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.
Contact any committee member if you have questions, comments, or suggestions.
Twelve members elected by the Assembly. Four are elected each year to serve three-year terms. There are no term limits. All members should have shown commitment to professional development of academic staff.
