Welcome back to another school year! Our Staff Development Committee has been going through some changes this past year. After many years of being our fearless leader (and doing an awesome job!), Erika Hill has retired from the Committee. And we are delighted to welcome our newest team member - Dennis Sue from the Dept. of History. Dennis brings a lot of enthusiasm and energy to our evolving team - we are really looking forward to working with him.

Stay tuned to this page for news of upcoming events. Our goal is to offer a range of professional and personal development topics that will appeal to everyone. As always, we welcome suggestions from you, the Social Science staff members. Please feel free to email any of us with your ideas.

The Committee thanks the Office of the Dean of Social Science for their generous support of Staff Development.

The success of any organization depends upon its employees. In the Faculty of Social Science, we wish to create a working culture that supports and develops our staff members. Staff development involves personal development, professional workplace development, and advancement of information technology skills. Any staff member in the Faculty is eligible to participate.
