Reminder to Use Staff Professional Development Funds for 2018/19

As we approach the March 31 fiscal year-end, we encourage staff to use their professional development funds. Professional development funds are designed to support staff in pursuing professional development opportunities that will enhance their skills, knowledge and ongoing career growth at UBC.

Staff are welcome to make claims to their employee group based PD Fund on a first-come, first-served basis until the budgeted funding pool is exhausted or by the end of the fiscal year, whichever comes first.

Prior to submitting a claim, staff should review their current eligibility status and available personal balance through Faculty & Staff Self Service (select “Staff PD” tab to view) and check their respective HR PD Funding webpage for submission guidelines and updates on the overall fund balance.

Notes about PD funds (Fiscal 2018/19)

Information and updates related to both faculty and staff professional development funds are available on the HR PD Funding webpage.
