The Skyline College Strategic Planning and Allocation of Resources Committee (SPARC) met on Thursday, November 12, 2020.

Dr. Jennifer Taylor-Mendoza, Vice President of Instruction, updated the committee on the college instructional equipment prioritization.  As the District is no longer providing funding support, the College seeks to continue funding instructional equipment needs through college resources and grants.

Tri Chairs Leigh Ann Shaw and Ingrid Vargas led the discussion to review SPARC charge, membership responsibilities, and membership representation. The committee’s suggestions will be further deliberated at the next meeting in December after members discuss with their constituent groups. Current SPARC information on charge and membership can be found SPARC and Compendium of Committees

The committee also reviewed the Institutional Effective Committee (IEC) charge and membership, as the IEC will now take on additional responsibilities to oversee the program review process. The IEC has been re-structured to a tri-chair model.  SPARC will continue discussion at a future meeting with a suggested flow-chart showing the responsibilities and alignment of these committees: SPARC, IEC and College Governance Council (CGC).

SPARC meets on the second and the last Thursday of the month from 2:10 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
