Professional Development

The Professional Development Committee serves as an advocate for PSA members in all aspects of professional development.  The Committee supports PSA members' professional growth and career achievement by recommending policies and changes regarding professional development to University administration through the Professional Staff Council and Human Resources.  Subjects within the Committee's purview include employee orientation, performance appraisal, compensation, training, leadership development, and career paths.  The Committee may also act on any other topic related to PSA members' professional development.


On April 23rd at noon in Rocket Hall 1530 we will welcome Brent Tabler from Ohio Deferred Compensation to campus. Invest in Your Future – this curriculum features the benefits of planning for retirement via employer-sponsored supplemental retirement plans.  Evaluating how pension plans provide part of what is likely necessary for retirement and the concepts of tax-deferring, compounding and how to invest are included.  Security, Simplicity and Control are the key messages.
