Staff Connection & Appreciation Events 

These events are held throughout the year with the purpose of connecting and appreciating staff both within the home campus and across the extended network. These events usually feature activities, treats, Webster swag, and sometimes appearances by the Gorlok! Events vary from year to year, but typically include a back-to-school social, a winter luncheon, and others. Follow the WSA Facebook page to stay informed of all community connection events. We look forward to having you join us!

Professional Development Day

Professional Development Day is a day dedicated to the professional advancement of staff at Webster University. It takes place during Spring Break each year and features the talent of our own experts. Striving to be inclusive to all our campuses, select sessions are live streamed and recorded. Staff can attend as a guest, gain valuable presentation skills by hosting a session, or assist with planning by joining the Special Events Committee.
