Should staff development be highlighted or stressed within the daily work environment?
Of course. What I have learned in finding the answer to this question is that we have an E-learning mechanism on campus where staff can further enhance their background with these two- to four-hour modules. I care very much about retaining staff. One of the best mechanisms for retaining them is to promote from within. If you want to be promoted from within, be it a staff or faculty member, it's also incumbent upon you to enhance your knowledge base and skills and there are ways the campus offers to help you burnish your resume.
