ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UC SAN DIEGO
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. All individual proposals must be received by Friday, May 2, 2014. All individual applicants will be considered without regard to gender or ethnicity. For more information, including requirements, selection criteria, and to apply online for funds, go to: http://blink.ucsd.edu/go/seoep
If you are interested in learning how to apply for funds through this program, you can attend the following workshop: "How to Apply for SEOEP Funds," on Thursday, April 17, 2014 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. at the Price Center West - Eleanor Roosevelt College Room. To register for this workshop, please e-mail Linda Olvera at email@example.com.
If you are unable to apply online or need further information, please contact Linda Olvera at Equal Opportunity/Staff Affirmative Action at 858-534-6466 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I encourage you to take advantage of these valuable resources, because I believe that the diversity we seek to sustain and improve at UC San Diego requires that we make a conscious effort to access available learning opportunities.
