The Staff Development Committee (SDC) plans and coordinates faculty and staff development activities and administers professional development endeavors. Its three primary activities include:
A special Staff Development Fund is assigned by the Chancellor to make possible a number of staff development activities not otherwise provided for. The Staff Development Committee oversees the Fund. Three signatures are required for all requisitions: the Chancellor, the respective unit supervisor (Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs, Vice Chancellor of Student Services, etc.), and the Fiscal Officer.
Additional funds are raised by the Staff Development Committee and kept in a UH Foundation account. Whenever possible, it is preferable to use SD funds.
