About University Staff Development (USDP)
The USDP committee was formed by the Provost of Academic Affairs in the fall of 1995 to begin the process of analysis and needs assessment for staff development, and reporting for WASC. As a result, the University Staff Development Program was established in February 1997.
In Fall 2013, the Provost for Academic Affairs and the Assistant Vice President for Staff Human Resources partnered to broaden the scope of the program and employee inclusion. The program now resides under the leadership of the AVP for Staff Human Resources.
The University Staff Development Program advisory committee is charged with providing program recommendations to the AVP of Staff Human Resources and coordinating training activities for staff development.
