The College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences offers a Staff Development Fund for professional development of college staff members.

The maximum per person each year is $300, with the caveat that if a surplus in funds exists toward mid to late spring the maximum could increase to $600. Applications are available here.

Prior approval from each staff member’s supervisor is required for the funds to be paid by the department up front. The Staff Development Fund will then reimburse the department at the designated maximum payment.

The Review Committee members for Fiscal Year 2020–21 are Wanda McAlexander and Phoebe Peterson; questions may be directed to Wanda McAlexander at
