Classified are missing from the Facilities narrative.
Dr. Jeremy Smotherman
33:38
Thank you for pointing that out. We will make the correction.

I would second Katie that Sustainability has to be in the top themes.
Jessica Melvin
42:39
Yes! I second linking equity and sustainability.
michelle vidaurri
42:44

Zack Miranda

Yes!!

That was a lengthy conversation in our breakout. Also a theme of our We the Future Conference.
Nehemiah Skandera
45:20
Concerning Global perspectives, I think it might be better if we were less broad and stated "Global Perspectives" rather than a "Globalized World." Otherwise, someone could globalize anything whether good, or bad.
Robert Ethington
47:24
The 3 pillars of sustainability: the environment, equity, and economics.
Michael Von der Porten
47:59
I am applauding the comments about the solid skills we still need to offer the community.
Thomas Willows
52:02
Consistent messaging was brought up in our breakout room and was agreed as an important value, but it is not mentioned. When there is time can we speak to that?
Katie Gerber
52:05
And with what Casandra commented on about language - that links back to inclusion, particularly when it comes to the various constituent groups at SRJC.
Dr. Jeremy Smotherman
59:57
In case anyone does not have the link to access the Vision document. https://strategic-planning.santarosa.edu/town-hall-notes-and-recordings

healthy work force

I think Nehemia and I are on the same page. Valuing truth does not imply possessing truth. We are not the arbiters of truth, but the place where people assert, question, deny, and provide nuance to the question of what is "true."
Thomas Willows
01:36:17
Consistent messaging
Sophia Porter
01:37:17
I don't explicitly see these words in the values, but these are some words that come to mind from personal experience as a student. knowledge, enlightenment, encouragement, empowerment, opportunity, sanctuary, safety, and love.
Norma Ortiz
01:37:33
thank you
Norma Ortiz
01:37:46
civility and what was the 2nd word?
Dr. Jeremy Smotherman
01:38:15
Collegiality
Norma Ortiz
01:38:28
thanks

Regarding relativism, at the same time, what is "true" in distinct disciplines is best pursued by the methods, refined in disciplinary communities, such that a Math professor has a basis on which to assert what is true in that field, similarly with other disciplines. The institution should not be the arbiter of truth, but some (often strongly held) beliefs are demonstrably false, incoherent, or inconsistent with the accumulated knowledge in well established fields.
Robert Ethington
01:38:53
I like that addition Guy...Adaptability
Liko Puha
01:39:15
@anne not just students, everyone at the college.
Anne Donegan
01:40:07
I like it Liko! I want everyone to be critical thinkers and active citizens!!!
Liko Puha
01:40:36
@Anne great topic for us. Thank you.
Nehemiah Skandera
01:41:07
I agree with Li Collier.
Robert Ethington
01:41:21
Thanks for adding Cultural Humility @Li

As our budget changes (reduced enrollment, COVID funds ending, new funding formula, etc.), I really like the idea that whatever our new budget is mirrors the values that we are committed to. This is especially important in areas such as DEIA. Where will our dollars be spent? What work will we fund or not fund?
Dr. Jeremy Smotherman
01:47:02
We are on break until 10:52am

great discussion
Norma Ortiz
01:48:24
thank you
Sean Martin
01:54:42
I'd suggest also including Beauty in our values. Again, not suggesting the institution has a monopoly on the meaning of that term, but our arts programs are essential and they are engaged in aesthetic pursuits.
Liko Puha
02:00:50
Cultural Competency/Humility
Michael Von der Porten
02:11:20
I think there are two key points on which we want to diverge from the old M/V/V: 1. the old statement is that we are a "community." That's not #1. We have been created to be an EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION. Community is a key value, but that's not why we get $160 million per year. 2. Truth and honesty don't appear as core elements in the old document.
Thomas Willows
02:13:23
What is the average retention of a single student at SRJC? Important to know when discussing structure.
Li Collier
02:54:23
I didn't see Equity on that list.
Katie Gerber
02:54:34
Noticed that
Vanessa Luna Shannon
