Professional Development Program Nominations (2013-14)

Applications are now being accepted for the 2013-14 Professional Development Program (PDP). Now in its 19th year, PDP is one of the most successful career-development programs at UCLA.

The program 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, 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 25, 2013, and the program begins in September 2013. Online applications, as well as a PDP ebrochure, are available in Related Information.
