Professional Development


Faculty are required to complete professional development hours by attending Scheduled Activities or completing Individual Activities. These are paid hours, and forms must be submitted on time to receive the pay.

Adjunct Faculty & Extra Pay Full Time Faculty
Hours Required usually 1 hour for each assigned instructional hour (1 lecture unit = 1hour, 1 lab unit = 3 hours). 20 hours per year plus extra pay
Time Frame

Fall: July 1 to the 12th week of class
Spring: week 13 of fall to week 12 of spring semester, or roll over extra hour from fall
Disclaimer: If a part-time faculty member chooses to engage in professional development activities earlier than flex week, and if her/his teaching load is subsequently reduced, she/he is not entitled to be compensated for the extra hours.

July 1 and week 12 of spring semester.

Scheduled Activities

  1. Choose activities during Professional Development Week from the Scheduled Activities.
  2. Attend workshops and sign the attendance sheets.
  3. Submit the Flex Week Attendance Form after Professional Development Week.

Alternative Activities

  1. Review guidelines for individual activities.
  2. Complete the activity and submit the Completed Activity Form with evidence of completion during the allowed time frame.

Faculty seeking pre-approval for any activity may do so by completing the Individual Activity Proposal at least a month before the final due date for pre-approval.  Once approved, then the faculty member must submit the Completed Individual Activity form to receive credit.

NOTE: Completed Activity Forms will be accepted without an approved proposal, but it's to your advantage to have your activities pre-approved.
