CONTINUATION OF CCSSEE
PRESENTATION: Assistant Dean Jeannie Pezzoli
Committee members broke up into two groups to discuss how we can maintain what we are doing right
and how we might improve. The groups focused on two areas based on survey
results that need to be strengthened: financial aid and computing
services. The committee made the following recommendations.
Financial Aid: Create scholarships for
those who already have degrees and are not eligible for tuition waivers.
Dan Kruse announced that David Cole, MLP
President and CEO, has given ten ABIT scholarships per year for students
who are doing well in their first two years. These are ongoing
scholarships. We also have two scholarships from Textron, totaling 12 scholarships that are available for
ABIT this spring.
·Establish technology fee for replacement
·Apply for PCATT RFP funds for high
technology. Vaughn is working with Tech Support Committee on application.
·Install wireless connection for use by
faculty, staff, students who have laptops. Need to research on how extensive this would be and the level
of bandwidth available. Diane Meyer will ask Sandra Swanson to check on level of bandwidth available and where available.
·Dissemination information to students via Banner. Students could get current news about MCC using
their MCC account.
Our report, which is an
addendum to our eligibility document, is due in December 2004 for
March 2005 accreditation visit. Diane is chairing the ABIT committee
which replaces the BCDT and Baccalaureate committees. Need to identify who will lead action strategy for Strategic Plan.

strategies were discussed to reduce costs.
Look at how other campuses are printing their
catalogs and schedules of classes and do a price comparison. Inform
people that catalog is available on the web.
Remove the (Outreach, Academic Support) ORAS unit

need to have a chair supporting their unit.

year. Don’t know if we will be receiving anything this year.
Look at Fall class
enrollments to see which classes should not have been
offered. Objectively look at classes to pull from the Schedule of Classes.
Tap into grants for additional funding.
Look at reorganization piece; limiting
Look at Voc-Tech areas to see if they can produce alterative revenue
support for classes.
NON RESIDENT TUITION STATUS
There is a proposal being
developed at the administrative level to cap non-resident tuition by year 2010. Non-resident tuition
would be capped at four times resident tuition.
Enrollment is at 2,996 after purges.
