IT Professional Development Activities

Information Technology staff are required to pursue professional development to ensure that their skills keep pace with industry standards and their peers. IT's internal professional development and staff engagement opportunities are described below.

Mentoring
Any IT staff may be a mentor, mentee, or both. Mentors gain the satisfaction of sharing their expertise with mentees looking to advance their skills and knowledge. Mentees gain valuable access to experts who can share their experience, advice, and direction.

Online Courses for Professional Development
IT staff are encouraged to expand their skills and knowledge with online courses offered via Ellucian, New Horizons, EDUCAUSE, Global Knowledge, and Learning Tree, Microsoft, and Lynda (via the New York Public Library).
