26.3 Attendance at Non-Credit Conferences and Workshops That Are Not Work Related

(Amended 8/13; 7/17)

Effective July 2017, this policy has been revised. For individual changes, see the redlined version

University staff may participate in non-credit offerings such as conferences, short courses, or workshops, which are not work related if such participation will contribute to their overall educational and professional development. Such offerings may be provided on or off campus. The following guidelines apply:

  1. Participation in the offering does not interfere with the performance of regular duties.
  2. If offerings occur during regular work hours, a supervisor's approval may be needed.
