Professional Development Committee

The Division of Student Affairs Professional Development Committee plans, implements and evaluates professional development activities for the Division. Divisional professional development activities are intended to complement but not duplicate Academic Affairs or Training and Development programs. Interest from both classified and AP staff is welcome.

Marsha Mays-Bernard (Chair), Janice Garrison, David Gillette, Tracy Hakala, Carson Lonett, Dawn Miller, Ashley Stovall

Student Affairs Diversity Council

The SA Diversity Council is a part of the University-wide diversity effort that emanates from the President's Office. The council is composed of representatives from all departments in the division and meets monthly. Sub-committee and special project work occurs throughout the year and the time commitment for that varies depending on the project. This working group provides the division with recommendations for creating an environment, developing trainings, programs and services focusing on increasing multicultural competency amongst staff, assessing staff needs, and recognizing work done within SA to further diversity initiatives.

Community with IDEAS Newsletter

Values: C = Community, I = Integrity, D = Diversity, E = Excellence, A = Academic Quality, S = Student Focus

The monthly newsletter highlights achievements, outreach, and new IDEAS for the Division of Student Affairs. It has also been used to recognize individuals in the division for various accomplishments and life events. Additionally, it supports the ongoing efforts related to the division’s values by highlighting how the values can/should impact workplace behavior and decisions. This has and continues to be a team effort. Many people are needed to make this publication happen.
