The mission of the Professional Growth Committee (PGC) is to support the professional growth activities of Pierce College faculty.


The committee's purpose is to oversee the distribution process for monies provided for Conference Attendance and Tuition Reimbursement. The fund is intended to provide opportunities for our faculty to improve their knowledge, skills and, ultimately, improve teaching, student learning, and student success.
