Professional Development Collage

The UT System provides a variety of professional development opportunities to cohorts of faculty, academic and student affairs leadership, and staff to enhance institution-wide engagement with—and cultivate greater responsibility for—student success. These programs and events align with the System’s student success framework and three pillars of Finances, Advising and Belonging. They draw on the expertise of the System's faculty and staff, as well as on research and data from within the System, Texas and the nation, and from experts outside the System.

Professional Development plays a vital role in building faculty and staff capacity to create learning environments that support student success both inside and out of the classroom. Professional development is more than holding events. It is creating the conditions in which faculty and staff can share and learn from one another; it facilitates inter-institutional and cross-network fertilization and collaboration. Professional development leverages the university system’s convening power and ensures that the system administration learns from and supports its institutions in achieving their mission, goals and responsibilities.
