The Classified Senate has professional development committees which both coordinate programs offered on campus "(internal") and approve requests for employees to obtain training off campus ("external", formerly known as the travel committee). More detailed information can be found on the Senate's website.
The Professional Development Program (PDP) or Flex offers employees a comprehensive and systematic program of services and activities designed to foster staff, student, and instructional improvement by leveraging the reflective vision of participants. The Flex program is managed by the faculty PDP committee. Detailed information can be found on their website.
