During the 1983-84 academic year, System Administration noted that there were few professional development opportunities for academic staff. As a result, the professional development grant program for academic staff was formed.* Professional development opportunities are an important component of an effective personnel management system. Such opportunities enable staff to increase their effectiveness by expanding knowledge in their areas of expertise, by refining and developing skills, and by enhancing staff morale. The critical functions performed by academic staff require that professional development opportunities be facilitated for institutional as well as individual reasons.
