Professional Development Conference

Something for everyone!

The University Staff Professional Development Conference is an annual event typically offered in early June and open to all UWEC employees. This event is designed to create a collaborative environment to encourage networking and provide ongoing learning opportunities for University Staff. It exists primarily to increase professional and personal development to achieve work-life balance through enhancing skills, inspiring innovation, and achieving/setting goals to improve the workplace. The date(s) of the event is varied and decided upon by the committee.

The committee is currently soliciting conference session proposals for a diverse body of topics between the two days.  Check back for further details soon.

Highlights from Professional Development Conference 2021 

Exploring the Gateways of Opportunities

After years of offering only one day of professional development, this year we are bringing you a weeklong event! The event is primarily virtual with some hybrid options (in-person and virtual).  Check out the Event Schedule and Brochure! This year, we are partnering with the Employee Wellness Fair to create a “one-stop shop” event. The UW-Eau Claire Employee Wellness group will be bringing in local vendors to showcase their businesses and share their expertise.

This year’s theme, Exploring the Gateway of Opportunities, is a reflection on the past events of adapting to a pandemic working lifestyle and looking forward to what those changes have introduced as opportunities for the future of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and all of our locations as well as extending the conference to colleagues at other UW institutions and community partners.
