Professional Development Opportunities Handbook
About the 1999 NCEAFCS Professional Development Opportunities Handbook
The 1999 Professional Development Committee of NCEAFCS encourages members to take courses of interest and professional relevance to them, as well as to pursue advanced degrees in keeping with requirements of North Carolina Cooperative Extension and their own professional interests. To ease this process a bit, the 1998 Professional Development Committee compiled the original Professional Development Opportunities Handbook. Our committee has revised that work so that the 1999 edition contains not only additional information about professional development opportunities offered through North Carolina universities, but also information on a few out-of-state programs. Given the driving distances from out-lying counties to some of our state universities, we have included information on a few universities in adjacent states which may also offer realistic graduate school options for some of our members.
Although most of the information listed in this booklet is from the family and consumer sciences/services departments of the various schools, attempts were made to identify relevant programs in other departments/schools, as well. It is, however, not a comprehensive listing, and NCEAFCS members are advised to check the websites and contact persons/numbers for any programs they think might be helpful to their professional development. Also, you may want to check out the continuing education programs of each school (these programs go by various names, including Continual Learning, Lifelong Learning, etc.), especially if you are interested in taking individual courses without being officially accepted into a graduate program.
If you would like to visit the web sites for any of the universities in the UNC System, you can access them through a link from the following page: http://www.ga.unc.edu/UNC_Schools.In most cases within this Handbook, specific websites to the schools are listed. Where available, departmental websites have been included.
We hope that you will find this information helpful in your pursuit of continued professional excellence!1999 Professional Development Committee:

The NCCE Administrative Handbook also provides detailed information about the tuition waiver, which can be used by Extension faculty for no more than one course per semester at any campus of the University of North Carolina system. The tuition waiver form needs to be completed and signed by the agent, approved by the county director, then sent to the district director. From there it goes for appropriate campus approvals and is signed in the office of the Director of Academic Programs before it is returned to be presented to the cashier at the time of registration. When the cashier receives the waiver, you will then be charged a reduced fee (typically $7.00 per hour; however, you may also be charged a registration fee and/or parking fees, depending on the institution.) REMEMBER: the value of your waived tuition will be added to your income that is reportable for income tax purposes.
Free Tuition Privilege. Faculty members may enroll tuition-free for one course per semester (excluding summer sessions). The rules governing free tuition privileges are outlined on the "Application for Faculty/Staff Tuition Waiver" form. A nominal $7 fee per semester is required.
