Staff Development and Engagement Committee

Our Mission

We strive to provide a learning culture on campus, where staff are encouraged and supported in their professional and career development.  We support the access of training staff to use existing conference and training facilities to extend the offering and delivery of programs consistently to all staff on all three campuses.  We are working to implement career planning to support and encourage staff to grow their skills and advance themselves thus infusing new prospective and skills into departments and the University as a whole. Events we have done in the past include our bi-annual one-day conference, a webinar about LinkedIn, and a bus tour of the downtown campus.
