    Strengthening Institutions Program Grant Award “Meeting Students Where They Are” 

    De Anza has won a $2.25 million Title III federal grant to better serve its diverse student population over the next five years. Thomas Ray outlined the salient points as presented in De Anza College’s application for the grant authored by Mallory Newell, Deepa Yuvaraj, Alicia Cortez, Veronica Acevedo-Avila, and Lorrie Ranck. The main goals in applying funds from the grant are:

    · To expand and support learning communities
    · Provide robust faculty development and mentorship
    · Expand career planning and student internship program
    · Expand Summer Bridge

    As part of implementation of this grant, two full-time positions are to be filled: Activity Director for Learning Communities and Learning Communities Counselor with emphasis on underserved and LGBTQ+ populations. When questioned about funding these positions at the conclusion of this grant, Thomas stated funding continuance of these positions would be decided through the Planning and Budget process in place at that time.

    Update Program Review Questions: IPBT members and guests broke into groups to update program review questions (Old form to be updated: Program Review 2019-20). Groups were formed by section to be updated

    At close of breakout rooms, it was agreed to continue update of questions during next meeting. Heidi reminded all that it is classified professionals who are tasked with execution of purchases and implementation into the program of resources funded by IPBT’s allocations. This and all such indirect costs should be figured in when allocations are made.
