New Horizons and
Off-Campus Conference budgets update
At the moment,
there are over 15 CVCC faculty and staff who will be attending New Horizons.
Mid-Year Mini Convocation at CVCC
11 have registered so far for this
event, including some Academic Counseling and Admissions staff members. The
Committee felt that this was definitely enough to proceed and we look forward
to hearing how it goes from Alison.
works: May 9 – Professional Development
Program on Faculty Engagement (with Patti Saffioti)
This is a
workshop that will relate to the upcoming initiative of faculty advising and
should be a half-day event. More details
works: PD Event for college faculty who
teach high school students on our campus
still TBD for this event.
Proposed change in Professional Development
plan for Educational Tuition Assistance after meeting with HR and others
to notification and approval eligibility process. Since Educational Tuition Assistance is
classified as an employee benefit when it is offered, HR needs to confirm that
staff requesting it are indeed eligible employees (full-time only) and will
work with Alison on the paperwork and order of approvals.
Do you have ideas
on how we can have employees bring back their new ideas to share from New
having two “lightning round” brown bag sessions to share about New Horizons,
one in the summer (May) and one during Convocation week in August. We may also ask those who presented a
workshop at New Horizons to consider presenting it on campus during Fall
Convocation if it is relevant to a broader audience.
Alison shared the
New Professional Development Logo—Do we need a tagline to go with it?
