Increase opportunities for faculty and staff that encourage professional growth, foster experimentation, and advance curriculum innovation.
Our faculty and staff prosper when they can continue to strengthen their practice throughout their careers. Whether that be through facilitated learning, conference attendance, cross-functional teams, or other collaborative endeavors, opportunities for professional growth for both full and part-time employees are essential. Further, the college must be flexible and support these efforts by enabling innovation and promoting the development of new models for curriculum such as those that provide transformative learning, guided pathways, global experiences, distance learning, integrative and accelerated learning, and competency-based education.
We will achieve our vision for Professional Growth by:
- Fostering innovation in disciplinary and interdisciplinary curriculum models
and instructional strategies
- Supporting emerging leaders
- Promoting the college’s Culture of Inclusion Core Value
