    Dr. Murphy informed Karen that he would not be able to attend at the designated time and will come at a later time during the meeting
    • 4:17- 4:30 Dr. Murphy visit:
      • Acknowledged the topics on the board that senate had brainstormed, welcomed Senators, and noted that strong senate representation is necessary for college function, is one of the “recognizable identities of the college.”
      • Dr. Murphy also pointed out the quilt which represents the DA institutional 6-year planning and assessment cycle, which was made by “cookies quilters,” senior quilters who donated the quilt to the college.
      • Post accreditation, we will be working toward addressing the fiscal and budget problem. The good news is that the board is not asking us to address it this year-- we pledge no layoffs this year; we will prepare for a two year process, with hope that in the third year we will rebound,
      • Last year’s closure of the Flint parking structure is not the culprit of decline in enrollment; students adapted. College is chasing enrollment through Marketing and Outreach efforts, as well as talking about enrollment (ideas about how to increase it), and we are working at the state level to address issues such as offsetting underfunding by increasing apportionment.
      • Accreditation should not be a source of stress; other urgent issues include income equality and rise of white supremacists, and their impact on students
