Professional Development Day 2020


Student Affair’s Professional Development Day is designed to support the professional development of staff at all levels. The Professional Development Day provides staff with an opportunity to engage, learn, and practice their skills in personal and professional settings. We hope that you will be able to connect with colleagues across campus and walk away with tangible resources to approach your work and achieve success.

We understand that professional development opportunities are a key component of one’s career to sharpen skills and advance in one’s field of work. Therefore, we strive to dedicate to providing a full day with motivational speakers, a variety of engaging workshops/sessions, and networking opportunities. 

With the introduction of remote work, the committee has put together a "choose your own adventure" format to be inclusive of all professional development needs.The guidebook below details the different sessions that attendees will be able to choose from throughout the day.
