Program Changes for School Year 2018-2019

Wendy Carter, Vice President for Instruction

  • As a College governed by the State of Utah, Bridgerland Technical College annually requests legislative building block funds in support of program offerings. Secured funding for FY18-19 has enabled the College to expand programs in the four main initiative areas (Health, Manufacturing, IT, and Construction) identified with critical employment needs in the service region. Details for the new program offerings and one substantive change are detailed below for consideration by the Board and ultimate approval by the Council on Occupational Education (COE).

Item 5

Fiscal Year (FY) 2019-2020 Operating Budget and Equipment Request – Strategic Planning

Chad Campbell, President

For your information and review is a copy of the preliminary FY 2019-2020 Operating Budget (Building Blocks) and Equipment Request or Equipment Request (with detail). This draft list is a compilation of the budget needs and represents the current and immediate priorities of the College. The budget is based on input from the Strategic Planning process, departmental advisory committees, instructional departments, and administrative analysis. Some “trimming” of this list may occur by the Commissioner’s Office or the Board of Trustees, but it represents the best analysis of business and industry demand in relationship to the College’s ability to implement the request during the coming months. This request will be forwarded on to the Governor’s Office of Planning and Budget and to the Office of the Legislative Fiscal Analyst on its way to consideration during the next General Session of the Utah State Legislature. Discussions of the appropriate size or amount of the request are in progress with the Utah System of Technical Colleges’ (UTech) Interim President and Presidents’ Cabinet.

ACTION: Recommend approval of the FY 2019-2020 Operating Budget and Equipment Request.

Item 6

FY 2019-2020 Capital Improvement Request – Strategic Planning

John Davidson, Vice President for Business & Economic Development

Capital Improvement requests are designed to make major improvements or repairs to existing state buildings. Included for your information and review is a copy of Bridgerland’s Capital Improvement Requests for FY 2019-2020. The spreadsheet represents a summary listing of the respective projects. The projects listed have been identified by a combination of processes that include a Facility Condition Assessment conducted by the State of Utah’s Division of Facilities, Construction, and Management (DFCM) and the Strategic Planning process internal to the College. Additional details will be provided.

ACTION: Recommend approval of the FY 2019-2020 Capital Improvement Request.

Item 7

FY 2017-2018 Student Enrollment and Outcomes Report

Jim White, Vice President for Student Services

In accordance with UTech Policy 205.10 “College Data Submission and Certification,” the President, the Vice President for Student Services, and the Vice President for Instruction conducted a careful review of the FY 2017-2018 enrollment (headcount and membership hours), certificate, and placement data to certify the data is complete and accurate, and complies with the criteria outlined in UTech policies 200, 201, and 205. The policy further requires the president’s review and certification of the data to be presented to the College Board of Directors in an official board meeting as an information item not requiring approval.

Jim White, Vice President for Student Services, will be in attendance at the meeting to provide the Board with the review and certification of the preliminary year-end data submission. A report showing the FY 2017-2018 compared to FY 2016-2017 results using the new definitions approved by the UTech Board of Trustees is available here: FY 2017-2018 Year-End Report. Based on the great leadership of the Commissioner and information from legislators on the Higher Education Appropriations Committee, the definitions are still being improved. Accordingly, FY 2016-2017 enrollment data becomes the baseline and the FY 2017-2018 data is the first year in which any comparison is possible. Please note that the policy governing FY 2016-2017 data was approved on May 17, 2017, which means the transition from previous reporting definitions could only be implemented retroactively for that year using our best estimates within the limitations of the database. A copy of the College certified data is available for review as a link.

ACTION: Information item/pleasure of the Board.

Item 8

Capital Development – Health Sciences Building Campaign

Frank Stewart, Chief Development Officer

The Board of Trustees for UTech has recently voted to place the Bridgerland Technical College building project as the No. 1 priority for the 2019 Legislative Session. Since the announcement in June, the College has collectively organized a building campaign of support for this project. The Cache Valley Chamber of Commerce, Box Elder Chamber of Commerce, and Northern Utah Chamber Coalition are expressing full support. We are asking our friends and partners to join the fund raising campaign. There has been great success with the preliminary planning phase and the lead gift has been secured! We are asking the Board members’ support, advocacy, and suggestions in preparation for an October 2018 Legislative Building Board Meeting. In addition, we are working with the medical and dental communities for support in this effort.
