Note:  Governance is being scrutinized across the Chancellor's Office. Shift in direction. Overall, ensure that committees understand they are "advisory" committees to the CCCCO.  CCCApply committee not so much, but other committees are being reviewed in general.  Waiting for the Chancellor's Office to figure out governance of these committees overall before we update the charter (CCCApply Constitution / Bylaws) which are from 2005 and reference Xap master contract and a master plan from before OpenCCCApply. 

Tim says traditionally we require an Admissions person and an IT person - Researcher was optional additional.  

Discussing revisions to the Bylaws - especially regarding attendance and participation. Adding to this parking lot. 

Chancellor's Office News & Update

Michael Q. addressed the committee with news and issues coming out of the Chancellor's Office.  Summary notes are below. Mitch will add more detailed notes here as minutes. 

Chancellor's Office Update 

Notes from Mitch Leahy:

1.     New deputy chancellor Dr. Daisy Gonzalez starting next month

2.     New vice chancellor of finance- Christian Osmena

3.     New chancellor of academic affairs Dr. Alex Perez vice

4.     Rhonda Mohr is now the acting vice chancellor of Student  Services.

5.     Budget changes including the new funding formula for colleges: 50% FTES 25% promise grant 25% completion.

6.     Consolidation of categorical programs.  This impacts regulations and funding formulas. Question: What does the chancellor’s office mean by all categorical? This question along with many others need to be worked out before the May revise so that it can be presented to the governor.  There was an LAO report that promotes aligning California’s higher education better.

Goals are being made to make the process easier for students.

7.     Guided pathways is moving forward in March. Plans will be turned in by March.

8.     Today (1/31/18) is the deadline for all integrated plans for SSSP and student equity.

9.     Mike was part of a FAO and A&R meeting to talk about streamlining homeless youth residency.  Question: What has the Chancellor’s Office done to make this issue an obstacle?

1. Financial Aid has the ability to verify a homeless youth and pass that on to A&R. However, there is a big lag time in this communication.

2.  Has CCCApply been streamlined for homeless youth? The committee agreed that the Chancellor’s Office needs to provide more guidance on how residency determination can be more “relaxed” for homeless youth.

10.  Tim confirmed homeless youth and formally incarcerated are advisor cards in MyPath.

11.  Digital Innovations and Infrastructure is a new department with a new vice chancellor (TBD).

Patty's notes from the conversation as it happened:

Bomb: Consolidation of Categorical Programs! This is a big deal, lots to flush out.  Lots of legislation has to change. EOPS is one example. 

The CCCCO provides a recommendation to the governor on how we will do this. Looking for guidance on what this means now.

A suggestion to simplify the funding formulas and all the reporting requirements - would be to consolidate categorical programs.  LAO report.  

Guided Pathways is moving forward.  Self-assessments are due in March.  

Lots of things happening at the state level to streamline across the system to be more student-centric. Trying to hit visions for success.  

Regarding CCCApply: 

Michael was part of a FA directors meeting with AR directors to find out how we can streamline and simplify the process for homeless youth (make it easier). Intent was to not create more burdens.  What is the CCCCO doing that might be causing obstacles?

Need to ask the practitioners in the trenches for help?  What are the obstacles and what needs to change? 

Financial Aid to identify a homeless youth - need to include some residency questionnaire - at the time they are interviewing the student - remove flags, the student needs to be verified as a resident.  Also at risk of losing priority registration. 

Suggestion: 1) When FA office is doing financial judgement - complete residency form - send it over to Admissions - remove flags.  and 2) on CCCApply - streamline logic for homeless youth residency (needs to be reviewed and look for ways to streamline this area). 

Discussion on removing homeless youth barriers:
Robin Armour (Contra Costa) says they have developed AB801 residency process - collect driver's license, ID card, and letter from a person letting the HY sleep on their couch.  "Couch-hopper"

Mike asked the committee to review the residency logic from the perspective of "are we doing everything we can to streamline the barriers relative to determining a homeless youth a resident".   Ramp up the Residency Review Advisory Committee (Mike Q will lead this discussion in that advisory group). This group will need to meet soon on this.  If ANYTHING needs to be changed in CCCApply logic sooner than later, it needs to be identified now and put that through for IT review so it can be developed in our tight schedule. 

Folks in the room who volunteered to sit on the Residency review committee:
Mike Q.
Michelle Pena
Stephanie Murguia
Richette Bell
Mitch Leahy

Who else?  Anyone on the phone want to participate in this committee? We will talk about it again after lunch as ell. 

Michael says he wrote a two-page paper on how SSSP funds could be used to be successful at the college's prerogative IF it is used for success and aligns within the boundaries of SSSP.  If you need him to send that to you let him know.  (sorry bad notes. will be cleaned up). Change to legislation will happen as needed. 

THE GOAL FOR CCCAPPLY SHOULD ALWAYS BE THE STUDENT.  For the benefit of the student, ways to streamline the process for the student. 

Michael Ward brought up an issue relative to homeless students. OpenCCC requires an email address. 

Tim says, "Goal of this committee is to build a portal system - to move our system from a "thing that you go to" to a thing that is integrated that is one experience for the student (Career Coach, CCCApply, Financial Aid - all one MyPath experience) THEN MyPath can take over all messaging for students.  Rules ,messages, recommendations, calendarize, ed planning, nudges, reminders galore.  Needs and interests can be handled BETTER through MyPath.  We should be moving more towards this single services platform.  

Problem with the email address is - there has to be a way to message the student - there is a messaging service in MyPath - so even if they have nothing else, they can log into MyPath and see messages.  They can also customize their preferences in MyPath, "Also send messages to my...cell phone, email, etc.).  Give the student a general eMail.   If we give students a CCCID-based email we can send it centrally to the student (through MyPath)

Gary Bird has some updates:
new directors at the CCCCO:  Director of MIS: Christopher Anderson, Ryan Fuller - Director of Research - waiting on new Vice Chancellor of IT.  Announcements will be going out to the listserv.

Chancellor's Office Update 

Tech Center News & Update

Tim Calhoon provided a review of the Statewide Student Portal. 

See how the "big brainstorming sessions" from 2008 amongst the CCCApply Steering Committee and the Tech Center way back in 2008 to build a centralized, student-focused matriculation portal has now come to pass.  Check it out in the PPT below.

Notes from Mitch Leahy, Secretary:

Tech Center & Statewide Initiatives Update

1.     A plan was made in 2008 for guided pathways.  It allowed students to explore colleges, find financial aid, student services, assessment, ed planning, transcripts- all in an electronic portfolio.

2.     All colleges use the same high-speed internet network. It is comprised of a 38k mile fiber optic network. Every year, broadband usage goes up. 1 gig services are being upgraded to 10 gig services. An economy of scale is being investigated between college campuses.

3.     A statewide student account and identity had been established with the CCCID.  There is only 2/10% duplication of accounts.

4.     Education Planning is being done with the Hobsons system. 30 colleges are participating.

5.     Edunav is a new ed planner (not a degree audit). It has a great interface but some technical issues when registration breaks.

6.     Tech center is working on collecting high school transcripts.

7.     Course articulation was reviewed.

8.     Curriculum inventory. There was a loss in stake holders and the project manager. Many bugs have been fixed. Curriculum approval has sped up.

9.     There is a new version of course exchange including financial aid.

10.  Almost every college is using common course management system.

11.  Online Course Catalog is now available. Eventually, it will be incorporated in myPath.

12.  Distance learning support such as online counseling and tutoring is now available.

13.  Multiple measures research is underway.

14.  Placement platform can be used as a multiple measure placement or MMAP.  Researchers can have access to the data.

15.  A new data warehouse has just been released that pulls in data from all state software platforms. This is only going to be available to researchers.

16.  Project super glue with master data management was discussed.

17.  There is an Accessibility Center at the Tech Center that helps colleges with accessibility.

18.  There is a new security center and tools. There has been a 95% success rate in taking over SIS systems. According to Tim, Information security takes expertise and focus.

19.  There is a 5% attrition rate with students completing the online application. We are losing 72% of applicants who never enroll.

20.  Tim presented a slide of myPath.

Update on Data Security Issues

Quick Update to Steering on Status of Data Security Issues

  1. Data Security Breach Protection

    1. Review conversation from last meeting;  data deep freeze project on roadmap for after June 30
      1. Should we do a short term archive in the interim?

NOTE: Engineering is telling us that this data deep freeze project is HUGE and thus we'll have to put it on hold (defer to next fiscal year).   revisit in 2018-2019 FY - Fall 2018). 

What needs to be in Deep Freeze and how would we access it, if needed?
The consensus across the members of Steering who have responded to our requests for feedback believe that "5 years of back application data" - on-hand, not in deep freeze - should be adequate for general purposes and most audit requests. 

We just need to figure the processes out.  We would start with the Xap data and move forward to the first year of OpenCCCApply (2012) and beyond.

Fraudulent Applications
& /wiki/spaces/OPENAPPLY/pages/194412693 Update

  1. Long term project: SPAM FILTER Web Service & Admin UI
    1. Would work exactly like your eMail SPAM folder - manually confirming spam - they get marked as "Bad" and the algorithm learns each new pattern/trend
  2. Short Term
    1. Configuration Change/ Hot Fix: January 12 - Added block/error message if application is submitted in under 90 seconds.  App is suspended for 47 mins. 
    2. Send out email to all colleges:  Objectives: Here's what we are doing, here's what we've learned and here's what we recommend as best practices.
      1. What we are doing:  Working with machine learning data analyst team on R&D project to build a spam filter web service
      2. What we have learned:
        1. Time to Completion = If an application is submitted in under 1minute, high probability it's a spam app
        2. Other trends (path of least resistance > no education (homeschool, non-grad, non-Cali resident, etc.)
        3. Feedback from the Steering colleges - SSN duplicates, same DOB, same names
          Come in batches typically
        4. Human-beings using keyboard macros - get passed the Captcha

          jan 31 meeting - Big take away from this meeting - need to band together and make all colleges buy-in to the SPAM filter in order for it to work. We need lots of data so the algorithm gets smarter. Tim says that if all colleges don't participate, some colleges will be doing the work for all colleges.  Shared workload, shared-protection.  
          Tim says let's get everyone into it and see what issues come up. We need all colleges to help with this. 
          Per Mitch - this will create a lot more work for Admissions
          Others say, they want to take the time to ensure the spam is abated. 
          Action Item: Patty needs to ensure that 1) the Opt-In toggle needs to be taken out (Phase 1) and  turn on initially for all colleges to start; and 2) add a configuration file mechanism so we can turn it off quickly. and 3) trigger an email that goes out to Admissions if a spam application is suspended (add that rule).

UPDATE:  AB620 (LGBTQ data) - In November 2017, the Tech Center was required to transfer the data to the colleges.  We (CCCTC) pass an anonymized file with fields for matching (First + Last = DOB + CCCID + Gender + Transgender + Sexual Orientation + CalPass Hash data (first, last, gender, DOB = encryption/hash put that into a field (key)

Discussion for January 31 meeting:

  1. Revisit the discussion we started in November: 
    1. Mitch = recommendation is to change the data field names to something else unrecognizable.
    2. Also Data Dictionary is too transparent. DON"T PUBLISH THIS ONLINE.  Suggestion was to move all Data Dictionaries to the Administrator - requiring colleges to sign in to access these documents. Should we move forward with this?  If yes, it would not be available until later in 2018 (next release possible, September?)
    3. Data Warehouse looking for suggestions for LGBTQ report.  What columns are needed?

  2. Tim says we need outcomes data to be combined with MIS data (equity questions). 

5.  CCCCO + CDE (CalPADS) CDE K12 data = to get HS transcript data for multiple measures

  3. Recruit members and appoint a Chair or leader
  4. Set meeting deadlines
  5. Other?
CommitteeDescriptionOBJECTIVESChair / Members
Non-Credit Application Advisory Committee

  • Continued requests for this type of application

  • Adult Education Block Grant (AEBG) - Asking for changes to CCCApply for Adult Ed

  • Folks want us to NOT include residency questions for non-credit

  • Tim recommended that if they want that they need to lobby to change Title V

    Do we punt on this until next version of Apply (form-engine)?

These are the old notes from the November meeting (which echo loudly of notes from previous meetings) - once again it's a hot topic.

**Get permission to identify the folks who were on the Non-Credit call to change Title V (to invite to a Steering meeting - to hear their goals and to express to them that we want to work with them but show the all the implications of what needs to happen and what needs to be fixed. Emphasizing that we aren't saying NO, it's that we want to ensure that everyone has all the facts.  We could dedicate a special meeting to this issue (they present, we present).  How do they suggest we collect IPEDS data, AB620 data, residency data).

NEED Chair for this Advisory Committee - 
Set meeting dedicated to this issue

Can we change regulations? 
Can we change college processes?

NEED Chair for this Advisory Committee - 
2018 WorkshopThis committee provides coordination and planning support for the 2018 Annual CCCApply Workshop. 

At the Jan 31 meeting we discussed the objective that ALL steering members should help with the Workshop in some way. Either facilitate or present a session (co-present) OR help with registration or just attend the sessions and provide feedback, examples, expertise, and/or take notes.  Please let Patty and Michelle know if you can help.  

Meet weekly on Fridays at 11:00AM between January 19 - March 23, 2018, to stay on top of all workshop details.
