Guest: BCIT President, Dr. Tony Knowles
Tony Knowles answers FSA Executive Committee Enrolment Management Questions
Tony Knowles explained that Enrolment Management is not a new term; it is the process of looking at student enrolment/graduate demand/equipment needs and encompasses a plethora of issues.It is a business process to look at what you're doing and decide if it still makes sense.Tony gave examples relating to the trades side of the BCIT campus.
Tony Knowles said he did not have the experience to drive this himself.The principles of Enrolment Management are contained in Policy #5004, requiring management, EdCo & BOG approval, and the decisions were made in that spirit.
Consultation and Process
Tony Knowles wanted to make it clear to the forum attendees that he would violate process if he spoke to any questions on consultation and process, and he would be inviting another grievance.
Prior to answering any questions, Tony Knowles restated his position that he cannot have any discussions relating to consultation and process as this may relate to collective bargaining and the grievance procedure and would be bypassing management process.
