VETERANS, AND OUR COLLEGE. [APPLAUSE]>>I REALLY NEED TO THANK YOU BECAUSE NOTHING
IS DONE IN A VACUUM. IT DID NOT MATTER HOW MUCH PASSION I HAVE
IF I DID NOT HAVE BACKING AND SUPPORT BY THE BOARD AND THE ADMINISTRATION HERE ON THE CAMPUS. NOT MUCH WOULD HAVE HAPPENED. I ALWAYS SAY TO PEOPLE IT TAKES A VILLAGE. THIS HAS BEEN MY VILLAGE FOR 32 YEARS. IT HAS BEEN MY WORK FAMILY. I FEEL HONORED AND PRIVILEGED TO HAVE WORKED
HERE. IT HAS BEEN A VERY HAPPY TIME FOR ME, BUT
IT IS TIME, SO THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. GOODBYE.>>GOODBYE. [APPLAUSE]>>SO WE HAVE A CERTIFICATE TO PRESENT TO
YOU IN RECOGNITION OF HER RETIREMENT. I HAVE TO SAY THAT LONG BEFORE I KNEW MUCH

ANYWHERE, AND IN MY WORK WITH THE BOARD, WELL, YOU HAVE TO GO TO HER AT PASADENA CITY COLLEGE,
SO YOU ARE TOPS. AND THANK YOU SO MUCH. HERE YOU ARE.>>THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE]>>DON’T GO AWAY. I THINK WE HAVE SOME MORE COMMENTS. WE WILL START WITH –>>
YOU ARE AN INSPIRATION. YOU CHANGED LIVES AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I HOPE THAT YOU KNOW THAT WHEN YOU LEAVE THIS

AND NATIONAL MEETINGS, NOT ONLY ARE YOU KNOWN TO THE STATE, BUT I HAVE HAD PEOPLE CALL FROM
ACROSS THE COUNTRY ASKING ABOUT OUR BOOKS TO BOOST PROGRAM, TALKED ABOUT YOU. YOUR NAME COMES UP AT A LOT OF OUR MEETINGS. EVEN THOUGH YOU WILL BE RETIRING AND CRAFTING
DURING YOUR RETIREMENT, I AM HAPPY TO SAY THAT I THINK YOU HAVE AGREED TO GET ON TO

AFTER THREE MINUTES COME UP, OK?>>OK. WHERE IS THE LIGHT AGAIN?>>IT IS TO YOUR RIGHT.>>I WILL GIVE YOU A SHOUT OUT IF YOU NEED
IT.>>OK. GOOD EVENING. ONCE AGAIN I AM ASKING THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES
TO HAVE THE COLLEGE FULLY RECOGNIZED FOR THIS SPEECH LIMIT PATHOLOGY PROGRAM. I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND THE BOARD THAT I AM
A DISABLED STUDENT WITH A 3.5 GPA AND JUST RECEIVED MY FIRST GRANT EVER. I WILL LOSE MY GRANT IN PLACE IN THE PROGRAM
BECAUSE NOW THE COLLEGE IS ONLY PARTIALLY RECOGNIZING MY RIGHTS. THEY ARE NOW REQUIRING ME TO FILL OUT AN APPLICATION
AND GO INTO LOTTERY WITH MANY STUDENTS FOR JUST 28 SLOTS IN THE PROGRAM. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT WILL I WILL EVER
BE PICKED FOR THE PROGRAM IN THIS LOTTERY. CATALOG RIGHTS ARE A CONTRACT BETWEEN THE
SCHOOL AND STUDENT. IF THE PROGRAM CHANGES REQUIREMENTS, A CONTINUOUS
STUDENT, WHICH I AM, HAS THE OPTION OF GRADUATING WITH THE OLD REQUIREMENTS IN PLACE AT THE
TIME OF INITIAL ENROLLMENT, OR CAN GRADUALLY GRADUATE WITH THE NEW REQUIREMENTS. AT THE TIME OF MY ENROLLMENT, THERE WAS NO
REQUIREMENT TO FILL OUT AN APPLICATION AND GO INTO ANY LOTTERY. I PICKED THIS PROGRAM BECAUSE IT WAS THE BEST
OPTION FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO SUPPORT MYSELF WITH JUST AN ASSOCIATES DEGREE. I LOVE HELPING CHILDREN, AND WITH THIS PROGRAM
I COULD DO THAT AND STILL MAKE A DECENT LIVING. THIS WHOLE SITUATION HAS BEEN VERY STRESSFUL
FOR ME. I HAVE WORKED AND STUDIED VERY HARD AT SCHOOL. I DON’T HAVE MUCH. I JUST TURNED 15. I DON’T HAVE CHILDREN OR A SIGNIFICANT OTHER
TO COUNT ON, BUT THE ONE THING I THOUGHT I COULD COUNT ON WAS SCHOOL. I HAVE LOST MY TRUST IN THE SCHOOL BUT HOPEFULLY
YOU, THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES, WILL DO THE RIGHT THING AND HELP ME GET THAT TRUST BACK. PLEASE HAVE THE SCHOOL FULLY RECOGNIZE MY
CATALOG RIGHTS SO THAT I CAN CONTINUE IN THIS PROGRAM WITHOUT INTERRUPTION AND WITHOUT LOSING
MY GRANT. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU, MS. ORTIZ.>>ANY OTHER PUBLIC COMMENT OR NOT? OK. WE MOVE ON TO AGENDA ITEM NUMBER SIX, CERTIFICATION
OF SIGNATURES. ARE THERE SOME SIGNATURES WE NEED TO VERIFY
OR HAS THAT ALREADY BEEN DONE?>>IT HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE.>>IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO COMMENT ON THIS, THERE
IS A PROPOSED CALENDAR THAT IS PART OF THIS AGENDA ITEM. IF ANYONE HAS QUESTIONS, COMMENTS, OR CHANGES?>>YES, I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST THE BOARD
CONSIDER MOVING THE NOVEMBER 20 DATE TO THE PRIOR WEEK, WHICH IS NOVEMBER 14. THE REASON IS NOVEMBER 21 IS THE START OF
THE CALIFORNIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE CONFERENCE IN RIVERSIDE, BUT THE 20TH, IT TURNS OUT IT
IS A DAY SET ASIDE FOR A NUMBER OF PRE-CONFERENCE ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING THE ACCT ENDORSEMENT
FOR CANDIDATES, AND WE ALSO WILL MISS THAT MEETING. IT IS THE DAY THAT THE TRIPLE C COMES TOGETHER
ON A NUMBER OF TASKFORCES. I ASKED HIM TO POST THAT SO ALL COLLEGES ARE
AWARE, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST THE BOARD CONSIDER MOVING THIS TO THE WEEK BEFORE. THAT PUTS THIS SQUARELY A MONTH BEFORE THE
OCTOBER MEETING, BEFORE THE DECEMBER MEETING, AND A MONTH AFTER THE OCTOBER MEETING.>>OK. HOLD ON ONE SECOND. LET’S TACKLE THESE ONE AT A TIME.>>MIND MAY BE RELATED.>>IF YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT THE NOVEMBER MEETING,
GO AHEAD.>>THE OCTOBER 9 MEETING IS THE EVENING OF
YOM KIPPUR. WE MIGHT HAVE TO RESCHEDULE THAT.>>OK.>>WHY DON’T WE TAKE NOTE OF OCTOBER 9 AS
THE START OF YOM KIPPUR. NOVEMBER 20 MEETING, THE REQUEST IS MADE TO
MOVE IT ONE WEEK EARLIER, NOVEMBER 13. LET’S DEAL WITH THAT ONE. IS THAT OK WITH
THE TRUSTEES? NOVEMBER 13 INSTEAD>>I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE THAT MOTION.>>I MOTION.>>MOTION AND SECOND.>>I’M SORRY, I’M GOING BACK AND FORTH –>>NOVEMBER 13.>>THE NOVEMBER 1 HE SUGGESTED.>>WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND AND I’LL
CALL THE VOTE. ALL IN FAVOR?>>AYE.>>I’M NOT SURE WHAT TO DO ABOUT THE OCTOBER
9 MEETING. LET’S SEE IF WE CAN FIND ANOTHER DAY.>>WE COULD MOVE IT TO TWO WEEKS FROM THEN. THAT WOULD BE OCTOBER 23RD, I BELIEVE. THE ONLY CONFLICT I KNOW ON THAT DATE IS I
BELIEVE THE FOUNDATION HAD PLANNED ONE OF THEIR HOMETOWN — AND IT IS THE ONE YOU ARRANGED.>>YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.>>SO I WOULD LIKE TO PROPOSE WE POSSIBLY
CONSIDER MAKING THE TUESDAY BEFORE YOM KIPPUR, THE EIGHT AND WE WOULD KEEP IT THE SAME WEEK. THE FOLLOWING WEEK WOULDN’T WORK BECAUSE IT
IS THE START OF THE ACCT NATIONAL CONFERENCE.>>I AM NOT UP ON MY JUDAISM, BUT I HAVE A
FEELING SUNDOWN ON TUESDAY IS THE BEGINNING OF THE HOLIDAY.>>I AM NOT UP ON MY JUDAISM, EITHER.>>IN THAT REGARD, SUNDOWN ON THE NIGHT, YOU
ARE OK.>>YOU’D HAVE TO BREAK THE FAST.>>IT IS A MAJOR HOLIDAY.>>OCTOBER 15?>>WHAT ABOUT THE 16TH?>>THE 16TH IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE ACCT CONFERENCE. IT COULD BE THE 15TH. I WOULD BE OPEN TO THE 15TH.>>TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15. I’M GOOD.>>I MOVE YOU THE DATE FROM OCTOBER 16 TO
OCTOBER 15.>>IT WOULD BE OCTOBER 9 TO OCTOBER 15.>>THE PROPOSED DATE IS OCTOBER 9 WEDNESDAY
AND WE WOULD MOVE IT TO TUESDAY THE 15TH.>>I STAND CORRECTED.>>THAT IS A MOTION. DO WE HAVE A SECOND?>>A SECOND.>>ALL IN FAVOR?>>AYE.>>OK. ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS
ABOUT THE PROPOSED CALENDAR AND IF NOT, WE WILL SET THIS CALENDAR FOR THE UPCOMING FISCAL
YEAR AND AS WE GO ALONG IF OTHER CHANGES NEED TO BE CONSIDERED, WE WOULD DO THAT AS WE GO. . OK. WE ARE GOING TO MOVE ONTO AGENDA ITEM EIGHT,
APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES AND THIS IS THE MINUTES FROM OUR LAST MEETING WHICH WAS MEETING NUMBER
16, MAY 15 OF LAST MONTH.>>MOTION AND SECOND, ALL IN FAVOR? AYE.>>I ABSTAIN. I WAS ABSENT.>>ABSTENTION NOTED. MOTION CARRIES AND WE ARE ONTO AGENDA ITEM
NUMBER NINE, WHICH IS THE BOARD COMMITTEES. SO THESE WOULD BE OUR BOARD SUBCOMMITTEES
ON ANY MEETINGS. TRUSTEE MARTIN?>>I CAN MAKE A BRIEF REPORT AND I CAN BE
BRIEF BECAUSE THE TENTATIVE BUDGET WE DISCUSSED IS ON AGENDA SO YOU ALL HERE THE CRUX OF IT. SOME THINGS YOU MAY NOT HEAR THAT I WANT YOU
TO KNOW. WE DID A REPORT ON OUR TRUST INVESTMENT THAT
WE HAD SET ASIDE FOR OUR FUTURE OBLIGATIONS AND I THOUGHT THAT WAS HELPFUL AND I THINK
THE FULL BOARD WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WE ARE TRYING TO MONITOR THAT. WE HAD A LONG DISCUSSION IN THE COMMITTEE
WHICH WE WILL NOT HAVE TONIGHT ON WHAT I CALL THE “HOW THEY MAKE THE SAUSAGE” OF DECIDING
WHICH CLASSES ARE OFFERED TO MEET THE DEMAND STUDENTS WANT FOR CLASSES. IT WAS A RATHER DETAILED EXPLANATION THAT
GIVES ME TREMENDOUS APPRECIATION TO THE STAFF. MANY WHO ARE TRYING TO WORK ON ON MAY FUTURE
WE ARE MAXIMIZING THAT BECAUSE THE CENTER OF OUR REVENUE IS GETTING THAT EQUATION RIGHT
AND I WOULD LIKE TO AND WILL SUGGEST LATER IN THE MEETING ON FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS THAT
WE SCHEDULE THAT AT A FUTURE BOARD MEETING SO THE FULL BOARD CAN APPRECIATE WHAT THE
COMMITTEE NOW VITIATE, THE WORK WE GO THROUGH — APPRECIATES, THE WORK WE GO THROUGH TO
PROVIDE THE RIGHT OFFERINGS. SOMETHING THAT MAY NOT COME UP TONIGHT IN
THE SHORTER REVISED PRESENTATION THAT IS NOW POST-BUDGET, BECAUSE OUR MEETING WAS LAST
WEEK, IS THAT THERE WAS A RECOMMENDATION IN THE ORIGINAL BUDGET FROM THE STATE LEGISLATURE
TO ONLY FUND HOME DISTRICTS FOR STUDENTS WHO ATTEND COMMUNITY COLLEGES. WHEN I FIRST SAW THAT IN THE NOTES, I REALIZED
THAT WOULD BE DEVASTATING NOT ONLY TO THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE SYSTEM AT LARGE WHERE WE
HAVE A GENERAL COME KUMBAYA, BUT CATACLYSMIC IN WHAT IT WOULD DO FOR FUNDING AT PCC BECAUSE
WE ARE A DESIRED CAMPUS THAT PEOPLE TRAVEL TO AND I HAVE SINCE LEARNED FROM THE ADMINISTRATION
AND ERIC AT THAT IS NO LONGER CONSIDERED. AM I EVER SO GRATEFUL ABOUT THAT, SO WE WILL
PROBABLY NOT HEAR MORE ABOUT THAT TONIGHT AND BOY, ARE WE GLAD. AT THAT POINT, THE ONLY OTHER THING I WANT
TO HIGHLIGHT IS, IT WAS OBVIOUS THERE WERE, ESPECIALLY A WEEK AGO WHEN WE HAD THE MEETING
BEFORE THE FINAL BUDGET MORE OR LESS GOT LOCKED IN PLACE, THERE WAS A LOT OF SHIFTING SAND
GOING ON UNDERNEATH AND I THOUGHT THAT FROM THE LOG MEETING WE HAD, A LOT OF COMPLIMENTS
GO TO DR. BUSH WHO JUST STEPPED IN . I REALLY APPRECIATE
THE TEAM AND WHAT THEY DID. THEY SEEM VERY PREPARED FOR THE MANY CONTINGENCIES
THAT COULD COME OUR WAY. I THINK THE REST OF IT — AND MAYBE SOME OF
THE OTHER MEMBERS — I WANT TO SEND OUT APPRECIATION TO THOSE WHO ATTENDED THE MEETING, ESPECIALLY
TO THE FA LEADERSHIP THAT ATTENDED. IT WAS NICE TO HAVE THEM WITH US, HEARING
THE SAME INFORMATION AND TALKING THROUGH SOME OF THAT TOGETHER BECAUSE WE ARE ALL IN THIS
TOGETHER AND I APPRECIATE THEM TAKING THE EFFORT TO COME AND WANT TO PUBLICLY THANK
THEM FOR BEING THERE. MAYBE MY COLLEAGUES HAVE MORE TO ADD BUT THE
NITTY-GRITTY, WE ARE GOING TO COVER LATE IN THE MEETING. YOU DON’T NEED TO HEAR IT TWICE.>>THERE IS ONE THING I WOULD LIKE TO COMMEND
OUR PRESIDENT. IT IS A VERY GOOD STRATEGY TO HAVE FACULTY
AND DIFFERENT COMPONENTS FROM THE COLLEGE COMMUNITY IN THOSE MEETINGS BECAUSE WHEN THE
BOARD MAKES DECISIONS OR WHEN THE PRESIDENT MAKES DECISIONS, IF THEY ARE FOLLOWING THE
PROCESS, IT MAKES MORE SENSE AND I THINK IT IS A GOOD THING SO I’LL HAVE TO CONGRATULATE
YOU ON THAT ONE.>>I WOULD JUST ADD MY APPRECIATION FOR THAT
AND THE F.A. NOT ONLY SHOWED UP AND ATTENDED, BUT THEY
ASKED POINTED, DETAILED QUESTIONS SO THEY ARE VERY MUCH ON TOP OF THESE ISSUES AND WE
ARE PLEASED TO HAVE BEEN JOIN US IN THE MEETING. JOHN, THANK YOU FOR THAT REPORT AND WE DON’T
HAVE ANY OTHER — LINDA, I’M SORRY. GO AHEAD.>>I DON’T HAVE A REPORT, BUT I DO WANT TO
SAY ON THE EDGES LATE OF ADVOCACY — AND I KNOW WE ARE GOING TO GO THROUGH A REORGANIZATION,
BUT THERE — THE BUDGET ISSUES ARE MOVING VERY QUICKLY. THE LEAGUE HAS NOW TAKEN IT ON ITS SELF TO
START HAVING MONTHLY LEGISLATIVE WEBIN ARS FOR ANYONE INTERESTED AND THEY ARE HAVING
SPECIAL WEBINARS FOR ANYONE OF THE CAUCUS LEAGUE, HONING IN ON BILLS OF PARTICULAR INTEREST
TO THEM. I KNOW IT HAS BEEN PROPOSED THAT ALL OF THE
COMMITTEES HAVE SET MEETINGS FROM HERE ON OUT SO I WOULD LIKE TO RECOMMEND THAT AS SOON
AS WE CAN COME UP WITH THOSE MEETINGS, WE CAN DO THAT AND PERHAPS MAYBE LEGISLATIVE
NEEDS TO MEET A LITTLE MORE FREQUENTLY WHILE THESE ARE GOING AT LIGHTNING SPEED.>>CAN I RESPOND?>>PLEASE.>>WE HAD A CONVERSATION WHEN WE WERE LOOKING
AT THE CALENDAR AND WE TALKED ABOUT NEEDING TO INCREASE THE FREQUENCY OF MEETINGS, SET
THOSE MEETINGS OUT SO — POOR MARY WASN’T HAVING TO DO, WHO CAN BE HERE? THERE ARE A LOT OF ISSUES WE NEED TO DISCUSS
AND THOSE COMMITTEE MEETINGS ARE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO DO THAT AND WE ALSO TALKED ABOUT,
ESPECIALLY AS WE ARE MOVING TOWARD WITH AN FMT, AND ARE ABOUT TO HAVE A BUILDING UNDER
CONSTRUCTION AND LOOKING AT POTENTIALLY GOING FOR A BOND, WE NEED TO START A BOARD SUBCOMMITTEE
ON FACILITIES BECAUSE THERE ARE GOING TO BE SOME DECISIONS, SOME PHILOSOPHICAL THINGS
THE BOARD NEEDS TO TALK ABOUT IN TERMS OF HOW TO GO FORWARD AND A BOARD SUBCOMMITTEE
IS THE PLACE TO HAVE THOSE INITIAL DISCUSSIONS BEFORE MAKING RECOMMENDATIONS, SO WE DEFINITELY
HAD LOOKED AT — WE NEED A LEDGE COMMITTEE MEETING IN JANUARY BEFORE WE START DOING THOSE
VISITS BUT ABSOLUTELY, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE IN SEPTEMBER, THE GOVERNOR WILL HAVE A WHOLE
BUNCH OF BILLS SITTING ON HIS DESK AND WE WILL WANT TO MAKE SURE WE ARE OUT IN FRONT
OF THE OSE.>>WHAT THE PLAN IS, WE WILL ESTABLISH THE
BOARD SUBCOMMITTEE MEMBERSHIP AND WE WILL SOLICIT THE MEMBERSHIP OF EACH SUBCOMMITTEE
FOR PROBABLY QUARTERLY IF NEEDED, MEETINGS, AND GET THEM TO AGREE ON DATES THAT WILL WORK
FOR THE SUBCOMMITTEE. WE ARE NOT ANNOUNCING THOSE STATES UNTIL WE
FORMED THOSE SUBCOMMITTEES. OK. WE WILL NOW MOVE ON TO ITEM D, CONSENT ITEMS,
STUDENTS. DO I HAVE A MOTION?>>MOTION.>>SECOND.>>ALL IN FAVOR?>>AYE.>>WE WILL MOVE ON TO CONSENT ITEM E, WHICH
IS INSTRUCTION. ALL IN FAVOR?>>AYE.>>WE ARE NOW GOING TO MOVE ON TO CONSENT
ITEMS THAT FOR BUSINESS. DO I HEAR A MOTION?>>EXCUSE ME, I WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THE
COMMUNITY OUTREACH ACTIVITIES.>>WOULD YOU LIKE TO TAKE AN ITEM AND TAKE
IT OFF THE CONSENT CALENDAR FOR DISCUSSION?>>ITEM TWO.>>WE WILL REMOVE ITEM TWO FROM THE CONSENT
CALENDAR AND WE WILL VOTE ON EVERYTHING ELSE AND THEN DISCUSS ITEM TWO. MOTION — DWIGHT. HEAR A MOTION TO APPROVE CONSENT ITEMS?>>I MOVE APPROVAL.>>ALL IN FAVOR?>>AYE.>>WE HAVE APPROVED EVERYTHING EXCEPT ITEM
NUMBER TWO.>>ONE OF THE QUESTIONS I ASKED THE PRESIDENT
TO PROVIDE US WITH SOME DETAILS ABOUT THE COMMUNITY OUTREACH PLAN AND ACTIVITIES, AND
IT WAS GREAT TO SEE THAT THERE IS A THOROUGH, COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND WHEN I LOOKED AT THE
BUDGET FOR THE COMMUNITY OUTREACH TO SEEK $5,000, WHAT CAME TO MY MIND WAS TO ATTAIN
ALL THE GOALS OF WHAT COMMUNITY OUTREACH MAY NEED TO DO, WHETHER THE $5,000 IS GOING TO
BE ENOUGH SO THAT IS REALLY MY QUESTION IN TERMS OF HAVING A LITTLE MORE OF A DISCUSSION
ABOUT THE TYPE OF COMMUNITY OUTREACH BENCHMARKS THAT WE WANT TO LOOK AT AND THE TYPE OF GOALS
THAT WE WANT TO REACH FOR COMMUNITY OUTREACH.>>I THINK I’LL HAVE DR. CYNTHIA RESPOND TO THAT.>>TRANSFER AND OUTREACH DEPARTMENT IS LED
BY OUR DIRECTOR ALEXANDER. SHE DOESN’T AMAZING JOB WORKING WITH A VERY
SMALL BUDGET TO ENSURE WE ARE MEETING COMMUNITY OUTREACH NEEDS, AS WELL AS ENGAGING WITH OUR
HIGH SCHOOL PARTNERS. YOU ARE RIGHT IN THAT WE DO NEED TO REVISIT
THE RESOURCES THAT WE ARE DEDICATING TO THAT EFFORT. I WILL SAY THAT WE HAVE PROVIDED RESOURCES
THROUGH SSSP AND STUDENT EQUITY TO BOLSTER THE BUDGET THAT SUPPORTS THESE ACTIVITIES.>>THANK YOU.>>DO WE HAVE A MOTION ON ITEM NUMBER TWO?>>[MOTION AND SECOND]>>ALL IN FAVOR?>>AYE.>>MOTION CARRIES. WE ARE MOVING ON TO ITEM NUMBER G. THIS IS
CONSENT ITEMS, PERSONNEL. TRUSTEE MARTIN?>>I REQUEST A SEPARATE VOTE ON G2.>>WE WILL REMOVE G2 FROM THE CONSENT CALENDAR
AND VOTE ON THE REMAINING ITEMS AND CIRCLE BACK TO ITEM NUMBER TWO.>>VOTE TO APPROVE.>>MOVED AND SECONDED. ALL IN FAVOR?>>AYE.>>ITEM G IS APPROVED EXCEPT FOR ITEM NUMBER
TWO AND TRUSTEE MARTIN, YOU ARE UP.>>I DON’T NEED TO DISCUSS IT, I JUST NEED
A SEPARATE VOTE.>>OK. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A SECOND VOTE ON ITEM
NUMBER G2, WHICH WAS REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT CALENDAR AND WE HAVE MOVED AND SECONDED, CORRECT?>>OBVIOUSLY, I THINK ONCE IT IS APPROVED,
THERE IS A LOT OF PHENOMENAL PCC PEOPLE HERE WHO ARE LEAVING US FROM A LOT OF YEARS AND
I’M SURE THERE WILL BE SOME COMMENTS, BUT WE WILL VOTE ON IT FIRST.>>HAVE WE HAD A MOTION ON THIS YET? DO WE HAVE A SECOND?>>I’LL SECOND.>>ALL IN FAVOR OF ITEM TWO?>>AYE.>>MOTION CARRIES.>>I’M ABSTAINING.>>ONE ABSTENTION NOTED FOR TRUSTEE MARTIN. DID YOU HAVE ANY COMMENTS OR IS THAT IT?>>THAT IS IT OTHER THAN WHILE I AM LOOKING
AT NAMES THAT HAVE BEEN A PART OF THIS FOR OBVIOUSLY , THAT HE WAS HERE, BUT RICHARD,
BOB, KEITH, KRISTIN, AND WAYNE. REGINA COOPER. THESE HAVE BEEN SOME REAL PCC NAMES FOR SOME
TIME.>>IT IS AMAZING THE LONG TENURES.>>AND A LOT OF NEW GREAT ONES COMING IN,
BUT WE REALLY WANT TO APPRECIATE THOSE, MANY OF WHOM HAVE 25, 28 YEARS OF SERVICE. 30 YEARS OF SERVICE, 29 YEARS OF SERVICE. IT IS REALLY SPECIAL. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU, TRUSTEE MARTIN. WE WILL MOVE ONTO ITEM H, ACTION ITEMS RECOMMENDED
FOR BOARD APPROVAL AND WE WILL START WITH H ONE, WHICH IS A PUBLIC HEARING AND ADOPTION
OF THE FISCAL YEAR 2019 TO 2020 TENTATIVE BUDGET.>>ALL RIGHT, AND WE’LL HAVE A PRESENTATION
FROM DR. MICHAEL.>>THANK YOU. FIRST, I’D LIKE TO THANK THE FISCAL STAFF. THEY HAVE DONE A FANTASTIC JOB. THEY DID ALL THE WORK. I JUST WALKED IN AT THE END OF IT. I WOULD LIKE TO REVIEW A LITTLE BIT WHY WE
ARE DOING A TENTATIVE BUDGET. THE STATE HAS THEIR BUDGET CALENDAR AND THE
DISTRICT HAS OUR BUDGET CALENDAR AND THEY DON’T REALLY SYNC. OUR FISCAL YEAR ENDS JUNE 30 AND IF WE DON’T
HAVE A TENTATIVE BUDGET IN PLACE, WE CANNOT P ARE EMPLOYEES IN OUR BILLS. WE DO A TWO-STEP PROCESS IN OUR BILLS LIKE
MANY STATE AGENCIES AND WE HAVE A TENTATIVE BUDGET AND OUR ADOPTED BUDGET, WHICH WILL
BE SOMETIME BETWEEN AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER DO 45 DAYS AFTER THE GOVERNOR SIGNED THE BUDGET
OFFICE. THAT IS WHY THE EXERCISE WE ARE GOING THROUGH
TONIGHT. OUR TENTATIVE BUDGET IS BASED ON THE REVISED
AND AS TRUSTEE MARTIN HAS SHARED, MANY ASSUMPTIONS WE BUILT OUR BUDGET ON HAVE CHANGED. THE ME REVISED MAINTAINS THE GOVERNOR’S COMMITMENT
TO REDUCING THE STATE DEBT. LIABILITIES, IT HAS TWO SEPARATE RESERVES. IT DEPOSITS $1.2 BILLION INTO THE RAINY DAY
FUND FOR THE WHOLE STATE BUDGET AND THEN IT HAS FOR THE FIRST TIME 389 MILLION INTO THE
PROP 98 FOR SCHOOL STABILIZATION ACCOUNT. THOSE WERE TWO DIFFERENT FUNDS THE VOTERS
SET UP WITH THE LEADERSHIP OF GOVERNOR BROWN SO BOTH HAVE DEPOSITS IN THEM. COMMUNITY COLLEGES ARE FAIRLY UNCHANGED DURING
THE MAY REVISE. PROP 98 IS SLIGHTLY HIGHER. THERE IS LOWER PROPERTY TAX. IT PROVIDES FOR A SLIGHTLY LOWER :. STATUTORY
IS 3.6. IT USES THE PRIOR YEAR’S FUNDING RATE ADJUSTED. ONE OF THE THINGS IN THE MAIN REVISED THAT
HAS CHANGED SLIGHTLY WITH THE CONFERENCE COMMITTEE IS IT CAP THE YEAR-TO-YEAR GROWTH OF A DISTRICT,
STUDENT SUCCESS ALLOCATION TO 10%. I’LL GO THROUGH THE CONFERENCE COMMITTEE STUFF
IN A MINUTE. IT HAD THAT — MR. MARTIN SHARED THAT LANGUAGE OF THE TRANSFER
BEING ATTRIBUTED TO THE HOME DISTRICT RATHER THAN WHERE THE STUDENT ACTUALLY ATTENDED AND
IT EXTENDED THE HOLD HARMLESS TILL 2122, WHICH DOESN’T REALLY IMPACT PASADENA CITY COLLEGE
BECAUSE OF OUR STUDENT SUCCESS MATRIX. WE’RE ABOVE THE LEVEL. IT EXPANDS THE COLLEGE PROMISE THROUGH THE
SECOND YEAR AND HAS CAL GRANT EXPANSION AND HAS RELIEF FOR PENSION COSTS. WHAT IS SO SIGNIFICANT ABOUT THIS IS IT IS
OUTSIDE PROP 98. THE FIRST GOVERNOR WHO HAS NOT VIEWED PROP
98 AS THE CEILING AND RECOGNIZES THE MINIMUM GUARANTEE. IT HAS A LONGITUDINAL DATA SYSTEM. AFTER THE GOVERNOR’S MAY REVISE, THE LEGISLATURE,
THE ASSEMBLY AND SENATE WORK ON DIFFERENT VERSIONS AND THEY USED TO CALL IT THE BIG
FIVE OR THE CONFERENCE COMMITTEE GETS TOGETHER AND COME UP WITH A BUDGET COMPROMISE. THEN THE TWO HOUSES PASS THOSE LAWS AND WE
SEND IT TO THE GOVERNOR FOR SIGNATURE. THEY APPROVED THE PROPOSITION 98 STABILIZATION
ACCOUNT. THEY CLARIFIED LANGUAGE IN THE STUDENT CENTER
FUNDING FORMULA, THEY CAPPED THE STUDENT SUCCESS ALLOCATION FOR THE STATE AT 10%, SO WE CAN
EXCEED OUR 10% AR4C C. 19 TRANSFERS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE PUBLIC INFORMATION AND NO ONE KNOWS
WHAT THE DETAILS OF THAT MEANS JUST YET. THEY ARE GOING TO IMPLEMENT A THREE-YOU’RE
ROLLING AVERAGE OF THE SUCCESS MATRIX AND WE HAVE TO LOOK AT THAT AND IMPLEMENT AN UNDUE
CLEMENTE TO COUNT FOR THE HYPE — UNDUPLICATED AMOUNT EARNED. EVERYONE BELIEVED THAT WOULD HAPPEN. THEY DECIDED — DIVIDED PENSION RELIEF, SO
WE ARE NOT AVOIDING AS MUCH COST INCREASE ON TELL CAL, BUT IT WILL BE PRETTY MUCH A
WASH. 5 MILLION INCREASE TO VETERAN RESOURCE CENTERS
AND FUNDING FOR STUDENT HUNGER AND BASIC NEEDS. THERE IS NO ADDITIONAL FULL-TIME OR PART-TIME
FACULTY FUNDING. WE WERE ADVOCATING STRONGLY FOR THOSE. IT INCLUDES AN 80% FUNDING FOR THE SARAFIAN
BUILDING, WHICH WAS HARD FOUGHT. WE GOT OUR FUNDING THERE. THERE IS ADDITIONAL APPORTIONMENT SHORTFALLS. THEY ARE ESTIMATING THERE IS ENOUGH REVENUE
FOR 2018, 2019 BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO STILL FEEL IT WILL BE DEFICITED. IT WOULD BE ABOUT A $6 MILLION INCREASE TO
THE DISTRICT IF IT WASN’T DEFICITED. WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT. LET’S SEE. THAT’S JUST ALL ABOUT THE DEFICIT. THIS IS A CHART ON APPORTIONMENT SHORTFALLS
WERE THEY SAID IT WOULD BE DOWN, IT WILL BE UP. WE LITERALLY WON’T KNOW UNTIL THE END OF THE
YEAR AFTER THE GOVERNOR SIGNS THE BUDGET WHETHER WE ARE GOING TO GET A DEFICIT OR NOT. THE STUDENT SUCCESS COMPLETION GRANT ADJUST
FOR REVISED ESTIMATE. THERE IS FINANCIAL AID DECREASES BECAUSE OF
ONE-TIME ADJUSTMENTS. THE CALIFORNIA PROMISE IS AN INCREASE FOR
EXPANSION OF A SECOND HERE AND WE WILL HAVE DEFERRED MAINTENANCE FROM ONE TIME. THERE IS ALSO A DECREASE IN PART-TIME FACULTY
HOURS BECAUSE OF THE RENEWAL AND OUR CONSTRUCTION. THE MAY REVISE INCLUDED IT AND IT WAS PUTTING. PENSION COMPENSATION , ALWAYS NEEDS TO BE
A CAUTION . OUR AGING INFRASTRUCTURE AND OUR ABILITY TO
PAY FOR IT. REVENUE SHORTFALLS IS ALWAYS A CHALLENGE AND
THE CHANGING OF THE FUNDING FORMULA. IT CONTINUES TO CHANGE MIDSTREAM ON US SO
WE CONTINUE TO STRUGGLE WITH THAT AND THE DEMOGRAPHIC TRENDS IN TRADITIONAL COLLEGE-AGE
STUDENTS. OUR GENERAL FUND IS 168 MILLION, 659,000 AND
SO IS OUR EXPENSIVE — $168,659,000. WE HAVE A PORTION INCREASES OF $2 MILLION. HAVE A REDUCTION OF $2 MILLION AND PART-TIME
FACULTY REVENUE FOR $1 MILLION DECREASED IN NEXT YEAR’S BUDGET. WE HAVE INCREASES IN OUR SALARY AND BENEFIT
OBLIGATIONS. THIS IS EITHER ALREADY NEGOTIATED INCREASES
FOR STEP AND COLUMN AS WELL AS STATUTORY BENEFITS. IT DOES NOT INCLUDE REVENUES FOR ANY NEGOTIATIONS. WE DECREASED OUR GENERAL OPERATING EXPENSES
BY 1.7 COMEDY USED THE TRANSFER FUNDS BY 2.9 FOR THEIR PROJECTED REDUCTION AND EXPENDITURES
OF $1 MILLION. THIS OUTLINES OUR TRANSFERS OF $2.2 MILLION
OUT OF THE GENERAL FUND END OF THE VARIOUS FUNDS THAT THEY GO TO. THIS HARD TO READ SLIDE TALKS ABOUT SOME OF
THOSE TRANSFERS. YOU ALSO SEE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS ON THEIR. THAT IS TO RECOGNIZE THE TRANSFER OF THE BOOKSTORE
MONEY THAT HAS TO BE RECEIVED IN THE GENERAL FUND AND TRANSFERRED OVER. OK, IS THERE ANY QUESTIONS?>>WILL START ON THE RIGHT.>>THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION. ALTHOUGH WE ARE ABOVE THE LIMIT FOR THEAT
AND IT HAS BEEN EXTENDED AN ADDITIONAL YEAR. THERE WAS STRONG SENTIMENT FOR EXTENDING IT
TO SEVEN YEARS. EVEN THOUGH WE ARE HELD HARMLESS AND ABOVE
THE LIMIT, WE ARE OUT OF DANGER FOR AT LEAST THIS YEAR, IS THERE ANY POTENTIAL OF US INCURRING
ANY IMPACTS IN THE FUTURE?>>THERE’S ALWAYS THE ABILITY TO NOT DO AS
WELL AS WE ARE DOING. IT IS NOT THE INTENTION THAT WE WILL EVER
GO THERE, BUT TRADITIONALLY, PASADENA CITY COLLEGE HAS HAD STRONG STUDENT SUCCESS AND
OUR DEMOGRAPHICS, THE FUNDING MODEL RECOGNIZES THE HIGHER COST OF EDUCATING FIRST-GENERATION
STUDENTS, ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS, SO THAT IS IN OUR FAVOR THAT WE ARE RECEIVING
THOSE EXTRA FUNDS. BUT THE EXTENSION OF THE GUARANTEE, AND I
UNDERSTAND IT FOR A SYSTEMWIDE, THAT IT IS A GOOD THING FOR THE STATE BUT WHAT THE GUARANTEE
DID FOR US THIS YEAR, BECAUSE THEY HAD TO GUARANTEE AND THEY HAD A DEFICIT. THEY TOOK IT ALL OUT OF STUDENT SUCCESS, SO
THE DISTRICTS THAT WERE SUCCEEDING WITH HER STUDENTS BO RE THE DEFICIT WHILE THOSE THAT
WEREN’T WERE NOT DEFICITED. IN PAST YEARS, THEY WOULD DEFICIT ACROSS ALL
THE FUNDING SOURCES BUT THE WAY THE LAW IS WRITTEN ON THE MINIMUM GUARANTEE, THE HOLD
HARMLESS, THEY DID NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE DEFICIT.>>CAN I ADD TO PART OF THE ISSUE SOCIAL WAS
THE WAY HOLD HARMLESS WAS AT SETTING IT AT WHATEVER YOUR TOTAL REVENUE WAS IN 2017-2018. IT DIDN’T ACCOUNT FOR THE FACT THAT THERE
WERE DISTRICTS ACROSS THE STATE THAT WERE IN A HOLD HARMLESS YEAR. IN 2017-2018. THEIR TOTAL COMPUTATIONAL REVENUE WAS BASED
ON 2016-2017 AND IN SOME CASES, THEIR ENROLLMENTS WERE GOING DOWN. THE STATE IN CALCULATING 2017-2018 FOR 2018-2019
WAS ASSUMING A BUNCH OF FEES THAT NEVER GOT COLLECTED BECAUSE THE ENROLLMENT WASN’T THERE. SO THAT WAS PART OF THE REASON WHY THERE WAS
A GAP IN FUNDING AND WHITE DISTRICTS LIKE OURS THAT DID MEET THE STUDENT SUCCESS METRICS
AND THEN SOME WERE THE ONES WHO PAID THE PRICE FOR IT. I THINK THE BIGGER ISSUE, ESPECIALLY WITH
A SEVEN-YEAR HOLD HARMLESS, WHICH A LOT OF CEOS ARE IN FAVOR OF FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS,
ONE OF THE BIGGEST ISSUES ON THAT IS IT WOULD BE GREAT TO HAVE SEVEN YEARS BUT WE ALSO NEED
TO HAVE A STEP DOWN APPROACH BECAUSE THE CLIFF COULD HAPPEN AFTER THREE YEARS, AFTER FOUR
YEARS, OR AFTER SEVEN YEARS AND I THINK THAT IS ANOTHER COMPONENT THAT NEEDS TO BE RESOLVED.>>SO THAT TIES INTO ANOTHER QUESTION I HAD. AS WE LOOK AT THE CHANGE IN OUR OWN DEMOGRAPHICS
OF DECLINING ROLAND — ENROLLMENT OF TRADITIONAL AGE STUDENTS COME I WOULD LIKE TO RECOMMEND
WE HAD A CONVERSATION ABOUT THE STRATEGY FOR HOW WE WILL MAINTAIN, SUSTAIN OURSELVES AND
OUR ENROLLMENT STRATEGY AS WE HAVE DECLINING POPULATION AND ALSO HOW THAT WOULD AFFECT
THE WHOLE HARMLESS. I ALSO WANT TO SAY THERE IS A LOT OF DISCUSSION
AT THE STATE LEVEL ON THE METRICS AND FUNDING FORMULA SO WHILE I’M SURE — I KNOW IT CREATES
A LOT OF ANGST THAT IS A MOVING TARGET. I THINK IT IS A GOOD THING BECAUSE I REMEMBER
WHEN THEY FIRST CAME OUT WITH THOSE STACKS AND STATS AND EVERYONE REALLY HAD HEARTBURN
WHEN WE WERE TOLD THERE WOULD BE NO CHANGES NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAID THE IMPACT WAS AND
NOW WE ARE LOOKING AT THE IMPACT. I THINK IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET SOME INPUT
TO MAKE THESE CHANGES AND AS YOU KNOW, THOSE TASK FORCES ARE MOVING FORWARD. AS I HAVE WORKED ON THE METRICS, I BECAME
AWARE — I DIDN’T REALIZE THERE WAS SUCH A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN — THERE WERE GAPS BETWEEN
THE VISION FOR SUCCESS GOALS VERSUS WHAT THE FUNDING FORMULA GOALS ARE AND WHEN WE TALKED
ABOUT THE TRANSFERS AND WHICH COLLEGES, TRANSFERS WERE GOING TO BE ACCEPTED, WE FOUND THERE
IS A DIFFERENCE. IT WOULD BE HELPFUL FOR THE BOARD TO KNOW
WHAT YOU SEE ARE THE DIFFERENCES AND AT THE STATE LEVEL, WHAT WE CAN DO TO REALLY HELP
MOVE THAT ALONG AND THAT WOULD HELP OUR STUDENTS.>>I THINK PART OF THAT TOO IS THAT WITH CHANGING
DEMOGRAPHICS, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE AGE OF OUR STUDENTS AS THE AVERAGE AGE
GOES UP BECAUSE OUR STUDENT POPULATION GOES DOWN, ONE OF THE THINGS WE WILL NEED TO DO
IS LOOK AT THE IMPACT AND THE ROLE OF PART-TIME STUDENTS BECAUSE SO MUCH OF THE STRUCTURE
AT THE STATE LEVEL DOWN TO THE COMMUNITY COLLEGES ASSUMES THE BENEFITS OF THE FULL-TIME AND
THERE’S NO QUESTION THAT BEING FULL-TIME IS GREAT. THE PROBLEM IS, THAT IS NOT A REALITY FOR
A LOT OF STUDENT SO HOW WE BUILD THAT INTO A FUNDING FORMULA, HOW WE BUILD THAT INTO
THE WAY WE STRUCTURE OUR SUCCESS DEFINITION, I’M NOT SURE. I THINK WE NEED TO LOOK AT THAT BUT IF YOU
ASK ME, THAT WILL BECOME THE ONE PLACE WE REALLY NEED TO FOCUS ON BECAUSE RIGHT NOW,
IF IT IS NOT 12 UNITS, WHICH IS NOT REALLY FULL-TIME BECAUSE YOU CAN’T FINISH HER PROGRAM
IN TWO YEARS IN PRIMARY TERMS BASED ON 12 UNITS, SO THAT IS A MINIMUM 12 UNITS VERSUS
WHAT YOU WOULD REALLY NEED TO FINISH IN TWO YEARS, WHICH IS 15 UNITS. WE DON’T EVEN HAVE THAT PIECE CORRECT AND
AN FDF IS CALCULATED ON 15 INSTEAD OF 12. WE NEED MORE THAN ONE HUMAN BEING IN OUR STATE
DEFINITION TO MAKE UP THE OTHER PIECE.>>I AM ONE OF THOSE TRUSTEES WHO IS ALSO
— HAS ALSO SAID THE SAME THING. I THINK WE ARE MOVING AWAY FROM THAT FULL-TIME
STUDENT AND MARKING THAT HAS THE SUCCESS, USING THAT AS THE SUCCESS METRIC. WE NEED TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE REALITY THAT WE
ARE — WE HAVE A CHANGING DEMOGRAPHIC. WE HAVE MORE STUDENTS WHO ARE RETURNING. THEY HAVE FAMILIES AND THEY ARE WORKING AND
THEY CANNOT DO A FULL TIME, SO THAT TIES INTO MY OTHER QUESTION, AND THAT IS REGARDING PROMISES. NOW THAT WE HAVE TWO-YOUR CALIFORNIA PROMISES
PINNED ON THE FULL-TIME STUDENT, WE ALSO HAVE OUR FOUNDATION THAT IS FUNDING PROMISE. I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST A COUPLE OF THINGS. ONE, WE LOOK AT WHAT THE DATA OF SUCCESS,
WHAT SUCCESS METRICS LOOK LIKE FOR THE STUDENTS WHO ARE GOING TO PROMISE WHAT THE PERSISTENCE
IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE OUT THAT THEY ARE RECEIVING THE FUNDS AND REPORT OUT ON WHAT WE ARE DOING
WITH THE PCC PROMISE AND HOW THAT IS CHANGING AND IMPACTING OUR STUDENTS FOR SUCCESS BECAUSE
I BELIEVE WE HAVE MORE FLEXIBILITY WITH OUR OWN PCC PROMISE. I THINK RECOGNIZING THAT THE DEMOGRAPHIC OF
STUDENTS, NOT GOING TO BENEFIT FROM THE CALIFORNIA PROMISE, HOW WE MIGHT HELP THEM ACHIEVE THEIR
SUCCESS. THANK YOU.>>TRUSTEE LAU?>>WE ARE LIAISONS TO THE PCC FOUNDATION AND
THERE HAS BEEN DISCUSSION WITHIN THE FOUNDATION TO SUPPORT STUDENTS IN TERMS OF BOOKS. PERHAPS SOME OTHER LIVING NEEDS OTHER THAN
TUITION BECAUSE OF THE CHANGES WITH THE CALIFORNIA PROMISE. THE FOUNDATION IS VERY MUCH AWARE OF OUR STUDENT
BODY AND THE TYPE OF STUDENT NEEDS THAT MAY BE DIFFERENT FROM 20 YEARS AGO. I HOPE THAT WE WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE THAT
CONVERSATION WITH THE FOUNDATION.>>ANY OTHER COMMENTS? TRUSTEE MARTIN?>>JUST WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT ONE OR TWO THINGS
THAT I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT FOR TRUSTEES TO KNOW. IF I COULD TAKE YOU BACK TO THE EVER SMALL
MISERABLE SLIDE 13 OF ALL THE FUNDS. YOU GOT RIGHT ON IT. WE DO HAVE A BALANCED BUDGET AND YOU SAW A
COMMENT ABOUT CUTTING TRANSFERS, BUT IF YOU TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THE GENERAL FUND AND YOU
LOOK DOWN INTO THE SHADED TOTAL OF ALL FUNDS, YOU SEE THE NET FUND ACTIVITY OF ALL FUNDS
IS -$11 MILLION. INCLUDED IN THESE FUNDS, THERE IS SOME MEASURE
KEY MONEY OF 2.3 MILLION UP THERE THAT IS UP ONE TIME AND WE ARE DEPLETING THAT DOWN. I’M SURE THERE ARE OTHER ONE-TIME MONEYS EMBEDDED
IN OTHER THINGS HERE TOO, BUT WE NEED TO REALIZE THAT WHEN WE GET THE BIG PICTURE, THAT WE
ARE TRYING TO DO A LOT OF MOVES HERE TO PRESERVE THE QUALITY OF EDUCATION AND SO WE ARE REDUCING
TRANSFERS TO SOME OTHER REALLY IMPORTANT FUNDS AND ONCE YOU HAVE REDUCED IT ONE YEAR, IT
IS NOT THERE TO REDUCE AGAIN. NEXT YEAR. THIS IS A BIT OF AN ALARMING TREND, TO SEE
THIS IS HAPPENING AND WE UNDERSTAND WHY IT IS HAPPENING BUT I THINK SOMEHOW IN THE TOTAL
PRESENTATION, I DIDN’T WANT US TO MISS A LITTLE BIT OF THE BIGGER PICTURE AND THE OTHER THING
JUST FOR CLARITY, BECAUSE I KNOW IT TOOK ME SEVERAL YEARS TO GET ALL THIS STRAIGHT, AND
EVEN THE LAST BUDGET MEETING. ON HERE, YOU’LL SEE A FUND 64 SELF-INSURANCE
FUND AND FURTHER DOWN, YOUR REVOCABLE TRUST OPED. WE SET UP THIS YOUR REVOCABLE TRUST AND PUT
NUMEROUS MONEY IN THERE SO IT CAN GROW AT FASTER RATES IN THE TREASURY. WE HAD OUR OWN INTERNAL FUND 64 THAT IS NOT
PART OF THAT TRUST AND YOU CAN SEE THAT THOUGH THE TRUST, WE ARE NOT TAKING MONEY OUT OF
THE TRUST, WE ARE REALLY NOT PUTTING MONEY INTO THE TRUST TO SUPPORT FUTURE OPEB AND
IT IS BEING REDUCED. AS A REMINDER, THE OPEB’S EMPLOYEES WHO HAVE
WORKED A CERTAIN TENURE HERE, 14 YEARS OR SOMETHING AND RETIRE AT A CERTAIN AGE. WE FIND THEIR INSURANCE UNTIL THERE MEDICARE
ELIGIBLE AND THEN AFTER THAT, WE FUND $1440 A YEAR SO THEY CAN USE THAT MONEY TO GET THE
MEDICARE SUPPLEMENT AND BE ON A BETTER MEDICARE PLAN. THAT IS OPEB, AND IT IS THE SAME IN GOING
ON FOR FUND 69 [LISTING NAMES AND –CALPERS AND STRS. WE ARE GRATEFUL IT GOT REDUCED A LITTLE BIT,
IT WAS THE OLD THREATEN TWO ARMS AND ONLY TAKE ONE. THOSE ARE WHAT THOSE FUNDS ARE AND THE TRUST
WERE REALLY NOT SUPPOSED TO TOUCH. THE INTERNAL FUND IS WHERE WE WOULD START. WE SHOW REVENUES FOR THE REVOCABLE TRUST AND
THE BUDGET FOR THESE ARE VERY COMPARABLE TO WHAT WE SAW REPORTED TO US THAT WE HAVE MADE
SO FAR THIS LAST YEAR BUT WE PUT THEM IN THIS TRUST SO THEY CAN MAKE MORE MONEY AND THE
WAY THEY MAKE MORE MONEY IS A LARGER PORTION OF THOSE ARE INVESTED IN THE STOCK MARKET
OR STOCK MARKET RELATED KINDS OF ACTIVITIES AND SO THOUGH WE SHOW THE 600,000 250,000,
THAT IS A LITTLE SPECULATIVE BASED ON WHAT THE MARKET MAY OR MAY NOT DO AS OPPOSED TO
WHAT WE ARE SO USED TO HE RE, THE GUARANTEED SMALL PERCENT THAT L.A. COUNTY FUNDING WOULD
GIVE US. THERE IS SOME BIG PICTURE BLINKING RED LIGHTS
HERE IN FRONT OF US AND YOU HAVE TO SEE IT ON THE FUND PAGE MORE THAN LOOKING INTO THE
GENERAL FUND, WHICH IS WHERE WE SPEND 90% OF OUR TIME AND TALK ABOUT MAKING SURE WE
HAVE CLASSES AND TEACHERS AND THINGS.>>WHAT IS THE PAY RATIO FOR THESE FUNDS?>>I DON’T UNDERSTAND?>>ARE YOU REFERRING TO THE EARNINGS?>>JOHN, YOU MIGHT SPEAK TO THE REVOCABLE
FUNDS.>>WE’VE HAD THEM ABOUT 11 MONTHS SO WE ARE
LOOKING AT THE LAST 11 MONTHS. WE MADE A RETURN OF SIX POINTS 3% — 6.3%. THE COUNTY TREASURY WOULD HUG ONE.>>122.>>– ONE TO TWO.>>THE IDEA IS IF YOU DON’T NEED THEM FOR
X NUMBER OF YEARS, IN THE LONG RUN WE BENEFIT. YOU DON’T WANT THIS TO BE PUT IN SHORT TERM
BECAUSE IT COULD BE THE WRONG YEAR.>>WHAT I WAS CURIOUS ABOUT AS A FINANCIAL
LAYMAN, SO WE ARE NOT USING YOUR REVOCABLE TRUST, OPEB FOR ANY CURRENT NEEDS IN THE NEXT
FIVE YEARS?>>I’M NOT GOING TO SAY THE NEXT FIVE YEARS
BUT IN THE TENTATIVE TOUCH IT FOR ONE YEAR OR NOT, THOUGH OBVIOUSLY THE INTERNAL OPEB
SELF-INSURANCE FUND IS GOING DOWN BY $2 MILLION.>>IF WE LOSE 20% IN A STOCK MARKET DECLINE,
THAT OBVIOUSLY IMPACTS US PRETTY SERIOUSLY IN TERMS OF THE OPERATION OF THE COLLEGE?>>IT WOULD IMPACT US, BUT THE TRUST MONEY
IS NOT 100 ARE SENT STOCKS — 100% STOCKS. MY RECOLLECTION IS OF THE FLOOR PLAN YOU CAN
PICK FROM RATHER CONSERVATIVE TO RATHER AGGRESSIVE, WE ARE PRETTY CLOSE TO ALMOST RATHER CONSERVATIVE,
WHICH IS USUALLY MORE OF A FIXED INCOME WHICH TRADITIONALLY DOES GOOD WHEN STOCKS TOO BAD
BUT NOT ALWAYS.>>TRUSTEE MARTIN, LET ME FOLLOW UP ON TRUSTEE
HILSMAN’S QUESTION. WE ARE NOT YET TAKING MONEY OUT OF YOUR REVOCABLE
TRUST FOR OPEB . WE ARE ASSUMING IT WILL EARN $600,000, BUT TO BE CLEAR, WE ARE TAKING $2
MILLION OUT OF FUND NUMBER 64, WHICH IS THE OLD OPEB SELF-INSURANCE FUND SO MY FOLLOW-UP
QUESTION IS SHOULD WE EXPECT EVERY YEAR ABOUT A $2 MILLION WITHDRAWAL OR IS THERE SOME REASON
THE WITHDRAW FROM THE OLD OPEB SELF-INSURANCE WAS HIGHER THIS YEAR.>>I DON’T BELIEVE YOU SHOULD EXPECT THAT. THE FUND WAS CARRYING A FUND BALANCE AND BASED
OFF OF THE EXPENDITURE TRENDS, THE DECISION WAS MADE TO USE SOME OF THAT ENDING BALANCE
RATHER THAN LEAVING IT THERE.>>OK, SO WOULD WE EXPECT A ROUGHLY $2 MILLION
WITHDRAWAL FROM THE NEW IRREVOCABLE TRUST FOR THE OPEB ON AN ONGOING BASIS?>>NOW. — NO. YOU WOULD EXPECT MORE MONEY GOING INTO OPEB
FUND TO PAY THE ONGOING OPEB BENEFITS. THIS IS ONE TIME SPENDING IT DOWN.>>THANK YOU. I HAVE — TRUSTEE BROWN?>>I WANTED TO COMMENT THAT I THINK WHEN WE
OPENED YOUR REVOCABLE TRUSTS, IT WAS DONE WITH THE PREMISE THAT WE FULLY UNDERSTOOD
WE WOULD NEVER COMPROMISE THE DISTRICT WHITE — BY INVESTING IN SPOT — STOCKS. THE WHOLE IDEA IS WE WOULD HAVE A PORTFOLIO
TO ENSURE THAT WE WILL ALWAYS MAKE MORE MONEY. ALWAYS MAKE MORE MONEY THAN WE SPEND INTO
THE COUNTY FUND AND I THINK THAT WAS THE WHOLE PREMISE.>>ALWAYS IS A REALLY STRONG WORD.>>ANY COMMENTS?>>I DIDN’T ANTICIPATE ALWAYS. I THINK IT IS A CONSERVATIVE FOR FOLIO — PORTFOLIO
DESIGNED TO HELP US DO BETTER IN THE LONG RUN, FOR SURE. THE TRICK IS NOT TO NEED THE CASH TO SURE
SO THE LONG RUN CAN OCCUR AND THAT IS WHERE THE CHALLENGE IS GOING TO COME.>>TRUSTEE BROWN, ARE YOU DONE?>>ONE MORE QUESTION, WHICH MAY BE WIDELY
OFF-TOPIC. IF THE COLLEGE OR TO PURSUE A BOND IN 2020
OF X- MILLION DOLLARS, WITH THAT GO INTO A SIMILAR BUILDING FUND AS IT IS IDENTIFIED
IN 42 OR IS THERE ANOTHER WAY TO DISPERSE OR IDENTIFY THOSE FUNDS? WHERE CAN THAT MONEY GO?>>IT NEEDS TO GO INTO A BUILDING FUND. IT PROBABLY WOULD GO INTO FUND 42. WE CAN PUT A SUB FUND TO SEPARATE THE TWO
BONDS BUT WE ANTICIPATE FULLY EXPENDING THE MAJOR — MEASURE P MONEYS. IT NEEDS TO BE IN A BUILDING FUND.>>THAT’S A LEGAL REQUIREMENT?>>YES. FROM MY MEASURE P EXPERIENCE, THERE ARE VERY
STRICT LAWS ON ARBITRAGING THE MONEY. NOT ONLY DOES IT NEED TO GO INTO ITS OWN FUND,
BUT WE CAN’T GENERATE A SITUATION WHERE WE GET TOO MUCH MONEY FOR THE PROJECT WE ARE
DOING TOO SOON AND IF WE DO, WE HAVE TO PAY A PENALTY ON IT. THEY DON’T WANT US LETTING THE BONDS OUT,
MAKING A LOT OF INTEREST ON IT AND SLOWLY DOING THE PROJECT. THERE IS A RAY SHOW THEIR. — RATIO THERE.>>DR. BUSH, GO AHEAD.>>BOND COUNSEL WOULD ADVISE THE DISTRICT
ON HOW QUICKLY TO SELL THE BONDS AS OPPOSED TO HOW QUICKLY YOU CAN SPEND THEM.>>THANK YOU.>>TRUSTEE CHEN LAU?>>IN PREPARATION FOR THE BOND , IF WE WERE
TO GO FOR A BOND CAMPAIGN, THAT MONEY WOULD COME FROM 41?>>IT USUALLY DOES NOT COME FROM THE DISTRICT. IT WOULD BE A NONPROFIT OR FOUNDATION THAT
WOULD BE SUPPORTING THE CAMPAIGN.>>OUR FOUNDATION HAS EXPRESSED THE DESIRE
TO SUPPORT THAT CAMPAIGN IF AND WHEN WE GET TO THAT STAGE.>>THANK YOU.>>OK, A COUPLE OF QUICK QUESTIONS. DR. BUSH, YOU MENTIONED EARLY ON IN SLIDE TWO
THAT THE PROPERTY TAX HAS DECLINED. I KNOW WE DON’T CONTROL ANYTHING THAT GOES
ON AT THE STATE LEVEL, BUT — AND THEY DO ALL THESE THINGS AND PUT ALL THESE THINGS
OUT AND SAY THE COMMUNITY COLLEGES GET X AMOUNT OF THE MANY AND SO FORTH, BUT IT STRIKES ME
AS ODD THAT OUR PROPERTY TAXES STATEWIDE WOULD BE GOING DOWN IF WE ARE IN AN ECONOMY THAT
IS AT LEAST STABLE IF NOT RISING BECAUSE DUE TO PROP 13, EVERYBODY’S PROPERTY TAXES GO
UP A MINIMUM OF 2% PER YEAR AND THEN WHEN YOU HAVE TRANSACTIONS OF A PROPERTY THAT HASN’T
TRADED FOR MANY YEARS, THE VALUATION OF THAT PROPERTY GOES UP A LOT AND WHEN YOU PUT ALL
THAT TOGETHER, UNLESS WE ARE IN AN ECONOMIC DECLINE, I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW WE COULD HAVE
A PROPERTY TAX DECLINE STATEWIDE.>>IT IS NOT A YEAR-OVER-YEAR PROPERTY TAX
DECLINE. IT IS WHAT THE DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE FORECASTED
IN JANUARY AS OPPOSED TO IN MAY.>>THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FORECAST — THAT
MAKES SENSE.>>IT IS FORECAST AND FORECAST. IT ACTUALLY WON’T HAPPEN UNTIL NEXT APRIL.>>THAT MAKES SENSE. THEN THE PENSION RELIEF, YOU MENTIONED THE
PENSION FUND RELIEF WAS ACTUALLY ABOVE AND BEYOND PROP 98? FUNDED US OUR FULL PROP 98 AND THEY GIVE US
FUNDS TOWARD CALSTRS AND CALPERS?>>YES.>>THAT’S GREAT.>>THE ADDITIONAL MONEY FOR CALSTRS AND CALPERS,
IS IT COMING TO THE DISTRICT AND WE GET TO CONTRIBUTE IT BACK UP OR IS IT GOING STRAIGHT
FROM THE STATE INTO THE FUNDS?>>THEY ARE PAYING DOWN THE LIABILITY AT THE
STATE LEVEL SO THE FUNDS NEED TO CHARGE LESS — LESS. STRS IS CONTROLLED BY THE LEGISLATURE AND
PERS IS CONTROLLED BY THE PERS BOARD. WE KIND OF HAVE A CALCULATION OF WHAT IT WILL
BE BUT PERS BOARD HAS NOT TAKEN ACTION TO RESET THE RAID.>>ONE-TIME YEAR AGO, THEY WERE DISCUSSING
GIVING LOCAL DISTRICTS MORE MONEY THAT THEY COULD THEN IN TURN RESEND BACKUP BUT IT DIDN’T
MAKE SENSE TO CIRCLE THE MONEY THROUGH THE DISTRICT AND CONFUSE EVERYBODY. LOOK AT ALL THIS MONEY WE GOT, WHEN IT SHOULD
GO DIRECTLY WITHOUT PASSING GO AND COLLECTING $200.>>I BELIEVE THEY WERE DOING THAT TO PUT IT
UNDER PROP 98 AND DISTRIBUTED. — DISTRIBUTE IT. IT IS A WAY TO BALANCE THE STATE BUDGET.>>MY FINAL QUESTION, AND WE TOUCHED ON IT,
WE’RE NOT IN HOLD HARMLESS. WE ARE A SUCCESS FORMULA COLLEGE, AT LEAST
SO FAR, BUT WHAT WE LEARNED IS IN ORDER TO MEET THE HOLD HARMLESS REQUIREMENTS, THE SUCCESS
FORMULA COLLEGES LOST THEIR SUCCESS BONUS AND MY OWN — ONLY COMMENT IS THE LONGER WE
HAVE A HARMLESS GUARANTEED, THE LONGER POTENTIALLY THE SUCCESS COLLEGES MAY NOT GET THEIR SUCCESS
FORMULA MONEY. THAT IS JUST AN OBSERVATION AND SPECULATION
FOR US TO GET FITTER AND THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT WE HAVE LOST IN SUCCESS FORMULA, THAT
WE BELIEVE WE HAVE LOST, EQUALS OR EXCEEDS THE REDUCTION AND THE TRANSFERS TO THE OTHER
FUNDS, WHICH IS ABOUT $2,000,900. I WILL ROUND THAT UP TO $3 MILLION. HAD WE RECEIVED OUR SUCCESS FORMULA, PERHAPS
THERE WOULD BE ANOTHER $3 MILLION OR MORE THAT WE COULD BE MAKING ADDITIONAL TRANSFERS
AND THAT WAS REALLY A QUESTION, NOT A STATEMENT. IS THAT A FAIR REPRESENTATION? OUR BUDGET WAS REDUCED AND THEREFORE WE COULD
NOT TRANSFER AS MUCH MONEY OUT OF OUR GENERAL FUND TO FUND OTHERS LIKE STRS AND PERS.>>THAT IS A FAIR STATEMENT BUT THERE ARE
MANY MOVING PARTS. SALARIES AND BENEFITS WENT UP. PERS AND STRS STILL WENT UP, EVEN THOUGH NOT
AS MUCH. WE STILL HAVE 3 MILLION PLUS IN SALARY AND
BENEFIT OBLIGATIONS. IT IS SORT OF A MOVING TARGET AND THE COMMENT
OF LEAVING THAT FUND BALANCE IN THE OPEB SELF-SERVICE FUND IS THE BEST PLACE TO HAVE IT. THERE IS A NUMBER OF DISCUSSIONS THAT COULD
TAKE PLACE, BUT CERTAINLY HAVING $3 MILLION TO $690 MORE IS A GOOD THING. IT CREATES MORE OPTIONS FOR THE DISTRICT.>>ANY QUESTIONS ON THE BUZZ IT — BUDGET
PRESENTATION?>>I WANT TO MAKE A GENERAL COMMENT. I WANT TO THANK THE DOCTOR WHO WORKED WITH
ALL OF OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS. TO HAVE BEEN HERE FOUR MONTH SEND IT TO GROUND
RUNNING AS SOON AS SHE KNEW THIS WAS AN ISSUE. AND BROUGHT OUT THE BIG GUNS TO THE CAPITAL
AND REALLY STOMPED AND MAKE THIS HAPPEN. I REALLY COMMEND YOU FOR IT. ONE FROM ANOTHER COLLEGE SAID SHE WAS JUST
“GANGSTA. “>>I KNOW WHO MADE THAT COMMENT. THE OTHER COMMENT I GENERALLY WANT TO MAKE
AS WE LOOK AT OTHER STRATEGIES, I KNOW FOR THE LEAGUE, WE — THERE WAS A STRATEGY TO
REALLY ADVOCATE THE BUDGET NOT TAKE MONEY FROM PROP 98 FOR FACILITIES TO IMPROVE MAINTENANCE. FORTUNATELY MAINTENANCE WAS ALLOCATED AND
IT CAME FROM PROP 98 MONEY, WHICH REDUCES THE MONEY TO EDUCATION. EDUCATION PROGRAMS FOR OUR STUDENTS SO AS
WE LOOK FORWARD ON OUR STRATEGY AND OUR ADVOCACY STRATEGIES, I WOULD LIKE TO KEEP THAT IN MIND
FOR THE FUTURE ADVOCACY’S.>>DO WE NEED A MOTION ON THIS?>>YES, WE NEED A MOTION TO APPROVE THE TENTATIVE
BUDGET.>>[MOTION AND SECOND]>>ALL IN FAVOR? AYE.>>ANY OPPOSED? MOTION CARRIES. THANK YOU FOR THAT PRESENTATION.>>YES, THANK YOU.>>WE ARE MOVING ON TO ITEM NUMBER TWO, WHICH
IS TO ADOPT RESOLUTION NUMBER 606 COMEDY AUTHORIZATION FOR TEMPORARY — THE AUTHORIZATION FOR TEMPORARY
INTERFUND CASH BORROWING. ANY EXPLANATION NECESSARY OR JUST A VOTE?>>[MOTION AND SECOND]>>THE MOTION HAS BEEN MADE AND SECONDED. ALL IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY.>>AYE.>>MOTION CARRIES. MOVING ON TO ITEM NUMBER THREE. THIS IS THE APPROVAL OF ADDITIONS, DELETIONS,
AND MODIFICATIONS TO THE CREDIT AND NONCREDIT CURRICULUM. DO WE HAVE ANY DISCUSSION?>>[MOTION AND SECOND]>>ANY DISCUSSION? HEARING NONE, ALL IN FAVOR? AYE.>>MOTION CARRIED UNANIMOUSLY. ITEM NUMBER FOUR. THIS IS A 2019-2022 STUDENT EQUITY PLAN.>>OK, I’M GOING TO INTRODUCE DR. CYNTHIA TO GET US STARTED.>>IT GIVES ME GREAT PLEASURE — PLEASURE
TO INTRODUCE OUR PROFESSOR OF STUDENT EQUITY WHO HAS WORKED IN A SHORT TIMEFRAME
OVER THE PAST TWO MONTHS. DR. MARISSA HAS WORKED WITH THE STUDENT SUCCESS
COMMITTEE AS WELL AS PRESENTED TO THE GOVERNANCE GROUPS ON CAMPUS TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS
THE DATA AND THE PLAN GOING FORWARD. WILL YOU PLEASE PRESENT OUR PLAN?>>GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE. IT IS AN HONOR TO STAND BEFORE YOU AND BE
ACCOMPANIED BY MY COLLEAGUE FROM THE OFFICE OF INSTITUTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS TO PRESENT
THE 2019-2022 EQUITY PLAN FOR PASADENA CITY COLLEGE. WHILE NEXT YEAR MARKS COMPLETION OF MY SECOND
FULL YEAR, I LIKE SHARING PRESENTATIONS THAT MY HISTORY WITH PCC IS LONGER THAN THAT. MY FATHER ATTENDED AS THE FIRST IN HIS FAMILY
TO PURSUE HIGHER EDUCATION AND IS A PROUD ALUMNUS OF THE CLASS OF 1961. MY MOTHER ATTENDED PHS AND CAME TO PCC AS
A FIRST-GENERATION COLLEGE STUDENT AND GRADUATED FROM HERE IN 1973. BOTH OF MY PARENTS TRANSFERRED, BECAME EDUCATORS,
AND RAISED ME AND MY LITTLE BROTHER, WHO IS A ALUMNUS OF PCC CLASS OF 2003. AS SUCH, I’M PRIVILEGED TO STAND BEFORE YOU
PRECISELY BECAUSE OF THE GENERALIZATION — GENERATIONAL IMPACT OF PCC. THE COLLECTIVE WORK OF OUR STUDENTS, FACULTY,
MANAGERS, AND STAFF WILL MAKE UP OUR COLLEGE COMMUNITY AND HAVE THE ACTIVITIES THAT CONSTITUTE
OUR STUDENT EQUITY PLAN. IN TERMS OF AN OVERVIEW FOR THIS EVENING,
I WILL BE SHARING WITH YOU A BACKGROUND ON THE EQUITY PLAN AND HOW IT IS SITUATED WITHIN
LARGER COLLEGE AND STATE INITIATIVES. WE WILL GO OVER A BIRDS EYE VIEW OF THE DATA
THAT HAS BEEN PROVIDED BY THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE AND VARIOUS ITERATIONS BUT THROUGH
THE HARD WORK OF THE OFFICE OF INSTITUTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS IS PRESENTED TONIGHT IN A WAY
THAT IS VERY UNDERSTANDABLE AND HAS BEEN EASY FOR US TO USE. THEN WE WILL GO OF THE ACTUAL 20192022 EQUITY
PLAN GOALS AND THE STEPS WE HAVE AND WELCOME ANY DISCUSSION AFTER THAT. TO START OUT WITH IN TERMS OF BACKGROUND,
EVERY CALIFORNIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE MUST HAVE AN EQUITY PLAN THAT COVERS FROM 2019 TO 2022,
SHARES CURRENT DATA ON STUDENT EXPERIENCES AND OUTLINES HOW WE ARE GOING TO WORK TO CLOSE
EQUITY GAPS. THE DUE DATE FOR THIS PLAN IS THAT IT IS TO
BE UPLOADED AND RECEIVED BY THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE BY JUNE 30 OF THIS MONTH. AS WE KNOW, THE VISION FOR SUCCESS OUTLINES
OUR CALIFORNIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE’S SYSTEMWIDE GOALS WHICH INCLUDES ELIMINATING EQUITY GAPS
WITHIN 10 YEARS OF WHEN THE DOCUMENT WAS THE LOCALS THAT RESET SENT BY THE COLLEGE COMMUNITY
— THEY APPROACHED THE LOCAL GOALS THAT WERE APPROVED BY THE COLLEGE COMMUNITY. THIS EVENING WE ARE ASKING YOU TO APPROVE
THE EQUITY PLAN THAT ALIGNS WITH THE VISION FOR SUCCESS AND LOCAL GOALS AND SPECIFICALLY
ARTICULATE HOW OUR CAUSE WILL FOCUS OUR CONTINUED EFFORTS ON THE STUDENTS WHO ARE EXPERIENCING
DISPROPORTIONATE IMPACT OR EQUITY GAPS. THE STATE PROVIDES US WITH DATA FOR THE PARTICULAR
STUDENT GROUPS THAT HAVE DETERMINED THE LEGISLATION THAT IS OUTLINED IN THE CALIFORNIA EDUCATIONAL
CODE. THE DEFINITIONS WE — THIS INCLUDES RACE AND
ETHNICITY. ALSO, THEIR IDENTITIES AS CURRENT OR FORMER
FOSTER YOUTH, LGBT STUDENTS, ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS. STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES AND BETTERMENTS. ALL OF THE ABOVE GROUPS ARE FURTHER PUT IN
THE CATEGORIES OF FEMALE, MALE. I WILL INCLUDE A STUDENT TO HAVE SELECTED
UNKNOWN BECAUSE THEY DON’T FALL UNDER THE GENDER BINARY. OR THEY DECIDED TO NOT REPORTED. MOVING ON TO THE METRICS, THERE ARE FIVE STUDENT
SUCCESS METRICS THAT WE HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED TO — WE CONSIDER ENROLLMENT. THEY INDICATED THIS ON THEIR APPLICATION FROM
THE PREVIOUS OR SELECTED ACADEMIC YEAR. THE STUDENTS WHO INDICATED THAT THEY WANTED
TO COME TO PCC, HOW MANY ACTUALLY CAME AND THEN ENROLLED IN THE FALL. THE NEXT METRIC IS RETENTION. THAT IS RETENTION FROM FALL TO SPRING. THOSE WERE THE STUDENTS WHO WERE WITH US IN
THE FALL TAKING CLASSES. HOW MANY CAME BACK IN THE SPRING. THAT INCLUDES THOSE WHO GRADUATED. AFTER THAT, THE METRIC THAT WE LOOK AT IS
COMPLETION OF TRANSFER LEVEL MATH AND ENGLISH IN A STUDENT’S YEAR IN THE DISTRICT — FIRST
YEAR IN THE DISTRICT WITH US. THE FOURTH METRIC IS THE SHORTENED DEFINITION
OF COMPLETION. THAT IS THE STUDENT THAT EARNED ONE OR MORE
OF THE FOLLOWING. THAT IS A CERTIFICATE OR ASSOCIATES DEGREE. THAT IS AN UNDUPLICATED HEADCOUNT. FINALLY, TRANSFERS, THAT IS THE NUMBER OF
STUDENTS WHO TRANSFER TO A POST SECONDARY INSTITUTION, PUBLIC, PRIVATE, STATE, ALL THAT
IS INCLUDED IN THE TRANSFER METRIC. WHEN WE THINK ABOUT THOSE METRICS, THEY REFLECT
THE STUDENT LIFECYCLE. THAT IS THIS DIALOGUE — DIAGRAM THAT YOU
SEE NOW. THEY START THEIR JOURNEY WITH US THROUGH ENROLLMENT
AFTER THAT WE WANT THEM TO COME BACK AND TAKE CLASSES WITH US IN THE SPRING AND THEN ONE
WOULD THINK THAT WE WOULD HAVE THEM COMPLETE TRANSFER LEVEL MATH AND ENGLISH IN THEIR FIRST
YEAR. THAT WOULD BE A GREAT GOAL. THEN IT MOVES ON. WHILE WE KNOW THAT NO JOURNEY IS COMPLETELY
LINEAR, THIS IS A HELPFUL DIAGRAM FOR US TO THINK ABOUT IN TERMS OF HOW THOSE METRICS
REALLY RELATE TO EACH OTHER AND HOW THEY LINEUP. WE ARE ALSO GOING TO USE THIS DIAGRAM TO SHOW
A SELECTED BY REPRESENTATIVE SAMPLE OF WHERE OUR STUDENTS EXPERIENCE EQUITY GAPS. THE PURPOSE OF THIS PRESENTATION, WE CHOSE
TO SHARE THE RACIAL AND ETHNIC GROUP DATA FOR THE TWO LARGEST ONES IMPACTED. AS WELL AS THE ADDITIONAL IDENTITY MARKERS
THAT INCLUDES BASE AND ETHNICITY IN THEM. THE FIRST IS OUR AFRICAN-AMERICAN OR BLACK
COMMUNITY. WHEN WE THINK ABOUT AND LOOK AT THE DATA,
THE DATA FOR AFRICAN-AMERICAN FEMALES, THEY EXPERIENCED DISPROPORTIONATE EQUITY GAPS ACROSS
ALL FIVE OF THE METRICS. THAT IS INDICATED IN THE DIAGRAM BY THE FACT
THAT THERE IS THE BROKEN LINE AND THEY ARE SLIGHTLY OFF FROM WHAT WOULD BE A SMOOTHER
TRAJECTORY. WHEN WE LOOK AT THE DATA OR BLACK OR AFRICAN-AMERICAN
MALES, THEY EXPERIENCE EQUITY GAPS IN ALL FOUR METRICS EXCEPT — ALL FOR — FOUR OUT
OF THE FIVE METRICS. WHEN WE LOOK AT THE EVERY GET OF — AGGREGATE
OF BLACK OR AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDENTS, WE SEE AN EQUITY GAP ACROSS ALL OF THE METRICS. WHEN WE THINK ABOUT OUR LATINA, LET YOU FLAT
NEXT TO THIS, FEMALES SHOW THIS PROPORTIONATE IMPACT IN THE AREAS OF ENROLLMENT. LATINO MALES, OUR DATA SHOWS EXPERIENCE OF
THIS PROPORTIONATE IMPACT OF ATTENTION, TRANSFER LEVEL MATH AND ENGLISH COMPLETION AND TRANSFER. WHEN WE LOOK AT THE DATA AGGREGATE FOR ALL
LESS NEXT INNS, RECEIPT EQUITY GAPS. LAT THIS 0– LATIN X STUDENTS, WE SEE EQUITY
GAPS. WE WILL SET THE ADDITIONAL IDENTITY CATEGORIES
WHICH ARE INCLUSIVE OF RACE AND ETHNICITY. THERE ARE LATIN X STUDENTS, THERE ARE BLACK
STUDENT, ASIAN-PACIFIC ISLANDERS STUDENTS, WHEN STUDENTS WERE ALL INCLUDED IN THESE AS
WELL. WHEN WE DO BEST IS DISABILITY, THOSE WHO IDENTIFIED
AS EMAIL, THEY SHOW — THE DATA IS SHOWN THE SAME FOR MASTERS. WE SEE EQUITY GAPS IN THE SAME TWO CATEGORIES. WHEN WE LOOK AT OUR DATA ON FOSTER YOUTH,
CURRENT OR FORMER FOSTER YOUTH, OUR FEMALE STUDENTS EXPERIENCE EQUITY GAPS ON AREAS OF
ENROLLMENT AND TRANSFER LEVEL AND ENGLISH COMPLETION. OUR CURRENT AND FORMER FOSTER STUDENTS EXPERIENCE
EQUITY GAPS AND RETENTION PROBLEMS. WHEN WE LOOK AT THE AGGREGATE OF ALL FOSTER
YOUTH, WE SEE EQUITY GAPS IN THE AREA OF ENROLLMENT , RETENTION AND TRANSFER LEVEL MATH AND FOOLISH
LEVEL — ENGLISH COMPLETION. FOR LGBT STUDENTS, THOSE WHO ARE FEMALE IDENTIFYING,
WE SEEK EQUITY GAPS IN ALL OF THE METRICS EXCEPT FOR A MOMENT. WE SEE EQUITY GAPS IN ATTENTION, TRANSFER
LEVEL MATH AND ENGLISH, COMPLETION OF THE CERTIFICATE DEGREES THAT TRANSFER. WHEN WE LOOK AT THE AGGREGATE OF ALL LGBT
STUDENTS, AGAIN, WE SEE EQUITY GAPS ACROSS ALL FIVE METRICS OF ENROLLMENT RETENTION. TRANSFER LEVEL MATH AND ENGLISH COMPLETION,
CERTIFICATE DEGREE COMPLETION AND TRANSFER. AND THEN FINALLY, WHEN WE LOOK AT OUR DATA
ON VETERANS, VETERAN MALES ARE EXPERIENCING EQUITY GAPS IN RETENTION, TRANSFER LEVEL MATH
AND ENGLISH COMPLETION IN THEIR FIRST YEAR HERE. THE DATA CURRENTLY DOES NOT SHOW EQUITY GAPS
EXPERIENCED BY VETERANS FEMALES. WHEN WE LOOK AT THE AGGREGATES OF ALL VETERANS
HERE AT PCC, WE SEE EQUITY GAPS IN THE AREAS OF ATTENTION AND TRANSFER LEVEL MATH AND HE
WAS COMPLETION. WHEN WE TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE STRUCTURE OF
THE EQUITY PLAN SET BY THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE, THAT IS PRETTY STRICT. THE STUDENT SUCCESS COMMITTEE LOOK AT EACH
METRIC INDIVIDUALLY AND TOOK INTO ACCOUNT DATA FROM THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE THAT WAS
PROVIDED TO US. OUR LOCAL GOALS AND VISION FOR SUCCESS AND
HOW LARGE THE EQUITY GAPS ARE CURRENTLY SHOWING IN OUR DATA. WHAT RESOURCES AND ACTIVITIES WE CURRENTLY
HAVE IN PLACE AND OTHER INFORMATION ABOUT STUDENTS. WE DID NOT WANT TO TAKE A ONE SIZE FITS ALL
APPROACH. INSTEAD, WE WANT TO SET AN INFORMED GO THAT
WAS AMBITIOUS BUT ACHIEVABLE FOR EACH METRIC. YOU’LL SEE THAT IN MUCH GREATER DETAIL IN
THE PLAN AS A WHOLE. THERE ARE FOUR STRATEGIES THAT CUT ACROSS
ALL THE METRICS. THOSE INCLUDE TO CONTINUE INSTITUTIONAL TRANSFORMATION
AND CONSISTENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR PROFESSIONAL LEARNING THAT ARE EQUITY MINDED AND STUDENT
CENTERED. ALSO, TO FURTHER ESTABLISH THE IMPACT OF EFFORTS
THAT WE HAVE GOING ON AND BRING FORTH AT OUR COLLEGE. TO ENGAGE IN INQUIRY AND DESIGNED TO FURTHER
STRENGTHEN EXISTING RESOURCES AND SERVICES AND DETERMINE WHERE ADDITIONAL INNOVATIONS
ARE NEEDED. FINALLY, TO ENGAGE IN INQUIRIES TO ACCESS
AND I VALUATE — EVALUATE THESE ACTIVITIES. THESE STRATEGIES CONTINUE OUR COUNT IS PURSUIT
OF ACHIEVING EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES WITH THE PURPOSEFUL UNDERSTANDING THAT — THEY CREATED
STRUCTURAL BARRIERS FOR STUDENT OF COLOR IN PARTICULAR. THEY INTERSECT WITH OTHER IDENTIFYING IDENTITY
MARKERS SUCH AS GENDER, GENDER IDENTITY, CITIZENSHIP STATUS, OTHERS WHO HAVE VARYING DEGREES OF
PRIVILEGE. FINALLY, EVEN STUDENT OF COLOR, LGBTQ STUDENTS,
STUDENT WITH DISABILITIES, CURRENT FOSTER YOUTH, VETERANS BRING WITH THEM LIVED EXPERIENCES
AND ASPIRATIONS, VARIOUS ASSETS TO OUR COLLEGES. WITH THIS APPROACH, WE ARE TAKING A VERY INTENTIONAL
AND RESPONSIVE PLAN TO OUR STUDENTS AND ALSO THE ABILITY TO BUILD ON THEIR STRENGTH. THAT CONCLUDES THIS PART OF THE PRESENTATION. I WELCOME ANY DISCUSSION AND QUESTIONS THAT
THE BOARD MAY HAVE.>>YOU HAD THE BUZZER FIRST.>>I AM OUT OF HERE AT 9:00. SORRY. I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRESENTATION. I WAS REALLY PLEASED TO SEE THIS. THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST EQUITY PRESENTATIONS
I HAVE SEEN SINCE I HAVE BEEN HERE ON THE BOARD. THIS HAS BEEN FORMULAIC. IT REALLY SHOWS THAT THERE WAS A LOT OF THOUGHT
GIVEN. THAT THERE WAS A VARIED APPROACH IN ANALYZING
THE SUCCESS OF OUR STUDENTS. I JUST WANT TO GO ON RECORD. IT WAS A QUESTION I SUBMITTED EARLIER. I JUST WANT TO TALK ABOUT HOW THE CAUCUSES
REALLY FOUGHT HARD TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF ETHNIC GROUPS WE COULD ANALYZE. I KNOW WE WERE A LITTLE TIME BOUND BY WHAT
WE COULD DO IN ACCEPTING THE DATA THAT WAS COMING FROM THE SYSTEM. AS WE GO ON, I KNOW THAT YOU LOOK AT HOW WE
MIGHT EXPAND THAT SO WE CAN LOOK AT THIS AND DESEGREGATE THE DATA AND START TO IDENTIFY
THE STUDENTS THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN NOT DESEGREGATED AND FALLEN THROUGH THE CRACKS. I REALLY WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THIS PRESENTATION. IT WAS EXCELLENT.>>THANK YOU.>>DID YOU WANT TO GO FIRST?>>MR. BROWN — MRS. BROWN, YOU HAVE THE FLOOR.>>YOUR TEAM DID AN EXCELLENT JOB. I’M HAPPY TO SEE THAT WE ARE ADDRESSING THE
EQUITY ISSUE FOR THE DIFFERENT GROUPS THAT HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED. I AM HOPING THAT, I KNOW YOU GUYS ARE UNDER
PRESSURE. WITH ALL THE WORK THAT WAS PUT INTO PLAY,
AS I WAS READING THAT VERY HUGE DOCUMENT, ONE THING CAME TO MY MIND. WE MET THE DEADLINE. NOW WE ARE READY TO DO THE WORK. IT SEEMS LIKE WE ARE GOING TO NEED A LOT OF
RESOURCES TO GET THIS DONE. WITH WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO HELP THE STUDENTS
, HOW MANY FACULTIES AND COUNSELORS, WHERE IS
ALL THIS MONEY GOING TO COME FROM?>>I WILL POP IN HERE BEFORE THE TWO EXPERTS
SAY ANYTHING. I THINK THE SPIRIT OF THESE EQUITY PLANS,
THE SPIRIT OF THE EQUITY AND ACHIEVEMENT PLANS, THESE INITIATIVES ARE NOT NECESSARILY — WE
DO NEED ADDITIONAL FUNDS. YOU ARE RIGHT. WE DO HAVE EQUITY FUNDS FOR THAT. I THINK WHAT THIS REALLY CALLS FOR, ONE OF
THE THINGS THAT I THINK PASADENA CITY COLLEGE HAS DONE SO WELL SO FAR IS IT IS ABOUT INSTITUTIONALIZING
THIS. IT IS NOT ABOUT WHO WE ARE HIRING. IT IS ABOUT MAKING SURE THE PEOPLE WE ARE
HIRING PARTY HAVE THIS MINDSET. THAT WOULD TAKE A FUNDAMENTAL LOOK AT WHAT
IS THE PROCESS BY WHICH A STUDENT WANDERS ONTO OUR CAMPUS OR GOES TO OUR WEBSITE OR
CONTRACTS WITH ONE OF OUR OUTREACH STAFF AFTER AND HOW WE ADDRESS THEIR QUESTIONS AND HOW
WE DEMONSTRATE THAT THIS IS THE PLACE THEY ARE. — THE PLACE THEY NEED TO BE. WE ALWAYS WANT TO HAVE SUFFICIENT FUNDING
BUT IT IS ALSO ABOUT THE INSTITUTIONALIZATION. I THINK THAT IS SOMETHING THAT THIS COLLEGE
IS ALREADY DOING. NOW I WILL AT THE TWO EXPERTS SPEAK.>>I THINK YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. HOWEVER, THIS IS A BIG TASK. YOU ARE RIGHT, WE HAVE TO RETRAIN THE MINDSETS. I KNOW WE ARE HIRING FACULTY. WE HAVE A NEW CALL CENTER. I THINK THAT WILL BE GOOD. HOWEVER. I CANNOT SEE HOW THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT
FIVE YEARS. HELP ME UNDERSTAND.>>THERE IS ALLOCATION THAT IS CONNECTED TO
THIS REPORT THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE FROM THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE OF A COUPLE MILLION DOLLARS. ADDITIONALLY, I HAVE APPOINTED THE DOCTOR
TO LEAD THE GRANT WRITING. IT WILL BE FOR A NEW TITLE V GRANT. WE ARE TRYING TO GATHER MORE RESOURCES SO
THAT WE CAN CREATE THIS PLAN TO CLOSE OUR EQUITY GAPS EVEN FURTHER. ADDITIONALLY, WE ARE WORKING WITH OTHER CAMPUSES,
WITH OUR GUIDED PATHWAYS GRANT. THIS REQUIRES A COLLEGE WIDE EFFORT AND WE
ARE GETTING TO IT AND GETTING IT DONE.>>I WOULD AGREE, RESOURCES ARE ALWAYS WELCOME. IF ANY OF THE NINE PEOPLE WATCHING ON YOUTUBE
FEEL INSPIRED — ADD TO THIS WORK. PLEASE DO. THAT POINT IS ABSOLUTELY WILL TAKEN — WELL
TAKEN. JUST? MY COLLEAGUES AND MENTORS, DELIVERING THE
RESOURCES THAT WE ALREADY HAVE, LOOKING AT THE FACT THAT THERE ARE CERTAIN PRACTICES
THAT WE HAVE ALREADY BEEN ABLE TO CHANGE, THEY HAVE A IMPACTED THE DATA FOR THE GOOD. WHILE YOU SAW TRANSFER LEVEL MATH AND ENGLISH
AS A CONSISTENT METRIC WHERE THERE ARE GAPS BY VARIOUS STUDENT GROUPS, IF YOU LOOK AT
THE DATA, WE CAN ALSO SEE THERE WAS A BUMP BETWEEN THOSE RATES IN 2016 AND 2017 VERSUS
2017 TO 2018. WE ADOPTED A MULTIPLE MEASURES APPROACH TO
HOW WE PLACE TO STUDENTS INTO CLASSES. THAT WAS A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN THEM THAT DID
NOT REQUIRE A DOLLAR AMOUNT. IT WAS REALLY ABOUT A GROUP OF FACULTY. HOW DO WE MAKE CHANGES THAT WILL BENEFIT OUR
STUDENTS, EVEN IF THEY DO CAUSE A BIT OF DISCOMFORT? AS IT WAS OUR RETURN ON THAT CHANGE. IT IS BOTH RESOURCES AND THESE CONTINUED EFFORTS
THAT WE ARE DOING WITH EVERYBODY AT THE COLLEGE.>>THANK YOU. GOOD JOB.>>I WOULD LIKE TO ADD THAT IT DOES TAKE A
VILLAGE BUT ONE OF THE THINGS YOU DID TONIGHT WHEN YOU APPROVED ALL THOSE FACULTY WERE FOR
POSITIONS. WE HAVE NOT HAD THAT BEFORE. THAT IS ALSO ABOUT 705. IT IS ABOUT EQUITY GAPS BUT PROVIDING A DIFFERENT
TYPE OF SUPPORT FOR OUR STUDENTS THAN WE HAVE DONE BEFORE.>>WE HAD TRUSTY — TRUSTEE CHIN NEXT.>>HOW MANY STUDENTS ARE EXPERIENCING THIS
EQUITY GAP? HOW MANY AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDENTS. HOW MANY LATINO STUDENTS?>>IT DEPENDS ON THE METRIC. YOU GET A BETTER SENSE OF THAT IN SOME CASES. IT MIGHT BE DOZENS OF STUDENTS. WE DO NOT WANT TO SET A ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL
APPROACH. WE STARTED TO WRITE THE ACTIVITIES. WE ARE TRYING TO BE RESPONSIVE TO THAT IT
DEPENDS ON WHAT METRIC WE ARE LOOKING AT AND WHAT PARTICULAR GROUP OF STUDENTS.>>MY FOLLOW-UP QUESTION IS HOW WE BENCHMARK
THE SUCCESS. IF NOT ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL, MAYBE AFRICAN-AMERICAN
STUDENTS ARE EXPERIENCING DIFFERENT TYPES OF STRUGGLES THEN LATINO STUDENTS AND ASIAN
STUDENTS, ETC.. IN TERMS OF BENCHMARKING AND LOOKING AT SUCCESS,
WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS IN THREE YEARS, I’M NOT EVEN LOOKING AT YEAR-TO-YEAR , I THINK
THAT IS A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME. LET’S SAY IN 2022, IF WE START WITH X AMOUNT
OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDENTS EXPENSING EQUITY GAP, WHAT DOES THAT — WHAT DOES THE 2022
NUMBERS LOOK LIKE?>>LOOKS LIKE IT IS GETTING CLOSER TO COMPLETELY
CLOSING THE GAP. IT IS SITUATED WITHIN THAT LARGER CONTEXT
FOR SUCCESS. 2022 IS THE HALFWAY MARK TO COMPLETELY CLOSING
THE GAP. IT ALSO LOOKS LIKE DEPENDING ON THE METRIC
IN THE SIZE OF THE GROUP, THINKING ABOUT WHAT KIND OF PROGRESS WE CAN REASONABLY MAKE BUT
STILL THE AMBITIOUS ABOUT IT. I THINK THAT WHEN WE LOOK AT THIS AS THE STUDENT
SUCCESS COMMITTEE, DESOLATE THIS IS TO DETERMINE THOSE NUMBERS. — THIS IS TO DETERMINE THOSE NUMBERS. IT WOULD BE METRIC BY METRIC. I HAD TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE WORK OF ALL THOSE
PEOPLE. SOME OF THEM WERE IN THIS ROOM. THIS WAS TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE SIZE OF THE
GROUP TRANSIT WE ARE SEEING IN TERMS OF THE GROWTH AND MAYBE THE HOLDING STUDY OF THE
GROUP AND REALLY THINKING ABOUT A NUMBER THAT WE COULD ACHIEVE BY 2022 FOR THIS GROUP. NOW WE’RE MOVING TO GROUP B AND C AND THEN
GOING THROUGH IN THAT WAY.>>MAY I PLAY DEVILS ADVOCATE? LET’S SAY WE TURNED THE OTHER WAY AROUND,
LET’S SAY THAT IF BY 2022 WE WANTED TO COMPLETELY CLOSE THE GAP FOR ALL OF THE STUDENTS, WHAT
WOULD THAT TAKE? THAT WOULD TAKE MUCH ANYONE HERE UNDERSTANDING
THE ROLE THAT EACH INDIVIDUAL PLACE IN IMPACTING OUR STUDENT SUCCESS AND ALSO MOVING TO TRANSFORM
SOME OF OUR PRACTICES. AND ALSO TO DECIDE WHETHER THERE ARE ADDITIONAL
INNOVATIONS FOR THE GROUPS OF STUDENTS. DEPENDING ON STUDENT SIZE, THE SIZE OF THE
GAP, SOME OF THOSE GOALS INCLUDE CLOSING THE GAP BY THREE YEARS. WE SEE THE MOMENTUM, WE SEE WHERE THERE ARE
DIFFERENT RESOURCES THAT ARE GOING TO BE COMING ONLINE LIKE AN INTEGRATED WELCOME CENTER. LIKE OUR FOSTER YOUTH SUCCESS CENTER. WE ARE SEEING DIFFERENT THINGS BEING PUT INTO
PLACE THAT WE DO FEEL WE CAN CLOSE THE GAP.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. TRUSTEE HILSMAN: I SPECIALIZE IN NAIVE AND
STUPID QUESTIONS.>>I WILL BE FOLLOWING WITH SOME.>>I AM NOT ALONE. WE TALK ABOUT GROUPS BUT WHAT WE ARE REALLY
TALKING ABOUT IS INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS. I’M A BIG FAN OF DATA AND TECHNOLOGY AND ALGORITHMS
AND ALL THAT STUFF. IS THERE ANYWAY WE CAN TRACK THE PROGRESS
OF INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS REGARDLESS OF THEIR AS IN THE CITY — ETHNICITY TO IMPROVE THEIR
PROGRESS? ARE THERE LEGAL IMPEDIMENTS? WHAT IS THE PROSPECT?>>I CAN ANSWER THAT. WE CURRENTLY DO THAT. WE WILL. STUDENTS THAT ARE AFFILIATED WITH THE PROGRAM
AND STUDENTS WHO ARE NOT AFFILIATED WITH THE PROGRAM. FOR EXAMPLE, I CAN HAVE A LIST OF STUDENTS
WHO ARE IN ANY OF THE VARIOUS PROGRAMS YOU HAVE ALL SUPPORTED AND ATTENDED THEIR GRADUATION
EVENTS. THEN I HAVE A LIST OF STUDENTS WHO ARE IN
NO PROGRAM AND OUR GOAL IS TO ENGAGE THE STUDENTS IN SOME PROGRAM IN ORDER TO HELP THEM IN RETENTION
AND COMPLETION OF THEIR GOAL. WE DO THAT AT THIS TIME. IT IS ONE OF THE WAYS WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO
INCREASE OUR COMPLETION NUMBERS OVER THE PAST FIVE YEARS. IT IS THE DIRECT NUDGING OF THE STUDENTS TO
HELP GUIDE THEM AND WHAT THEY NEED TO DO NEXT.>>WHAT ABOUT INDIVIDUAL FACULTY? I’M TRY TO GET A RECORDING OF THEIR PROGRESS
IN EACH CLASS. JANE DELL IS NOT DOING WELL IN THREE OR FOUR
OF HER CLASSES, IT LOOKS LIKE SHE WILL FAIL.>>THE DEAN HAS LED HIS COUNSELING FACTORY
— FACULTY IN IMPLEMENTING WHAT WE CALL IN EARLY ALERT SYSTEM. PCC CONNECT. IT IS A SYSTEM THAT PROVIDES AN OPPORTUNITY
FOR A TWO A COMMUNICATION BETWEEN INSTRUCTIONAL FACULTY — INSTRUCTIONAL FACULTY AND STUDENTS.>>HAVE WE SEEN METRICS ON THAT? IS THAT SUCCESSFUL? DO WE HAVE THE RESOURCES THERE? DO WE NEED MORE?>>WE HAVE ABOUT 500 FACULTY MEMBERS USING
THIS. WE ARE ANALYZING THE DATA AND THE IMPACT OF
FACULTY VERSUS THOSE WHO DO NOT. ADDITIONALLY, I WILL SAY OUR INSTITUTIONAL
EFFECTIVENESS OFFICE HAS CREATED AN EQUITY DATA DASHBOARD THAT IS THE ENVY OF MANY COLLEGES
IN THE STATE BECAUSE WE PROVIDE TO ALL FACULTY. IT WOULD BE IN THE PUBLIC DATA. YOU CAN DRILL IT DOWN TO CERTAIN DISCIPLINES. AT PCC, WE ARE REALLY FAR AHEAD OF OTHER COLLEGES.>>WONDERFUL TO HEAR THAT. THAT IS GREAT. ONE OTHER NOTE IS — THERE MAY HAVE BEEN A
RESOURCE QUESTION. ONE OF THE THINGS CHANGING ABOUT THE PCC FOUNDATION
AND THE STRATEGY THERE IS TO FILL SOME OF THESE NEEDS THAT ARE NOT NECESSARILY STATE
OR COLLEGE FUNDED. I HAVE ARGUED AND THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR HAS
ARGUED THAT WE CAN USE OUR RESOURCES ARE STRATEGICALLY TO FILL IN RESOURCE GAPS THAT YOU HAVE IN
THE COLLEGE IN TERMS OF THE EQUITY PLAN OR HOMELESSNESS ISSUES. FOOD ISSUES, ALL KINDS OF THINGS. THAT IS WITH THE FOUNDATION IS THEREFORE. ESPECIALLY SINCE THE TUITION WILL GET PICKED
UP A LOT BY STATE AND LOCAL FUNDING. THEY ARE NOT THERE YET IN TERMS OF WHAT THEIR
PROCESSES. THAT IS ANOTHER RESOURCE WE CAN HOPE FOR.>>WE APPRECIATE THAT. THE CURRENT BRANCH WE WERE REWARDED WAS TO
PROVIDE TRANSPORTATION VOUCHERS. WE WORKED WITH LYFT TO SUPPORT THAT EFFORT. TRUSTEE MARTIN: I’M THINKING A LOT LIKE MY
FELLOW COLLEAGUE IS. AGAIN, JUST TO REITERATE SOMETHING, HE SAID
EVERY GROUP LISTED, MATH AND ENGLISH, THE CORE COURSE SEEMED TO JUMP OUT. A.B. THERE
WAS ONE THAT DID NOT. IT SEEMED UNIVERSAL ACROSS THE BOARD. MATH AND ENGLISH, CORE COURSES. I WOULD ALSO JUST , I WOULD LOOK AT ALL OF
THE GROUPS THAT WE ARE USING AND THINK I WOULD HAVE TO COVER ABOUT 40-50% OF ALL OF THE STUDENTS
ON CAMPUS. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS
OF STUDENTS. I AM SITTING HERE RATHER NAIVE, APPRECIATING
THIS AND I DON’T THINK YOU WILL FIND IT QUICK ENOUGH BUT THIS IS WHERE YOU TALK ABOUT PCC
CONNECT AS THE NUMBER ONE STRATEGY, IDENTIFYING TO MULTIPLE FACTORS INCLUDING RETENTION AND
COMMUNICATION SUPPORT FOR STUDENTS. I SIT HERE THINKING ABOUT OUR LAST CONVERSATION
WITH HOW THE STATE THINKS IN TERMS OF FULL-TIME STUDENTS AND YET, MORE AND MORE WE HAVE THESE
PART-TIME STUDENTS. THEY ARE HERE FOR ONE CLASS AND THEN THEY’RE
GONE. LET ME JUST SAY WHAT I AM THINKING AND LET
ALL OF YOU THAT UNDERSTAND IT BETTER TAKE WHAT ANY OF IT MEANS. TO ME, THE BOTTOM OF MY KERNEL AT THE END
OF THE DAY, THE LITTLE PLACE WHERE YOU GET DOWN TO THE LEASE, DENOMINATOR, THE SMALLEST
GRAIN OF SAND, THAT IS A TEACHER IN MATH AND ENGLISH SITTING WITH 30 STUDENTS IN A CLASS,
THE FIRST EXAM GOES OUT AND ASK NUMBER OF KIDS — X NUMBER OF KIDS MISSED THE MARK ON
THAT. THAT IS OUR POINT OF BEST INTERVENTION. RIGHT THERE.>>THAT IS HOW PCC CONNECT WORKS.>>IT IS HEARTENING TO HEAR 500 TEACHERS ARE
USING IT, BUT 500 IS A LOT OF TEACHERS. IF WE CAN CAPTURE THAT COLONEL IN THE FIRST
TEST, BECAUSE THESE ARE STUDENTS THAT DON’T WALK AROUND AND UNDERSTAND THE CULTURE AND
THE LAMBS. THESE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE WORKING AND RUSHING
HERE AND RUSHING OUT AND NEVER GETTING IT A SECOND THOUGHT. OUR NUMBER ONE THING IS TO SAY, HERE ARE ALL
THESE AMAZING RESOURCES. TO ME, I APPRECIATE ALL THE STRUCTURE YOU
HAVE DONE AND ALL YOU ARE DOING, BUT IF WE WE CAN GET THAT –>>I THINK WE’RE MOVING TOWARDS THAT. I THINK THE STUDENTS WHO ARE BALANCING ALL
THESE LIFE COMMITMENTS, ALONG WITH THE FIRST MATH TEST, ALONG WITH THE FIRST ENGLISH PAPER
— THOSE OF THE STUDENTS WE ARE MOST PROUD OF AND WHO ARE STARTING TO ACCLIMATE TO THE
CULTURE OF THE COLLEGE AND WHO — WE HAVE A TEAM OF FOLKS WORKING ON PCC CONNECT. THERE IS THIS GROUP OF COUNSELORS AND STAFF
THAT ARE DEDICATED TO UNDERSTANDING, HOW DO WE SCALE OUT THAT 500? THAT 500 IS A HUGE BENCHMARK. HOW DO WE GROW FROM, AND HOW WE DO SO IN AN
INTENTIONAL WAY SO OUR FACULTY FEEL EMPOWERED THROUGH THE USE OF PCC CONNECT AND UNDERSTANDING
THIS IS PART OF THEIR AGENCY TO SUPPORT STUDENTS NOT JUST IN THAT ONE CLASS, BUT AS THEY ARE
NAVIGATING THROUGH PCC. I THINK WE ARE GOING IN A GOOD DIRECTION WITH
THAT.>>THE SINCE I AM GETTING HIS WE HAVE THIS
TREMENDOUS FERTILE SOIL ACROSS CAMPUS. THE TRICK IS FOR THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS, IT
COMES DOWN TO ONE TEACHER AND 30 STUDENTS, HOW DO WE GET THE SEED TO THAT SOIL? HOW DO WE GET THEM THERE WHEN THEY DO NOT
KNOW THE SOIL EXISTS OR THEY ARE RAISING THROUGH LIFE’S CHALLENGES? — RACING THROUGH LIFE’S CHALLENGES? GETTING PROCESSORS — GETTING THE SEED TO
THE FERTILE SOIL SEEMS TO BE THE NUMBER ONE OBJECTIVE THAT WILL BLOW THESE OUT OF THE
WATER AND HELP PEOPLE ALONG THE WAY. TRUSTEE BROWN: I JUST WANTED TO MAKE ONE POINT. FIRST OF ALL, PCC HAS BEEN ON THIS TRACK. IT HAS BEEN ON THIS TRAJECTORY BEFORE THIS
MANDATE CAME TO US. IT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR THE LAST EIGHT YEARS. IT IS REALLY A MAJOR CHANGE. WE HAVE BEEN CHANGING — I SAY WE HAS NOW
I AM — I SAY WE AS THOUGH I AM — I GUESS I AM, CHANGING THE FACE OF THE COLLEGE. IT IS A TRANSFORMATION. NO, WE ARE NOT GOING TO GET FACULTIES OVERNIGHT
TO DO THIS, BUT I THINK 500 PEOPLE THAT ARE ENGAGED IS NOT BAD. ARE WE COMFORTABLE? NO, WE ARE NOT. BUT IT IS A GOOD START. NOW WITH THIS PLAN IN PLACE AND WITH ALL THE
NEW HIRES, I THINK WE WILL EVEN GET BETTER. I REALLY WANT TO COMMEND YOU GUYS FOR THE
HARD WORK YOU ARE DOING WITH OUR NEW PRESIDENT AND WITH THE NEW MENTALITY. I THINK WE ARE GOING TO DO GOOD. I WANT TO REASSURE YOU, I NOTICED PEOPLE TALK
ABOUT WHAT WE ARE DOING HERE. NEXT YEAR I HOPE WE ARE 1000.>>THANK YOU.>>I HAVE A COUPLE QUICK DETAILED QUESTIONS,
IF YOU CAN GO BACKWARDS IN YOUR SLIDES. FOR EXAMPLE, YOU HAVE THE METRICS FOR THE
AFRICAN-AMERICANS, FOR THE FOSTER YOUTH, AND FOR THE VETERANS. LET’S START WITH THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN MALES. I AM NOT TAKING THAT GROUP IN PARTICULAR — PICKING
THAT GROUP IN PARTICULAR. IT SAYS FOR BLACK AND AMERICAN MALES, THE
DOTTED LINE INDICATES THERE IS AN EQUITY GAP FOR TRANSFER LEVEL MATH AND ENGLISH AND COMPLETION. SOMEHOW ON TRANSFER, WE ARE ON TRACK. IT’S GOOD TO KNOW THAT OUR BLACK OR AFRICAN-AMERICAN
MALES ARE AT THE TRANSFER LEVEL, BUT ARE NOT SURE HOW THEY MAGICALLY JUMP UP IN THE GREEN
IF WE HAVE THE GAP ALL THE WAY ALONG. IT IS THE SAME QUESTION FOR THE OTHER CATEGORIES
I MENTIONED. IF YOU GO TO THE FOSTER YOUTH, LET’S SEE — IT
IS THE SAME THING. FOSTER YOUTH, ENROLLMENT, THERE IS A GAP,
RETENTION, A GAP, TRANSFER LEVEL ENGLISH AND MATH, A GAP. FORTUNATELY WE GET OUR COMPLETION LEVEL TRANSFER
UP TO PAR. NO EQUITY GAP. JUST CURIOUS HOW THAT HAPPENS.>>THAT IS AN EXCELLENT QUESTION. ONE OF THE THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND TOO IS WE
ARE RECEIVING DATA FROM THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE THAT TAKES INTO ACCOUNT STUDENTS AT ANY AND
ALL POINTS IN THE CALIFORNIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE SYSTEM. IT IS NOT THAT THEY ARE ALWAYS WITH US THE
ENTIRE TIME, OR THEY MIGHT HAVE BEEN AT ANOTHER COLLEGE AND COME TO US AND MIGHT HAVE IDENTIFIED
WITH ONE MARKER AT A PREVIOUS COLLEGE, AND HERE THEY DIDN’T MARK THAT, BUT IT IS STILL
CARRYING FOR THEM. ALL OF THAT TO SAY, THE DATA IS VERY COMPLICATED. IT IS COMPLICATED DATA WE HAVE RECEIVED WITHIN
THE PAST THREE MONTHS OR SO. WHAT YOU ARE BRINGING UP IS EXACTLY THE TYPE
OF INQUIRY QUESTION WE HAVE WRITTEN INTO THE PLAN. WE NEED TO STOP AND LOOK AND TRY TO UNDERSTAND
MORE ABOUT WHERE IT IS WE ARE SEEING THERE ARE NOT EQUITY GAPS EXPERIENCED VERSUS WHERE
THEY ARE. AND WITHIN GROUPS. I THINK THAT IS A HELPFUL WAY TO LOOK AT THIS
DATA, AS HE REMINDED US, THAT IS T IS ABOUT UNDERSTANDING THE COMMUNITIES OF STUDENTS
WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY COLLEGE. IF THE DATA IS TELLING US THAT AFRICAN-AMERICAN
MALES ARE NOT EXPERIENCING A GAP IN TRANSFER, BUT AFRICAN-AMERICAN FEMALES ARE, THEN WE
NEED TO TAKE A MOMENT AND THINK ABOUT WHAT DIFFERENT SUPPORTS ARE AVAILABLE AND HOW WE
AUGMENT OR AMPLIFY THEM IN DIFFERENT WAYS. ALL THIS TO SAY THERE IS MORE INQUIRY THAT
NEEDS TO BE DONE. SINCE THIS IS NOT ENTIRELY LOCAL COLLEGE DATA,
BUT SYSTEMWIDE DATA PROVIDED TO OUR COLLEGE, I THINK IT MAKES THE INQUIRY THAT MUCH MORE
NEEDED, BUT ALSO POTENTIALLY EXCITING.>>SO THIS DATA IS SPECIFIC TO PCC, OR IS
THIS SYSTEMWIDE? THE CHARTS YOU HAVE SHOWN US HERE TONIGHT.>>THIS IS THE DATE OF THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE
HAS PROVIDED SPECIFIC TO OUR PCC STUDENTS.>>IT IS FROM THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE SPECIFIC
TO OUR STUDENTS.>>YES.>>WHERE DO THEY GET THEIR DATA. FROM US, RIGHT? [LAUGHTER]>>THIS IS DAN, OUR RESEARCHER FOR EQUITY.>>I DID NOT MEAN TO CUT YOU OFF.>>IF I COULD EXPLAIN — THEY RECEIVE DATA
FROM US, BUT THE CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE HAS DATA WE DON’T HAVE. THEY LOOK ACROSS THE SYSTEM AT ALL THE COMMUNITY
COLLEGES TO SEE WHERE A STUDENT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A STUDENT AT ONE POINT. A STUDENT COULD HAVE GONE TO GLENDALE AND
IDENTIFIED AS A VETERAN, BUT CAME HERE AND DID NOT IDENTIFY AS SUCH UNDER APPLICATION.>>THE STATE AGAINST COMPLICATED BECAUSE OUR
— THIS DATA GETS COMPLICATED BECAUSE OUR STUDENTS ATTEND MORE THAN ONE COMMUNITY COLLEGE.>>YES. THIS IS NOT COHORT DATA, SO WE ARE NOT TRACKING
ONE STUDENT THROUGH THEIR ENTIRE LIFECYCLE. THE IMAGE AT THE TOP IS REALLY GOOD DEMONSTRATE
THESE METRICS ARE TRYING TO CAPTURE STUDENTS AT DIFFERENT POINTS, BUT WE ARE LOOKING AT
A SNAPSHOT. FOR EXAMPLE, IN 2017, THESE WERE THE NUMBER
OF STUDENTS TRANSFERRED. THAT DOES NOT MEAN THOSE ARE THE SAME NUMBER
OF STUDENTS WHO STARTED OFF WITH ENROLLMENT.>>THAT NEXT SENSE.>>JUST BECAUSE IT IS FUN TO CONFUSE EVERYBODY,
THE VISION FOR SUCCESS GOALS — THE VISION FOR SUCCESS GOALS THAT YOU APPROVED
LAST MONTH WERE BASED ON A DIFFERENT SET OF DATA. JUST SAYING.>>THANKS. [LAUGHTER]>>ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS? YOU HAVE HAD A LOT OF DISCUSSION ON THIS ITEM,
BUT WE NEED A LOT. TWO WE HAVE A MOTION?>>I WOULD LIKE TO SAY I REALLY APPRECIATE
THE ANALYSIS THAT WENT INTO THIS. I CAN SEE THERE IS A LOT OF THOUGHT THAT HAS
GONE INTO THIS. I WANT US TO CONTINUE TO THINK ABOUT THE URGENCY
OF CLOSING THE GAP. I THINK IT IS GREAT PCC HAS HAD SUCCESS ON
THIS TRAJECTORY. AT THE SAME TIME, I FEEL LIKE WE DON’T HAVE
ANOTHER EIGHT YEARS TO HAVE A STUDENT EXPERIENCE THESE EQUITY GAPS. I COMMEND AND THE TEAM AND THE PRESIDENT IN
HAVING THIS BE A PRIORITY FOR THE COLLEGE AND CERTAINLY FOR THE BOARD. I AM VERY COGNIZANT OF THE URGENCY IN ENSURING
MORE STUDENTS ARE GRADUATING, TRANSFERRING, AND PARTICULARLY STUDENTS OF COLOR AND OTHER
DISENFRANCHISED STUDENTS.>>WAS THERE A MOTION?>>YES, I MOTION WE APPROVE THE EQUITY –>>MOVED AND SECONDED. ALL IN FAVOR BY SAYING AYE? MOTION CARRIED UNANIMOUSLY. — MOTION CARRIES UNANIMOUSLY. WE HAVE MADE IT THROUGH THE ACTION ITEMS. WE ARE ONTO INFORMATION ITEMS. WE WILL START WITH OUR SUPERINTENDENT PRESIDENT’S
REPORT.>>COMMENCEMENT ON FRIDAY WAS A HUGE HIT. WE HAD A CAPACITY CROWD OF 5400 AT ROBINSON
STADIUM WITH ABOUT 400 TO 500 FOLKS IN OUR OVERFLOW AREA. WE HAD A HUGE DEMAND. NEARLY 1200 GRADUATES ACCEPTED THEIR DIPLOMAS
THAT NIGHT, AND OUR FINAL TALLY INDICATES 3265 STUDENTS EARNED 6206 DEGREES AND 381
CERTIFICATES IN THE 2018-2019 ACADEMIC YEAR. WE SHOULD BE VERY PROUD OF THOSE NUMBERS,
ESPECIALLY IN THE STUDENT CENTER FUNDING FORMULA CONTEXT. AS YOU KNOW FROM ALL OF OUR CONVERSATION,
WE WERE ABLE TO GET THE DRAFTING BUILDING ON TO THE LIST OF FUNDED PROJECTS AT 80%. AS I MENTIONED, WE ARE LOOKING AT INSTITUTING
A FACILITIES COMMITTEE AT THE BOARD TO START TALKING ABOUT WHAT FACILITIES MEANS AND TO
HELP US WITH OUR EDUCATIONAL MASTER PLAN. A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO HELPED ADVOCATE
TO MAKE THIS POSSIBLE, INCLUDING LETTERS FROM ADAM SCHIFF AND JUDY CHU. I KNOW OUR TRUSTEES ARE HELPING US. WE HAD CCLC IN OUR CORNER, AS WELL AS THE
CHANCELLOR’S OFFICE, AND OUR LOBBYIST, AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, JACK SCOTT. AS BOBBY ABRAMS LIKED TO SAY, IT IS JACK SCOTT,
JACKPOT, BECAUSE HE WAS AWESOME. WE HAVE ALREADY HAD OUR BUDGET HIGHLIGHTS,
SO I WON’T GO THERE. WE HAVE HAD A BUSY WEEK. IT COMES FROM A DELEGATION FROM SENEGAL. TRUSTEE BROWN AND DR. BELL WERE INVOLVED IN THE PLANNING. THIS IS THE CITY OF PASADENA’S FIRST SISTER
CITY IN THE CONTINENT OF AFRICA. I WAS FORTUNATE TO BE INVITED. I ATTENDED THE LUNCHEON AT FLEMINGS ON SATURDAY. VERY NICE. VERY TASTY. JUST SAYING. THE DELEGATION ACTUALLY CAME TO OUR EXECUTIVE
COMMITTEE MEETING ON MONDAY MORNING. WE TOOK A LITTLE BREAK IN THE ACTION. WE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO CHAT A LITTLE BIT. THERE WAS AN EVENT YESTERDAY AFTERNOON THAT
TRUSTEE BROWN AND I ATTENDED. WE THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO GIVE THIS BIG
CERTIFICATE AND BIG PRESENTATION — DIDN’T WORK OUT THAT WAY. IT WAS GREAT. WE GOT TO TAKE A PICTURE WITH THE MAYOR. MOVING ON, PASADENA’S SECOND SELECTION FOR
THE CITY ONE COMMON STORYBOOK CONCEPT AS A TIE TO PASADENA CITY COLLEGE. A MODERN RETELLING OF THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY
FINN, WRITTEN BY AN L.A. AUTHOR, FEATURES ILLUSTRATIONS BY A PCC STUDENT, A STUDENT
IN THE SCREENPRINTING PROGRAM WORKING ON A CERTIFICATE IN GRAPHIC COMMUNICATIONS. HE PRODUCED THE BLACK AND WHITE ILLUSTRATIONS
FOR THE NOVEL. OUR SUMMER SESSION STARTED TODAY. OUR ENROLLMENTS ARE UP OVER LAST YEAR. PAR HEADCOUNT IS ABOVE 500 AND OUR ENROLLMENT
IS ABOUT 700. I WANT TO SAY WHILE WE ARE SITTING HERE, I
WAS FORWARDED INFORMATION. WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE THAT?>>TONIGHT YOU APPROVED ANOTHER ADT IN GLOBAL
STUDIES. WE HAVE HAD RECENTLY OF THE — TWO OF THE
ADT’S YOU APPROVED, ONE IN SOCIAL JUSTICE — BIOLOGY WAS APPROVED HERE, IT HAS NOT BEEN
APPROVED AT THE STATE OFFICE. ANYWAY, ONCE ALL OF THOSE ARE APPROVED AT
THE STATE OFFICE, WE WILL HAVE 31 ADT’S. IT IS POSSIBLE TO HAVE 40 IN THE STATE. THAT WILL PUT US SECOND IN THE STATE IN REGARD
TO THE NUMBER OF ADT’S AVAILABLE. THE COLLEGE OF THE SEQUOIAS HAS 32. AS I ALSO POINTED OUT, THE NINE THAT ARE STILL
POSSIBLE, EIGHT OF THOSE WE CAN HAVE. AFTER I SENT THE TEXT TO HER, I SENT IN EMAIL
TO MY DEANS, ASKING THEM TO START WORKING WITH FACULTY IN THEIR DIVISION TO GET THOSE
ADDITIONAL EIGHT. THE ONLY ONE WE PROBABLY CAN’T HAVE IS AGRICULTURE
OR ANIMAL SCIENCE.>>WELL, I DON’T KNOW. HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL. WE’VE GOT THOSE BIG LAWNS OUT THERE. I’M JUST KIDDING. THAT IS WHERE TERRY WANTS HIS HOPS FOR BEER
MAKING. [LAUGHTER] THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THAT, WE ARE
A STATEWIDE LEADER WHEN IT COMES TO ADT’S. THIS IS WHY, BECAUSE WE HAVE SO MANY POSSIBILITIES
FOR OUR STUDENTS.>>FROM THE STANDPOINT OF THE VISION FOR SUCCESS
GOALS, WE HAVE BEEN LEADING THE STATE IN THE AWARDING OF ADT’S. WE ARE SOMETIMES TIED FOR SECOND, BUT THE
COLLEGES WHO HAVE BEAT US AND MORE ADT — HAD MORE ADT’S THAN US. THAT IS NOT TRUE. WE HAVE PASSED BOTH OF THOSE COLLEGES.>>YOU ARE NOT NAMING NAMES?>>WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT? WE KNOW, SO THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS.>>SHARED GOVERNANCE. WE WOULD START WITH ART STUDENT TRUSTEE, BUT
SHE LEFT FOR A CLASS. OUR ELECT STUDENT TRUSTEE HAS MADE IT THROUGH
THE ENTIRE MEETING. NEW TRUSTEE, WE WILL SEE YOU IN THE JULY MEETING
AND LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING YOUR REPORT. WE WILL START WITH CLASSIFIED SENATE.>>TWO WEEKS AGO THE SENATE HAD AN ICE CREAM
SOCIAL. THAT WENT WELL. LAST WEEK, SI X CLASSIFIED AND DID — FOUR
OF THOSE SIX WERE BRAND-NEW. THEY LOOK FORWARD TO NEXT YEAR, WHICH WILL
BE IN REAL ESTATE. THIS IS THE LAST YEAR THEY WILL HAVE IT THERE,
BECAUSE WE HAVE OUTGROWN THE VENUE.>>THAT IS A GOOD PROBLEM TO HAVE.>>MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION.>>I HAVE A LONG ONE TONIGHT, SORRY. JUST WANT TO START WITH THAT. I WANT TO GIVE A FEW SHUTOUTS, REBECCA FOR
HER AMAZING LEADERSHIP IN ALL THINGS COMMITMENT. HER TEAM DID AN AMAZING JOB SELECTING STUDENT
SPEAKERS. A THANK YOU FOR HER LEADERSHIP IN ORGANIZING
OUR GRADS. A BIG THANK YOU TO THE DOCTOR FOR HER WORK
ON STUDENT EQUITY. MYSELF SERVING ON THE COMMITTEE, HAS DONE
GREAT WORK WITH THAT. I KNOW THAT PLAN WILL SERVE AS A GUIDE FOR
FUTURE ACTIVITIES. THIS WORK IS ACTUALLY ALREADY HAPPENING WITH
THE HELP OF DEANS TO HELP ENSURE STUDENTS GET STARTED OFF RIGHT. THEY HAVE HELPED NEARLY 700 FIRST-YEAR STUDENTS
NAVIGATE CLASSES IN A WAY THAT MAKES STUDENTS FEEL EXCITED AND SUPPORTED WHILE ENTERING
PCC. THANKS TO THEM AND THEIR TEAMS FOR LEADERSHIP
AND COLLABORATION. NEXT I LIKE TO WELCOME — I’D WOULD LIKE TO
WELCOME THE NEW DIRECTOR OF ADMISSIONS AND RECORDS, AND ON THE SAME NOTE, GIVE A BIG
THANK YOU TO DENISE CARTER, WHO SERVED AS INTERIM DIRECTOR FOR THE LAST YEAR. A THANK YOU TO THE DEAN WHO SERVED HIS LAST
SEMESTER AS DEAN OF VISUAL ARTS AND STUDIES, AS WELL AS RECOGNIZE THE DEAN WHO IS ALSO
SET TO RETIRE. IN CLOSING, I WANT TO GIVE A BIG THANK YOU
TO THE MANAGERS WHO REPRESENT THE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION FOR A YEAR OF GREAT SERVICE. I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING THEM ALL AT OUR NEXT
ANNUAL RETREAT JULY 19.>>ACADEMIC SENATE.>>I WOULD LIKE TO ECHO TITO’S SENTIMENT,
THANKING THE ENTIRE STUDENT SUCCESS COMMITTEE ON THEIR WORK ON THE EQUITY PLAN. IT WAS A LOT OF DATA TO DIVE THROUGH, AND
THEY DID AN AMAZING JOB WITH THE INITIATIVES THEY HELPED BRING TO LIGHT ON CAMPUS. I WOULD LIKE TO CONGRATULATE THE NEW FACULTY
APPROVED FOR HIGHER IN THIS SESSION TODAY — FOR HIRE IN THIS SESSION TODAY. I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT RICHARD, OUR NEWLY
HIRED COSMETOLOGY FULL-TIME FACULTY MEMBER. THIS IS NOT ONLY AN ATTEMPT TO REVITALIZE
THE COSMETOLOGY PROGRAM, BUT ALSO BECAUSE HE HAS SERVED AS A SENATOR, AN ADJUNCT SENATOR
AT LARGE FOR THE LAST YEAR. HE HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN THE CAMPUS COMMUNITY. I AM DELIGHTED HE WILL BE JOINING US FULL-TIME. I WOULD LIKE TO RECOGNIZE THE RETIRING FACULTY
APPROVED AT TONIGHT’S MEETING. HE WILL BE JOINING HIS WIFE IN RETIREMENT. SHE RETIRED A FEW YEARS BACK. — A HUGE LOSS IN TERMS OF A RESOURCE FOR
THIS COLLEGE. SHE WILL BE DEEPLY MISSED. I AM DELIGHTED TO HEAR SHE WILL CONTINUE TO
SERVE VETERANS IN HER NEW CAPACITY. DR. KEITH, A VALUED MATH FACULTY MEMBER. HE IS RESPECTED IN HIS COMMITTEES, PARTICULARLY
THE EQUIVALENCY COMMITTEE. HE IS A STABILIZED SOURCE OF MEASURED JUDGMENT
IN HIS EQUIVALENCY POSITIONS. CHRIS OUT OF GRAPHIC COMING OCCASIONS. SHE HAS SERVED IN THE SENATE FOR MANY YEARS. SHE WILL BE VERY MUCH MISSED. WAYNE FROM AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY, WHO HAS
BEEN WITH US FOR 30 YEARS. HE IS A GREAT TEAM PLAYER. HE HAS MENTOR EVERY SINGLE TENURED EQUITY
MEMBER IN THAT PROGRAM. IT IS A HUGE TESTAMENT TO THE STRENGTH OF
THE PROGRAM, HIS STRENGTH AS A FACULTY MEMBER AND DIVISION LEADER. HIS GUIDANCE WILL BE VERY MUCH MISSED. WE HAVE THE SENATE BANQUET AWARDS ON JUNE
6. IT WAS SO LONG AGO. AT THE BANQUET, WE ISSUED SEVERAL AWARDS I
HAVE TO MENTION. FIRST THE AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING TEACHING TO
BRIAN GONZALES, THEN MARILYN JOHNSON FOR HER OUTSTANDING SUPPORT OF OUR STUDENTS AND TEACHING
EFFORTS ON CAMPUS. THE RALPH STORY AWARD WAS AWARDED TO ROB FROM
THE ENGLISH DIVISION FOR HIS EXEMPLARY SERVICE TO FACULTY AND STUDENTS. THE 10 PLUS ONE AWARDS, WHICH HONORS THE CONSERVATION
FACULTY MAKE TO THE GOVERNANCE PROCESS. THERE WERE THREE WINNERS FOR THEIR WORK ON
THE CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION COMMITTEE. THAT IS THE HARDEST WORKING COMMITTEE ON THIS
CAMPUS. THEY DO AN INCREDIBLE JOB OF MAKING SURE OUR
PROGRAMS AND COURSES ARE UPDATED. THEY RUN A REALLY GREAT COMMITTEE. WE ALSO HAD THE ACADEMIC SENATE SCHOLARSHIPS
FOR OUR STUDENTS. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEE. AND OUR STUDENTS WHO WERE AWARDED. THE RECIPIENTS OF THE ACADEMIC SENATE SCHOLARSHIPS. THAT IS IT.>>TRUSTEE REPORTS. WE WILL START ON MY LEFT.>>IT WAS MY FIRST COMMENCEMENT AS A TRUSTEE,
AND WAS A REAL COMPELLING TIME FOR ME TO BE ON THE PLATFORM. TWO MOMENTS STOOD OUT FOR ME. THE FIRST WAS WHEN THE FACULTY CAME OUT AND
LINED UP AND APPLAUDED ALL THE GRADUATES THAT CAME THROUGH. I THOUGHT, WHAT A PROUD MOMENT FOR THE FACULTY
TO SEE THEIR STUDENTS AND GET THEIR DEGREE. THE SECOND MOVEMENT WAS WHEN ONE OF THE STUDENT
SPEAKERS SPOKE ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCE AS A FORMER GANG MEMBER AND INCARCERATED PERSON WHO WAS
ABLE TO ATTEND OXFORD UNIVERSITY, AND THEN WILL BE TRANSFERRING TO UC BERKELEY. IN THE DAILY BUSTLE OF THINGS, I THINK WE
FORGET STUDENT SUCCESS IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL. THE COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY REALLY CRYSTALLIZED
THAT FOR ME, THAT WE ARE HERE TO SEE STUDENTS THRIVE AND EXCEL. I WANT TO SAY I AM SO HONORED AND PRIVILEGED
TO SERVE AS YOUR TRUSTEE, AND THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY. I WOULD LIKE TO ADD A COUPLE MORE STATISTICS
TO THE COMMENCEMENT STATISTICS. 4,900 VIEWS ON YOUTUBE, TWO DISLIKES. [LAUGHTER] SO THE TWO PEOPLE THAT DISLIKE
THE PASADENA GRADUATION CEREMONY, WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHO YOU ARE, MAYBE SHAME YOU
A LITTLE BIT. [LAUGHTER] CONGRATULATIONS. IT HAS BEEN A TERRIFIC YEAR. THANK YOU TO EACH OF YOU FOR WHAT YOU DO SERVE
THIS GREAT COLLEGE.>>ON MY RIGHT, TRUSTEE MARTIN? TRUSTEE MARTIN: IT IS A FABULOUS GRADUATION,
BUT I IN PARTICULAR APPRECIATED THE COMMENTS ABOUT FLAG DAY, PCC GRADUATION. I THOUGHT OUR PRESIDENT DID AN EXCEPTIONAL
THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER KUDOS TO THE OTHER SPEAKERS, BUT I THOUGHT YOU TO DID A GREAT
JOB.>>I HAVE NOTHING SPECIAL TO REPORT. MY JUST ADD THAT OUR PRESIDENT SHOOK 500 STUDENT
HANDS WITH GREAT ENTHUSIASM. I THINK IT IS A RECORD. THEY SHOULD RUN FOR ELECTED OFFICE.>>NO. [LAUGHTER]>>I’M GOING TO STALL FOR TIME FOR TRUSTEE
BROWN.>>SHE DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING, SHE TOLD ME
TO TELL YOU.>>JUST TO CONCLUDE, THE HOUR IS LATE AND
THE ACCOLADES HAVE BEEN LONG. ONE OF THE MOST REWARDING THINGS TO ME AS
A TRUSTEE IS THIS TIME OF YEAR AT GRADUATION. NOT ONLY TO ATTEND THE MAIN EVENT, BUT WHAT
I CALL THE BREAKOUT SESSIONS. THAT IS WHERE YOU REALLY GET A CHANCE TO LEARN
MORE ABOUT THE STUDENTS AND THEIR SUCCESS AND, IN SOME CASES, THE OBSTACLES THEY HAVE
ACHIEVED TO ACHIEVE THAT SUCCESS. IT IS REALLY REWARDING TO SEE THE WORK OF
OUR FACULTY AND THE STAFF THAT SUPPORT THEM TO MAKE THAT ALL HAPPEN. IT MAKES US ALL PROUD. I WILL LEAVE IT AT THAT BECAUSE EVERYONE HAS
ALREADY COMMENTED FURTHER. AGAIN, I JUST ECHO THE SENTIMENTS OF OTHERS. DR. JONAS, THE SWAT TEAM YOU PUT TOGETHER TO SAVE
THE FUNDING FOR THE NEW BUILDING IS JUST AWESOME.>>THANK YOU.>>AND I SALUTE YOU FOR MOBILIZING A LOBBYIST
TO ASSIST AND BRING IN THE A-TEAM AND HEADING UP THERE PERSONALLY TO LEAD AND GET INVOLVED
IN THOSE EFFORTS. THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH. I HAVE NO FURTHER COMMENTS. WE HAVE ANY PROPOSED FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS?>>I DO. AS PREVIOUSLY INDICATED, I HOPE WE CAN I ASK
THE DOCTOR AND HIS CREW, OR WHOEVER YOU WANT, TO EXPLAIN TO TRUSTEES HOW WE DECIDE WHAT
CLASSES WE ARE OFFERING. AT THE END OF THE DAY, HAVING FULL CLASSES
TO MAXIMIZE THAT RATIO SO STUDENTS CAN GET IN AND GET THROUGH PCC AND ONTO THEIR GOALS. THE KEY TO THAT IS IN WHAT CLASSES ARE OFFERED,
WHEN THEY ARE OFFERED, AND WHO IS OFFERING THEM. ALL ABOUT SCIENCE AND ART YOU WERE WORKING
THROUGH BEARD I HOPE YOU CAN GET IN ON THAT AGENDA.>>ANY OTHER FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS? NOTHING TO REPORT? NO FURTHER BUSINESS. MEETING ADJOURNED.>>I WOULD LIKE TO ADJOURN IN MEMORY OF POINT
HILLS AND SMOTHER — HOTY HILLSMAN’S MOTHER. THEY PASSED AWAY AND HE STILL CAME IN AND
DID HIS TRUSTEE DUTIES. BEING HERE AT TODAY’S MEETING. I WOULD LIKE US TO ADJOURN IN MEMORY.>>I THANK YOU SO MUCH. AND JUST TO SAY A WORD ABOUT MY MOM, THIS
WAS A WOMAN OF THE WORLD WAR II GENERATION. SHE MARRIED YOUNG TO MY FATHER, A WAR VETERAN. SHE WENT TO BERNARD FOR A YEAR AT THE UNIVERSITY
OF CHICAGO FOR A YEAR, SHE RAN OUT OF MONEY AND DID NOT HAVE A CHANCE TO COMPLETE HER
EDUCATION UNTIL LATER ON, SHE ATTENDED THE GENERAL STUDIES PROGRAM AT COLUMBIA AND GRADUATED
FROM COLLEGE RENT THE SAME TIME I DID.>>THAT’S AWESOME.>>IT WAS A GREAT STORY OF WOMEN OF THAT GENERATION. I KNOW SHE WILL REST IN PEACE.>>SO NOTED, THE MEETING WILL BE ADJOURNED
IN HER HONOR. AND OUR CONDOLENCES AS WELL. THANK YOU, EVERYBODY.>>THANK YOU. ♪
