GLENDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE BOARD OF TRUSTEES MEETING PREVIEW

MIDYEAR UPDATE

Ron Nakasone, the college’s controller, will give the board a midyear update on the college’s budget for the current fiscal year.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Nakasone will discuss expenditures and revenues to date, and also give the board projections of where the college will stand financially by the end of the current fiscal year.

NONRESIDENT TUITION

Trustees are expected to establish tuition fees for nonresidents for the 2008-09 school year.

College staff members have recommended that the board set nonresident fees at $181 per unit, with no additional fees for international students.

This is a $16 increase over the current per-unit fee, according to college documents.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The board is expected to vote on the new suggested fee level of $181.

This fee is the lowest amount the college can legally offer to students, and will help keep the college’s recruitment efforts competitive, according to college documents.

MEASURE G UPDATE

Bill Taylor, the college’s director of business services, will give the board an update on the progress of Measure G-funded projects through Jan. 31. Measure G is a community college facilities improvement bond.

Taylor gives the Measure G funds update to trustees monthly to fill them in on the progress of Measure G-funded projects and the financial state of those projects.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The update will include information on the Bhupesh Parikh Health Sciences and Technology building, the college’s solar panel project and the Garfield Campus expansion project.

Installation of solar panels on the roof of the parking structure has begun, and that project is expected to be completed by the end of March, according to college documents.

For the Garfield campus expansion project, the college expects to award a contract to a firm by the end of September for the design and construction of the project.

The new Garfield facilities are expected to be ready for use by spring 2011.
