Professional development for UB's professional residential staff takes many forms and is an important part of the UB experience.
Campus Living developed a set of core proficiencies to assist the Professional Staff Training Committee as well as individual staff by identifying areas of ability and proficiency. The proficiencies have been developed based on the observable skills of our more successful residential life professional staff, and in consultation with competencies published by the National Housing Training Institute (NHTI) of the Association of College and University Housing Officers – International (ACUHO-I)
Over a two year period, the Professional Staff Training/Development committee will offer professional development sessions to provide staff with exposure to each of the 12 proficiencies.
Each semester in conjunction with their supervisors, professional staff will choose proficiencies (listed below) to help focus on developing their individual professional development plan for the semester/year.
