Professional Development Resources

During the 2022-2023 academic year, the Office of Academic Affairs is embracing the professional development theme of Cultural Responsivity

A shared professional development theme offers us the opportunity to share resource recommendations with each other, engage in conversations about how to apply what we learn in our daily work activities and work together to continually improve inclusiveness for all members of our campus community. Interim Provost Dr. Abby Parrill-Baker asks that all members of Academic Affairs, both faculty and staff, choose one theme-appropriate professional development activity to engage with this fall. 

Ideas for participation include watching a webinar, reading an article/book or participating in a unit-level group workshop. Should you come across some great resources and want to share them with colleagues, please use the form below to provide that information.
