Welcome to the Staff Development Center!



While faculty and administrators serve critical roles toward fostering such an environment, our CSUF staff are the heartbeat of our campus and occupy unique spaces that are often the difference for our students. It is in recognition of this responsibility that the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Equity Programs is proud to announce the Staff Development Center, located in CP-207.


Before the inaugural Staff Development Conference in September 2021, we asked staff what they were hoping to experience as part of a staff focused conference. From these responses, the conference, and now the center, are centered around the concepts of Diversity, Leadership, and Wellness.
