Faculty and Staff Life 

  • Staff Professional Development Fund – The college is committed to providing a wide range of professional development opportunities to ensure that staff have the resources they need to be successful. One of the many great opportunities that is available is the Staff Professional Development Fund. Applications are now being accepted for Fiscal Year 2021. These funds are available for a variety of purposes. Perhaps there is a fee-based webinar, training, or virtual conference that you are interested in. Find out more information and access the application here.
  • Shared Leave Pool/Donations – The Staff Shared Leave Pool is a program for staff who have exhausted all leave due to illness or injury. All vacation leave in the program has been donated by staff. May and June are the primary donation months for campus. Donations do make a difference. Remember that subject to loss vacation expires (if unused) June 30. Regular staff are encouraged to review vacation balances, and consider donating to the Staff Shared Leave Pool.
