rogram

students.


The
Biotechnology Program

has a variety of classes to offer the STEM students and the community a unique entry into the Biotechnology
industry. The
Biotechnology Program

is planning to increase enrollment by absorbing allied health studen
ts who are considering an alternate
career pathway, laid off workers who are considering a career change, and current Biotechnology worker who need to update the
ir skills.


The
Biotechnology Program

is also considering biofuel, green energy, and/or clini
cal laboratory technology pathways in the program.

Author(s) of this Unit Plan:
Patricia P. Wu


Date:
March 26, 2010



Audience: Budget, Deans, CEMC, IPBC

Purpose:

To recommend changes in FTEF allocations for subsequent academic year and guide Deans and CEMC in the allocation of FTEF to
units.

Instructions:

In the area below, please list your requested changes in course offerings (with reference to corresponding ch
ange in FTEF) and
provide your rationale for these changes. Be sure to analyze enrollment trends and other relevant data (
http://help/EMC/
)
. Please seek your
dean’s assistance as needed.




The FTEFs allotted for the
Biot
echnology Program

are no longer available from
the Biology subdivision.
It is crucial to separate the FTEFs for
Biotechnology from Biology because 1) Biology has to cancel classes to meet the low FTEF allocation for the subdivision and 2
) it is not
possibl
e to
offer more biotech classes
e.g. 2 Biot 30 or new classes
at Chabot College

under the current situation
.
In order to expand the
Biotechnology Program

and t
o better serve and meet the needs of the community
, the FTEF allocation for biotech must be separ
ated from the
Biology subdivision.

What educational programs or institutional purposes does this equipment support?


All the requested equipment will not only support th
e

Biotechnology Program

(Biot

20, 30 and new classes) of Science &

Math
division but also the entire biology subdivision. The requested equipment ensures that students will have the tools to perfor
m
proper laboratory procedures which will be applied in a re
search or manufacturing facility in the biotechnology industry. The
requested equipment will replace the
OBSOLETE

(over
TWENTY

years old) equipment in the biology department. The obsolete
equipment is
NO LONGER USED

in current/modern research or manufactur
ing facilities around the world. Only the new and
current equipment will attract students to take the biotech classes and increase enrollment.


Also, Ohlone College has a brand new biotechnology building in Newark, CA with fully equipped labs. In order to

increase
enrollment and establish the
Biotechnology Program
, Chabot College must update the equipment in order to
offer our students
the best educational experience.




Briefly describe how your request relates
specifically

to meeting the
Educational Master Plan

and the Strategic Plan Goals and
support the goals and outcomes detailed in your Unit Action Plan (Part II, Section 2)?


The Educational Master Plan states that the Colle
ge will
continue to improve the institution’s response to students through
灲pg牡浳mt桡t su灰潲t st畤ent accessⰠde癥汯p浥ntⰠeq畩u礬 an搠s畣uess
. One responsible way to support such growth is to
provide needed equipment for students in the
Biotechnology P
rogram
.


Also, Math & Science Division’s statement of philosophy states “
周e 摩sc楰汩湥s i渠t桥 摩v楳楯i st物癥 t漠p牯rote creat楶楴y a湤
a渠a灰牥c楡t楯渠f潲 t桥 睩摥 a灰汩捡ti潮s 潦⁲es灯湳nble sc楥湣n 楮 t桥 睯牬w t桥y 汩le in
.” Using
佂l佌䕔b

equipment

can not create or promote creativity and a sense of appreciation of the science world for our students. In fact, the obsolete

equipment will only hinder students’ growth in the science world.







Why is this equipment necessary?



Immediate health, safety,
or security issues



Increases enrollment


_____Prevents further deterioration of facilities




Replaces deteriorated equipment or facilities




Shows cost advantage due to rising prices


_____Provides visibility for the Bond Program


Briefly describe how the
above criteria are satisfied:


Health, safety, & security:


Obsolete equipment can cause fire hazards in the classroom since the deteriorating parts of the equipment may produce sparks
and
ignite flammable chemicals used in the labs. Such fire will not o
nly damage the classroom and/or the entire building but also cause
great harm to students and damage the college’s reputation as well. The cost to repair damaged classrooms and/or building is
much
greater than replacing the obsolete equipment. Harm to stud
ents and college’s reputation, however, can not be repaired and not
salvageable.


Increases enrollment:


Modern equipment will increase student success and retention. Students should be trained with the most current techniques so
they
will be successful i
n their academic and professional careers. Successful students are the best advertisement to increase student
enrollment.


Facilities deterioration prevention/replaces deteriorated equipment or facilities:


Deteriorating or non
-
functional equipment will f
orce the program to offer fewer activities to our students, therefore, decrease student
success and future enrollment.


Cost Advantage:

The cost of equipment keeps rising each year. Postponement of replacing obsolete/deteriorating equipment will only cost

the college
more in the future.


Bond Program visibility:


Biotechnology industry has been on the rise for the past 15 years, the demand for skilled workers has only increased not decr
eased.



Neighboring community colleges have been taking advantage of bio
technology trend and attracting students from all over the Bay
Area. Chabot College should be an active participant to provide what is needed in the community.


Easily executed:


No additional personnel or training is needed. Equipment can be installed an
d used immediately.



What is the consequence of not funding the equipment?


Without the equipment, students will not gain valuable modern experience which is needed in the 21
st

century. Chabot College will
not be able to compete with neighboring communit
y colleges which are able to provide the up to date service to the students.



What alternative approaches have been considered to meet programmatic demands for this equipment?


None. Biotechnology offers hands
-
on experience. Students can
only
gain such e
xperience with the requested equipment.



How many students will be impacted by the purchase of this equipment?
Over 2,500 students
(
Biotech and Biology

combined
)

4000 category budget:

Supplies for the biotechnology classes are very expensive. Solutions, reagents, chemicals, and biological specimen all have l
imited shelf lives. Most
of these

consumables are one
-
time use only; therefore, it must be replaced constantly. Breakage of laboratory glassware is not uncommon in the
laboratory; therefore, glassware also has to be replaced constantly. With the rising cost of materials, an increase in 40
00 category budget is
necessary.


5000 category budget:

Biotechnology is a fast
