Professional Development Program Nominations (2006-07)

Do you want to enhance you management skills, build professional networks and learn more about the structure and culture of the University? If so, the Professional Development Program (PDP) can help you achieve your career goals.

PDP, offered each fiscal year through UCLA Campus Human Resources, Training and Development, is a career-development program that's currently in its 11th year. PDP assists the University in the development and retention of a highly skilled and motivated professional staff. The program supports the advancement of a diverse workforce into leadership positions and has a demonstrated record in 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.

UCLA staff at PSS grades 2 through 6 and equivalent Programmer/Analyst levels are encouraged to participate in this unique experience. Applications for the 2006-07 program are now being accepted through May 19, 2006.
