Professional Development

The committee provides professional development opportunities for the entire division, such as webinars, networking opportunities, and hosting speakers for training and sharing of professional skills and knowledge, as well as recognition of outstanding accomplishments and efforts of Student Affairs staff. 

Examples of events and training include:

  • New Graduate Assistant Orientation
  • Assessment Mini-Conference
  • Awards & Recognition
  • Professional development sessions with keynote speakers including T.J. Jourian, Rich Keeling, Kevin Krueger, becky martinez, Ed Shihadeh, and Vincent Tinto.

Additionally, we encourage professional staff to travel to national, regional and state conferences for the student affairs profession and provide associated funding, where possible.
