Committee Goal
• The goal of this project is to implement a system
that supports and encourages professional
development and provides opportunities to
improve the knowledge, skills, and abilities of all
employees. As an organization, we will foster a
culture in which all employees are continuously
learning and improving their professional and
technical skill and experience and develop a
means for measuring the impact of professional
development. This will add value to the
organization and to our stakeholder community.

Research Summary
• Research done at several institutions similar to MCC
– Site visitations
– Web searches
• Several models - every school does it differently – but
all have a funded, supported Center
• ASTD suggests 2% of payroll for P.D. – MCC close to
this
• Budgets and programs for P.D. should stay where they
are – but be coordinated
• Start small and let the center grow as needed
• P.D. center should assess institutional and individual
P.D. needs
