Professional Development Program 

The mission of the Professional Development Program, as carried out through the Professional Development Committee (PDC), is to promote an inclusive learning culture that supports the strategic goals of the College in which all college employees--faculty, Classified staff, Confidential staff and administrators--will have ongoing opportunities to develop and expand the skills and practices that influence student learning, and support students in achieving their educational goals.  In addition to providing ongoing professional development opportunities for all college staff,
the PDC approves all funding requests

The PDC works in coordination with the Faculty Excellence Committee (FEC), a subcommittee
of Academic Senate, who oversees the Faculty Excellence Program.  The FEC's mission is to
promote, improve, and sustain the professional growth of faculty for the benefit of students,
and in order to assist the College in meeting its goals. 
The FEC has developed the professional development calendar/configuration and the institutional criteria for faculty professional development credit; determines the content and schedule for professional development days/activities; assesses faculty professional development needs; and evaluates the overall professional development program.
