One focus is for - Dr. Huerta & students to declare a major when they are admitted. Mr. Mr. Ledesma Ledesma will work on starting a "Freshman Year Experience" where we may want to consider how to coordinate, who to target. Elements we want to incorporate include: -- Curriculum: developmental, college success, and distance Informational Item learning -- Advising: comprehensive orientation, professional advising, peer advising (get more successful students involved) -- Mentoring: faculty, staff, peers -- Academic Support: tutoring, technical support (labs, library), training for faculty (how to provide academic support) -- Counseling: career, academic, personal -- Seminars: alcohol and drug abuse, cultural, educational psychology (emotional development, base line theory), ethics, life skills -- Case Management: oversight of all activities, personal contact (another connection), feedback (from students about services), referrals (help student with process) -- Research: peer institutions, academic research, training (keep student motivated) -- Evaluation: activities, grades, persistence, graduation Dr. Huerta added the college needed to look at the students Informational Item we are losing, especially first time, full time students. Mr. Ledesma along with Mr. Mazdra and the department chairs and program directors will be involved. Dr. Huerta noted students who declare a major are more likely to complete studies. Ms. Chairez added that many students end up not making academic progress and not meeting the lottery scholarship requirement. Of the 240 students evaluated, only 11 were eligible for the Academic Competitive Grant which is a federal grant. Mr. Pifia noted the initiative would cost money. Mr. Ledesma noted a committee would be formed to look at what we can and can't do. A lot of people will need to be involved. Dr. Huerta noted this go around, the college would not be submitting a Title V grant. Next year, based on strategic plans, we could possibly apply and be funded by Title V. Mr. Owensby noted historically, SBDC has been detached, but they would love to get involved. SBDC would be happy to be guest speakers in classes. Mr. Chappell added that it could be more formalized if it goes to Faculty Council. Ms. Nickerson noted she and Ms. Rodriguez have met with Mr. Ledesma and feel ABE fits perfectly with this idea. Mr. Ledesma noted he would include everyone. Dr. Huerta added reporting impacts us and student success is very important Dr. Huerta noted she met with Dr. Lillibridge on the Informational Item recommended strategic priorities. Dr. Lillibridge noted the 08-12 strategic priorities were: 1) graduate more students (credit and ABE); 2) culture of evidence (for budgets, standardize); 3) communication (internal and external, focus on web, communication with part time faculty); 4) partnerships (all kinds, k-12, four year, industry, business); 5) facilities (related to growth); and 6) technology (are we able to keep up). Dr. Chieffo concurred with waiting a year, piloting through AtD, and then the writing of the Title V proposal should begin December 2007 with submission March 2008. This will give us time to research, visit places. Ms. Nickerson asked who she could meet with regarding ideas to transition ABE students to college. Mr. Ledesma noted it would be him and to please submit ideas. Dr. Huerta noted she would form task forces for each strategic priority and have them submit reports. Dr. Lillibridge noted the strategic plan was due in December. 4 - Facilities Mr. Burke noted progress had been made on the Workforce Informational Item Update-Mr. Center. The bids were opened this week. It's a $4 million Burke budget, $3 million construction bid, and it has three alternatives (new, ole, renovation). We were able to get all within budget. Ray Ward & Sons were awarded the bid. They have worked with Rem Alley (architect) before and there is a good connection. The contract will be established in the next few weeks. Pre-construction meetings are scheduled of the end of next month. Ms. Reddington is the point person. We do not anticipate any problems. Ms. Reddington added we need to work on getting everything out of the back area. Mr. Burke noted he was working with Gary Williams on Informational Item the East Mesa Center design.

We are working on getting architects for Hatch, Chaparral, and Phase II of Gadsden. Mr. Owensby asked that SBDC be given times when classes are not meeting here at the Las Cruces campus. The Workforce Center construction is expected to last nine months and he would like alternative class space to hold classes, training, etc. Mr. Burke noted operations would not be shut down. This will be addressed at the pre- construction meeting. The work will be done in three pieces. Dr. Glenn noted the problem in his area would be front office space and staff being displaced.

For faculty, main campus is looking the division deans, at giving 2% across the board automatically and using the dept. chairs, 3% for colleges to fluctuate for merit with the overall program directors average for the college staying at 5%. This was approved to get by the Regents today. It will be similar for exempt and non documentation on exempt staff. Mr. Burke noted salary information had not evaluations and been sent by main campus HR office. Mr. Chappell noted make this had been debated by Faculty Council. They would recommendations prefer it be driven by and not handed down. Mr. Burke on merit. He asked noted this process was dictated by the ~overnin~ board Mr. Welch to take Administrative Council Meeting April 13, 2007 Page 1 of 5 through NMSU. We should expect 40% of raise automatic this to the other and 60 % fluctuated by merit. Colleges and departments division deans. are able to develop their own process to distribute merit. DACC has chosen to deviate %% amounts based on evaluations and recommendations. Mr. Burke added the process will require us to submit to the percent. Raises will not be as low as 2 % except in very unsatisfactory performance. Dr. Pifia asked if promotion and tenure was considered. Mr. Burke noted promotion and tenure was given outside of this process and is roughly 6 %. Mr. Burke also noted the college was asking for a faculty equity adjustment and we have asked for a flat, across the board amount for all faculty. Mr. Altamirano asked about the 2% or 3% to ERB. Mr. Burke noted the employer has given .75% more the last two years. The Legislature is providing funding for this and does not impact raises. Mr. Burke asked that the division deans and dept. chair/program directors get documentation on evaluations ready and to make recommendations. Mr. Burke asked Mr. Welch to take back to the division deans. 4 - Budget Mr. Burke referred to the handout of the 2007-2008 budget. Informational Item Update-Mr. This is basic budget information which will go forward to Burke our Advisory Board for approval. This is required before going to the Regents for their approval. Mr. Burke noted the college was taking less of an enrollment increase. The college will increase tuition and fees from $47 to $48 for in district. Tuition for concurrent enrollment will remain the same -- $24. Out of district was also increased by $1.00 -- $57 to $58. New faculty and staff positions approved are listed on the last page. The exempt positions funded by restricted funds will not be supported by I&G this year. We are hoping to fund those with a HUD grant. Mr. Burke sent the budget to the Budget Committee for input. There was isolated feedback. This is what the college will be sending forward. The Exec Team focused more on funding streams for faculty positions. This year we will start dialogue on those we did not fund or why decisions were made. Ms. Nickerson asked if these were full time positions. Mr. Burke answered yes. Mr. Chappell asked about pay raises for part time faculty. Mr. Burke noted a request which has not been made yet will ask for a 5 % raise for part time faculty. Mr. Burke noted he was still finalizing the budget and he will soon have the expenditures and revenues done. The budget worksheets will be sent out soon, hopefully by finals week. 6- Mr. Burke asked that we move on to announcements while Announcements the group waits for Ms. Diana Hidalgo from NMSU. /Other Dr. Lillibridge noted two announcements: 1. The accreditation process is close to completin~ the Informational Item Administrative Council Meeting April 13, 2007 Page 2 of 5 initial self study.

There has been nothing terribly huge was found. We are one year and two weeks out until our site visit. 2. There were six strategic priorities developed and are Informational Item on the IE web site. Six task forces will be developed to create action plans for each priority. You may be asked to help provide input. Mr. Quintela reminded the group about the Great Book If you have books Giveaway next week on April 19 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 to donate, please do p.m. in the Courtyard. If you books to donate, please do so. so. Mr. Paulman asked Mr. Burke's perspective on the 2% Informational Item drop in enrollment. Mr. Burke noted these were only projections and were very conservative. Mr. Burke expects enrollment to be down. The college is reaching critical mass, especially in General Studies.

They would like to engage students at the beginning. Also, they will look at strategies to use WorkKeys and the Associate of General Studies degree. The committee meets every Thursday at noon. The graduation rate for 2006 was 9.7% per Dr. Lillibridge. We want to make it better. The definition of a graduate is first time full-time degree (or certificate) seeking who graduates within three years. Not all programs require same time. The committee will develop strategies to improve graduation rates. Ms. Nickerson asked if GED transition will be part of this plan. Mr. Ledesma noted yes, it would be and that Ms. Cotton has started making good contributions. Mr. Pearse noted there were over 1000 pre- health students which include 600 pre-nursing students. Dr. Huerta noted we should look at offering different levels of certificates. Currently, the requirement range from 20 hours to 39 hours. For a point of comparison, Dr. Huerta added that the graduation rate for EI Paso Community College was 4% and Central New Mexico Community College was 7%. Dr. Lillibridge noted this was the first time in five years ours had gone up. Dr. Huerta noted we also needed to look at the CNA certificate.

Using the nurturing concept (quality center) to use information to change method of doing things. Colleges should do things differently every year. We need to identity constituents who need information like the general public and students. Also, identify internal constituents including those who make strategic decisions and managers. We need to find out what information is needed by our internal and external constituents. Mr. Juarez noted that SP#3 will be instrumental in SP#2. The committee will look at what are the processes, what is being developed (information), what is useful and meaningful, and what is the process to evaluate its usefulness. Mr. Juarez noted they will look at changing how we deliver information. They will have a three step action plan, which will be ongoing.

The biggest thing would be the community on our advisory committees. Also, continue to have community forums like the recent business forum and government forum. The committee will also look at economic and workforce partnerships, local independent school districts and dual credit, outreach to highs schools. The committee came up with four goals: 1. Develop shared goods and processes to improve communication with educational, community, business, industry, and governmental partners, both internally and externally.

Work is now being done on the master facilities plan which will be for the next four years. The survey done was looked at. The goal and action plan with the most responses from 2003 was looked at. What stuck out includes: 1. There is still the perception that we don't plan new space for new programs. As a college, disseminate information. 2. Eighty percent think facilities development is important or very important The college needs to validate: 1. rate of taxation -- $1 mill 2. update master facilities plan maybe to 2016, document refreshed 3. renovation (not specific yet) for HLC document- what we have accomplished Mr. Burke noted this was an on-going strategic process.
