Improved Linkage and Communication between Committees
6.4 The Communication Studies faculty has identified a list of needs within our discipline based on SLO data results that showed that one of our greatest needs is in improving students’ verbal fluency and speech delivery abilities. While we have seen improvementwe a, re still well below our benchmark SLO pass rate of 80%:
For Fall 2010, an additional lab activity relating to solutions will be added to the schedule to address SLO 2. Physical models capable of representing solute solvation and ion dissociation would also help students learn the topics involved in SLOs 2 and 6. The department currently has animations to show solvation, but models to physically manipulate would help students visualize concepts like dilution and ion dissociation. Budget Amount Requested: $800.00
To comply with the standards it is recommended that the college, when making its short-range financial plan, e.g. the annual budget of the college, consider its long-range financial obligationto pay the cost of the GASB 45– Other Post-Employment Benefits (OPEB) as the costs are incurredinstead of delaying payment to some future date. Specifically, the college is encouraged to prepare a comprehensive plan to prevent disruption of services offered to students by paying the Annual Required Contribution (ARC) determined using generally accepted accounting principles into an irrevocable trust fund at the amount equal to the actuarially determined Annual required Contribution (III.D.1.c).
