Administrative history

The Professional Development Centre has its origins in the Department of Professional Foundations, established in 1965 as one of the original units of the Educational Foundations Centre (EFC) within the Faculty of Education. As the faculty re-organized in 1970, Professional Foundations left the EFC to become a centre in its own right and was renamed the Professional Development Centre. From the outset, the department / centre was responsible for developing and delivering the Professional Development Program (PDP), the teacher training and certification component of the Faculty of Education at SFU. The centre was abolished in the 1972 re-structuring of the faculty, with the Professional Programs division established as its successor.
