At California State University, Northridge, every employee plays an important part in the success of our students.  To that end, our Professional and Personal Development Program oversees the annual programming of workshops and seminars available to faculty and staff, and to current and up-and-coming managers.  In addition, the Professional Development Program oversees our New Employee Welcome Orientation Program.

PROFESSIONAL & PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMING: CONNECTING THE DOTS - Professional Development partners with campus colleagues and departments to build a robust Professional and Personal Development Program that will engage, inspire, and equip you to continue to be a dynamic and contributing factor in the success of our students.  Select the Connecting the Dots icon above to view our 2014-2015 Calendar of Workshops and Training Sessions - and get ready to shine!

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT - Each year, Professional Development offers a series of seminars and workshops designed specifically for those in supervisory and managerial positions. While some sessions focus on training or improving processes surrounding internal business, the majority of sessions focus on developing the individual to become a manager, inspiring staff, and engaging in the promotion of the University. 

STAFF SERVICE AWARDS & RECOGNITION OF EXCELLENCE AWARDS - On June 2, 2015, Human Resources will host the 49th annual Staff Service and Recognition of Excellence Awards Event.  The Staff Service Awards are an opportunity for the University to recognize staff on their service - each year we recognize staff who are marking completion of service in five year increments.  At the 2015 Event, we look forward to honoring approximately 360 staff and administrators who collectively have provided more that 4,800 years of service to the University!  You can view a complete listing of the 2015 Staff Service Award Honorees.

The Recognition of Excellence Awards honor individuals and teams who embody the mission and values of CSUN in their outstanding performance of their duties, and beyond.  These awards include the Presidential Award, Jolene Koester Team Award, Merit Award, Alumni Award, and the Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion Award.  All faculty and staff are encouraged to nominate a deserving staff member or team.  The nomination deadline for this year is April 17, 2015.
