The Staff Senate is committed to advocating for and making a difference in the work lives of WCU staff members. It is important for staff to have access to professional development opportunities and we understand that funding isn’t always available to support these activities. This is why we developed the Staff Senate Professional Development fund. The fund is designed to provide financial assistance to eligible staff members to pursue professional development activities. We hope that this fund allows staff to take advantage of professional development opportunities that they may not have had access to otherwise.
