Virginia Western supports many professional development opportunities for faculty and staff (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vz5WJEWbf5I&feature=youtu.be).
Professional development activities include on-campus training, VCCS opportunities for conferences and grants (http://www.vccs.edu/careers/office-of-professional-development/), non-VCCS travel and training, and educational aid for courses offered both on campus and at other institutions.
The Professional Development Committee has worked hard to improve the professional development funding process for 2014-15. Changes to the process include simplification of the application, inclusion of an option for attending more costly national conferences, and an automated submission process. Professional development funding is available to all full-time faculty and staff through this application process.
To apply for funding, please click on the 2014-15 Professional Development Application .
The deadline for applications is Sunday, March 16, 2014.
