The PDRC is a standing committee of the UW-Madison Academic Staff Assembly. This committee has the primary responsibility of selecting the Academic Staff Excellence awards, Professional Development grant recipients, and the Executive Education grants. The committee works to review and make changes to these programs as necessary as well as increase the number of opportunities available to provide professional development or recognition to academic staff.
Agendas and Minutes can be found here.
