2018-19 Professional Development Funding

Faculty funding

The Faculty Development Committee is now accepting applications for funds to attend conferences and other professional development activities taking place between July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019.

Full AND part time faculty may apply for funds to attend a professional development activity, up to a maximum of $1000 per person.*

Prioritization of funding is based on how well the activity supports current DVC goals and objectives. Preference will be given to those who are presenting, and those who did not receive development funds in the last fiscal year.

*$1000 maximum per person, per fiscal year (July 1st 2018 – June 30th 2019) from Faculty Development funding. Additional funds may be available if you are attending an activity specifically to support Equity, Basic Skills, or 3SP goals and your application is written to that effect.

Classified funding

The Classified Professional Development Committee meets periodically throughout the year to review applications for funds for conferences, tuition reimbursement, and other activities.

Permanent Classified staff are eligible for up to $700 per semester (fall/spring) for conferences, tuition reimbursement and other professional development activities.

Additional funds may be available if you are attending an activity specifically to support college goals around Equity, Basic Skills, or 3SP and your application is written to that effect. More info on those goals can be found here:

General information:

  • Equity funding is for activities that support underserved populations, diversity, and equal access (i.e. disabled, minority or veteran students, women, foster youth, low income, etc.)- if your activity addresses any of these items, your application needs to explain how you will apply what you learn to college priorities in these areas
  • 3SP funding is for activities that support core services: orientation, assessment, counseling, advising and other education planning services
  • Basic Skills funding is for activities that support entry level math, ESL, and English and developmental education
  • Classified development funds are for most other activities that support the college’s current goals, your current position and/or your educational development
  • You must be a permanent Classified employee who has passed one year of probation in the district to qualify
  • Activities must be pre-approved, and priority will be given to those who did not receive funds already this fiscal year
  • If you are applying for tuition reimbursement, please request funds for a specific upcoming class (that has not yet started) you are taking and provide the web link/info for that particular class. We cannot approve applications that just say something like “tuition for Master’s classes.”
