Professional Learning


LMC Professional Development & Learning

The mission of LMC’s Professional Development and Learning Program is to strengthen and support a dynamic learning environment that promotes and enhances the personal, professional and organizational development for all employees - with the ultimate goal of student success.

LMC was founded in 1976 on the principles of continuous development and professional growth of its employees and, to this day, professional learning is a respected and practiced value of our campus culture.

The Shared Governance Professional Development Advisory Committee (PDAC) and the Local Flex Planning Group (LPG) work closely with professional development staff to plan and coordinate a variety of trainings, conferences,  and activities that engage employees in their professional growth in areas such as Teaching and Learning, Cultural Humility and Equity, Technology, Health, Wellness and Safety, and Leadership and Management. Inclusion, Assessment and Community Building are integrated into all aspects of Professional Development.  

As you explore these webpages you will find information about our new state-of-the-art Professional Learning Center, how to participate in LMC’s wide variety of innovative learning opportunities and important professional learning documents, forms and other useful resources for your personal and professional growth.

Your input and participation in any activities in the above areas are encouraged.    If you are interested in learning more or would like to join PDAC or LPG, please feel free to Contact Us!
