Starting July 1, the Professional Development Fund will be open for applications for full-time staff members on a first-come, first-served basis. Employees may apply for $750 to go toward any professional-development activity approved by their supervisor. Employees can use this opportunity to get a certification in their field or attend a webinar or other virtual learning during the 2020-21 fiscal year. Funding is popular and goes fast, so submit your application in early July for full consideration.

Would you like to take a class at MSU Denver for professional growth or toward an undergraduate degree? Full-time employees and their spouses or dependents may take classes at MSU Denver tuition-free. The Employee Tuition Benefit is a great way to experience the University from the perspective of a student and learn from our incredible faculty. For more information on this benefit, please attend the next info session July 14. Register here.

Find more information on both programs, including procedures and applications, on the Learning and Development Communications site. Contact Learning and Development at with questions.
