Merryl

Thanks, Shay. You too!

Reynaldo
25:08

lajohnson

Ruthy Watson
36:48
How about we be intentional about anti-racism training.
Sarah Corey-Rivas
38:31
Yes, Ruthy, we need to do that.
Ruthy Watson
39:11
Thanks Sarah! I know you get it :-)
Ruthy Watson
40:29
We also need to hire more administrators of color.
Merryl Kravitz
41:02
Please consider including real face-to-face converations in that training. Readings and videos only go so far.
Katie Gray
41:07
Absolutely, Dr. Watson. And we should make sure the person(s) doing the training get proper compensation for their time and work.
Ruthy Watson
41:49
True Katie and Merryl. Great points and so true.
Cathryn
43:00
ZOOM can substitute for face-to-face conversations. Please discuss this issue with the instructional designer. I can't remember her name but she's based in Rio Rancho.
Merryl Kravitz
43:50
Sorry, yes, Zoom = f2f. I just meant that it should be two-way.
Jesus
44:46
I hear Edward has been tasked with addressing the issue of diversity and inclusion for real now
Ruthy Watson
45:00
I think that some of the activities are best suited for face to face, some for ZOOM.
Cathryn
45:13
Synchronous courses can function like F2F...Asychronous teaching and learning needs more interactivity planned.
ACER PC
45:27
Hello please I am have been admitted to persue MS in Chemistry for the fall. I am from Ghana will the reopening be postponed.
Ann Wolf
45:38
The name of the instructional designer is Patricia Miera.
Jesus
46:09
Any one coming to NM needs to quarantine for 14 days. this also counts for athletes. Need to plan ahead of time
Ruthy Watson
46:35
Let's look at what we are talking about "Diversity" vs."Racism" Many people like to say diversity and leave out anti-racism work
Jesus
46:53
Acer, you need to ask that from the graduate coordinator of your program
Ruthy Watson
46:54
Diversity makes it sound nice and cozy. It's much more than that and we need to get serious about it.
Cathryn
47:00
True Dr. Watson. :) That's where alternative assessments can come into play for those teaching online, synchronous or asynchronous.
Ruthy Watson
47:29
I agree Cathryn. I've taught online, hybrid, and face to face. So I understand all of the modalities.
Cathryn
47:42
I also agree Dr. Watson that we need to do more and get serious about diversity, inclusion, and equity.
elvis mmuo
48:04
What about track athletes?
Jesus
48:07
Certainly anti-racism work is at the heart of diversity, no question about it
Gloria Gadsden
48:22
One person should not, and cannot, be in charge of addressing racism/diversity. I hope that is not the university’s plan.
Ruthy Watson
48:31
What about the Vatos?
Jesus
48:56
There is a whole committee that works on that. Edward would be the administration person working on that
Ruthy Watson
49:45
I agree absolutely Gloria! Thank you for that!
Sarah Corey-Rivas
49:54
Coordinated work on antiracism should happen at many levels and many modalities. We need some strategies to strengthen our commitment to this.
Gloria Gadsden
50:26
thanks for clarifying Jesus
Ruthy Watson
51:27
The DEIC should be involved in that as well. They should be consulting with Edward on those ideas and plans
Benito Pacheco
52:09
Right now we are down 16% total enrollment when compared to the same time last year.
Cathryn
52:39
Benito, is that reduction for both undergraduate and graduate?
Benito Pacheco
52:56
Yes
Merryl Kravitz
52:58
That's typical around the country. I believe that the number will improve as the economy remains depressed. Just need to hang in there...
Gloria Gadsden
53:16
I hope the local police will take advantage of the expertise at this university as they seek reform.
Cathryn
53:16
Nevermind...Imissed the key word, "total."
Ruthy Watson
53:36
Good idea Gloria. And the university police as well.
Sarah Corey-Rivas
53:46
Yes, Gloria
ACER PC
53:47

Mr. President I am a little late logging on but will school be starting at the campus on online in August?
Jesus
01:11:16
Model depend on their assumptions!!!
Jesus
01:11:34
The wrong set of assumptions will produce ANY results

Good point Jesus!
Jesus
01:12:25
Herd immunity is the Wall Street position. Let people die and save the economy
Ruthy Watson
01:13:06
All we need is one or two students with Covid to enter the residence halls and there is a potential outbreak.
Charles Swim
01:13:17
I have never seen that in the WSJ Jesus. And I read it every day,
Jesus
01:13:22
Everybody knew there would be spikes after the premature reopening. People are acting as if it was something unexpected. That was the ONLY thing that could have happened
Jesus
01:13:42
I did not say the journal. I meant the banksters
Ruthy Watson
01:14:04
When that happens who is responsible?
Charles Swim
01:14:05
Noted.
Cathryn
01:15:16
He should contact the Graduate Studies Office...I will help him.

Mr Benito please your email
Lauren Fath
01:16:51
Will there be trainings, Adam?
April Kent
01:16:59
good work purchasing and ITS
Roxanne Gonzales
01:17:07
same question - will we get training
Reynaldo
01:17:21
Congrats

Good Job Adam and to your team

Adam Bustos
01:18:38
Yes, we will be providing training. Also, there is a Chrome River link in MYPortal. On the Chrome River home page, there is a HELP section with How to Guides
lrcdebaca
01:19:45
Yes $500.00
Lauren Fath
01:20:07
Adam, it would be more helpful to have a session on how these processes, which have typically been done by paper travel requests and vouchers, will translate into Chrome River. Pointing folks to a “help” link is not specific to conversion of NMHU processes to Chrome River processes.
Cathryn
01:20:38
Adam, a print tutorial would be incredibly helpful.
jagonzales
01:20:57

A Global will be sent to Campus Community with details. We will have several training modalities (Zoom, paper, tutorials)
