Please watch the Decentering Whiteness in Pathways Part I webinar from CUE, which will help inform our discussions about HomeBases. Please come prepared to share a "golden line" from the webinar--in other words, a particular insight, fact, or perspective that resonated with you/surprised you/that you'd like to consider further. (I know there's not a lot of time between when you're seeing this agenda and our meeting. Please do your best - the webinar is about an hour long). Frank Kobayashi, Marianne Harris, & Sarah Lehmann The webinar called Decentering Whiteness in Guided Pathways CUE Webinar Part I was reviewed by Council members. The "golden lines" shared with the group were heartfelt and insightful. Discussion included a possible revisiting of the HomeBase vision and a review of the Resources Panel Charter.
HomeBases discussion. At our last meeting, while reviewing the HomeBases Resource Panel Charter draft, we realized we'd like an opportunity for a broader and deeper discussion about HomeBases, including how HomeBases considers equity and supports DI students, its goals, vision, broader structural changes needed to ensure its success, the role of instructional faculty, any concerns or questions our areas have, and more. We asked Council members to take these questions back to their areas and come prepared to share feedback. Please review the attached notes from last meeting, which includes a distillation of the key questions we raised. Frank Kobayashi Discussion about how to incorporate and infuse equity into the vision and goals of the HomeBases was heard.
Review the charter for the second HomeBases Resource Panel. Based on our previous discussions, what recommendations do we have for A draft of the HomeBase Resource Panel Charter was reviewed with the focus in mind. Decentering whiteness and closing equity gaps was the intention: How are we measuring this? Experiences with students in HomeBases were expressed. Structural change and resources for the HomeBases are being questioned. Not enough staff to provide services to students could hinder future progress of HomeBases. Other comments included: 1) "gaps" reflects deficit thinking; 2) how are we reaching students?; 3) problems assigning students to HomeBases; 4) need strategies to engage faculty; 5) how can HomeBases be designed to implement our Equity and Professional Development Plans?
(First Reading) Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) 2.0 Charter. Review the draft SEM 2.0 Charter. What suggestions or recommendations do we have for what should be included in this charter? Enrollment at ARC and District has decreased over time. ARC is struggling to get qualitative data (e.g. drop dates, exit interviews) to know how to improve student retention. The second reading will be on March 1. 2022.
