Professional Development

A Program with a Purpose

The Professional Development program at Foothill is a top college priority.  We are facing so many challenges with student equity, technology, accreditation,  Generation Z students, returning veterans, and more, and we believe it is important to provide ongoing learning opportunities and resources to support Foothill faculty and staff to effectively support student learning.

The program includes funds for conference travel and participation, a robust calendar of workshops and events, and numerous online training opportunities - all designed to support the continuous development of knowledge and skills for the Foothill campus community. Our programs are open to all FHDA district employees.
