HomeBases Resource Panel II: First Reading This semester, Frank Kobayashi and Jeff Stephenson will lead a second HomeBases Resource Panel, following up on the work they did last semester. (Their final report is attached for reference). This second resource panel will focus on how the HomeBases can become more integrated into the organizational structure of the College (or how the organizational structure may change to align with HomeBases). The Council requested to have input early on as this charter was written. What feedback/changes/suggestions do we have for the draft charter? Feel free to comment directly in the (attached) document.

A rough draft of a Charter was reviewed and feedback given about project scope and purpose, organizational structure, additional options, Program Review, need for qualitative data, focus groups, and partnerships. Chair encouraged all feedback to be recorded on the document as edits., and for all Council members to gather feedback from their areas on what their questions, concerns, goals, and hopes for HomeBases are.
