Collins Friddle, Jessica Hogan, and Kevin Riley (Alt. Recorder)
Jim Tuite announced Jessica Hogan was teaching a class at CVCC’s Bedford Center center and Kevin Riley had a previous appointment off-campus.
Jim Tuite announced, per the recent email from Dr. Capps, to reduce operational costs, he would no longer bring copies of the previous meeting’s minutes. Meeting minutes are now being uploaded to Communiqué well in advance of the next scheduled meeting and can be reviewed there. Jim Tuite asked if anyone had any changes to the meeting minutes from August 20, 2019. There were no proposed changes. Jim Tuite made the motion to approve the minutes, and Cynthia Deutsch seconded the motion. All were in favor of the minutes.
Jim Tuite discussed the outcome of the National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement Report. He explained how the college is working on getting students registered to vote. He thanked Jill Markwood for making posters to promote voter registration last Fall. The NSLVE report showed a 40.7% voting rate in 2018 among CVCC students. This rate was above the national average and an 18.3% increase over 2014. Even though there was a decrease in student enrollment, there was an increase in student registration and voting in every reported category. The NSLVE report is one objective tool with which we can measure student civic engagement.
Kris Ogden announced that since the last meeting the reports in preparation for the October 21-23, 2019 SACSCOC visit had been sent.
She still has no details on the visit, but CVCC should be ready for the SACSCOC on-site visit in October. The visit will include peer groups focusing on the Jefferson Forest Early College, E. C. Glass Dual-Enrollment, and the Criminal Justice programs. Kris Ogden announced how she appreciates everyone’s help getting ready for the SACSCOC visit.
Jim Lemons announced that our academic divisions are working to assess dual-enrolled adjunct faculty. He discussed the three-step assessment process, which includes the following:
- In-class observation
- View syllabi
- Faculty feedback from student evaluations
Jim Lemons said his division is pulling files to make sure the three-step process is completed.
Muriel Mickles discussed bringing dual-enrolled faculty to CVCC on September 13, 2019, to meet their faculty mentors and observed that it appeared to be a productive collaboration. Cindy Wallin stated that she believes this event enabled the dual-enrolled faculty to feel more like they are part of CVCC.
Jim Tuite announced there would be an Ad Astra meeting on October 8, 2019.
Jim Tuite asked the committee if anyone had any new business. There is no new business at this time.
Our next meeting will be November 5, 2019.
Jim Lemons made the motion to adjourn the meeting, and Muriel Mickles seconded the motion. All were in favor of the adjournment motion, and the meeting was adjourned at 1:20 p.m.
