Faculty/Chancellor Forum 02/19/16

posted Mar 7, 2016, 3:16 PM by Ana Jiménez

Below is a list of questions and answers from the Faculty Forum. The first 16 questions were asked and answered during the actual forum. Because we ran out of time, the remaining questions were sent to the Chancellor's Office for a response. 
In addition to answering those remaining questions, the Chancellor's Office also provided additional information to the questions answered in the forum.
    List of Questions are below. Click here for responses.

  1. What is Pima doing to recruit local students?
  2. Please tell us what is happening with the reorg of administrators.
  3. What are key impediments to enrollment growth and what is the solution?
  4. How does dual enrollment work here? This needs to be a part of the enrollment conversation.
  5. Seems sometimes in responding to HLC and AZ funding issues, PCC is running scared and reacting.
  6. What can faculty do to support outreach to high schools and other organizations?
  7. Quality instruction is key to student success and employability.
  8. What is Pima doing to recruit local students?
  9. Please speak to job security and budget.
  10. Three years ago, you informed us that a lot of administrators will be retiring nation-wide and there will be channels for people to move up. What has happened to the leadership channels?
  11. What are Pima’s plans for district-wide centralized scheduling?
  12. What happened to training for procedures to follow if a shooter is on campus?
  13. Could you speak about what plans are in place to help the sophomores who are also close to finishing their program and degree?
  14. Why have we said 100% of faculty and classes will be assessed for SLos when this percentage does not align with recommendations from research or best practice? Why don’t we adjust the percentage?
  15. You have explained the cut in campus-based administrators. Will there be a similar cut at district? There seem to be new positions there.
  16. Why has the PCCEA committee and you allowed an administrator to enter a faculty member’s classroom, sit there and evaluate when the DEAN has little to no teaching experience at a community college?
  17. What changes are projected to take place due to the lack of funding?
  18. Who do you consider as the “most at risk” student? What happened to guaranteed schedules?
  19. Are you aware of how new financial aid standards are affecting students? FOr example, pulling approved Financial Aid appeals from previous years this semester? Students who were previously approved for FA are now being told, sometimes a year later, that due to new standards put in place this semester they have no FA. Students were told this there weeks after classes started and then were dropped from their classes overnight w/ 24 hours notice, Do you feel we are genuinely serving these students?
  20. My concern is when you say things like “I work for Pima full time” implies you don’t know we are grading papers on weekends and preparing classes or “enrollment is down because faculty are rude to students”. I’ve got evaluations that say different! Blanket statements like that based on anecdotal cases, not data are just insulting.
