Hello.

At @LASC we are continuing our GP efforts! We recently hired Guided Pathways Ambassadors. We are excited that we were able to provide orientation and training for our GP Student Ambassadors via Canvas and Zoom. We are eager to hear what type of platforms other colleges are using to actively engage students. We planned our first student MetaMajor activity one week before the Stay-at-Home order was put in place since we had our MetaMajor activities with faculty and staff.

We actually wanted to hear what type of platforms other colleges are using since we did not have an opportunity to host our student MetaMajor sorting activity.

At Moorpark College this change has increased our urgency to get our maps loaded into Degreeworks into templates as default ed plans...we were going to do this in Fall but now with all services online we felt we needed to get these up ASAP for student access quicker
Stephanie Curry
31:33
We (Reedley College) are focused on re-designing orientation for Fall 2020 and adding Pathways Orientations. We are making contingency plans to make an online version of our general and pathways orientations. These pathways orientations will be lead by our Pathways success teams
Jessica Saint-Paul
33:14
Mini grants! I like that idea…Can you share more about how you were able to get these grants funded to individual faculty? Do you mind sharing your application and/or tools?
Howard Eskew
33:40
At San Diego Mesa College we are also continuing our GP efforts. We are continuing our mapping efforts. We are doing virtual "Mesa Mixers" which bring students, faculty, classified professionals, and administrator to begin discussion around how we will approach meta-majors. We are continuing work with our onboarding pieces and collaborating this with our Regional StrongForce initiatives. We have approved Student Ambassadors and are look at our current structure to determine if we might want to move to more of a project based structure.
Traci Allen
33:51
We are creating mini 1-2 minute videos to share with the campus on the progress we are doing
Gina Jamerson
34:21
Hi Ginni, I didn't raise my hand, but happy to be here! :)
Ginni May

Glad you join us!

At Mt. San Jacinto College, we were moving to incorporate Visions for Success and Pathways into our Strategic Plan. We are working to complete that virtually. Implementation was scheduled for Summer, so the website is in process with Career Coach connections, revision of the catalog with maps and employment data, Student Self Service development where they load their maps, Civitas campaign development, are all ongoing as most of this work is in the background. We continue to run our Design Teams where applicable. The crisis has escalated our move to virtual counseling and student services as well. rnishmoto@msjc.edu

We have allocated funding from our GPS grant to fund mini-grants and smaller projects part of a program we are calling RISE. You can find the applications and all materials on our website: https://www.mtsac.edu/gps/ Faculty have been really excited about these initiatives!
Ginni May
36:57
Such great work going on at the colleges - it is evident that colleges and faculty are using their structures to support students moving through these changes - GP frameworks have helped us to move through the changes much more smoothly.
Tim Adell
37:22
At Victor Valley, we have started moving forward better now that we have a Dean of GP and Professional Development. That has given a person who can be a focal point for all the discrete actions. We have just put out a list of meta-majors that seems, by people's reactions, to be the basic model we'll use.
Stephanie Curry
37:23
We are hosting Coffee Tea and GP Webinars each week with a different topic on Guided Pathways we have 50-70 people attend Topics include: Pathways Months, Career Data and Asssment, Dual Enrollment and Success Teams
Yvette Butterworth
38:23
What college, Howard?
Ginni May

Stephanie Curry - would like to chat with you offline about more topic ideas for Professional Development webinars. Would you be willing? Others might be interested as well.
Jessica Saint-Paul

Hotspots!
Dan Crump

American River College---1000 Chromebooks and 500 have already been distributed. Not sure of source of funding.

Michelle Simotas
44:49
Is anyone moving their outreach and welcome events online?
Tim Adell
45:13
We at Victor Valley have not yet.
Howard Eskew
45:13
Our Mesa College Foundation has raised nearly $50,000 for student emergency relief efforts: chromebooks, food vouchers, supplies.
Rhonda Nishimoto
45:15
Michelle, yes we are.
Howard Eskew
45:25
Thanks Stephanie - will do.
Traci Allen
45:37
Yes at Moorpark we have moved our outreach and welcome events online
Rhonda Nishimoto
45:39
We are utilizing Canvas to deliver our FYE
Traci Allen
46:18
we are doing 2 open house type online formats with all our local high school counselors and administrators to try to hear from them what HS seniors are feeling
Howard Eskew
46:56
Rhonda Nishimoto - we are building a Canvas shell as well. What types of information are you placing in it?
Jessica Saint-Paul
46:57
Clarification, we are interested in engagement ideas for Guided Pathways not courses
Jessica Saint-Paul
47:06
For students
Yvette Butterworth
47:09
Yes, at College of San Mateo we are in the process of moving our Math/Science Jam for August to a virtual format and we are bringing our Welcome Center into the conversations. We usually coordinate with our Week of Welcome to offer the incoming students a touch point in services provided by Math and Science.
Stephanie Curry
47:27
We are planning for our General and Pathways orientations options for Zoom and use breakout rooms to provide smaller group discussions
Jessica Saint-Paul
48:02
@LASC yes AS and GP meet regularly. We are a standing agenda item
Rhonda Nishimoto
48:08
Howard, don't have the particulars yet. We have our FYE group working on it. I can contact them and get it to you.
Howard Eskew
49:19
Yes both are meeting and we do have GP as a reporting item on it at Senate. However, we have not been successful integrating the governance piece into the Academic Senate. Which has been frustrating.
Yvette Butterworth
49:37
At College of San Mateo, we are having our weekly GP meetings and the Academic Senate is meeting bi-weekly. Our GP Director is providing updates to Senate and when appropriate as a GP Steering Committee member and a Senate Rep I am provided updates as appropriate.
Howard Eskew
49:56
Rhonda Nishimoto - heskew@sdccd.edu Thanks!
Rhonda Nishimoto
50:34
Yes, we meet with Academic Senate leadership regularly and I need to leave this to get to their meeting. Academic Senate sits on the Steering Committee as well.
Jessica Saint-Paul
51:14
@LASC Our Academic Affairs GP Faculty Facilitator presents during our regularly scheduled meetings. We work very closely with our local AS. Our Academic Senate president served as one of our Tri-Chairs which may have contributed to our effective consultation process.
Rhonda Nishimoto
51:41
I am sorry, I need to leave. I hope I can get the chat later.
Ginni May
52:00
We will post it.
Matt Taylor
52:09
At Fullerton College we are all still meeting on a regular basis. Our GP Steering Committee co-chairs report to Senate twice a month.
Ginni May
52:18
Or send it to participants
Erin Wall
52:58
College of the Redwoods (I'm Math instructor and incoming Academic Senate VP). I know committees other than the Academic Senate Committee and Curriculum Committee took a break after COVID-19 remote transition. From our web page it looks like Guided Pathways will be meeting on 4/28. What I have seen is Guided Pathways has mainly given informational updates.
Traci Allen
54:40
We are still meeting monthly as a GP Steering committee and our 4 work groups are still meeting monthly
Tim Adell
58:55
Has anybody else run into the problem as liaison of having none of the authority but most of the blame?
Adrienne Brown
01:01:02
This was addressed in yesterday's webinar, at this tie they are taking individual requests for extensions
Jeffrey Hernandez
01:02:15
Great suggestion by John Stover about seeking an extension for the use of GP funds.
Melissa Bader
01:03:09
We have asked for support with project management. We need a good software solution and training on project management. So many of our goals are related to projects that cross so many areas of the college.
Melissa Bader
01:03:30
Sorry, I’m from Norco College.
Melissa Bader
01:05:27
I need to virtually run off to another meeting. Thank you, everyone.
James McGarrah
01:06:51
I need to go in order to prepare for my 1pm course.
Gina Jamerson
01:07:50
Thanks Ginni! Yes, we are looking forward to connecting our Guided Pathways RCs with more GP Liaisons! Collaboration is key to continue to make progress.
Howard Eskew
01:08:59
Need to go to prepare for class. This meeting was so valuable. Please consider doing this again! Great information!
Leslie Valmonte
01:10:04
Absolutely Ginni! Echoing Gina's comment.
Yvette Butterworth
01:10:51
All the meetings and webinars have been much appreciated. Sharing with colleagues across the state is fantastic. It is something that we usually only get at conferences. Thank you for providing this opportunity to connect!
Ginni May
01:10:53
Thank you, Gina and Leslie!!!
Dan Crump
01:11:18
hand up.
Tim Adell
01:11:39
I will say in a less snarky mode, the relationship is clearer with a set person in charge of GP and professional development.
Ginni May
01:12:13
Ok, Dan…
Tim Adell
01:12:48
Our senate president has been integral to this process.
Jeffrey Hernandez
01:14:14
That's good to hear Tim. Perhaps, the Senate President can redirect "blame" to clarify the liaison role
Tim Adell
01:14:50
The blame was more like scuttlebutt.
John Stover
01:16:39
thank you everyone
Sarah Harris
01:16:44
Thanks everyone!
Tim Adell
01:16:49
Thank you--helpful session.

Leslie Valmonte
01:17:06
Thank you everyone! Stay happy, healthy and safe!
Tim Adell
01:17:19
I do want to put out a question for later consideration: how GP will relate to accreditation.
