Faculty Mentoring

The purpose of faculty mentoring is to foster cooperation leading to excellence of all newly hired full-time faculty members at Johnson County Community College.

Through collaboration, mentors provide instructional, collegial, professional, and even social support.

The mentoring process provides benefits to the newly hired faculty members by giving them insight into the JCCC culture. It also provides benefits to the mentor by, perhaps, giving him/her a more recent connection to new practices.

This is a one-year program that begins immediately after confirmation of employment.

Faculty Portfolio

The goal of the portfolio process is to identify areas of engagement in which you wish to improve and to develop a plan that supports your goals over the five-year portfolio process. The portfolio process also requires you to gather evidence that demonstrates your efforts and to reflect on the effectiveness of your work. Additional information about objectives, checklist, and examples can be found at the faculty portfolio blog.

Kansas City Professional Development Council

The Kansas City Professional Development Council (KCPDC) is a regional consortium of educational institutions united in the belief that together we can offer faculty and staff development opportunities superior to what can be offered individually.

Current consortium members include post-secondary two-year and four-year institutions from both Missouri and Kansas.

This program is designed to provide adjunct faculty with tools and resources for becoming more effective in the classroom.

The certification requires that all participants complete six core classes and two elective classes. All classes meet for three-hour sessions at various campuses in the KC metro area. Twenty-four class hours are required for program completion.
