ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD (including UCSD Medical Center)
The University of California, San Diego, strives to foster a learning community for staff that supports education, training, and professional development. Continuous learning enhances our capacity to perform and builds our sense of community. It enables all of us to acquire skills to keep pace with the fast-changing demands that emerge from campus growth, advancing technology, and the challenges we take on in pursuing career growth within the University.
The University provides many opportunities and avenues for training and professional development internally (e.g., classroom training and online learning), and recognizes the importance of funding to make additional opportunities available.
The Staff Equal Opportunity Enrichment Program (SEOEP) administers training and career development funds for individuals and departments. On the individual level, the program provides up to $500 for training activities to eligible staff employees seeking a promotion or career change. Similarly, the program provides financial assistance to support departmental training and development programs that will enhance the skills of employees to prepare them for career advancement.
This Campus Notice serves as a call for individual as well as vice chancellor/department proposals for SEOEP funds. Completed proposals must be received by Monday, May 21, 2007. All individual applicants will be considered without regard to gender or ethnicity. For more information, including requirements, selection criteria, and proposal for funds form, go to: http://blink.ucsd.edu/seoep.
You may also contact Linda Olvera at the Equal Opportunity/Staff Affirmative Action Division of Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org or (858) 534-6466. I hope you take advantage of these valuable resources because I believe that the diversity we seek to sustain and improve at UCSD requires that we make a conscious effort to access available learning opportunities.
