Forms and Information for Faculty
The San Mateo County Community College District provides a fund equal to 1% of expenditures for regular faculty salaries to provide faculty professional development opportunities.
- Applications accepted on a continuous basis by the Faculty Professional Development Committee.
- Applications received in summer are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
- Submit at least 30 days prior to the activity.
