COT Development Committee
The COT Development Committee provides workshops that will assist in many training and learning opportunities to enhance professional development. The workshops consist of two different types: Technical (i.e. Spreadsheets, Access, Powerpoint, SIS Training, Specialized Departmental Training) and Non-Technical (i.e. Conflict Management, Interpersonal Communication, Cultural Diversity). The committee also mentors new COT Staff members by being a source of information and another campus contact.
