UCD has their own staff development office and they offer great classes and resources. But, within each position, you may have no one to train you and often what is taught at the campus level is only the start of what you may be doing in your department and position. Understand that 'professional development' does not mean that the University or your Department will be paying for you to receive a UC Davis degree, it's not that kind of professional development. Examples of professional development include certificate series such as "Developing as a Supervisor", "Analytical Skills", "Contracts and Grants", "Academic Personnel." Most are UC Davis specific, and specific to jobs on campus. Time to go to the classes has to be approved by your manager, but are generally part of your work-time, unless your manager doesn't approve which I've almost never heard of happening.
UC Davis is the pinnacle of academic achievement when it comes to the majority of graduate students and professors.
They do a great job in preparing you for the real world.
