The college also supports staff members who wish to pay for a course or a workshop related to their jobs through the Staff Development Award Program. Three times a year, the college Staff Development Committee takes applications and decides – in a competitive process – who to fund.
Finally, the college maintains several professional networks, which are groups of people who work in similar jobs who meet regularly to hear college-level news, ask questions, and share information and best practices.
