CSU's Professional Development Institute (PDI) is celebrating its 40th anniversary!

January 14th, 15th, and 16th

This year's sessions offer opportunities to update and sharpen your existing skills as well as a chance to learn some new ones.

PDI is open to all CSU faculty members, state classified personnel, administrative professionals, and graduate students alike.

Its purpose is to provide a time to share ideas, explore issues, and gain insights into learning, teaching, and service.

Time to explore fun topics that you've always been interested in or had a passion for but never had the time.

In other words—time—in the dead of winter, for some professional growth and personal enrichment.

Call For Proposals

If you are a topic expert who has important information to share with co-workers, or you have an idea for a session that you would enjoy sharing, or you have given a presentation as part of a team that would bring interesting discussion and enlightenment to our CSU campus, we invite you to submit a session proposal.

The success of PDI relies on you—and other campus community members—sharing your time and experience. Whatever your expertise or passion might be, we ask that you consider submitting a proposal that you and or your team can deliver during the 2019 Professional Development Institute.

Proposal Submission Deadline

2019 PDI proposals will be accepted beginning September 17, 2018 and closing at 4:30 pm on Monday, November 5, 2018. We ask that you honor this deadline so we have time to carefully prepare the schedule and coordinate the necessary resources.

Registration Announcement

PDI registration will open early December, 2018. Please check your inbox for an announcement or visit this page at that time.
