Student Affairs Committees and Work Groups

Statement of Rationale:
The Division of Student Affairs is invested in the professional career development of its staff, including professional staff and professional administrative staff. To that end, myriad opportunities exist for staff to volunteer for divisional committees and workgroups. Staff are encouraged to discuss their interests in divisional service with their supervisor before requesting to serve on a divisional committee or workgroup.
