Webster Staff Alliance
The purpose of the Webster Staff Alliance (WSA) is to serve as a means of support to its constituency. In this capacity, we address issues, concerns, and topics of interest as identified by our membership by means of group discussions and exchange, guest speakers, workshops, and dialogue with appropriate parties.
WSA aims is to create an environment where all staff love their jobs and are proud to be a part of the Webster community.
Employee Recognition Program
The first Gorlok Greats was a success. Staff recognized over 40 colleagues for their achievements and service to Webster University. The next nomination session will be August 1st - October 15th.
Professional Development Opportunities
Professional Development Day is organized during Spring Break each year. Individuals from around the Webster campuses can get involved. Host a session, attend as a guest, or join our Special Events committee to plan the event. After each event, guests are invited to take the PDD survey to provide valuable feedback. Select sessions are also recorded.
Go2Knowledge offers on-demand professional development sessions that are all geared towards higher
education professionals. With over 100 trainings, Webster staff can learn more about
organizational development, supporting student success, and technology.
Staff Professional Development Funds are available to off-set the costs of staff attending work-related training sessions. Individuals can request up to $1,500 every other fiscal year. See the policies and procedures and contact WSA with all requests.
Webster Library Professional Development Resources is collection of materials that cover several professional development topics. These e-books and videos cover motivation/coaching, leadership, diversity, teamwork, and decision making. This is an active collection; if you have any requests for additional resources, please email WSA.
