V. President’s Report:
President Estrella referred Senators to her May 4, 2006 memo to faculty that describes issues and activities relating to ongoing academic and professional matters of interest. There was discussion of the State Academic Senate’s support for increasing the minimum requirements for an associate degree in math and English. The State Senate’s resolution would make English 1A and Math 123 the new minimum requirements for an A.A. degree. English 1A is already required here to obtain an associate degree, but Hartnell’s current math requirements are lower (Math 121 or Math 151).
