Professional Development Committee

Professional development activities are coordinated by the Professional Development Committee.

The mission of the Professional Development Committee is to develop, implement and assess professional development initiatives that enhance the competence of Student Affairs staff. Specific initiatives will be developed in cooperation with the UA Department of Human Resources to:

  • educate new professionals about Division practices, campus history and structure, and competencies needed by professionals
  • educate support staff professionals regarding advanced skills needed
  • inform staff of professional development opportunities through the University, professional associations and local institutions
  • provide a series of workshops to prepare staff to meet the needs of diverse student populations
  • collaborate with campus partners to supplement the Division's professional development initiatives
  • provide supervisors and individual professional staff with tools to establish measurable professional development goals based on a competency model at early career, mid-career and senior career increments
  • evaluate staff needs for professional development and plan accordingly
