What can you do with a Staff Development Grant?

“With the assistance of this grant, I attended the Annual Conference on the First-Year Experience and presented on the Recruitment and Retention Strategies of Students with Family Responsibilities. If you have the chance to apply for this grant, I would definitely encourage you to do so!”
