Professional Development Institute

The 44th PDI is an opportunity to connect with each other, learn together, explore new ideas, network, and celebrate our CSU community.

PDI offers CSU faculty, state classified personnel, administrative professionals, and graduate students an opportunity to explore a wide range of topics designed to enhance their professional growth and personal enrichment as we try to address the whole person and bring balance between work related skills and personal advancement. The purpose of PDI is to provide an opportunity to bring us all together to share ideas, explore issues, and gain insights into learning, teaching, and service, as well as other professional and personal activities.
