Professional Development Funds:

Professional Development Funds are available through the MTC to nourish, extend knowledge and create expertise for employees at the UH Bauer College of Business. Some examples of acceptable opportunities for use of these funds are to attend conferences, pay for memberships or to attend workshops.

Staff members can be awarded up to $1,000 per person from the MTC. However, you or your department can cover additional costs if the total cost of development opportunity exceeds $1,000. The Fund is available for benefits eligible staff who have been with Bauer for at least one year. The Professional Development Request Form is located here:

Bauer Carpool Connection

By sharing a ride to work you save money, save time, save aggravation and help save the environment.

Please look over the list of fellow Bauer staff members currently interested in carpooling to work. If you are interested in carpooling, scan the directory for fellow staff members who share a similar schedule and location with your own. From there, it is up to you to begin communication and start a mutually beneficial carpool relationship.
