Welcome to the Learning Resource Network 

How We Started

The Learning Resource Network (LRN) began as a series of conversations between the Faculty Affairs and Teaching and Learning Committees in the Spring of 2017. The focus of this discussion was about the need to centralize and better promote the existing professional development opportunities being offered on the DACC campuses.

Corey Purcell (Former Chair, Faculty Affairs) and Douglas Layer (Former Chair, Teaching and Learning) launched the Learning Resource Network for the Doña Ana Community College. This effort could not have been possible without the assistance of other individuals including:

  • Dr. Monica Torres (President, DACC)
  • Jennifer Gabel (Training Specialist, Center for Learning & Prof Dev, NMSU)
  • Omar Carrillo (Web Developer, DACC)
  • Eddie Binder (Former VP, External Relations, DACC)
  • Adam Cavotta (Former Training Specialist, Exec VP & Provost, NMSU)



The Learning Resource Network provides
a one-stop shop for professional development at DACC.
