A half-day each semester is set aside in the academic calendar for professional develop.  The CAO, in consultation with Faculty Executive Committee, shall make arrangements for these half-day programs, which may involve presentations from internal or external speakers on a variety of pertinent topics in higher education.

Once each semester, there is usually an unscheduled faculty meeting day. For those occasions when an additional meeting is not needed for faculty business, FEC plans one-hour professional development sessions. Typically, internal or local speakers deliver these brief workshops or presentations, but they might also consist of webinars, live presentations via streaming video, recorded videos, etc.

Attendance at these events is expected of all faculty.
