About Our Program

The Investing In You professional development program is a reflection of the Division's commitment to ongoing professional development for our most valuable resource, our staff. An ongoing investment in the personal and professional development of our division is key to maintaining excellence in student services delivery.

Our program incorporates two annual conferences (one for professional staff and one for student employees), an annual awards and recognition ceremony, staff mentoring opportunities, and ongoing sessions and workshops throughout the year. Sessions include Student Affairs core competency trainings, departmental overviews to build divisional familiarity, divisional processes and program workshops, special population support seminars, and ad hoc sessions related to current topics in higher education.
