The MCC Support Staff Professional Develop ment Co mmittee, in conjunction with the Institutional Research Office, is in the
process of identifying professional development activ ities for the upcoming academic year, and developing a long-range
professional development plan based on a comprehensive needs assessment. We are interested in your opinions about how
we can best help you achieve your professional development goals.

The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete. Please return your completed survey in the enclosed interoffice
envelope to Kathleen Moore in the Research Office, 6-102, by Fri day, June 7th. The results will be co mpiled by the
Research Office and shared with the Support Staff Professional Develop ment Co mmittee in aggregate form only. Your
individual responses will be seen only by Research Office staff and will not be availab le to anyone else at the College.
Thank you!
