Note: Staff members can apply for staff development funds during the Provisional Period (first six months of employment in the College of Business).
The Staff Development Committee recommends COB staff participate in local and virtual/online classes, workshops, training, and seminars, or other offerings provided by COB Executive Education.
Development funds should be used for opportunities to learn and grow your skill sets. Classes/workshops that address physical and emotional stress are encouraged. Your well-being is important to the College of Business.
