VII.
MASTER PLAN DISCUSSION:
Back Road & Road Leading to North Loop Drive:
VIII.
Old Business:
o
Team members discussed safety issues regarding
lack of access to the courtesy phone located in
Building‐ A. Campus Police lock Building‐A at
6:00 p.m. therefore, no one has access to the
courtesy phone, nor do they have access to the
police department. Dr. Peregrino will forward
these concerns to Dr. Penley, our Campus Dean.
Dr. Penley discussed concerns about the condition of
the back road. Although the road is paved, it is not
sufficient for our transportation needs in the future.
In addition, there is limited access to the MDP
Campus. There are only two main entrances, the
access road off I‐10 and the back road.
Also, the road from MDP to North Loop is only
partially paved. This creates additional safety
concerns. Many staff and students use this road.
Yet, this road also needs major repairs and
improvements to infrastructure.
Handicap Accessible Doors on Bathrooms:
Juan Segovia discussed the issues regarding the lack
of handicap accessible doors on bathrooms at the
MDP Campus. None of the bathrooms have
handicap accessible entries. Therefore, Dr. Peregrino
will investigate to determine if handicap assessable
doors or buttons can be installed, and to ensure that
ADA guidelines are being met. Also, Dr. Peregrino
will forward these concerns to Facilities.
Tables in all Classrooms:
Juan Segovia also discussed the issue of the lack of
tables in classrooms. Often students with disabilities
cannot sit at a traditional desk. Therefore, at least
one table should be placed in all classrooms. Mr.
Segovia will do a campus walk‐thru to determine
which classrooms need tables, and will report his
findings to the Campus Dean and to Physical Plant.
Community Garden:
Dr. Penley discussed creating a “Community
Garden” at MDP. Possibly the Biology/Chemistry
departments would oversee the garden. Also, a
Community Garden would be a great project for the
Community Service Learning Students.
Additional Food Choices:
Staff and students have expressed a desire for
additional food choices at the MDP Campus.
Presently there is only one food service provider on
campus. Students and staff who desire healthy
meals, including vegetarian foods, find the current
food provider lacking in these areas. Dr. Penley will
investigate the bidding process to determine if other
food providers can be added to our campus.
Access to Courtesy Phone:
NOTE: Campus police close Building A at 6:00
pm due to their Lieutenant’s instructions.
o
Noise Issues in Building‐A:
Leticia Urenda, Student Services Manager at
MDP, expressed issues with the noise level from
the Cafeteria. Often, it is very difficult for
admissions, financial aid and cashiers to assist
students. The staff cannot hear what the students
are saying because the noise from the cafeteria is
extremely loud.
Ms. Urenda was not able to attend the IE
Meeting. Therefore, on 5‐1‐13 Leticia emailed
the following concerns regarding the noise issues
in Building A
“These are my observations which if you
surveyed the other departments you would get
similar responses. Noise level is high during
11:30 until 1:30, maybe a large friendly banner
(multi-colored) with remarks similar to:
o
o
Office area, keep noise levels down!
Testing taking place, keep noise levels
down!
I know the Police officer has come out of his
office and announced for the students to lower
their voices.
Additionally, my understanding from
conversations with some of the MDP staff is that
there used to be a glass door by the cafeteria,
which provided as a sound barrier. Maybe Mr.
Lobato from Facilities has the door available so
it may be placed again. In addition, the sofa’s by
the testing department and Dean’s office –
student conjugate there and use profanity - which
is embarrassing for other students and staff in the
general area. Maybe relocate those sofa’s
elsewhere?”
These concerns were discussed with Pascual
Martinez, Construction Supervisor, during the
meeting. He will investigate to see what changes
can be made to reduce the noise levels.

ABSENT BUT CALLED: Clarissa Martinez (moved to ASC
IE Team)
Naming of the Roads:
Dr. Peregrino reviewed the District IE Committee
Minutes for November 2006. Within those minutes,
she discovered that the MDP IE Team had already
named at least one of the interior campus roads. The
road leading from I-10 into the campus had been
named “Mission Blvd.” Dr. Peregrino included this in
the signage report that she submitted to the District
IE Committee on February 11, 2014.
ABSENT: Josue Ornelas, Jesus (Chuy) Ortiz, Jason Long

Dr. Sylvia Peregrino at 3:08 p.m.
II.
APPROVAL OF MINUTES:
Minutes for January 28, 2014 IE Meeting were
unanimously approved with no changes.
III.
UPDATES FROM DISTRICT IE COMMITTEE
MEETING: (February 11, 2014)
 Signage Report:
Dr. Peregrino submitted the MDP Signage report to
the District IE Team on 2-11-14 and to Rick Labato,
Executive Director of the EPCC Physical Plant.
Smoke Free Campuses:
EPCC will not designate campuses as completely
smoke free. However, specific smoking areas will be
designated per campus.
Healthy Living:
Water Bottle Refilling Stations will be designated at
each campus.
IV.
OLD BUSINESS:
Design Work Request: (Purchase of Blinds for
MDP Gym)
Dr. Stroud approved the purchase of blinds for the
MDP gym. The total cost of the blinds, including
installation, is $714.00. The blinds should be
installed within the next two weeks.
MDP Ice Cream/Fruit Bar Social:
IE Team Members agreed that an ice cream
social/fruit bar would be a great campus activity, but
better suited for warm weather. IE Team members
decided to table further discussion and revisit this
idea in March.
Updates (Back Road & Road Leading to North
Loop Drive)
On February 21, 2013, Dr. Peregrino received an
email response from, Willie Norfleet, City Manager
for the City of Socorro. According to the email, the
City of Socorro already has plans to begin road
V.
TREASURER’S REPORT:
As of February 25, 2014, the balance in the MDP IE
Fund is $261.00
VI.
EMPLOYEE-OF-THE-MONTH:
Vera Araiza announced the new process for
nominating an Employee of the Month is working
very well. She received over 30 nominations forms
for February. Since this new process appears to be
working well, IE Team Committee members felt it
best to continue with this process. Ms. Araiza will
continue to email Employee of the Month nomination
forms, campus wide, to every employee.
At the January IE Team Meeting, Committee
members suggested awarding Movie Tickets to
Employee of the Month winners. All members agreed
this was a great idea. Dr. Stroud approved giving
movie tickets to the winners. However the movie
theaters, will only sell tickets in groups of 50 (Total
cost $375 each ticket cost $7.50 each).
If we want to purchase fewer than 50 tickets, then we
have to purchase the tickets as “gift cards.” This
creates a problem because the college does not allow
“gift cards” as an Employee of the Month
Prize/Award. Ms. Araiza will revisit the issue with
Dr. Stroud to see if “Movie Ticket-Gift Cards” are
permissible.
After some discussion regarding this issue, IE Team
Members suggested the following alternatives:
o
o
Purchase tickets to the Chihuahua’s game
Dr. Peregrino suggested asking the other
campuses if they would also like to award
movie tickets to their Employee of the
Month Winners. If so, we can split the cost
of the movie tickets among the campuses.

VII.
NEW BUSINESS:
Spring Arts Festival:
Mr. Yarbrough brought to our attention the lack of
participation of MDP Employees/IE Team members
in the Spring Arts Festival sponsored by EPCC. The
Festival is held each year beginning in September,
and every campus, except for MDP, participates.
MDP has not participated since 2004.2005. Dr.
Penley will discuss participation in the Spring Arts
Festival with the other campus deans.
DE Registration Fair:
Tracy Von Maluski announced the upcoming DE
Registration Fair. The purpose of the fair is to inform
DE students about registration, campus resources,
career services, testing, counseling and other
services. Tracy encouraged all faculty and staff to
participate. The fair will be held at MDP on March
26, 2014 from 9:00 to 1:00, in the courtyard, weather
permitting.
ADDENDUM
Overview – Road Concerns: (Back Road Leading to I-10 &
Back Road Leading to North Loop)
Mission del Paso IE Team Meeting
February 25, 2014
Overview – Road Concerns: (Back Road Leading to I-10
& Back Road Leading to North Loop Drive)






Back roads are not officially named. Therefore, no
signage is posted: Without proper signage emergency
vehicles have difficulty navigating their way into and out
of the campus.
Back road to I-10 needs major repairs: widening,
reinforcement, and lighting.
Back road to North Loop also needs major repairs:
widening, reinforcement, and paving.
Drainage issues: Heavy rain causes major flooding and
both roads become impassable.
Increasing Traffic: Neither road can continue to support
the needs of a growing campus without major repair.
Lack of access into and out of campus: There are only
two entrances/exits into the campus.
Ownership of Roads:
There are many issues regarding ownership of the back roads.
Portions of the road belong to the county, other sections
belong to the city, and some sections belong to the Army
Corps of Engineers. Therefore, Tracy von Maluski & Dr.
Peregrino have begun researching ownership of the back
roads. Their findings were as follows:

Old Hueco Tanks Road: This is the road that leads from
MDP to North Loop. It is the property of the City of El
Paso.

The Back Road that leads from MDP to I-10 belongs to
the City of Socorro.
Official Representation:

ADJOURNMENT: Meeting adjourned at 4:08 p.m.
Motion to adjourn:
1st Motion: made by Vera Araiza
2nd Motion: made by Juan Segovia
The MDP Campus falls under the jurisdiction of
Representative Pete Gallegos, not Beto O’Rourke.
Ongoing Discussions/Plan of Action:
Dr. Penley has begusn preliminary discussions with Richard
Lobato, Executive Director of Physical Plant, and Dr. Ernst
Roberts VP of Admissions & Financial Operations. Dr.
Roberts recommended that Dr. Penley discuss the condition of
the road with elected officials in hopes of gaining their support
for improvements. Dr. Penley will discuss the matter further
with Dr. Roberts to determine the most efficient process for
getting improvements made to the back road.
Dr. Peregrino will investigate whether or not the back roads
have already been officially named. If so, signs need to be
posted if not, the IE Team would like to name the roads.

Area Improvement Plan
Recommendations for the new Plan and
updates from the previous Plan were
discussed. It was requested that Kim follow up
on the faculty parking spaces and number of
signs to see if the number requested were
installed. Students still feel there is not
enough parking, though there is still quite a bit
not being used behind Building E and behind
the Law Enforcement building. Marked
motorcycle parking with signs is still desired.
No previous minutes for approval.
Action: None

reported that the vendor was contacted and the
machine in D building will be replaced. The
machine in E building was to be serviced
today.
Action: None. Information only.
It was reported the bookstore will be open
full‐time in Spring.
Another suggested improvement was bringing

Mary Beth will contact Linda Gonzalez‐
Hensgen to gather additional information and
report back at the next meeting.
A question was brought up as to who is
responsible for the clean‐up of the public
microwave in the cafeteria. A suggestion was
made to mount cleaning wipes on the wall next
to the microwave to clean it.
Last year's report indicated a need for
increased police presence. There is still one
officer each shift. It was suggested that Team
members also keep watch this next month
regarding night time lock up by officer on
duty. If not done as has been requested by IE
Team, a Response and Outcomes Form will be
filled out and submitted.
Follow up on the recommendations on gym
improvements as reported on last year's report
will be made. It was commented that the
bench upholstery needed repair and the gym
flooring is bad.
Action: A Gym Subcommittee was formed.

Team Members discussed recommended Cost
Savings:
o Turn off lights when classes or offices are
not in use.
o Turn off equipment when not in use.
o On October 4, 2011 the Gym
Subcommittee toured the MDP gym to
assess the condition of the gym. Pictures
were taken. These photos were presented at
the IE Team Meeting. All members present
agreed the gym is in great disrepair. Much
of the equipment is torn or broken creating
both safety and sanitary issues. Baldemar
Perez suggested gym staff create a list of
priority items needed for the gym and
submit the list to the Gym Subcommittee.
With that information the subcommittee
can better determine what items are most
needed and the cost for replacement and/or
repair.
o Dr. Penley provided the following
information regarding the gym. The gym
has a yearly budget of $375. Possibly
some of that budget can be used to
replace/repair equipment.
A phone line will be installed in the Gym
for student use. Installation should occur
this semester.
Marta de la Fuente, Director of Continuing
Education, has offered assistance in
improving the gym. However, no mention
was made of monetary assistance.
Dr. Penley also suggested that
worn/damaged pieces that are stored in
gym closet be moved to EPCC warehouse.
o Barry Bogie offered several suggestions
regarding gym improvements: He
suggested having a gym fundraiser to raise
money for gym repairs. He also

volunteered to inquire with a local
company that specializes in refurbishing
gym equipment to see if current equipment
can be repaired. Also suggested contacting
local gyms to see if they are willing to
donate equipment.
VI.

Classroom Projector Screens that take up Most of
the Chalkboard Space.
Not a major problem at this time.
XI.
Employee of the Month:
Vera Araiza announced that Maria Nevarez Lozano,
Academic Tutor in the Tutorial Services Department
is the October Employee of the Month.
Faculty/Staff Parking – Students not being
ticketed.
XII.
There appears to be some confusion among EPCC
Police Officers and EPCC Staff regarding guidelines
for parking. Team Members suggested that we
review EPCC Police Department Parking Guidelines
and invite a member of the Police staff to serve on IE
Team.
Lighting:
Lighting in the main parking lots is still dark.
However, at a previous IE Team Meeting Rick
Lobato explained the current lighting cannot be
updated without major reconstruction. The current
system cannot withstand higher voltage bulbs,
Therefore in order to add brighter lights the entire
lighting system has to be redone.
Campus Police Having Faculty Office Phone
Numbers and Office Numbers Available.
Irma Hoy suggested that a master phone list be made
available to the EPCC Police Staff. Dean Penley
agreed that this could be useful to officers in case of
emergency or other situations in which officers need
to reach staff or faculty. A master list was created
many years ago by a former IE Team Member.
Cecilia Hines volunteered to forward a copy of that
list to Dean Penley’s office.
VII.
IX.
Other Business:
Computers and Printers in Part‐time Faculty office do
not work properly. Suggestion was made to contact
EPCC I.T. Department and submit work order to
have equipment serviced. Also, suggestion was made
to complete “Equipment Request Form,” and submit
form to campus Dean.
Motorcycle Parking
Back Road:
Dean Penley designated an area close to the Law
Enforcement Building for Motorcycle parking.
Hopefully motorcycle parking will be
installed/completed this semester. Dr. Penley will
follow‐up with Rick Lobato.
VIII.
Update from Team Members Regarding Police
Presence and Locking at Night:
There are still some issues regarding locking of Outer
doors too early in the evening. If outer doors are
locked faculty and students do not have access to
classrooms and offices.
Dean Penley will follow up with EPCC Police
Department.
Back road is falling into disrepair. Parts of the road
are eroding, and a large crack has formed on
Eastlake, approximately 20 feet from the signal light.
This crack has created a dangerous road hazard,
especially when turning onto Eastlake from I‐10. To
avoid hitting the bump too hard, drivers are forced to
step on their brakes unexpectedly, thus creating the
stage for rear‐end accidents.
Verbal Agreement: No snacks/food at meetings.
Money spent for snacks can be better allocated for
more useful purposes.

fundraiser be held to raise additional funds for
the gym. Mary Beth noted that a fundraiser
would need to follow college procedure.
Baldemar will have the gym staff work on a
list of vendors/prices, and Cecilia volunteered
to help them do an equipment request. It was
also suggested that items be submitted to the
furniture/equipment Replacement Committee
that Barry sits on to see if items could be
obtained via that route. Vera also stated the
gym personnel need to do a property control
form to send old and broken items back to the
warehouse. The Dean’s office would need to
sign off. Baldemar volunteered to assist gym
staff with this. The Gym Report will be placed
on the agenda monthly for updates

Dr. Penley emailed cost savings list to the Mission IE
Team for our preview earlier in the month. There was
some discussion regarding implementation of
cost‐savings ideas. Dr. Penley stated that the
President will continue to review cost saving
suggestions to determine what changes can be
implemented.
Gym:
Baldemar Perez invited Gym staffer Joshua Abraham
Ornelas to the IE Meeting to provide his professional
opinion regarding repairs and replacement of gym
floor mat and exercise equipment.
Abraham gave price estimates regarding the
replacement of the gym floor. New mats, 30 by 30,
are approximately $27.95 ea. There are a total of 117
floor mats. Because the total cost of replacement
would be well over $3,000, Abraham suggested
replacing only the damaged mats. There are
approximately 20 broken/damaged mats which pose a
safety hazard to students and staff who utilize the
gym for Jazzercise, Zumba, weight‐lifting, and other
activities.
Therefore, for safety reasons Dean Penley will
replace broken floor mats immediately at a cost of
approximately $27.95 x 20 = $559. Gym budget will
pay for approximately $325.00 dollars of the cost.

VII.
Employee of the Month:
There was much discussion regarding Employee of
the Month.
1st Motion made by: Pat Duran
2nd Motion made by: Guillermo Salas
Approved by all members present.
o
Irma Hoy expressed concern that Employee of
the Month nominees were not being selected
based on merit. Pat Duran also expressed some
concerns regarding this issue.
Additional comments regarding the gym:
It was suggested to install an electronic entry device
so that janitors, staff and students can gain access to
the gym as needed.
Cecilia Hines stated that she was pleased with
Employee of the Month selection process. Her
tutors that won did so by merit and were truly
proud and grateful to be acknowledged.
Gym floor is not being cleaned on a regular basis by
janitors because the janitorial staff does not have
keys to the area. Therefore the gym staff has taken
on the responsibility of cleaning floors and gym
equipment. Dr. Penley stated that gym floors should
be cleaned by janitorial staff. This is a part of their
contract duties. Dr. Penley will look into the matter.
VI.
o
Rotation list – Barry Bogle wondered if we
should disregard rotation list and return to the
old method of selecting Employee of the Month.
However, the IE Team agreed the old method
didn’t work because no one took the time to
nominate employees.
o
The IE Team reviewed the current Employee of
the Month selection process. Although there was
some discussion regarding the efficiency of the
current process, it was decided that it was best to
maintain the current process until the selection
cycle is completed. The Mission IE Team will
revisit the selection process when the current
cycle is completed.
o
At the January IE Team Meeting, it was decided
to purchase the “Floating Pen Desk Set with
Memo Pad at $30 each. Vera Araiza informed
the IE Team today that we received a discount so
the sets are instead $26.00 each. Vera purchased
seven of these items. The first one will be
awarded to the February Employee of the Month.

Cement posts:
There are several cement posts in the
courtyard with bolts sticking out of them. At
one point there were lights on each post.
However, the lights were removed last
semester because they no longer worked,
leaving behind a bare post. These posts are not
only an eyesore but also a safety hazard.
Someone can easily trip or fall over the
remaining posts. Dr. Penley will follow up
with maintenance to see if the posts can be
completely removed.

IE Focus:
Much discussion occurs at the District IE meetings
regarding IE Focus. Some teams have voiced both
concern and frustration regarding IE focus,
responsibility, and parameters. At MDP, IE Members
agree that an appropriate focus should be project
based improvements. For the current term,
improving gym facilities has been the focus of the
MDP IE Committee. Mary Beth Haan asked us to
remain forward thinking and to consider what
projects should be addressed during the next IE
Term.

regarding placement/location of the bike rack.
Several campuses mentioned that campus flags need

Bicycle Rack:
April District IE Meeting:
The new bicycle rack has arrived and will probably

yet still easily accessible for bike riders.
Josette Shaughnessy, Director of AVP, Budget and
Financial Services attended the District IE Meeting
and discussed the current EPCC budget of
approximately 170 million dollars. This is a tight
operating budget for EPCC. Seventy five percent of
the budget is used for personnel expenses (salaries).
Josette Shaughnessy also encouraged IE Teams to
forward facility emergencies to her. She can’t
promise immediate repairs, but she can bring
awareness to any facility situations that require
immediate attention.

Green Committee’s charge and the Sustainability
Report.
Artwork Displays:
David Trimble, although not present at the meeting,
requested the committee consider a place on campus
where students can display their art. The committee
briefly considered a few possibilities, such as the
cafeteria (which seemed to be the most logical
choice), the hallway walls around the campus, and
the library entrance. The committee decided to revisit
this subject during the next school year.
Celebrating Earth Month/Campus Clean‐up:
MDP Clean‐up day was held on Monday 4‐23‐12.
There was a good turn‐out. Great participation
among staff and students. Also Green Committee
members were happy to see that overall the MDP
Campus is very clean. Some cigarette butts were
found in a few bushes, but overall the campus is well
maintained.

April, Employee of the Month: Joshua Villalobos
Guillermo Salas informed the committee that the
employee of the month for April is Joshua Villalobos.
The ESL department will select May’s employee of
the month.
Barry Bogle recommended finding a grant that
promotes campus gardening. Creating a campus
garden would give students the opportunity to learn
about landscaping in the desert southwest; while at
the same time, helping to beautify the campus.
Committee members agreed this was a great idea.
Reminder: Employee of the month parking space:
Since employees are selected at the end of the month,
on the 20th the employee of the month will use the
designated parking space on the following month.
For example: employee of the month for March will
use the space in April.
Facility Priority List:
Mary Beth Haan distributed the Facility Priority List
for committee review. She noted that many of the
MDP Facility improvements such as the cafeteria
expansion and full‐time bookstore have already been
completed. Mary Beth will update and post a current
Facility Priority List.

treasury this year, so discussion on how to
spend the monies followed. Pat Duran
suggested buying all EOM mall certificates
from SIMON Inc. and any non-perishable items
(drinks and trail mixes) in bulk. Pat made a
motion to buy everything in bulk and at the
beginning of this fiscal year. This is to provide
a more accurate account balance for the IE to
decide how to spend the money the rest of the
year, and all receipts will be submitted to Pat
instead of Maria at Dean’s office. Motion was
made and approved.

New Business:
1.
Writing Center: Robert Yarbrough
English Faculty is requesting a “Writing
Assistant Center”, where students can receive
assistance in writing, and there are qualified
tutors for this. Our computers labs do not
have anyone available to help with writing,
and the tutoring centers do not have enough
space.
2.
Janitorial Services: Lesley Pullen
MdP has witnessed poor and neglectful
janitorial services and the I.E. committee
wants to bring this serious matter to the
district IE. Various MdP employees need to
remind the janitors to throw the trash, keep
bathrooms clean, re-fill bathroom soap
dispensers, and vacuum all carpeted areas.
MdP has even been spending “MdP money”
on purchasing cleaning products, like
plungers, disposable gloves, and even a
carpet-sweeper. MdP is submitting letters
and emails from different MdP employees,
where they state they have to provide their
own cleaning supplies and even do their own
cleaning because this company is not doing
its job. A phone number has been posted on
bathroom doors to contact Israel Banuelas
(Maintenance Services). He has failed to
solve the cleaning bathroom issues. Even
when contacted, he ignored concerns brought
up by our employees (read an email from
Juan Segovia).
The men’s bathroom in E building has had an
odor, which faculty, staff and students have
had to bare. Rooms C-120 and B102 have
had chalk dust and stains on the carpet all
semester. It is the opinion of this committee,
that EPCC funds are being spent ineffectively
by having this contract with GCA, or by the
janitorial supervisor neglecting to do his job.
The MdP Chair spoke with the majority of
the janitors and all of them requested more
cleaning supplies (see list by Marco Gomez
given to Baldomero (Waldo) Casares).
During spring break, this company, GCA, has
a contract with the college to bring janitors to
do their “quarterlies”-- cleaning that includes
waxing all floors, stripping and shampooing,
cleaning all windows, and high dusting.
Nothing was done over spring break, and the
Campus Maintenance Technician (Waldo)
was lied to by Ruben Chavez about sending
people over during spring break (see attached
letter from Waldo Casares). Also, some
faculty came to MdP during the break on
different days and nobody remembers seeing
anyone from GCA cleaning on the days they
were here. The I.E. Chair has emailed Israel
Banuelas asking for the following: the
number staff which worked during spring
break, how many hours, and their list of

duties. We are waiting on his response.
Pictures the Tuesday after spring break were
taken of MdP campus, showing the poor
quality of janitorial services over spring
break. Janitors have been found eating while
trash cans are overflowing with trash, in
bathrooms, cafeteria, and even floors. The
day of the health fair, April 7, outdoor trash
bins were left overflowing with pizza boxes
next to them until the morning after, April 8,
2008. There is even a large and disturbing
spider web growing on the top right corner of
our cafeteria window (place which supposed
to be the cleanest). This is the same
window/garage door which Tim Nugent
mentioned at the meeting with the architect
they would be working on during this
semester to expand the cafeteria. There are
many letters which were copied and handed
to Dr. Stroud during the district-IE meeting
(April 8, 2008) on the growing janitorial
concerns. If you need to contact anyone for
verification on any of the above information
please call 831-7053(2280) Waldo
(Baldomero) Casarez (Campus Maintenance
Technician), Richard (Ricardo) Chavez
(Manager) or Edith Aguirre (I.E. Chair).

Welcome: Irma Hoy, chair, called the meeting to order at

Minutes: Minutes were not presented.
Election of Third Representative and Secretary: Cynthia
Kabariti was asked to continue as Secretary. She accepted,
and was thanked by everyone. Edith Aguirre, Baldemar Perez
and Blayne Primozich were nominated for the position of third
representative. Following a vote, Edith Aguirre was selected
to serve as the third representative.
Charitable Contributions: Irma Hoy said that charitable
contribution request forms were sent through the inter-campus
mail. She requested that we make sure to specify Mission del
Paso as our home campus so that the campus receives due
credit for all contributions. No one else received the form
through the mail.
McCliff Vending: Irma Hoy mentioned that stale cookies are
being dispensed from the machines. McCliff was contacted,
and George from McCliff agreed to attend the next IE
meeting. He told Irma Hoy that the request can be made to
change to Coca-Cola products. Santiago Rodriguez said
E.P.C.C. has a contract with Pepsi-Cola, and it is not that easy
to change.
Signs: Irma Hoy asked when the campus will get the signs.
Tracy Von Maluski wanted to know if it’s possible to get the
sign for building ‘E’ which has no sign at all. Miguel
Contreras informed the committee that at the district meeting,
it was mentioned that Valle Verde will receive their signs first.
IE Committee Budget: Irma Hoy asked committee members
to think of how to spend the $666.00 allotted to the campus
IE. Suggestions are as follows: beverage cups, etc. for the IE
meetings, a better tape recorder for the secretary to use for the
minutes, refreshments, and chairs for the courtyard. Santiago
Rodriguez said if not spent, the money returns to the general
fund, and to think of something for next meeting.
Parking and Access Road Task Force: Miguel Contreras
stated that only he and Cynthia and Pat are on this task force
and we could use more volunteers. He also asked if Mr.
Aguirre from the H. S. has been vocal about needing the
access road. Santiago Rodriguez said that the board is talking
about boundaries in executive session. He also mentioned that
the board gives all taxpayers access to speak at their meetings.
Tonie Badillo suggested the IE go to the board meetings every
month and address the access road issue. Miguel Contreras
will call Mr. Aguirre to get his cooperation, also. Sarah John
would like to bring it up to her students in class. Tracy Von
Maluski, Sarah John, and Rosa Arroyo volunteered to join the
task force.
New Business:
Bathroom Ventilation: Pat Duran brought up the need for
better ventilation in the women’s restroom in Building C
because of the bad smell. Cyndi stated that Building D also
smells bad because the drains under the vending machines
need to be flushed out. Irma Hoy said Waldo has been
consulted and is working on it.
Portables: Sarah John asked if it were possible to bring in
portables since MDP is short on classroom and office space.
Irma Hoy said the 2007 Bond Election, if passed, will address
the need for new buildings. Sara John said we could possibly
use portables as a meeting room. Clara Topete said one could
be used as a Testing Center. All agreed portables are nice and
that there is plenty of acreage to place them on campus. Sarah
John will head a committee looking into the possibility of
acquiring portables and wants suggestions as to what they can
be used for. Volunteers for this committee are Pat Duran,
Rosa Arroyo, Clara Topete Miguel Contreras and Guillermo
Salas. Tracy Von Maluski would like to take the idea of
scanning paperwork and digitally storing it instead of being
stored by the Dean’s Office and taking up office space.
Cafeteria: Irma Hoy asked Juan Segovia if there are other
options to the removal of the Cafeteria doors. Clara Topete
said Building A smells bad when food is burned in the
Cafeteria. Blayne asked if the Cafeteria could possibly be

moved to a portable. Miguel asked what happened to the
microwave. Santiago said the food vendors are storing it until
the cafeteria expansion is finished. Tonie asked who is paying
for the cafeteria expansion. Santiago said the college is
paying for some of it.
Smart Classroom: Blayne asked if more LCD projectors will
be installed. Santiago said a Smart Classroom was promised
to us and is coming. Room C120 will be converted to a Smart
Classroom.
Furniture: Pat asked if it were possible to get more furniture
indoors for the students. Everyone would also like to see the
tables and benches returned to outside of the buildings. Lesley
says students sit on window sills. Santiago said Waldo will be
notified, and he will bring more outdoor furniture out from
storage.
Adjournment: With no more business to discuss, the meeting
was adjourned at 4:15.

District IE: Miguel Contreras was nominated as chair for the

campus was discussed. Miguel feels we should not have to pay
$37.00 out of this amount for the plaques given at the end of
the year. He plans on asking for more money to cover this at
district tomorrow. As for signage, we are not considered a
priority campus for receiving the signs.
Outdoor Tables and Chairs: Miguel received a letter from
faculty member, Dr. Wesling, regarding the need for more
tables and chairs. He feels there is nowhere else for students to
go since the LRC does not allow talking, and the cafeteria is
too small and noisy. He also requested a larger part-time
office. Suggestion was made that we should use the money
allotted to IE to purchase tables and chairs.

immediate and long-term, and predictions on growth in the
area. Baldemar Perez would like the idea for a larger gym
be specifically stated as a basketball court-sized gym that
can also be used as an auditorium. Juan Segovia would
like to add a testing room for CSD and/or an office for Bill
Rudnick. Mary Maurais would like to add a double locked
storage area for all Health Occupations departments here
to comply with HIPPA regulations. The list will be
prioritized by the sub-committee before being reported to
the District IE in about three weeks. Juan Segovia asked
that a tutoring lab for CSD students be added to the list.
Pat Duran expressed concern that Grace Erivez has too
much space for a one-person office that can maybe be used
by CSD or another department. Will we need a second
dean if the campus continues to grow? The ratio is 2000
students to one dean. A motion was made by Dr. Coates
to approve the list as read and seconded by Baldemar
Perez. Motion passed unanimously.
D. Open Issues
Parking lot lighting update: Pat Duran reported that
changing the frosted bulbs to brighter bulbs would add
more illumination. Cement walls would not help. Money
is available to change all of them, and she has a call in to
Chief Grijalva. Waldo should be notified of any burnt-out
light bulbs.
Drinking and Driving event: Pat Duran reported that
Tuesday, April 11th will be the third annual event. The
Education 1301 students will be organizing the event.
Evening faculty is asked to invite all evening students to
participate.
Employee Parking: The subcommittee held the first
meeting which was an exploratory meeting. The main
question is do we really need designated parking? Where
will it be, and who will be able to use it? Pat Duran has a
call in to Chief Grijalva and to the Dean at NWC to find
out the process and what was done as far as designated
parking at NWC.
Back Road: Tracy feels that the back road is more
pressing than parking. Santiago Rodriguez stated that it is
a political issue that must be handled as such by attending
open forums and bringing it up. There are three slot
vacancies on the board, and this would be a good issue to
have candidates address.
Janitorial Service: The woman working on Saturdays
comes in for three hours. She is here basically to empty
trash cans, and check supplies in bathrooms. It was voiced
that maybe the company should be called to see what can
be done about this.
E. Other Business
Santiago Rodriguez informed us of upcoming events:

and the officer was sent from Valle Verde, which took too

needs to be sent in soon to the executive I. E. and asked if
there were any more comments. There was nothing to be
added.
Blayne brought up the issue of students collapsing after
giving blood at the last blood drive on campus. Officer
Lujan asked that 911 be called immediately in cases like
this, and to not wait for campus police to show up.
Motion was made by Blayne Primozich that the MDP
IE make a request to the District IE that to protect the
health and safety of our students, we demand that
United Blood Services provide properly trained staff
and follow proper drawing procedures during blood
drives due to several medical emergencies here on
campus during previous blood drives. Helen Robert
seconded the motion and it passed unanimously. Tonie
also mentioned that UBS was knocking on doors and
interrupting classes. Santiago said Faculty should tell the
UBS people not to interrupt. Tonie Badillo will bring up
these issues at the next District IE meeting.
Irma Hoy mentioned her office was ransacked during
Spring Break, and a mug was taken. Clara Topete said a
test dropped off in the testing center was thrown away by
the weekend cleaning staff. Miguel wants to know if Bldg.
E is accessible to the cleaning staff because it is not being
cleaned.
Miguel Contreras mentioned that at the District IE, David
Mena let them know that other campuses have problems
with repairs and the facilities, and they did not know who
to contact at VV. We don’t have those problems because
we have Waldo.
Miguel Contreras said there is an article in the “El
Conquistador” about nursing students complaining about
the lack of tutoring. Cecilia Hines said her supervisor
knows and that the issue has been addressed.

B. Parking Sub-committee Report
Miguel Contreras informed the committee that the Parking

employee designated parking. What is needed is more
visitor designated parking. The sub-committee decided to
focus on an access road from the college. The subcommittee would like more people to join the subcommittee. Miguel will go to the forum to be held
tomorrow at the Valle Verde campus for people running
for the board of trustees and ask them what their plans are
for an access road at MDP. Motion was made by Miguel
Contreras and seconded by Blayne Primozich to
disband the employee parking subcommittee and
rename it the Parking and Access Road Investigation
Task Force, and change its focus to the access road.

report that was turned in to District IE. Miguel Contreras

sensors for building E are being worked on.

they will make good shaded area for students.
Miguel Contreras said that Dr. Stroud commented on the
fainting students during the blood drives when it was
brought up to him. He said something to the effect that
people need to follow directions more carefully when they
give blood. He also agreed to not barge in on classes
unless invited in by the instructor. Blayne said United
Blood Services offered to pay one of the fainting students’
ambulance rides, but they have not answered her telephone
calls.
