Narrative

1. Increase Enrollment and Completions – Desire to develop new courses/certificates in the area of Architectural Digital Design/Fabrication as an extension of our primarily transfer focused Architectural program. Need to compensate faculty to develop and write the new courses and create a new Certificate in this area. With the introduction of these specific targeted certificates we will also increase the number of certificates awarded.

2. Increase Student Success – The assistance of an instructional aide (advanced student in the program) in our lab classes to assist students who are struggling with material that is covered – particularly in the area of developing skills using the various types of computer software that they use to develop their drawings and presentations but to also get students up to speed in developing the necessary types of drawing files and processes of preparing them for use in the Fablab’s various types of equipment that we ask them to use (Laser, CNC Shopbot, 3D printers). With the help of a student assistant we would be able to help more students and increase the amount of one on one student/instructor contact, which would improve overall student success. The instructional aide will also benefit from the experience by utilizing and reinforcing their knowledge/skills when they explain the various processes that we request students to do in order to complete a given project (how to draw/set up files between various programs and prepare for laser cutting, etc.). In doing so, the aide will also be improving their skills/abilities as well.

3. Potential also exists to increase introductory-level placement within various design related industries in the greater Bay area – drafting technicians, digital fabrication designers/detailers, furniture/cabinetry detailers, etc. By developing the new courses/certificates we will provide alternative opportunities for students who do not wish to transfer to 4-year university programs.

Narrative

1.Increase enrollment by better recruitment from the highschools. This involves providing workshops for HS teachers for their own professional development in Biotechnology/Biomanufacturing and the available programs for their students. Also field trips of Highschool students to Laney College requires time spent by Laney faculty in preparing activities for the students and time spent hosting the students.
2. Increase student success – we need instructional aides in the lab classroom to assist during the lab time, and act as tutors for students while they work on the lab exercises. Increased contact with instructors and instructor aids increases student retention and success. Instructional aides benefit from the reinforcement of their knowledge by explaining it to others, as well as gaining work experience in a laboratory setting.
3. Increase placement in workforce by providing work experiences while students are in the program. We are partnering with the Bay Area Biotech Education Consortium (BABEC) and other colleges in a “supply chain” project. Students are making lab materials that are used in Bay Area high schools. They are providing services for high school biotech programs like pipette calibration. Also, we are partnering with startup companies like SF Indie Bio to give students opportunities to work with scientists and entrepreneurs in biotech. Startups bring their projects to our lab and use our equipment with the students.

Narrative

1. Increase student job placement and success, as well as program reputation in industry and academia. In order to ensure that our students have the necessary skills to gain employment and thrive in today’s state-of-the-art facilities, we must have comparable “facilities” in which to train them. We have opportunities to partner with large corporations, like: Safeway, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, Whole Foods, UCSF Medical Center, Hilton Hotels, Bon Appétit Management Company, and top local area restaurants. However, in order to do so, our students must have exposure to and experience with the types of equipment used by such organizations. Without this, our students cannot perform, industry “partners” are negatively impressed and our program reputation suffers. To successfully draw and retain students, as well as industry partnerships, our program must be competitive with other educational institutions in meeting industry demand. The only way to effect this is by providing facilities consistent with current industry standards, as well as technological trends.
That said, investment does not end with purchase. Maintenance of equipment and the facilities housing said equipment are vital. A comprehensive Preventative Maintenance Program and robust Scheduled Cleaning Contract are imperative. For years, our department has operated in the absence of both, with calamitous results. We have endured several Alameda County Health Department citations and sanctions, resulting in the repeated closure of our lab facilities (kitchens). Most egregiously, though, with each of these closures we have been forced to cancel classes. In fact, in the past year, we have been ordered to shut down our facilities so many times that one class missed 16 weeks of lab instruction. This is untenable.
It is important to keep in mind that ours is a “self-funded” program. We cannot achieve SLO’s, get food to the various outlets for which we are responsible and instruct our students correctly, when our facilities are unkempt and our equipment is not state-of-the-art.

To increase the enrollment by better recruitment from high schools and industry. This will include providing workshops for high school teachers for professional development in the Environmental Control Technology, Building Automation Systems and Energy Efficiency. Create field trips for high school students to Laney College which creates extra time spent for Laney faculty in preparing activities for students and time spent in hosting them.
2. To increase student success, for this we need to hire two ten hour a week or one twenty hour a week Instructional aid(s) to increase student retention and success. This will also help instructional aid(s) to re enforce their knowledge by trying to explain it to others and gain work experience in working with students in a class and lab environment.
3. To increase placement in workforce by providing real hands on experience while students are going through the program. We are also trying to partner with BAYER pharmaceutical and other key industry partners to provide internships to our students, so they can work with real hands on and get the necessary work experience for better employment.

Narrative

The E/ET department at Laney College has grown considerably and added several new courses and certificate programs over the past few years, resulting in greatly increased student enrollment. The growth in enrollment has outpaced and outgrown the development of E/ET’s human resources and lab infrastructure. The tangible result of this growth is that the Dept. Chair and other faculty are being overloaded with administrative, counseling, curriculum updating, equipment purchasing and grant-funding responsibilities in addition to managing oversized classes and struggling to cope with underdeveloped labs.
2. E/ET is requesting that Strong Workforce funds directed at improving the quality and efficacy of various electrical and electronics technology programs be spent on hiring a qualified departmental administrative assistant who can perform a variety of tasks. These tasks would include providing counseling to students, handling departmental purchases, managing Prop 39 accounts, and providing other administrative and marketing duties as required.
3. E/ET also has a dire need for a lab assistant to improve lab safety and assist students in performing various electrical lab exercises. Presently the instructors have to cope with massive class sizes -sometimes between 50 and 65 students- and struggle to administer and guide the lab as well as enforce safety standards and protocol. Having a dedicated lab assistant who is assigned to work during the lab schedule of ~ 5pm – 10pm four days a week would make a significant difference in improving the quality, organization, and safety of electrical labs.
4. Release time is needed for a faculty member to travel to a Southern California college to observe and learn from a long-established electrical training program. Los Angeles Trade & Technology College presently has the best electrical training program among the California Community Colleges.

1. The relationship between storytellers (videographers) and technology is fueling high demand industries’ current and future development, namely AR, VR, game design – we’re talking NASA scientists, Tesla engineers, neurosurgeons, Star Wars creators and dreamers from Laney, the next generation of creators. With 3D software and fabrication tools, Virtual and Augmented Reality engines and Immersive Storytelling, we can train high school students, college students and community residents to be a part of this new VR/AR/GAME economy.
2. Students will broaden their skills through interdisciplinary cooperation, learning in a team toward STE(A)M careers. An emphasis on VR/AR/GAME/MEDIA will engage students eager to be part of this new technical boom. This is an era where artists, technicians, inventors, educators, and students of all disciplines are collaborating to engineer and fabricate solutions to global and societal problems.
3. Workshop will require at least one instructional aide to assist the instructor. We’ve already established the need for aides in a lab-oriented class with high tech equipment.
4. Media plans to design a new VR/AR/GAME/MEDIA program, both Certificate and AA. We hope to collaborate with the FabLab and other departments on campus, to create a career pathway for this next generation of creators. We hope to partner with local VR/AR startups for internships, projects and speaker series. We also plan to reach out to High Schools in our community to give them the opportunity to learn about this new skill set.

1. Increase Retention and Degree production.
We will update, revalue, and refine our curriculum to meet contemporary vocational demands. We will infill extant technology, currently too few for our class rosters, with contemporary computers. We will support entry-level students with Instructional aids in the highly technical entry-level class labs.
A contemporary curriculum, properly oriented and sequenced, will support a pathway to a more reasonably valued and achievable degree. Along with increased comprehensive interaction with Instructors and Instructional Aids, we will bind students to the program with an improved sense of place and purpose. This will increase faculty time demands, the development and hiring of student aids, and the purchasing of equipment.
On the program level, we will be developing new courses in lighting and digital photography. We also will seek to move students more quickly to completion and improve our success rates by streamlining of the curriculum and eliminating redundant content. We will also improve program marketing by grouping program components in a more logical package. Concurrent with course upgrade/program improvement, we intend to present ourselves to a larger base through outreach to local high schools, photo clubs, and career development centers through direct visits, speaking engagements, and tours of our facility.

Narrative

1. The WDTEC department’s current CNC machine was manufactured in 1998 and is long past the average life span of such a machine and well behind the technology curve. In order to keep up with manufacturing standards in the industry the department must purchase a new machine which utilizes the current technology, advanced manufacturing practices and standards of the wood working industry. The CNC machine is the critical piece of equipment used in the final two courses in the current WDTEC certificate (WDTEC 30, 40). The program mission is to instruct students in state of the art technology for the advanced manufacturing sector of the Woodworking industry. This sector currently has a tremendous growth rate with a substantial number of jobs available to trained individuals. The department is currently upgrading and expanding the CAD/CAM courses into a stackable certification program in order to better serve the needs of local industry. Therein there will be several entry and exit points to the program in accordance with the various levels of training required by local industry. This change will allow for sequential training for students just entering the career pathway as well as skill upgrades for journeypersons already working in the industry but needing skills upgrades in the automation realm of product manufacturing. These efforts are undertaken to create a robust training program in conjunction with local industry partners resulting in greater productivity for the department in terms of certificates and degrees as well as job placements into living wage jobs.
The inoperable machine has caused substantial discontinuity in the lesson sequence within the capstone course of the program, WDTEC 40. This creates a disingenuous contractual agreement with the students in those courses attempting to adequately prepare to enter the job market. Students persisted into these courses in order to complete their certificates and prepare for employment in the advanced manufacturing sector.

1. Increase enrollment by targeting vocationally interested high school students and clients of community based organizations. This involves meetings with administrators of these programs, tours of Laney facilities for both administrators and clients, and counseling interviews with individual prospective students. Goals of these activities are to raise their awareness and manage their expectations of careers in the Welding (and related) industry.
2. Improving student readiness within specific underserved community populations through partnerships with community based organizations. Development of contextualized curriculum and programs specific to the needs of particular cohorts, with the goals to acclimate them to the rigors of college study, raise their basic skills performance, and assist their adaptation to a successful student/life balance.
3. Greater awareness of the students to local industry, and local industry to our program, through field trips and guest speakers. This can be done in conjunction with the student “weld club” that already meets regularly and is interested in these opportunities, yet lacks the funds for a sufficient program.

Narrative

Construction Management Program is a small program comparatively in CTE Division. We need funds to aid in the growth and re-establishment of our department. We have seen increased growth and stability over the past four years and foresee a continued steady growth based on current industry needs in marketplace.
2. Additional funds are needed to get additional instructors to support the addition of classes and expand the program. With additional instructors more sections can be offered and multiple sections of same course can be offered to accelerate the completion of degrees for students in the program. Currently we are limited to one time each semester and we do not have sufficient staffing to have more then one section of a course at a time. This causes students not complete the degrees in a timely manner. Most students finish in 6 semesters. Program states it can be done in 3 semesters. Many complaints arise from this challenge. Department chair estimates that we lose about 1/3 of our students because they choose to transfer before the degree is complete to a CSU school or just stop completely and continue to work.
3. Increase use of technology in construction is critical to success in the field toady. Construction technology and use is on the rise at a rate of 240% over the last two years. ENR magazine anticipates (ENR Magazine June 2016) that 85% of all major projects use at least two forms of software that aid in the collection of data in the field and support administrative functions in a cloud based format. Within the next two years (2020) teams will be using at least four different software and technical tools to deliver construction data to clients and customers. Many of the tools that are onsite will require the use of software that will be used long term. Energy systems in facilities are all now computerized, and if our students do not have skill sets upon completion of the program, they will not likely find success in job market due to a void in the use of technology.
