How is success measured?
At College of the Canyons, success is measured using the twelve district-wide strategic goals of Teaching and Learning, Student Services, Cultural Diversity, Human Resources, Institutional Advancement, Institutional Effectiveness, Financial Stability, Technological Advancement, Physical Resources, Innovation, Campus Climate and Leadership. The Professional Development program aligns all offerings and activities with these established goals to ensure a meaningful and comprehensive program that is focused on achieving defined outcomes through the training of our most valuable resource, our employees.
College of the Canyons is committed to developing our employees to their fullest potential through the numerous training opportunities offered throughout the entire year as part of the Professional Development program. The importance of the Professional Development program and the District’s commitment is clearly defined in the College’s strategic plan, and is given full support by the Board of Trustees and Chancellor Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook. All faculty and staff are encouraged to develop an annual personal professional development plan, and engage in training that will assist them in meeting their professional development goals.
