Professional Development Council

Message from the Chair

Hello friends, I am John Banter, Chair of the Student Affairs and Enrollment Management (SAEM) Profession Development Council (PDC).  The PDC is a resource to the staff members of the SAEM.

The goal of the PDC is to support and enhance the professional and personal development of SAEM staff.  We do this in several different ways, most notably:

  • Providing professional development opportunities
  • Recognizing the contributions and achievements of SAEM staff members
  • Giving back to the University and the community through volunteerism
  • Providing networking opportunities to SAEM staff

Get familiar with your PDC council by browsing the members tab.  Let us know how your PDC can best serve you.
