Professional Development

Professional Development is the continued process of improving and increasing capabilities of faculty/staff through access to education and training opportunities carried out through a variety of activities. These professional development activities will provide added value for IGI employees through the following outcomes:   Enhancing skills and abilities, providing increased job-related knowledge, improving productivity and efficiency, and preparing employees for higher-level positions. Professional development activities can occur at Kennesaw State University but may also take place in a variety of other profit and non-profit entities outside KSU such as other universities, education service agencies, technical assistance providers, networks of content-area specialists, and other professional organizations and associations. Activities may include but are not limited to, domestic and international travel, conferences and symposiums, courses and workshops, research and scholarly activity, and collaborations and partnerships. All requests for professional development funding should not only benefit the individual, but should support the Institute for Global Initiative’s goals for internationalization.
