The Professional Development Advisory Council (PDAC) is dedicated to promoting and advancing individual and collective scholarship, in support of the college’s mission. Established in 1980, activities include allocation of PDAC Professional Travel Funds, the Scholar on Campus program, Teaching Awards, orientation and mentoring for new full-time faculty, and workshops and other initiatives to promote faculty professional development.

Classroom Management Seminars, designed especially for faculty new to teaching, offers a wide variety of tips and techniques on highly effective practices that engage students in active learning.

We welcome your ideas, questions, and participation in activities that are useful to you. Email us or stop by Namm 227 or visit the e-Calendar of faculty development events on our website.

The PDAC serves as an advisory body to the Provost’s Office and works in partnership with the Faculty Commons to create the programing, initiatives and supportive environment in which all faculty can thrive and succeed at City Tech.
