Professional Development for LSA Staff

LSA strongly believes in encouraging staff to pursue ongoing professional development. LSA supports the University of Michigan's Staff Development Philosophy which recognizes that people are our most important resource for sustaining excellence in teaching, research, and service. To enhance the ability of staff members to contribute to their departments and to provide career satisfaction for productive employees, we are committed to supporting ongoing staff development for any staff member. Staff development is defined as growth in an individual's knowledge, skill, and personal effectiveness. Our goal is for all staff members to make the maximum contribution to their departments, while having opportunities to develop their talents, to acquire and use new skills and knowledge, and thus to achieve greater career effectiveness and satisfaction.
