Student Affairs and Academic Support

Professional Development

As student affairs professionals, we are lifelong learners. To support that learning, the Division of Student Affairs and Academic Support offers a professional development program designed to give you the latest information on higher education trends and issues and the tools you need for your individual growth and development. 

The Student Affairs and Academic Support Professional Development Program features events including monthly division meetings, article discussion breakfasts, an annual conference and more.

Employee recognition programs honor the staff who go above and beyond in their contributions to the Carolina community.

And all of it is designed and coordinated by the Professional Development Team, a group of volunteers whose outstanding work on behalf of their colleagues has twice earned the program a NASPA Excellence Award.

Take advantage of all our Professional Development Program has to offer — from small-group discussions with colleagues and campus leaders to division-wide presentations delivered by national experts — and continue your learning with us.
