The college has three days in the college calendar that are devoted to faculty professional development. During these three days, classes are cancelled and the entire day is devoted to professional development for faculty. Activities on these days include department planning in the fall and workshops on a wide variety of topics in the spring. In addition, faculty may choose to do independent projects or group projects (within their department or campus-wide). For the independent and group projects, faculty must submit a Flex Proposal to the Flex Subcommittee for approval.
