CALL TO ORDER:               The meeting was called to order by the president, Steve Spear, at 2:00 p.m., in Room SU-30.

 

Approval of Minutes:         The minutes of September 15, 2003, were approved as amended.

                                                The minutes of September 29, 2003, were approved as amended.

 

Motion 1                                MSC Thompson, Cater: To suspend the Agenda and move to Executive Session.

 

                                                Open Session resumed at 2:55 p.m.

 

Motion 2                                MSC Dowd, Barkley: To extend the meeting.

 

Motion 3                                MSC Barkley, Cater: To suspend the Agenda and discuss action item D, Senate Email Voting.

 

                                                Chris Norcross provided Senators with information on the software used in creating ballots for both Senate elections and elections generated to the entire faculty by the Elections Committee. The software for the program is run through the Academic Technology web server and handled in the database in Information Services. This provides the opportunity to keep the list of faculty up-to-date. For each election, faculty members are sent an invitation to vote along with a password.  He added that modifications were made to the software that whoever is creating and keeping track of the ballot(s) were not able to view who has voted or how they voted. In response to a question regarding the security of online voting, Chris Norcross stated that the biggest flaw in the system is that it relies on email to distribute ballots, which isn’t really a security issue. Whether faculty members vote electronically or by paper ballots, no system will be 100% perfect at all times.

 

                                                Senate members discussed whether other colleges are using such a system and what their experiences are with voting. Tamara Weintraub offered to contact the Statewide Academic Senate in an attempt to obtain more information on this issue.

ADA Replacement/

Attrition:                                Berta Cuaron updated Senate members on the ongoing discussions by the members of the Instructional Planning Council in relation to the Academic Department Assistants (ADA) positions. The members of the council are carefully reviewing the current workload of each ADA, the support that they provide for academic departments, and coming up with a formula and standards for each position. Departments as well as ADAs are providing input as the process moves forward, providing qualitative elements relative to their departments. A brief question and answer period followed. In closing, Vice President Cuaron stated that the criteria is being developed not to reduce the number of ADAs but to provide clear data on the level of support each and every department needs.

 

                                                It was pointed out that Palomar College has always perceived itself as a member of higher education, not K-14. The ADA is a very integral and important part in delivering the instructional end of the department. It is crucial that we continue to provide the best service as possible to our students.
