the unmet goals referring to question #4. The statements assume that these goals will not be continued.
Under the program’s CTAs, PPD should be PDD. KinderCaminita should be KinderCaminata. Perhaps
establishing a relationship with the local Toastmasters or Rotary Club of San Jose could entice the
program to develop an advisory board. Otherwise those could serve as great collaborators to the
program. - Mata

4/19/10 IEC comments:
- Expand courses for non-native speakers of English. Include more “multicultural communication” –
global focus
- Identify strength + weakness of department
- It’s hard to understand exactly what they do
- Align unmet goals or new initiatives so faculty can continue to address
- Consider expanding “Communication’s” role beyond human communications (verbal skills) include
media, technology influence or impact
- There’s no concrete plans to improve the departments. We need them to develop a vision.
