Professional Development Program Nominations (2016-17)

Nominations for the Professional Development Program (PDP) are now being accepted. As one of the most successful career development programs at UCLA, PDP is beginning its 22nd year. The program assists the University in the development and retention of a highly skilled, diverse, and motivated professional staff. It 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, coaching, 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. Staff members at PSS Grades 2 - 6 and equivalent Programmer/Analyst levels are eligible to participate and must receive departmental endorsement.

The deadline for completed applications is April 5, 2016, and the program begins in September, 2016. Online applications, as well as a PDP ebrochure, are available in Related Information.
