? The Academic Senate could remain the primary body on SLOs and the integratoin of SLOs into the program review.


Should we agendize this question for the March 5 meeting?


Budget Advisory Committee

Has been resurrected after a long time MIA.

Earl reported that Walt has asked him to prepare a "facts only" historical budget report to help provide context about our current budget situation. Hopefully we will see this report at the next Budget Advisory Committee meeting on March 16.
