A Staff Development Plan for a Community College.
Banks, Debra L.
A project was undertaken to assess the staff development needs of faculty and staff at Mission College (California), and to formulate a 1-year staff development plan tied to budget allocations for such activities. In spring 1986, a needs assessment survey for staff development was administered to 62 classified staff members, 87 faculty members, 4 administrators, and 6 supervisory personnel. The staff was also asked to nominate representatives for the college's staff development task force. Study findings, which were based on an overall response rate of 42%, were combined with a compilation of findings from institutional research on student demographics and personnel profiles to develop the 1-year plan. The parts of the plan that were implemented included: (1) an orientation for new faculty at the beginning of fall semester, 1986; (2) a convocation for all faculty and staff during the second week of the fall term; (3) the continuation of minimal conference funding for all faculty; and (4) the planning of inservice programs using outside resource people. Appendices include survey instrument results, a summary of student demographics, a personnel profile of Mission College staff, and the staff development goal statement and final 1-year plan. (LAL)
