Qualifying for Conference/Workshop Funds

Applicants must confirm that this request for PD funding has been discussed and approved by their division dean.

Please note: if funding is approved, the purchasing transactions/arrangements must be handled through our office in accordance with college policy. Requests for funding related to out-of-state travel must receive cabinet-level approval.

Proposal Submission Timeline

To allow time for the Office of Professional Development to review the application, and for the Purchasing Department to make arrangements for payment, we have set the following funding request deadlines:

-  For any request that involves air travel, employees seeking Professional Development funds should submit an application at least one month prior to the event.

- For any PD request that does not require air travel, the proposal must be submitted at least three weeks before the event.

Purchasing Arrangements

If funding is approved, the purchasing transactions/arrangements must be handled through our office in accordance with college policy. This means that all travel arrangements and hotel arrangements must be arranged by Wendy Khadjikian, our administrative assistant. Do not do your own booking, even if you have an active profile in the college's American Express system.We do not provide reimbursements for travel/conference arrangements that were handled on your own. Reimbursement forms for meals & gas accrued during conference travel should be forwarded to Wendy Khadjikian for review and Peter Shea's signature.

Reimbursement forms for meals, transfer costs & gas accrued during conference travel should be forwarded to Wendy Khadjikian for review and Peter Shea's signature.


Required Workshop/Conference Feedback

In order to share your conference experience and takeaways with MCC colleagues who might consider attending the same conference, all conference travel funding recipients must complete this brief conference evaluation form.  This information will be posted on the MCC PD Blog.

PLEASE NOTE: In situations in which more than three applicants submit proposals for the same conference requiring extensive travel and overnight accommodations, the equivalent of three applicants expenses will be funded. This amount can then be used by the entire group of applicants, as a pool of funds to use amongst themselves.

Please contact Wendy Khadjikian at Ext. 3661 for questions or information.
