2023 Academic Programs Staff Development Workshop

The Academic Programs Staff Development Workshops are designed to encourage networking among peers in performing similar activities across the country and provide professional development through training that stirs creativity by hearing from how other institutions deal with the same issues.

Academic programs staff provide support services and programming to students and faculty in their respective colleges. Such activities include: student recruitment, career services, study abroad coordination, advising support, undergraduate research, scholarship administration, and diversity, equity and inclusion training. In many cases, individual staff may be expected to shoulder several of these responsibilities within their respective college. This workshop was designed to strengthen expertise through peer knowledge sharing.
