Last year, NOCCCD's Professional Development Department established the District-wide Leadership Academy to support professional growth and positively affect student success and institutional transformation.
On September 5, 2018, Professional Development welcomed the second cohort of Leadership Academy participants at the Anaheim Campus Cypress Bistro for a welcome reception. Participants were introduced to the program, and later joined by their managers and colleagues to celebrate the start of their new journey.
The cohort attended its first session focused on community college leadership and personal strengths and challenges on September 14, 2018. The Academy will host six more sessions on a variety of leadership topics between now and May 2019. The topics are designed to build competencies around the themes of leading, envisioning, innovating, advocating, communicating, and networking. Other components of the program include: a trip to the CCLC Legislative Conference; diversity and inclusion field trip; interactive team project for solution-based learning; and reflective journaling to build contemplation skills.

On September 6, 2018, Professional Development launched NOCCCD's first District-wide Mentorship Program with a meet and greet event for mentors and mentees. Mentorship fosters an environment of support and collaboration that strengthens and empowers participants who are passionate about their professional growth. This relationship allows for the opportunity to ask questions, learn about different roles in the District, strengthen current work, and/or prepare for transition within the District. It also allows for a broader understanding of the connections across departments, the three institutions, and District Services. In addition to monthly one-on-one meetings, mentors and mentees will meet for three networking sessions during the year.
