Agenda Items:
Knowledge Center Update (MARSHALL)
Loretta distributed a list of mandatory training for all state employees which must be completed within 90 days of hire. She stated the majority of CVCC’s current employees have never completed this (one-time) training, and the President’s Cabinet decided they will be required to do so within 90 days of receiving an “everyone” email concerning this training from Loretta. Also on the list was mandatory training for supervisors/managers (defined as anyone who is responsible for the evaluation of an employee).
The President’s Cabinet discussed the need to have some type of consequences to ensure that all training has been completed.
Common Syllabus Elements (McGEE)
David M. distributed a list of 10 common elements required for all course syllabi here at CVCC. He stated each faculty member, either full-time or adjunct, is required to present a syllabus to their dean at the beginning of each course taught and must contain those common elements. David M. stated the deans have reviewed and approved the list. The President’s Cabinet also approved the list as written.
Multi-Year Appointments (SYKES)
Dianne distributed information on the new procedure on multi-year appointments for the full-time faculty. The recommendation for a three or five-year appointment will be based entirely on the faculty’s yearly evaluation from the dean. Dianne stated once the recommendation is approved by the dean, it will then require the approval of the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student Services, Ad Hoc committee, and finally the president. David M. stated he feels the faculty will be in favor of this procedure instead of the lengthy portfolio that had been required in the past. He will discuss this at the Faculty Association meeting tomorrow.
