    Social Sciences and Humanities Division has the highest number of enrollment and has highest number of part-time faculty. How are these numbers, process and decisions equitable to full time faculty, part time faculty and the division without a dean? Departments and/or divisions can have hostile environments, people of color are not being hired and once they are hired, there is not efficient support for them. Data driven and best practices show the positive retention and graduation rates.

    A point system for process and ranking first choice, 1 – 22. Criteria was inclusive of discussions at EAC, the funding formula, student equity goals, and eventually impacted decision making . Academic senate - is reviewing term limits of college council. An idea is to consider equity trainings for shared governance

    HEFAS Mental Health (workshops on Thurs Jan 23 and 30, 2020): Hefas got a 6th intern, part of Mellon Scholars programs, and chose HEFAS as her project. The student will focus on mental health and psychological impact of grief among undocumented students, migration grief, and sense of belonging. She created a questionnaire with the theme of art as healing and is compiling it. She hopes to show how it impacts their mental health while on a positive note community building among participants. At the end of the year she will write a report. HEFAS  doesn’t always document their beautiful work or write out the research so this is a really good opportunity. If u know of a self-identified undocumented student who is open to doing this project, There are are only 20 spots, and it is 3 meetings total and for 2 quarters (Winter and Spring 2020).
