ADV MFG: Automation TrainingNOVAThe robots are coming! As we hear more about the rising use of automation in manufacturing, we will look at what this means for our manufacturing programs. We will share what existing programs are doing, benchmark best practices & technologies, and gather input from industry.As the DSN for Adv Mfg, I will help coordinate. The idea is that the first year of this program will be focused on (quickly) creating a common definition for the different types of jobs in this field, sharing of current curriculum and plans, collating the industry needs already gathered, as well as professional development seminars on new technologies.C$21
Advanced Manufacturing and CIT STEMCoreNOVAThe STEM Core is a direct pathway to engineering and computer science degrees and employment for students entering at lower-level math skills. The STEM Core integrates math, applied technical skills, and internships in a supported cohort-based pathway. Evergreen Valley College, in collaboration with local workforce boards, employers and Growth Sector, will lead this initiative. EVC, in partnership with additional local colleges, is in the middle of delivering the STEM Core to its third cohort.C$R$K$20
Aligning CHW Curriculum StandardsNOVACalifornia is moving to establish policies for the Community Health Worker (CHW) profession, including training and certification standards. Representatives from community college CHW CTE Programs will convene to review emerging policies and curriculum standards.California is in the process of establishing new policies to guide the training, certification and scope of practice of Community Health Workers (CHWs). Join us in reviewing emerging policies for the CHW profession and working to identify common curriculum standards to share with policymakers. C$R$6
AV Tech Cert Collaborative ImplementNOVAIn Fall18-CCSF/Laney will offer capstone courses for their Collaborative AV Tech Cert., program developed with R1 SWP funds. Other colleges joined; CSM and DVC. As we implement, we are documenting our process and experiences to support others considering creation of regional programs of study. Laney and CCSF are in the curriculum phase. Certificates of Achievement have been created and approved by their respective curritulum committees. We hope to begin instruction Fall 2018. DVC has begun a separate certificate and instruction has already started.R$4
Aviation-Partnering for the FutureNOVABay Area Aviation Colleges are aligning with employers and positioning themselves for growth. Market demand is growing and colleges need to develop curriculum to increase number of qualified technicians and partner with industry on pathways activities and hiring of more faculty.Throughout 2018, members of the RJV have been meeting with The Bay Area Council and employers--the airports and airlines in the region. Aviation events have been attended at both SFO and San Jose Airports. Both COA and CCSF have held Aviation Days for students, and COA hosted 137 students from Oakland USD. The RJV is exploring facilitating marketing/outreach events for Gavilan and Solano Colleges. Test prep curriculum for the FAA certification is under consideration by COA and CCSF.C$8
Bay Region Equity AcademyNOVAThe Bay Region Equity Academy is a professional development opportunity for leaders to immerse themselves into baseline concepts, interrogating data and mapping implementation strategy for participants to advance equity-centered work at their respective institutions.
BACCC reached out to several BACCC College Reps to get their initial reactions to whether or not an equity academy at the reigonal level would be helpful. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive with the sense that this would be valuable. It was also recommended that the Equity Deans/Directors and the coinciding equity committees might very much appreciate this opportunity to support the work going on on local campusesR$14
BayICT Partnership - Shared Regional AdvisoryNOVALeverage Chamber of Commerce, Workforce Investment Boards, DSN, and Strong Workforce Program funding to sustain the BayICT Partnership as a shared business and industry advisory serving Community Colleges, Workforce, K-12, CBO and non-profit training partners.The March 29 launch of the BayICT Partnership was made possible through the collaborative work of our Workforce Boards, the Oakland Chamber, and our deeply engaged industry-led BayICT Steering Committee and their members. Under the direction of Kish Rajan, Chief Evangelist for CALinnovates, we are confident that the BayICT Partnership, here in Silicon Valley, will adapt Kish's work with the LA Region's "Center for Competitive Workforce" (https://ccworkforce.org/) and to truly work regionally.C$R$51
BioSCOPE - Year 3 RJVNOVAWork-based learning for Biotechnology program students: Students will follow technical lab and soft skills to generate “life sciences laboratory products” for education through hands-on activities in a structured environment that simulates a company’s manufacturing operation. To date 118 college students have completed the experience with 1822.25 hrs work practice. The project has supplied products to 2000 high school students for their lab practices. We want to continue on the path to implement industry-vetted skills badges to be used by the job seekers.C$R$28
Closing the Gender Gap in Computer SciNOVAThe goal of this RJV is to crack the gender gap in computer science (CS).  The number of females in CS has been on the decline.  While the numbers of females holding computing jobs was at 37% in 1984, in 2014, it dropped to 18% and if the current practices continue, it will not exceed 20% by 2025. Community Collleges (CC) are in good position to crack this gender gap using available SWP resources and working with high schools and universities to cultivate the interest of young female students.

We must cultivate the interest of young girls to pursue career in CS at early ages. This proposal is to build relationships with local K12 educational institutions to promote girls in grades 9-12 to develop technical skills and explore career opportunities in CS.

Success can only be achieved through working together at all levels to sustain and cultivate young girls interest. Working as a team at the high schools, community colleges, and universities, we can crack this gender barrier.
Cloud Computing ConsortiumNOVAThe purpose of this RJV is to develop a workforce development ecosystem consisting of community colleges, employers, WDBs, universities and high schools with the goal of developing standardized curriculum that supports pathways to in-demand cloud computing careers.We would love to have other deans and faculty help us with getting our consortium together. Alex Kramer and Teresa Ong are leading this effort and welcome anyone else to join us. Labor Market Information, previous presentations, and curriculum can all be found on http://bit.ly/bayareacloud.C$R$K$23

Healthcare Faculty Recruitment and Simulation Specialist Year 3 RJVNOVAThere is a shortage of Allied Health and Nursing faculty leaving some programs at risk for discontinuation while others remain understaffed. This grant proposes to establish a regional effort to recruit healthcare professionals into teaching and establishes "on the spot" simulation support staff to augment programs with simulation labs that are underutilized due to lack of trained staff. As a previous Allied Health Dean, I have seen faculty and college administration struggle with these issues. As DSN for health, I would like to enable discussions and problem solving to address issues that are common across the region.C$R$4
