4700 Professional Growth
The Board of Trustees believes that continued study is a prerequisite for continued professional growth of staff and, therefore, encourages the participation of professional staff members.
As resources permit, the President may plan and implement a program of staff development for professional staff members and support staff members and explore other training programs.
Such staff development programs should be designed to address the professional development needs of staff members who are working at a particular level, involved in a particular course or subject, or need to be prepared for a new assignment.
Participation in the program shall be voluntary unless considered part of the duties of any participating staff member according to provisions in a collective bargaining agreement or other contractual arrangements.
