This is the longest possible re-accreditation permitted by WASC. President Karnig expressed his appreciation to Dr. Pritchard and the committee for their work. Dr. Pritchard stated CSUSB is the first campus to go through the entire new process. Informational Handouts President Karnig discussed the following information handouts: An article from The Chronicle of Higher Education, dated March 4, entitled “New Survey Confirms Sharp Drop in Applications to U.S. Colleges from Foreign Graduate Students.” A memorandum from Vincent Buck, Faculty Co-Chair, CSU Institute for Teaching and Learning Advisory Board and Mary Allen, CSU Institute for Teaching and Learning Faculty Director, dated February 26, regarding The Importance of Support of Faculty Development. CSUSB talking points entitled “Impact of State Budget Cuts on Cal State San Bernardino.” An editorial, written by Dr. William Aguilar, from Inland Empire Hispanic News, dated February 25, entitled “What Does it Mean to be an Hispanic Serving Institution.” From the Cal State System talking points entitled “Joint Advocacy Messages.” Summer Class Schedule President Karnig stated that the Presidents would know by noon if the CSU System has reached an agreement with the CFA regarding summer pay and that he would notify the Provost of the decision. President Karnig stated that CSUSB would continue to move forward with summer plans. Student Assistant Hiring Mr. West provided a proposal on the Student Assistant and Bridge Student Assistant Hiring Process, which also included information on problems encountered under the current decentralized process. It is proposed that the Student Assistant/Student Bridge Personnel Program be centralized in the Career Development Center and to hire an Administrative Support Coordinator to coordinate and maintain the program with each division contributing a certain percentage of money to fund the position. This plan would reduce the number of end-users in order to enhance data integrity and reduce the number of errors that may cause a delay in student pay. It was also recommended that Doris Selva Pagan be the trainer and subject matter expert. President Karnig stated that given the budgetary constraints, we should continue with the decentralized process and requested that: Dr. Aguilar work with Mr. West to prepare a statement of responsibility for the end-users and bring it back for review. If a dean or vice president has an additional person to add to the list of end-users, to report that information to Mr. West. If one person doesn’t suffice, then work it out with Mr. West. Maintain an accurate record of those staff who aren’t completing the information properly and notify the supervisor, as the staff member may need additional training. The concept of reducing the number of end users from 36 to 12 was endorsed. Upward Bound Dr. Rincon reported that this past summer Upward Bound was notified that the program was not going to be funded. Upward Bound is working on funding strategies that will get them through until the next proposal cycle. One such funding strategy is a benefit dinner scheduled for Saturday, March 13th with Mr. Bernard Parks, Los Angeles City Council member and former Los Angeles Chief of Police as the speaker. Dr. Rincon encouraged Council members to attend the event to show their support of the program. New Business Dean Arlin congratulated President Karnig and Mike Tracey for the excellent scholarship event held last Friday evening. Dean Marks announced that candidates for the Dean of Business and Public Administration will be on campus this week.
