AUDIO-VISUAL EQUIPMENT REQUESTS

Request Audio-Visual and/or Multi-Media Services

1. If you are reserving a conference room or classroom and also asking for audio-visual services, please submit a Facilities Request on http://adastra.chaffey.edu (page will open in a new window above this one). You will need an account to log on. If you do not have an account, please contact Erlinda Martinez at Ext. 6610 on campus (or 652-6610 from off campus).

2. To request audio-visual services only, please contact the Information Technology Services (ITS) Help Desk. The easiest method is to use the on-line request form at http://www.chaffey.edu/isrepairform.shtml (page will open in a new window above this one). You may also submit an e-mail to isrepairs@chaffey.edu or call Extension 6789, Option 3 (or 652-6789, Option 3 from off campus).

For both types of requests, please keep in mind that ITS requires 48 hours notice for these set-ups. Information Technology Services will try to accommodate exceptions if needed on an emergency basis, based upon the availability of equipment and staff and only with the approval of the appropriate first-level manager.

When requesting a set-up that also requires reserving a room, please add an additional 30 minutes to the front end of the requested times: e.g. if your meeting is from 9:00 until 10:00, please book the room from 8:30 until 10:00. This will allow our technicians the time that they need to set-up and test the equipment. Information Technology Services realizes that there are few meeting rooms and that demand for these rooms is high (especially as the Spring semester draws to a close) and that this may not always be possible. However, if you can include this additional time in your room reservation, it will be helpful.

Computer projection units should be available through the School Office; if not, call ITS Help Desk at Ext. 6789, Option 3.

Videos are available in the Chaffey College Library.

CLASSROOM KEYS

Key Requests

Key issuance is the responsibility of the Campus Police & Public Safety Department. Key control is a major part of the College's security measures. Keeping this level of security requires some inconvenience and, in some cases, a cost.

Keys are issued only to those employees who need to access certain areas on a regular basis. Keys are not issued to part-time student employees or students.

Keys are not to be loaned or given to anyone without the employee's first obtaining permission from the College Police. Missing keys must be reported immediately to the College Police. Broken keys will be replaced. No duplication of keys is authorized.

A lost key or a key not retrieved from an employee who is separating from employment may require the replacement of all the locks associated with that particular kind of key. This cost will be assessed to the person or department responsible for the key.

An Access Card/Key Request Form (page will open in a new window above this one) must be completed before a key is issued. The contents of the form will be sent to the appropriate campus departments for processing and recordkeeping. Please allow reasonable time for processing of your request. Key requests require a minimum of 24 hours notice. Questions should be directed to the public safety department at extension 6632.

CHAFFEY COLLEGE COMMITTEES

Committees are a critical key to having a say in how the college functions and an understanding of how the organization works.

Shared governance is not a right that can be passively acquired. It must be actively and vigilantly pursued. All those who wish a voice in shared governance are encouraged to seek professional development relevant to enhancing their expertise as makers of policy. Faculty who would be a part of consensus decision-making for the organization must be willing to gather the necessary information, to develop the required communication skills, and to share in the responsibility for excellence in the college.

Critical in reaching consensus on organizational issues is the maintenance of a streamlined committee structure. Such a structure should include clear lines of accountability, appropriate representation from relevant constituencies, open access to information by all, sufficient time and support services to complete the necessary tasks, a spirit of partnership and specific procedures to effect the policies so that energy spent in committee is directed to specific ends. Another critical component of effective consensus building is the decentralization of authority to the most appropriate local level.

The above statements were excerpted from Chaffey’s Participation in Shared Governance AP 2510 (printable pdf document) adopted by the Governing Board.

Adjunct Faculty Serving on Committees
Please complete the Volunteer Services Agreement Form (printable pdf document) and submit to your Dean. This form has recently been implemented by Human Resources and is a way for the Governing Board to recognize your contributions to the College.

Commencement/Graduation

Commencement is the highlight of the academic year. As a professional responsibility, good citizenship, and as a show of support for students, all tenured and tenure-track faculty are encouraged to attend the ceremony. Commencement is held on Grigsby Field and the ceremonies begin at 6:00 pm. The faculty and staff procession is led by the Faculty of the Year and the Staff of the Year. The Faculty Marshal and Co-Marshal will have faculty form an arch that all graduates pass through. Faculty sit near the graduates on the field during commencement, and academic regalia is worn by all who participate in the ceremony.

Due to the importance of the inclusion of all faculty in commencement, limited seating is available to part-time faculty on a first-come-first-served basis.  In addition, Faculty Senate has purchased regalia that will be available on loan to adjunct faculty participating in the commencement ceremony that do not have their own cap and gown. For additional information, please contact the Faculty Senate Office at Extension 6966.

Associated Students of Chaffey College hosts a reception immediately after the ceremony.

EMAIL

NETWORK/ELECTRONIC MAIL REQUEST PROCEDURE

1. Human Resources or department supervisor will give a copy of the “District Network and Computer Use Procedure” to the employee.

2. Human Resources or department supervisor will ask the employee to read and sign the “Chaffey College Employee Network/E-Mail Account Form and Accountability Statement.” When the form is signed the requestor will receive a copy of the signed form. NOTE: In the event that a new contract employee refuses to sign the form, Human Resources personnel will write “refuse to sign” on the signature line and forward the form to Information Technology Services (ITS). No account will be activated.

3. Human Resources or the supervisor will forward the completed network/e-mail form to Information Technology Services. Information Technology Services will create an e-mail and/or a network account. A welcome email message will be sent to the new mailbox if created.

E-MAIL ACCOUNT

4. Information Technology Services will notify the new user by campus mail when the electronic mailbox is ready and will send a user’s manual titled Electronic Mail Using Microsoft Outlook, along with their assigned temporary password.

5. Employees receiving an e-mail account need to log on, receive and reply to the welcome e-mail from Information Technology Services, and change their password according to the directions provided in the user’s manual.

6. Once an e-mail account has been established, it must be accessed within 30 days or the account will be closed. If the account is closed, the employee will need to reapply for the e-mail account. This step is vital to the security of the Chaffey College network.

BENEFITS

• Students can contact you without impacting your personal e-mail.
• Chaffey will have a way to contact you regarding scheduling, employment opportunities, parking/construction updates, campus activities/events, etc…giving you a better sense of what is happening at the college.
• Rosters can only be sent to a Chaffey email account.
• Your personal user account can access functionality and network resources not available using generic accounts. This means that you will have access to:
   * Global distribution lists (e-mail addresses for all faculty & staff)
   * “Z” Drive public folders (This feature allows you to connect to a centralized location to gain immediate access to various department’s resources on campus.)

Users may also choose to have their Chaffey e-mail forwarded to their personal e-mail account. This allows users to access e-mail from whichever address preferred. However, there are some disadvantages to this feature; the auto-reply function will not work on forwarded e-mails so when responding users are giving access to personal e-mail accounts.
