Professional Development Funding

As part of the University’s commitment to an outstanding work environment, UBC seeks to provide our faculty and staff with access to professional development opportunities. UBC Human Resources administers professional development funds for several employee groups at UBC to support them with their learning and development needs. Please visit UBC HR for information on your eligibility and how to apply for professional development funding.

Check with your department administrator to see if there is additional funding within the department for professional development. If the department budget allows for Professional Development funds, there should be an equal and consistent approach as to how the funds are disbursed to all employees.
