As we welcome 2013, we know that many of you are working on professional goals as a part of the new evaluation process. Over the past few months, the administrative team has created a list of common themes regarding the professional development needs co-identified by staff and supervisors.
To assist classified and NUSS staff with meeting their professional goals, the following list of professional development opportunities has been compiled. Please review the list and collaboratively begin making plans with your supervisor to get registered or arrange to participate in the opportunity that best applies to your specific needs and goal(s) for the year.
