Strategic Planning:
Cynthia Deutsch provided an update on Strategic Planning and some Equity focused initiatives that are in the works. She has been sending out Weekly Equity Chronicles to provide small bits of equity related data to the campus community and these have been well-received. These are sent out each Thursday to share both equity related challenges and successes. She is putting together an Ad Hoc Strategic Planning committee representing all College constituencies to delve deeper into these topics and review comments and suggestions as well as the survey responses she is receiving from her outreach. Anyone who is interested in joining this effort should reach out to Cynthia via email.

Raylene Cope moved and Cynthia Deutsch seconded and the meeting was adjourned at 1:11 PM.
