Guided Majors and Mapping Charge of the Committee/Mission Statement

Outcomes:

  1. Outcome 2a will consist of presenting options and receiving feedback from all interested parties. The primary vehicles for this will be the Mesa Mixers, presentations at the Academic Senate, Classified Senate, Associated Students, Chair of Chairs, Deans’ Council, Admin Council, PCAB, and a Flex activity. Start of Fall 2020.

  2. Outcome 2b is a well-defined Framework that has been reviewed and approved by all interested parties. This outcome will be completed by the end of Fall 2020.

  3. Deadlines for implementation will be determined by the end of Fall 2020.

  4. Outcome 3a is a proposal for this program with a well-defined framework that has been reviewed by all interested parties, including the Academic Senate, Classified Senate, Associated Students, Chair of Chairs, Deans’ Council, Admin Council, and PCAB. End of Spring 2021.

  5. Outcome 3b is implementation of this program. Due to the likely impact of this program on Faculty workload, elements of it will need to be negotiated by the District and the AFT before such a program can be implemented. It is unclear how long this would take and this work is beyond the purview of this Workgroup.
