13 Oct News: The Professional Development Institute
SUNY’s Professional Development Institute (PDI) was born out of a request from the campus-wide advancement assessment in fall 2011. The request was for more professional development opportunities for little to no cost (PDI is free!) for beginner staff or for those that need a refresher.
PDI consists of 10 different webinars instructed by two skilled campus facilitators per webinar, with courses running from mid-October to late-November. The webinars were created for beginner advancement staff or staff or those who need a refresher course. Staff can sign up for as many webinars as they wish, but the maximum for each course is 30 attendees. After 30 staffers sign up, a waitlist begins.
For additional details about the initiative, please contact Tracy Soren in SUNY’s Office of Alumni Relations and University Advancement at 212-364-5817 or firstname.lastname@example.org
