Staff Enrichment Day

Staff Enrichment Day Banner

Each year, the College designates a day for the purpose of bringing associate and support staff, both bargaining and non-bargaining, together for professional and personal growth. The collegewide Staff Enrichment Day (SED) is held during spring break every year and is rotated between the three campuses (Takoma Park/Silver Spring, Rockville, and Germantown).

SED offers professional and personal development workshops, a chance to network with other staff, and is the venue at which the Staff Distinguished Service Award is presented. All bargaining and non-bargaining associate and support staff are welcome and encouraged to attend. Certificate award is given out to staff members who have recently completed a certificate or degree program.
