The purpose of Professional Development (formerly known as Staff Development) is to design, promote, and support professional development activities that further the mission of the college. Under the guidance of our local committee, the program  plans, promotes, and hosts training workshops and other professional development activities for faculty, staff and managers. The skills and knowledge gained through these activities can improve individual and college effectiveness, thereby improving student learning experiences and educational goal fulfillment.

Although the majority of workshops are held during Fall and Spring Flex weeks, programs and workshops are also held thoughout the academic year (see Calendar for monthly listings).

Professional Development also maintains the College Resource Center (CRC) for the use of college employees. It provides computers (some with specialized software), a television/VCR, and comfortable reading chairs. A staff lounge with refrigerator and microwave is adjacent. 

The Professional Development Office is located on the Library mezzanine.
