Stephanie will reach
out to Joan at Humankind to try and connect her with Lewis before the college
meets with architects to discuss the new building.
Patti shared the
student conduct committee made changes and they are in the catalog. She would
like to create a committee to rewrite the conduct process, but will need to
wait until after the implementation of VIP Pass.
We discussed getting
hot topic workshops looping in student center, Kimberly spoke to David Lightfoot

Kimberly is waiting to
hear back from Natalie with GLTC about changing the bus schedule to accommodate
our late night students.
We reviewed the goals
for upcoming year and will focus on Goal 2 and 3.
Goal 2. Changing GLT
bus schedule to accommodate our night students
Goal 3. Create student
orientation video to be shown in the student center and in the counseling
center. Kimberly reported that Jill
Markwood is going to be able to work with us to create this.
Kimberly reported that
there were 1 hour new student orientation sessions that were a big success. She
attributes it to sending the invitation and sign up information to both school
and personal email.
Patti and Chief Dove
presented parent orientation sessions too.
Tom is going to speak
with Lana to see what times would work for her schedule and we will change the
time the SSC meets so she and others can hopefully attend.
Kimberly reported the
CSI was administered to non-credit SDV 100 and regular SDV 100 classes and the
data has been very telling. She hopes to develop Hot Topic workshops on the
areas students indicated they needed help with from the CSI inventory. She reviewed their schedules and identified
some times that would accommodate their schedule to offer these Hot Topic workshops.

Patti suggested that we
as a campus start thinking about how we can give help to the Harvey victims.
The idea of connecting with the Houston Community College to see if they are
doing anything for their students and how we can help them. We also talked
about using God’s Pit Crew or Gleaning for the World. Discussion also focused
on assisting a displaced family that will be coming to Lynchburg.
Patti is going to talk
with Deanne and Dr. Mickles to see what ideas they might have on how we as a
college can help.
