Welcome to the VCCS Office of Professional Development!

Included in Academic and Workforce Programs are the Student Success Center and the Office of Professional Development. Our goal is to support the development of faculty, staff, and administrators to achieve the mission of Virginia’s Community Colleges.  With more than 6,500 full-time and nearly 14,000 part-time employees, across 23 colleges, the system office, and the shared services center, there is no shortage of needs in supporting these professionals (FT faculty, adjuncts, administrators, classified staff, wage …) to ensure we are all pulling together in support of our students from connection to completion.

You will find numerous opportunities for personal and collaborative learning, as well as online facilitated trainings. Our goal remains aligned with ensuring that all employees of the VCCS have the support they need to fulfill our mission, giving everyone the opportunity to learn and develop the right skills!
