Skillbuilder Sessions- the Staff Senate Professional Development Committee has been hard at work organizing Skillbuilder Sessions. These sessions are opportunities for all staff to learn more about tools to make your work life easier. Our goal is that you walk away from each Skillbuilder Session with at least one practical, usable skill to add to your toolbox. Please click "Suggestion Box" above if you have ideas for future Skillbuilders.
Interested in hosting your own Staff Senate Skillbuilder? Complete the Request for Proposal, telling us about the Skill Builder you would like to present. Once completed, please submit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to learning from you!
