Student Professional Development
establish a professional development fund for student use.
Project Purpose: The Office of Student Affairs, in conjunction with various academic departments, wishes to establish a professional development fund for student use. These funds would help to offset the out-of-pocket costs students encounter when they apply to attend conferences, conventions, presentations, etc. A student’s financial situation often determines their ability to participate in co-curricular opportunities, specifically those that involve travel and registration fees. The fund will be under the direction of Student Senate and the Office of Student Engagement. Student Senate has recently created a budget appropriations process for student organizations. This fund would operate in a similar manner and could be accessed by organizations or students.
