Professional Development Funding Opportunities

Student Affairs Professional Development Grants

On behalf of the Vice President for Student Affairs, the Student Affairs Staff Development Committee is excited to announce a new professional development funding program for divisional employees. The goal of this program is to provide monetary support to Student Affairs staff who wish to pursue professional development, but are unable to do so due to budgetary restrictions within their departments.

The Funding Form is currently available on the Staff Development Committee's website (via the VPSA's website). All applications will be considered; however, preference will be given to those who have been unable to engage in any professional development opportunities within the past two years, have a significant financial need due to lack of departmentmal or external funding options, and can demonstrate how this opportunity will benefit their professional development, their department and/or the University in general.
