Faculty Professional Development

ATTENTION: FPD will be closed for the month of July and will reopen on August 1st.

We are grateful to have had the opportunity to support Faculty Professional Development through conference attendance. At this point in the 2017-18 academic year, we have met our allotted funding. We will unable to accept any additional conference requests at this time.

Once new funding is available for 2018-19 and we are able to accept new conference requests, we will post that information on this website.

For Perkins CTE travel requests, please reach out to the coordinator to see if funding is still available.


Flex Information
FPD Workshops & Form Information

Faculty Professional Development does not organize workshops during the Fall Flex Day, as each department is required to hold 6 hours of department planning with their faculty.  

If a department will not be including adjunct faculty in department planning, there are various activities adjuncts may complete for Flex credit. Please see the PT Flex Report Form for more information.


FPD Committees

Faculty Professional Development Office

The Faculty Professional Development Office has developed a strong peer oversight of all the professional development for faculty at Long Beach City College. We have seven subcommittees, plus the more independent Sabbatical Committee and a collaborative partnership with the Instructional Technologies Development Center. Each of the seven subcommittees offers a specific function to ensure the faculty professional development activities meet the current needs of faculty and are of a high quality.
