Professional Development Purpose

The purpose of professional development is to support the mission of the college by helping employees enhance their job skills, obtain job-related knowledge and information, increase productivity and efficiency, and/or prepare for higher-level positions. In the case of faculty members, it also provides an opportunity for classroom skill enhancement and increased knowledge in their specific academic discipline.

Professional Development Hour Requirement

There will be a minimum number of five required hours for full-time and reduced-hours full-time faculty and staff. Professional development hours will be based on what the supervisor and employee agree is a reasonable amount of time required to develop identified needs of the individual.
