People are at the core of the work we do at Modesto Junior College.  The California Community College systems recommends a "revitalized and re-envisioned professional development yield an invigorated, supportive, positive and more skilled workforce that is better prepared to meet the needs of students and the community it serves." 

We agree with the CCCCO Professional Development Committee that "professional development is an investment in the most valued resource in the systems, its employees."
