What We Do
Support and celebrate excellence
The center sponsors a variety of professional development programs and activities using its own role models and expertise within the faculty and staff, as well as external consultants and experts. The center sponsors workshops and seminars throughout the year, conducts student, faculty and staff surveys, and hosts special recognition events.
The work of the center is intended to supplement, not supplant or duplicate, the many excellent professional development initiatives and programs that are sponsored and supported each year in all areas of the University. The center gives institution-wide recognition and validation to these activities and the offices that sponsor them. The center is guided by a rotating Board of Directors consisting of representatives from the faculty, staff and students.
