The goal of the Staff Development Program is to give university staff members the opportunity to grow personally and professionally while at the same time strengthening their engagement with Clemson University.

Participants must complete 150 hours of personal and professional development, university-related service and a preset list of core curriculum activities geared toward increasing participant engagement on a university-wide level. Peer review committees oversee the process and help participants to stay on track with their goals and activities.

Summer is always an exciting time for the Staff Development Program as we celebrate the success of our past cohort while welcoming and getting to know a new cohort.
