Issues to be Addressed by the Committee during the 2020-2021 academic year:
Jim Tuite asked Kris Ogden to explain the purpose of the committee to Elizabeth to help with her new role as chair. Kris stated this committee was formed during a time when we were facing some challenges during our accreditation. She stated this committee discussed administrative evaluations, faculty evaluations, student, and course evaluations. Any reports and updates on any evaluations and assessments are reported to and discussed through this committee.

Kris announced that at the end of the last meeting, there was a little concern about instructor/student course evaluations. At this time, we have had to put a pause on the student and course evaluation process, due to the situation we are having with our classes. She is going to have to make revisions to the process and deadlines of these evaluations. Hopefully this committee would be able to give some ideas which we would then work with the program heads to determine the best way to handle the evaluation process.

Kris reported we are still waiting on the outcome of our Fifth-Year Interim Review. There were two items that were being questioned. We should have the outcome by our next meeting in October. By then we should also have more solid agenda items.

Jim Tuite suggested to Elizabeth that it would be a good idea to send a notice out a few days before the next meeting asking for agenda items. He stated that Kris would be able to help her with the agenda since the committee handle evaluations and assessments. Jim congratulated Elizabeth in her new role as chair.
None at this time.

Our next meeting will be October 6, 2020 via Videoconference.

Muriel Mickles made the motion to adjourn the meeting, and Cynthia Deutsch seconded the motion. The motion was unanimously approved, and the meeting ended at 1:30 p.m.
