Faculty Voluntary Sick Leave Bank - Open Call for Contributions
Contributions are being accepted to join the Faculty Voluntary Sick Leave Bank (VSLB), a pool established and maintained by the voluntary contribution of accrued sick leave days/hours by faculty.  The VSLB provides members with specific additional sick leave benefits in the event of a catastrophic or life-threatening injury or illness in accord with the AFT/SFCCD CBA Article 17.E - Voluntary Sick Leave Bank.
Submission of the contribution form will be accepted from February 20 through April 10, 2015.  If you have any questions, contact AFT at 585-2121 or Lety Sazo of the Human Resources Department at 487-2443.  The Contribution Form and information notice are attached.

2. Pierre Coste Dining Room: 

The Pierre Coste Dining Room (PCR) is up and running. We are open Mondays-Thursdays from 11:15-12:30. Submitted by Barbara Haimes.

3. The Tree of Life: 

The faculty and students in Interdisciplinary Studies 29: Introduction to Islam have created a Tree of Life art project in Batmale 203 in commemoration of life in the face of senseless acts of violence, and in honor of anyone who has lost a loved one through violence. As many of you know,  Ameena Jandali, who co-teaches IDST 29,  lost three members of her family in the shootings in Chapel Hill:  Deah Barakat, his wife Yusor Abu-Salha and her sister Razan Abu-Salha. In early January, CCSF lost one of our Critical Pacific Island Studies students, Daneil Fillmore, to gun violence. We invite you to stop by Batmale 203 and add "a leaf to the tree of life." Please consider bringing or sending your classes, as well.  Please see the attachment for details. Submitted by Lauren Stuart Muller.

4. Educational Leadership Program:

The Learning Community and Career Pathways Committee in collaboration with the Divisions of Student Development and Academic Affairs is planning three professional development opportunities for CCSF programs and pathways at 8:30am-3:00 in MUB 140. 

The first event, SFUSD Counselors Summit on March 13, will provide CCSF programs the opportunity to provide SFUSD counselors information, resources, and registration information to pass along to all SFUSD counselors.

The second event, the Strategic Summit on Career and Transfer Pathways on March 20, is an opportunity for all of CCSF's first year programs, retention programs, bridge programs, and pathways to come together to strategize how to better coordinate the recruitment, support, and resources for all programs at CCSF. 

The third event, will build off the momentum gained in the Strategic Summit focusing on program and curriculum development for first year, bridge and pathway programs. 

Participating in these events will help the college to create clearer pathways and outreach materials for new and existing students. These outreach materials will be used for Frisco Day and other large recruitment efforts. All of these events will provide the participating programs with publicity, exposure, and connection to new funding opportunities. To register for the first two events please use the google form linked here. Registration information for the third event will be provided mid-March. If you have any questions, please contact Michelle Simotas at msimotas@ccsf.edu 415.239.3380.
