The Professional Learning Committee is a standing committee of the Citrus College Steering Committee. The purpose of the committee is to support the institution's employees with coordinated and sustained professional learning opportunities aligned with the college's mission and institutional goals. These opportunities are regularly evaluated for effectiveness in promoting equitable student success practices and in meeting institutional and employee needs. The committee maintains the guidelines and procedures for professional learning and professional development travel funding and makes determinations about employee conferences and travel support through these funds. The committee includes adjunct faculty, classified professionals, full-time faculty, managers, students, and supervisors/confidential professionals.
With the support of the DEIA+ office, the Professional Learning Committee strives to be the central hub for all training and development on campus. The Committee expands professional development for employees and promote participation in these opportunities, in an effort to deliver high-quality instructional courses, programs, and services. Additionally, the committee proactively assesses the needs of the college community to continually foster a culture of collegiality and professional growth. Additionally, the committee offers professional development opportunities that align with the mission and institutional goals and specifically support the goals of the Strategic Plan, Student Equity and Achievement Plan, Guided Pathways Plan, and the California Community Colleges Vision for Success, Vision 2030, and ACCJC Standard 3.2.
