Professional Development

Developing a plan for your department, office or school.

While the College’s Office of Training & Development is responsible for the training and development program, many of the schools, department or offices also provide professional development opportunities to their employees.   These pages are intended to provide specific examples of how a variety of departments, offices or schools manage professional development opportunities.

If your department has discussed ways to formalize a no to low cost professional development plan for all employees, read through the examples linked below.  You may find an idea (or two) that will work for you!


If your department offers professional development and you would like to have the information published on this site, please contact Babs Bengtson ( or 757-221-1845).
