A dedicated committee of faculty, administrators and classified staff brings the Professional Development Conference to life each year. These Roadrunners oversee the entire conference from conceptualization to implementation, including selecting the keynote speaker, presenters, theme and more. Committee members are excited about professional development and improving campus culture. The conference may be one day, but the work behind it lasts an entire year. Check out some fun facts about what went into making the 2018 PDC a reality.

I also specifically loved the inspirational aspect of the 2018 conference. I think defining ourselves by our purpose rather than title or anything else is so important. We are here to serve students."
