Professional Development Program Nominations (2010-11)


Re: Professional Development Program Nominations (2010-11)

I am writing to request nominations for participation in our annual Professional Development Program (PDP) and encourage you to consider this valuable opportunity for members of your staff. As we plan for the future, it is important to build management competencies, implement strategies to transfer institutional knowledge, and expand career growth opportunities for UCLA's diverse workforce.

The PDP, offered each fiscal year through Campus Human Resources, Training and Development, is a career development program beginning its 16th year. PDP assists the University in the development and retention of a highly skilled, diverse and motivated professional staff. The program has a demonstrated record of enhancing skills, strengthening institutional loyalty, and broadening participants' knowledge of University affairs.

The program features several components including advanced skills training, mentoring, networking, and career assessment. Participants work with department sponsors on special projects of importance to UCLA, enabling them to demonstrate professional skills to campus leaders. Participation requires departmental endorsement and participant commitment.

I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity for staff at PSS Grades 2 - 6 and equivalent Programmer/Analyst levels to participate in this unique experience. Further information and program applications are available in Related Information. In addition, you may contact Program Coordinator, Marsha Coutin, at extension 4-0853, or via email at

The deadline for completed applications is May 6, 2010, and the program begins in June 2010.

Please join us in this opportunity to develop the staff leaders of the future.
