possibility of funding multiple projects per
campus up to $5,000.
A.
B.
Gerry Perez mentioned resource fair expenses
so far included copies ($1.50) and food
(burritos & coffee $65).
Rudy Hernandez expressed his concern about
someone else dictating / selecting the final
proposal, instead of the campus team
prioritizing; why don't we get to vote on our
own projects.
Rebecca Escamilla introduced the new Officers
as not all of the committee members were in
attendance when the elections were held in
September. Gerry Perez, Co-Chair; Mary
Ervin, Secretary with Jose Pacheco and Lorely
Ambriz as back up secretaries. Introductions of
all members were done since the committee
had grown to include many more new
members. It was suggested to move the
committee meetings to a larger room to
accommodate the larger committee size.

Gerry Perez gave an update on the resource
fair; will be held 9:00am - 12:00pm on October
15th; thirteen campus offices and an Army

NW Campus Resource Fair Update
Selection of Campus Improvement Teams’
Recommended Site Improvement Plans
There was confusion as to whether each
campus could select only one project or could
allocate the funding for multiple projects that
would total no more than $5,000; the members
felt that each campus should be able to govern
where the funding went; Rebecca Escamilla
explained that the process has been organized
to allow the district teams to make the final

selection in order to prevent any appearance of
favoritism in the selection of projects at a
campus.
C.
Each Campus Team needs an elected Financial
Officer: Elvia Guzman-Jarnagin was
nominated by Veronica Miramontes and
seconded by Gerry Perez; Elvia was elected by
acclimation.
Committee members who sponsored various
potential projects explained their proposals:


Rudy Hernandez: Signage in the lobby of
the main building that will direct students
to support services and instructor’s offices
throughout the entire campus. Providing
students with a centralized location for this
information should improve their
experiences and ability to navigate the
campus.
Mary Ervin, Gerry Perez, and Veronica
Miramontes: Providing additional seating
for students by purchasing 10 benches in
total, 3 for the C building, 3 for the library
and 4 for the main building. The benches
are made of recycled plastic bags and can
be bolted in place. This will allow students
to sit in places around campus and develop
a connection with their classmates and
instructors.

Lorely Ambriz: Library Bench Proposal
for additional seating and trash cans to
enhance the Hummingbird garden.
The committee voted to select which project
would be ranked as first, second, third, and
alternate selection; the additional seating
proposal was selected as first, signage second,
the Community Garden third, and the Library
proposal for the Hummingbird Garden the
alternate.
B.
D.
V.
Jose Pacheco and Rebecca Escamilla: The
Community Garden is a multiphase, long
term goal for this campus. The plans have
been developed by students who will also
maintain the garden. The proposed
location for the garden is along the
sidewalk from the bus stop to the cafeteria.
Physical Plant will work with the students
and Biology department in establishing the
final location and irrigation system for the
garden. The garden aligns with the QEP
and integrates many disciplines including
art and biology and is open to others.
Phase I would include the building of
planting beds and planting fruit trees that
are adapted to this region. Ultimately the
goal is to be able to provide fruits and
vegetables to the school cafeteria and local
food banks.

Mosquitos in the C Building: Mosquito issues
present in the C building and library - Rebecca
Escamilla will contact physical plant
Election of Financial Officer
Testing Center Situations: Veronica
Miramontes reported that the issues had been
resolved.
Other Business
A.
Dub reported that the bathrooms across from
the Computer Lab have had pictures go
missing and are being left in a messy
condition; Della inquired about air freshener
request, Veronica reported that janitorial
services had said that potential allergic
reactions to the fresheners meant that they
could not be placed in the bathrooms.
B.
The corner sink near faculty offices in the main
building is being clogged with food again (this
is making the sinks in the bathrooms clog too);
a sign reminding people to not place food or
coffee grounds in the sink will be placed next
to the sink and a new screen for the drain will
be bought if needed.
C.
Mary reported that some of the electric switch
plates are lacking covers and pose a shock
hazard; this will be referred to Physical Plant.
D.
Gerry reported that the Faculty and Staff
parking signs are fading due to sun exposure;
students are using this as an excuse to park in
these spaces; also concerned about the use of
the main entrance cross walk to park, drop off,
or pick up students; blocking the crosswalk and
driving in it pose hazards to students and
others; it was suggested that we designate a
drop off site that would be less congested and
safer; a temporary site along side of the library
was suggested; the traffic circle was suggested
as a permanent drop off zone once sidewalks
were provided; we will need a no stopping and
standing sign, and a sign to designate the
appropriate site.
Dr. Tena mentioned that it is one of the
recommendations within the master plan to use
the round-about as a permanent drop off point

Welcome and Approval of Minutes
Dr. Escamilla informed the team that the
district team meeting was extremely positive.
Everyone at the district made a considered
effort to fund all proposals submitted. Dr.
Escamilla proceeded to inform the committee
of some of the approved proposals for the other
campus sites. Several campuses shared some of
their money to help other campuses get their
proposals funded. NW campus was second in
the amount received (TM was awarded the
most). It was mentioned that continued funding
of proposals will likely be perennial.

by Gerry Perez; the October 2014 minutes
were approved.
III.
Rudy Hernandez asked for clarification of why
we didn’t get to choose how the full $5000
could be spent, instead of going through
committee voting. Rebecca Escamilla
informed that the meeting was so positive, she
did not want to ask at that time. Chair will ask
at next district meeting.

Jose Pacheco’s and Rebecca Escamilla’s
Garden proposal: funded
$1400.00 with stipulation: only a Chihuahuan
Desert Garden can be established, instead of a
Community Garden. Deal struck with Facilities
stating that they would fund the additional
$2500 for seating/benches if only Desert
Garden established.
Dr. Tena asked for a clarification of the
difference between a Desert Garden vs. a
Community Garden. Dr. Escamilla informed
the team that the difference was with the type
of plants. Dr. Escamilla and Dr. Pacheco also
met with Denise Rodriguez from the Texas
Gerry Perez informed committee that the next
3 cakes for EOM from Coldstone Creamery
have already been paid for.

Faculty and Staff Parking Signage and Student
Drop Off Zone
Veronica Miramontes discusses issues with a
particular student coming into the cafeteria
after hours through a side door that appears to
be broken. Dr. Tena asked if the side door to
the cafeteria had been fixed and was informed,
not to date. Dr. Tena will submit a work order
request. Dr. Tena wants anyone from the team
or from the campus to call the Dean’s office to
report any similar issues in the future so they
can be forwarded to facilities immediately.
Rebecca Escamilla was not able to get further
information as the district meeting spent the
entire session funding proposals and no other
business was discussed.
Dr. Tena stated that this will be addressed
during the master plan and that it may be more
appropriate to wait until then.
Gerry Perez also mentioned that although
directories will be addressed during the Master
Plan, it may take a few years before we see any
new signage, so until then we could address
with facilities.
F.
Veronica Miramontes informed that the
cleaning crew has continuously found a young
lady sleeping in the building. Police were
contacted and escorted the young lady home
(she is a current NW student). The student
keeps entering the door and it must be fixed.

Possible Long term NW Campus Adoption
Project—Rio Grande
Rebecca Escamilla discussed that EPCC
adopted a small stretch of the Rio Grande as
part of the Adopt a River program. It is in
Canutillo, very close to the NW campus.
Naomi Waissman, Director of the Service
Learning Department, asked Rebecca
Escamilla if the Biology Department will
house the Adopt a River program. Rebecca
Escamilla asked the team if the NW campus
would be interested in adopting the Rio Grande
(campus wide adoption). Dr. Tena asked what
“adopting” meant. Rebecca Escamilla
explained that it is similar to our campus clean
ups.
Veronica Miramontes informed the team of the
exact location of the stretch of river:
approximately a 2 mile stretch. Two dates for
the river clean up were suggested: Make a
Difference Day and Earth Day. Saturdays
would be the preferred days. Rebecca
Escamilla and Veronica Miramontes
participated in last semester’s event which was
9-11:30, so a couple of hours. Many ECHS
students and service learning students
participated at that event.
The team voted unanimously to participate in
the Adopt a River program for this stretch of
the Rio Grande.

November 25 meeting: Rebecca

to Rudy’s question on why the
campuses are not allowed to select the
proposals, why does it need to go
through the current selection processRebecca explained that the system of
checks and balances used to select
which proposals to fund rather than
allowing the individual Campus
Improvement Committee to decide
funding were designed to insure that all
ideas were reviewed and avoid any
appearance of cronyism or pet projects

Police; the door is repaired.

March 27 Science Café is the Urban
Agriculture event likely from 12-2 pm
(confirmation on times will be
announced); we will have guest
speakers and information tables for
various types of gardening occurring in
the city; we are collaborating with
instructors from Transmountain campus
who will have students help with the
event as well. Rebecca Escamilla asked
Lorely Ambriz if it would be okay to
use the library for the event and she said
yes; it will be perfect since the
Hummingbird Reading Garden is there;
Rebecca Escamilla will advertise the
event not just to faculty, staff, and
students, but also the general public.
This Science Cafe has just been
approved to be part of the Tejano
Passport Program via Dr. Andi Quiroz
and Dr. Gertrude Konings.

April 24 Science Café is the Science
Expo likely from 12-2 pm (confirmation
of times will be announced); Rebecca
Escamilla wants students to present
posters or oral presentation of science
projects being conducted, science issues
like health and disease, and
environmental projects; she wants it to
be interdisciplinary as well; she asks the
committee members to encourage their
students to attend the event, maybe even
offer extra credit; Melissa Esmacher
asks if her students could participate
and allow them to present the history of
science and scientists, Rebecca
Escamilla loves the idea; she asks
others faculty to participate in this
manner as well; Rebecca would also
like to offer awards for the best poster
presentation and the best oral
presentation. Dr. Kalantarian asks if we
will need judges, and Rebecca said yes,

Use of Approved Vendors for the funded
proposals
Rebecca Escamilla mentions that at the last
Campus Improvement Meeting, Dr. Gross
highly encouraged the use of approved vendors
when filling orders for items funded though the
project proposals; it is a much easier process.
In addition, Dr. Gross mentions that not all
orders for the selected proposals have gone
through and she is waiting for them. Rebecca
Escamilla asked the funded proposal writers if
they are aware of the steps they need to go
through to begin ordering their items. Rudy
said yes, and Mary needs to speak with
Veronica and Gerry about the benches.
B.
Sustainability of Proposed Projects
Rebecca Escamilla discusses a topic addressed
at the Campus Improvement Team Meeting;
committee members asked who is responsible
for the long term care and funding of some of
the more long-term projects that were
approved- Dr. Gross said that she assumed that
the writers of the proposal knew they would be
in charge of caring for their projects. Rebecca
Escamilla asks the committee to keep
sustainability of projects in mind when writing
proposals. Discussion of who was responsible
for the sustainability of the funded projects was
resolved with the original applicant for the
project being responsible for the ongoing
maintenance of each project.
C.
Campus Police Wheelchairs
Mary Ervin mentions that Northwest Campus
Police requested that a wheelchair be made
available on campus for emergency situations.
Rudy Hernandez offered to donate one. It was
also suggested that a blood pressure monitor be
available on campus and that someone could

The bookstore is not getting book
orders correct. Book orders were turned
in months ahead of time and when the
bookstore opened, the wrong books
were ordered. A better system with
order confirmations would be better
than the current system. NWC IE team
asked that this be brought up at the
District IE.
Vending Machine in front of Math Lab
The candy machine in front of the Math Lab is
creating problems. Students are noisy when
purchasing items and when things get stuck,
they are banging on the machine and disrupting
the students in the Math Lab. Additionally,
when the gentleman shows up to refill the
machine, he blocks the door to the Math Lab
with his cart and boxes of supplies. The
personnel in the Math Lab are asking that the
machine be moved to another location. Gerry

about this problem and that the Dean’s office

Parking
Past NWC IE Chair Nader Rassaei worked

that the police will ticket vehicles illegally
parked in faculty/staff areas only during the
first two weeks of the semesters. This will be
done district wide.
Beautification plans were discussed and the
idea that IE perform program reviews was
also discussed but tabled. The President
stressed that he wanted to see past work done
by the IE completed i.e. beautification.
The President was informed that individual
IE teams used to have a large budget and was
asked if that would be possible again. He
responded that current budgets did not allow
for that but perhaps in the future that could be
reinstated.

Signage -- District IE has asked we come
up with a plan for signage by the end of
the year. Plans will be submitted to DIE.
Budget -- District-wide, IE teams are
asking for a budget of 5000-6000. This
would be used for special projects
proposed by the site IE teams.
3.
Smoke-free College -- This idea has not
yet been presented to the President. SGA
is doing research on how other colleges in
Texas are handling smoke/tobacco free
ideas. For now, NWC can designate
smoking areas.
4.
Faculty parking Enforcement -- Police
will be giving warnings for the first week,
and then will issue citations for those not
in compliance.
5.
History Committee -- This committee is
not yet formed. Site IEs are supposed to
recommend individuals to be interviewed.
If interested in becoming part of this
committee, please inform site Chair who
will forward names to DIE. NMSU is
videotaping interviews which might be a
good idea for here.
C.
New NWC IE Team member
NWC IE welcomes Steve Scott from Campus
Life as our newest IE Team member.
D.
Designation of New Smoking Areas
Signs are needed first to designate a smoking
area. We will try to make it as attractive as
possible with benches, ashtrays, and signs
designating said area. After signage is in place,
the police are then able to enforce said area.
Mary Ervin will investigate the program Las
Cruces is using to get free benches made out of
recycled plastic to see if we qualify. We need
to analyze the C building to see where a
designated smoking area could be located.
Career Center Update
No one has received a reply to any questions
about the return of the Career Center. If we do
hear back, please relay any info to the Dean.
She will be contacting Carla Cardoza to ask
them to release the office if they do not plan to
re-open it soon.
F.
Space Utilization Committee -- Gerry
Perez’ name was forwarded to the DIE as
NWC IEs representative for this
committee. Dr. Tena is on the Ft. Bliss
Instructional Committee which is
recommending programs to be available
at Ft. Bliss.
Employee of the Month
EOM for March is Kimberly McBroom

6.
Active Shooter -- Debbie Luna has asked
that the current active shooter
presentation by the Chief be made more
site specific. Northwest is a campus with
many windows and the response here
would be different than at any other
campus. The Dean’s office will check to
see if the glass in our campus is breakable
to aid in escape or not. Debbie Luna is
creating a Safety Taskforce to look at the
NWC and check for
shortcomings/strengths and come up with
a plan in case of an active shooter. Chief
will be at the NWC Division Meeting to
be held April 29, 2013 from 3-4 p.m. and
we hope to be able to ask him site specific
questions.

Hilda Taylor states that the C Building has had
intermittent access to the internet for the past three
weeks. Perhaps there is a problem with the wireless
internet. Dean asks that people call 6440 and report
the problem.
This is an ongoing problem that has been
brought up to several different NWC IE
Teams. A related item is that the doors to the C
building fling open when it is windy. NWIE
will revive this issue and Chair will bring it up
at DIE.

Outside Benches
Mary Ervin will check into the program Las

perhaps students could do the repairs needed
on the current benches as a service learning

check with Arvis Jones to see if the is possible.

OLD BUSINESS:
A.
Physical Plant Update - Dead bushes
around the main Building:
Dr. Lydia Tena reported that the physical
plant has planned to cut back the dead bushes
around the three buildings just as soon as
time and resources are available. According
to Mr. Richard Lobato, removal of dead
bushes around the buildings is a priority since
they present a potential fire hazard; however,
there is no set date to remove them.
B.
IV.
NEW BUSINESS:
A.
Financial Officer - Last year the Chair Elect
served as the financial officer for the
Northwest IE committee. Therefore, it was
suggested that Dr. Jose Pacheco-Lucero, the
current Chair Elect for this year continue
with this charge.
B.
Cost-Saving Measures - Dr. Roberts
requested that all of the IE district wide
committees discuss cost-saving measures at
our meetings and make recommendations.
Dub Satterfield, Jesse Ramirez, and Gerry
Perez, pointed out that the faculty had
already put forth and submitted to the Faculty
Senate the Northwest campus IE ideas last
spring 2011. It was agreed that we would
inquire from Dr. Stroud how we could
retrieve that information so we can resubmit
and comply with Dr. Robert’s request.
Cost-Saving Ideas:
1.
Dr. Taylor suggested that all the
computers and electrical office
equipment be turned off on Fridays so
we could cut down the electricity bill.
This idea is also being considered by the
Green Committee as a measure to cut
down on utility expenditures.
2.
Monica Wong suggested that we could
cut down the cost of printing if the
college looked at what other institutions
have done to set up efficient costreduction printer systems that could cut
down the cost of paper and toner and
unnecessary waste of paper. Dr. Tena
and Monica Wong suggested that maybe
the college could come up with a
standard system throughout the college
where students could print anywhere.
3.
Dr. Hilda Taylor inquired about mail
duplication. EPCC is supposed to be
going GREEN and hard copies are still
been sent via intercampus mail even
though the same information has already
been sent via intercampus email.
Cotton Tail Rabbits at the Northwest
Campus:
Dr. Hilda S. Taylor reported that she had
contacted the CHIHUAHUAN DESERT
WILDLIFE RESCUE IN EL PASO and according
to Debbie Lofton the best time to remove the
dead vegetation outside the main building
would be during the months of November
through December when there are no baby
cottontail rabbits. Cottontail rabbits in the
Chihuahuan Desert breed twice a year. They
have their first litter during the months of
March to April and the second litter during
the first two weeks of August. She was also
informed that cottontail rabbits do not dig
deep in the ground nest burrows instead they
dig a slight depression in the ground in areas
where there is dense grass or other vegetation
that conceals their nest. In the Chihuahuan
Desert, cottontail rabbits may dig a
depression maybe only a couple of inches
from the ground and not deep burrows like
domestic rabbits do. Therefore, the removal
of the dead bushes wouldn’t hurt in the
cottontail rabbits. However removal of roots

Dr. Jose Pacheco, suggested that
Northwest as well as the rest of the
campuses could cut down on water cost
if the plants that died last winter were
replaced with endemic Chihuahuan
Desert plants. Desert vegetation requires
less water and thus would result in water
cost reduction.
5.
In order to save paper, Gerry Perez
suggested the use of clickers and Dr.
Pacheco suggested on-line quizzes. The
use of clickers provides instant tally for
all, students and instructors and would
reduce the cost of paper.
6.
7.
8.
Dr. Pacheco also suggested that EPCC
could cut down on costs, if we allowed
students to buy their own Scantrons
instead of EPCC absorbing the cost.
Gerry Perez suggested we could do
classroom evaluations on-line rather than
on paper. Dr. Tena explained that
unfortunately on-line evaluations do not
provide robust evaluations because only
a few students take time to fill them out.
Dub Satterfield suggested we send
emails campus wide, asking for
suggestions as to how to cut down costs.
Dr. Tena suggested announcing it in the
newspaper and possibly setting up
suggestion boxes. Location of the
suggestion boxes was also discussed and
it was agreed that they could be set up
along the hallway, in the ACS lab and in
the front area of the main building. Dr.
Taylor also suggested sending emails to
all faculty and staff.
V.
Membership - Dub Satterfield pointed out that since
Peggy Gustafson and Jim Lambrinos the Northwest IE
Committee were not members of the committee there
were two vacant slots. In order to fill these vacant
slots, it was agreed that Dr. Taylor would send formal
letters to invite the following people to serve as the IE
Committee at Northwest: Mrs. Ivette Savina, Principal
for the Northwest Early College High School, Police
Officers, Mr. Robert Aguilar, NECHS Liaison, and
Mr. Raul Hernandez, Student Government. Dr. Tena
explained that the IE Committees at Mission del Paso
and at Northwest are basically open to anyone
interested in serving unlike other campuses.
VI.
CAMPUS SIGNAGE – Gerry Perez and Dub
Satterfield would look into getting a building location
map to be placed in each building.
VII.
EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH – The committee
reviewed the nominees for employee of the month,
voted, and nominated Maria Luisa Cereceres as the
employee of the month of November 2011.

C.
As part of the cost-savings discussion, many
members brought up the issue of duplication
of effort. For example, the Faculty Senate
had already submitted district-wide proposals
and no one was sure what had been done with
that list. Mary Ervin agreed to look into it.
Additionally, Dr. Tena mentioned the
Taskforce on Printing, the Green Committee
and other groups that have been involved in
cost savings initiatives and that we should
look to them for some recommendations.
D.
Campus signage was brought-up and
suggestions were made to have more
prominent signage in smoking areas to ensure
the proper disposal of cigarette butts.
Additionally, it was agreed we needed more
building/campus maps/signs so that students
can more easily find classrooms.

OLD BUSINESS:
A.
The chair-elect for this academic year, Dr.
Jose Pacheco, will also serve as Financial
Officer for the NWC IE Team.
B.
COST SAVINGS: This issue was discussed
at the last District IE meeting and there were
many questions as to what is expected of the
team at this point. There was low turnout at
the last district meeting, but some teams did
submit cost-savings suggestions while other
did not. Dr. Tena wanted clarification on
whether the last district cost-savings exercise
was just a brainstorm or was it a formal
request for the IE teams to take action. The
group interpretation was that this was a
formal request that Dr. Stroud wanted to
receive ASAP. The committee proposed
numerous ideas as follows:
IV.
1.
Sending out an e-mail to solicit cost
savings ideas campus-wide
2.
Creating a suggestion box for cost
savings ideas
3.
Cutting back on copies (no duplication
of e-mails; placing bulletin board
announcements; cutting down on
campus newspaper circulation (see Joe
Old on this issue); cutting down on
printing costs)
4.
Energy savings from turning off
electronic equipment; light sensors for
classrooms and hallways or have Fog
lights on for after- hours lighting.
5.
Having virtual office hours (however,
Dr. Tena warned that some of these
workload issues are tied to contract
obligations).
NEW BUSINESS:
A.
Dr. Tena gave us a Cabinet update and
informed us that the bushes at NWC will be
cut down in January to prevent a fire hazard
and for campus protection. The bushes will
be trimmed but not dug-up and this will not
affect the bunnies. It was recommended that
from now on we should only have native
plants at the campuses to save money.
B.
It was mentioned that we have two new
members on the IE Team: Mary Ervin and
Jose Grajeda.
C.
Dr. Pacheco informed us of how he had to
remove a snake from the campus and relocate
it to the arroyo out back. It brought up the
issue of how we should handle such
occurrences. We don’t have the proper
equipment to handle snakes and calling
animal control would take too long. A
suggestion was made that we should acquire
needed equipment and have one or more
campus employees receive training from
professionals on how to handle capturing and
moving a snake.

F.
Dub Satterfield shared the concern from a
handicapped student in regards to the
availability of handicap parking spaces in the
parking lot. He requested that the Northwest
Police Department, if at all possible, make
sure the Handicap parking lot spaces are not
being used by individuals who are not
handicapped. Request was made to have the
Physical Plant review the number of
Handicap parking lot spaces at the Northwest
campus since the campus has an additional
5,000 square ft. building (Library addition).
G.
Monica Wong announced that the addition to
the library was almost completed and soon
would be fully functional. Monica also
announced that Dr. Jose Pacheco-Lucero
would be directly involved in the design and
development of the Humming Bird and
Butterfly Garden in the new section of the
library.
H.
The process to select the Employee of the
Month was discussed and an employee of the

According to Dr. Lydia Tena the removal of
dead vegetation around the main building
was completed the first week of January 2012
and the removal of stumps will take place
within the next two months.
B.
The Chief of Police at EPCC will be
contacted regarding the importance of
acquiring the proper equipment and training
for capturing and removing snakes from the
Northwest campus grounds.
C.
Hilda S. Taylor shared with the IE Team the
events that transpired during the meeting on
January 2012. The overall feeling during the
meeting was one of discontent and frustration
as expressed by the members during the
meeting. According to Blythe Gunn,
Kimberly Golucke and other committee
members, the procedure that appears in the
EPCC website was completely different to
the procedure that they had worked on during
the summer 2011 and submitted to the
cabinet for consideration. The committee
made a motion to request the presence of Dr.
Ernst Roberts and Mr. Saul Candelas at the
meeting in February 2012.

Mary and Veronica have been appointed as

C.
Dr. Taylor discussed funding for the I.E.
committees and identified V.P. Josette
Shaughnessy as overseeing those allocations.
Monica mentioned that when I.E. committee
first started out, monies were available only
for the first two years. Today, most monies
go to salaries and there are very few
resources left after expenses. Also, safety is
a priority over any other kinds of requests.
Members asked the question, if we have no
budget, then how are we going to build a new
campus.
D.
Dr. Taylor mentioned that the trimmed
bushes at NWC are now growing back. She
learned at district that Facilities will not
allow students and staff to get involved in
landscaping. Our study on landscaping
received letters from experts that said we
don’t have the proper landscaping. One
positive was that we don’t have to worry
about rabbits inhabiting the NWC.
E.
We also discussed that there are no security
measures to handle snakes. If we are to
address this situation, we need people to be
trained in handling them. Monica suggested
that the police need to be trained in this area.
Dr. Pacheco was suggested to look into this
matter.
F.
Dr. Taylor will find out if we can use the
unused funds set aside for EOM for another
purpose.

IV.
Dr. Taylor informed us that the college is
becoming more concerned about what is
being posted on college websites, including
Borderlands, so there may be some
restrictions in the works to control this.
The committee was presented with two EOM
nomination forms and a vote was cast to
adopt the “lined” version of the form. An
additional “rubric” form will be used as well
to evaluate and justify a nominee’s
accomplishments so that it can lend
credibility to the process and avert the
perception that it is a popularity contest. The
team will select a subcommittee in the Fall to
implement the changes to the program.
C.
The most recent analysis of our parking
situation at NWC suggests we are in
compliance.
D.
Mary Ervin brought up issues with the
distance learning courses and it appears we
need to improve the links we have for
students to support surveys, evaluations and
other qualitative efforts required by the
college. Michelle encountered these issues in
her evaluation, when she was requested to
have these in place.
NEW BUSINESS:
A.
Since only a few members were in attendance
we discussed what exactly constituted a
quorum for the IE Team. Some members
were in agreement that a quorum can be set
by the Team itself, so a motion was made by
Mary Ervin and seconded by Dub Satterfield
to set the quorum at 50% or more of the

The NW IE Committee had some
questions and/or concerns and Dr.
Stroud graciously addressed our
questions. Dr. Stroud advised us that
we can no longer give gift cards to the
Employee of the Month recipients as
was done previously. We can purchase
gifts, i.e., plaques or mugs in
recognition of their hard work.

Some IE members had questions
regarding members who do not
participate regularly and wanted it
explained how they can go about
replacing current members for lack of
participation. Dr. Stroud referred us to

be required on how to handle these incidents.
Chair Gutierrez agreed to take this up with the
district committee.
2.
Monica Wong reported that the Visitors
parking privileges are being abused and that is
impacting visitors to the NW Library. She
asked if this was a District-wide problem and
the consensus seemed to be that it was. Officer
Mendoza agreed to keep a closer eye on the
situation and ideas to place signage with time
limits were suggested.
3.
Monica also mentioned that certain lights were
out in the parking lot and this might
compromise security or cause an accident down
the road. Office Mendoza will inventory lights
and Chair Gutierrez agreed to forward these
issues to Rick Lobato at district IE.
4.
Dr. Tena gave the go-ahead to buy cakes and
trophies for EOM’s for this academic year. We
agreed on the “Rising Star” trophy made by
Champion Awards.
5.
Issues were forwarded by Dub Satterfield on
the general uncleanliness of the main entryway,
bathrooms and of the poor performance of the
new paper dispensers. Gerry Perez mentioned
that it had been a long time since a steam
cleaning had been done on campus. All of these
issues will be forwarded to district.
6.
Chair Gutierrez requested assistance from other
members of the IE committee on certain tasks
and that an e-mail will detail what areas we
need help with.
7.
Monica Wong is still looking to get some
windows fixed and carpet replaced in the
library. Some of these jobs would likely
require budget approval from administration.
We agreed to look at the beautification reports
to see if they were already on the list and if they
can be addressed during Mr. Lobato’s future
walk through of our campus.
8.
For EOM accessories, Gerry suggested that
maybe we can get one banner for display at the
celebrations and one to give away. Campus
Life has informed us that they will charge us
for balloons and other accessories from now on.
Gerry will meet with Campus Life and discuss
where and how they can help us with the EOM

District IE:
1.
Dr. Stroud provided a background on how there
were no other committees that handled facilities
issues, so the charge was given to the IE.
2.
Dr. Stroud mentioned that active membership
on divisional committees is to be defined and
implemented internally by committee
consensus.
3.
Budget for IE activities is $975 for the
academic year
4.
Dr. Stroud mentioned that the district has a
contract for Pepsi products, so when we
sponsor an event using EPCC funds, we should
be using Pepsi products.
Gerry asked if this applied to water for the

Issues, Requests, and discussion
1.
Dub Satterfield brought forth reports that
people may be tampering with other
employee’s computers during off hours. This is
a serious concern which could place
employees’ at great risk so Officer Mendoza
was asked if this was considered a criminal
matter and reported as such. The officer
explained that these kinds of incidents are
handled by administrative reports rather than
criminal events, so a record is maintained in
case some issue arises with the primary user of
a computer. Nevertheless, discussion
continued regarding how serious this kind of
activity is and inquiries were made as to
whether district is taking this issue seriously
enough or as to whether a new procedure may

she would help to provide needed assistance to
develop the Biology and Chemistry holdings in
library.
13.

II.
Dr. Gutierrez provided a summary of the
District IE proceedings. Topics included a
status on the Healthy Foods Initiative and how
the District committee decided that instead of
making specific contractual conditions be met
by vendors on providing healthy foods, we
would instead sponsor a generic campaign to
promote and make healthy choices. It was
thought that this could be done with the support
of the health sciences in the District. Gilbert
Gonzalez, Student Gov’t representative,
mentioned a recently completed survey that
polled students regarding their assessment of
food services at EPCC, their preferences, and
what ideas they might have for improving those
services. The survey will be used to offer more
options and better choices to the students.

Issues, Requests, and discussion
1.
Dr. Gutierrez also mentioned that the District
IE was undergoing a fundamental change from
a reactive, task-oriented charge to one that
places more emphasis on integrating the
committee into the strategic planning process in
the District. Some veteran members on NWC
committee commented that when the IE
committees’ were first formed, there was more
consensus building amongst the groups and
decisions and priorities were better established
after a process of wide participation occurred.
Most members felt that the committee’s
effectiveness and authority had diminished
greatly and it was much harder to get things
accomplished. Chair Gutierrez offered to take
concerns to District level.
2.
Members reported various and sundry issues of
maintenance or cleanliness that still need to be
addressed. Chair Gutierrez proposed that we

FACILITIES ISSUES:
OLD BUSINESS:
A.
DISTRICT IE and Pending Issues:
1.
Dr. Gutierrez informed committee that
the District IE is undergoing serious
change at the District level that is not
business as usual. Instead of handling
routine items and serving as a repository
for tasks and projects occurring at the
various campuses, a new charge is being
considered to incorporate and integrate
the District committee into the area of
supporting strategic planning for the
College. While the committee has been
working and assessing these new
functions, some of routine items/tasks
have been lost in the shuffle. Chair
Gutierrez asked that everyone be patient
while the District committee considers
the changes and assesses the overall
impact.
II.
2.
B.
Dr. Gutierrez updated the committee on
Dub Satterfield’s concerns regarding
computer tampering. The District
suggested we consider adding more
secure areas on the campus protected by
card keys and to have a presentation by
Richard Buller, to help employees use
good practices to protect their computer
accounts. No other action was suggested
by the committee on this matter.
The “Rising Star” trophies have been
ordered and engravings are pending.
They should be ready in a week or two.
2.
The committee discussed getting the
EOM display back up on the main
hallway and some thoughts on how to
give it more visibility. Peggy suggested
that Robert Aguilar collaborate with
Jesse Ramirez on creative ideas on how
to set-up and improve upon previous
displays.
1.
Lighting in “Section C” of parking lot
still have not been resolved.
2.
Manfred Silva mentioned a broken
piston on doors in Bldg. C and an
imbalance of air pressure that could
cause an injury.
3.
Peggy Gustafson mentioned clogged
traps around campus causing foul odors
in several bathroom areas.
4.
Gerry Perez wrote-in two facilities issues
for resolution: On cold winter days, the
offices near main entrance are very cold;
also, the crosswalk in front of main
building is uneven and could pose a
danger.
5.
Daniel Gutierrez informed the group that
Rick Lobato’s walkthroughs will begin
in April, but we don’t know what month
will apply to NWC.
NEW BUSINESS:
A.
Monica Wong gave us an update on library
extension. After bids and required approvals,
the actual construction may not be complete
until Spring, 2012. With budget cuts, Monica
was concerned about the quality of furniture for
new areas and as to how they would be funded.
Gilbert Gonzalez mentioned that tuition was
scheduled to go up in Summer.
B.
It was mentioned that a petition for education
was going around campus to ask the Texas
legislature not to cut education funding. Ideas
to support this effort were to set-up a table and
ask for volunteers to get signatures. Peggy
Gustafson offered to ask for volunteers and
request a table for this effort. Monica Wong
was concerned that cuts in library databases
will end up hurting students.

OLD BUSINESS:
A.
Because the District committee has had its
hands full revising the IE charge, normal
maintenance issues have been become
backlogged, so we discussed ways to try to
handle the most pressing issues at our campus
and decided on the bottom-up approach. We
will work closely with the technician at
Northwest and discuss our facilities items with
him directly. Dr. Tena’s office will work
closely with Dr. Gutierrez and the committee to
submit whatever documents or work orders are
required to keep things moving smoothly.
DISTRICT IE and Pending Issues:
1.
Chair Gutierrez handed out a draft of the
new charge and language anticipated for
the District IE Committee in an effort to
elicit feedback from the NW team
members. Many concerns were
expressed by members in that people
were not clear on what this committee
would do, how it would operate, and
how the membership would be
established. Many questions were asked
surrounding the committee such as: Will
there be comp time? Was there a list of
the areas the committee would evaluate?
How will this committee interact with
the teams at the division level? Who
will take care of the current duties such
as facilities issues? After much
discussion and a realization that we do
not have all of the answers yet for the
new direction, a motion was made to
create a new committee and instead
name it for the new functions it would be
doing (something like program review or
a committee on area effectiveness plans
for non-instructional areas). Most
members felt like it was turning into two
separate committees.

Dr. Tena provided an explanation of
“strategic planning” as it is currently
done where areas get reviewed and
measureable goals and objectives are set
so that reviews can assess whether
targets or milestones were “completed”
or whether actions needed to be taken for
“improvements.” Some members were
unsure of how non-instructional areas
would be divided up for evaluative
reviews.

Meeting Summary
EOM: We selected Julieta Cristina Lopez as Northwest
Campus EOM for April, 2011.
ISSUES: This month’s meeting was only informational. Chair
Gutierrez updated those present on the continuing revisions to
the charge of the District IE committee. Ideas were presented
on what the advantages or disadvantages would be of going to
a department revolving system for selecting EOM’s to ensure
that the program achieved broad representation. Because only
a few committee members were present, no action was taken,
and discussion on it tabled until the next divisional meeting.
Chair Gutierrez reported that Jesse Ramirez has done an
excellent job in setting-up the Employee of the Month display
in the main hallway of the main building. He encouraged all
present to take some time to view it.
FACILITIES: We discussed our new bottom-up approach to
reporting and resolving facilities issues across the campus. A
list was submitted to Manny, our Northwest Technician, and he
recommended that we submit work orders for those requests.
Chair Gutierrez will follow-up with that action.
Respectfully submitted,

Dr. Gutierrez reminded everyone of the District IE
meeting set for Sept. 27, 2011.
District IE:
Daniel Gutierrez reported that the organization, charge
and membership of the IE Committee is still in limbo.
The latest revision held the committee would have two
functions. The first would be the traditional role of
identifying things that could improve the campus, and
the second role would involve evaluating area
effectiveness plans in non-instructional areas. The
membership structure and appointments on the new IE
committee is not yet resolved.
II.
Dr. Tena mentioned that a recognition dinner would
be held at NWC on Sept. 22 for those students who
successfully accomplished accelerated learning at the
Early College High School. 19 students who
graduated this summer will be feted at the event.
Danny Martinez was selected as September EOM.
Dub Satterfield motioned to adjourn and Gerry Perez
seconded.

The meeting was adjourned at 4:10 p.m.
Unofficially, officers for the Northwest IE Team for
the 2011-12 Academic year will be:
Dr. Hilda Taylor-Chair
Dr. Jose Pacheco, Vice Chair
Jesse Ramirez-Secretary
Dr. Tena’s Report: Dr. Tena reported that a student
petition was circulating at the college regarding a
perception that the NWC was going to remove shrubs
and plants damaged by the freeze without regard for
the wildlife that co-inhabits the campus. Students
may have thought that the digging equipment being
stored out by the loading bay was going to be used to
indiscriminately dig out the burrows and shelters of
rabbits often seen scampering around campus. To be
sure no actions were in work, Dr. Tena said she had
checked with Rick Labato of Facilities and she found
out there were no plans to dig or move anything at this
time looking three months forward.
Dr. Tena wanted to quell these rumors and asked for
suggestions on how we might best handle the
situation. Members suggested that through an e-mail
or in the newspaper, we publicize the fact that there
are no plans to proceed with any actions that might
harm the wildlife. Suggestions were also made to
consult with the Chihuahuan Desert Society on how
we might handle the relocation of wildlife when the
time comes to implement upgrades to the campus.
One factor to consider would be the rabbits’ cycle of
reproduction. Another suggestion was made about
involving students in this project so that they could be
a part of the solution while at the same time keeping

are federally funded? Can students nominate an
Employee of the Month? Some members felt since
students can’t be nominated why should they be
allowed to vote? Some members also felt it should
be open to anyone who works for the college, i.e.,
the food handler at the NW campus, who is selfemployed, has been the Employee of the Month.
Also, it should be noted that since the voters are
anonymous, how can we ever keep track of who’s
voting? How many times can one be elected as
Employee of the Month? Is there a correct process
and/or rule for this? Dr. Quezada will address these
issues with the District IE.

A. DISTRICT IE REPORT
1.
The District IE team did not meet this month.
2.
Ms. Wong expressed concerns about the
redundancy of having a campus IE website
and/or link concerning NW IE activities
and/or events. Ms. Wong strongly feels it is
not necessary to post NW IE activities and/or
events. Ms. Wong feels the NW campus
website and/or link already has enough
information on the web and any other
information might be redundant and
confusing to the students. Ms. Thomas
informed Ms. Wong that Dr. Stroud wants
the minutes of the meetings posted on a
separate NW IE website and/or link as well
as other events that occur, i.e., Employee of
the Month. Dr. Quezada will look into the
issue involving the IE website at the district
level and will inform the NW IE team of his
findings, i.e., whether we should have a
separate NW IE website from the NW
campus and what information shall be
contained on it. It was also discussed and
agreed by Ms. Ortega that the Dean’s Office
would maintain our website and/or link
through the IE chair.

Perez moved to pass the motion. Mr. Rassaei
seconded the motion. The motion passed
unanimously.
B. CANUTILLO HIGH SCHOOL
Ms. Wong expressed concerns about students from
Canutillo High School being in the library during
school hours. Ms. Wong does not have enough staff
to screen whether the students are from Canutillo. It
was suggested that an announcement be made over
the loud speaker reminding students not to be on our
campus or library during school hours. Ms. Ortega
will convey this message to Dr. Tena.
Diaper changing tables have been installed.
C. CANUTILLO HIGH SCHOOL
Some NW IE members felt the issue of adding a
