Professional Development in Virginia's Community Colleges

Welcome to the central source for information about the Virginia Community College System Office of Professional Development. Our opportunities are available to the faculty, administration, and staff of the VCCS and are second to none.

This vibrant state-wide program was started in 1992-1993 to promote faculty development in the following areas:

  • Discipline development - builds knowledge and skills within the academic discipline or professional specialty.
  • Instructional development - improves classroom teaching, learning, and assessment techniques.
  • Career development - provides tools for effective personal planning to improve the quality of work and life.
  • Organizational development - enhances administrative and leadership skills to fulfill the institutional mission of the community college.

Please take a moment to look through our offerings listed on the left and see what the system can do for you.
