New Academic Year. New Opportunities. New Horizons to Explore.

Let us help you focus on YOU!

The Professional Development Fund application will open on Monday, August 16th.

The Staff Senate believes in you and we want to help you succeed in your career endeavors. For the third year in a row, the Staff Senate has partnered with the Office of Administration and Finance to provide supplementary funds for departments that do not have adequate funding to support their staff’s professional development goals. The Staff Senate is beyond thankful for the generous budget of $12,000 this academic year.

Eligible professional development activities are funded up to $750, per employee, and are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you plan to participate in professional development activities this year and your department doesn’t have sufficient funds, mark your calendar to complete your application as early as August 16th.
