Professional Development

Student affairs professionals are an important component for student success. The work done by our division helps students begin a lifetime journey of self-exploration.  Each month our student affairs professional development team, (Carol Pegg – Chairperson, Sara Caitlyn Potter, Rebecca Estey, Alyssa Galuska, Michael Nolfe and Dan Taylor) will develop division-wide meetings that discuss trends, enhance skills and create opportunities to develop relationships with URI colleagues. Hope to see you at our next event!
