Faculty and Staff Development Program

The Faculty and Staff Development Program (FSDP) is a quarterly event which occurs during the academic quarterly breaks, and allows everyone in the LIFE Community to gather with their colleagues, hear updates and important announcements from the Executive Office, and offers a series of workshops to enhance professional and personal development.  Various awards and recognition of faculty and staff accomplishments are given during FSDP.

The program is administered by the Faculty and Staff Development Program Committee, consisting of staff and faculty representatives from various administrative and academic departments.  Faculty and staff are encouraged to contact this committee to suggest ideas and give feedback on programs, or to request to serve on the committee. Any campus department may contact the FSDP Committee chairperson to request time on the quarterly FSDP schedule for announcements.
