Professional Development Plan

Cañada College is dedicated to the professional development of all faculty, staff and administrators who are part of its campus community.  In partnership with the San Mateo County Community College District Office, the College recognizes and supports maintaining an environment in which all employees can refine and learn new skills as well as continuously improve how we serve students.

The College's Professional Development Plan describes the various resources and strategies the College and District implement to meet the professional development needs of all employees.  The Plan supports the College's commitment to State of California Senate Bill AB 2558 as well as the importance of ACCJC Accreditation Standard III.A.14, "the institution plans for and provides all personnel with appropriate opportunities for continued professional development, consistent with the institutional mission and based on evolving pedagogy, technology, and learning needs."

In Fall 2022, the College's Professional Development Planning Committee launched an effort to update the College's Professional Learning Plan.  Information describing this planning process as well as drafts of the new Plan can be found here.  Once complete, the new Plan will be posted on this website.
