PDI: Professional Development Institute Faculty
Share |

The faculty are the core of what makes PDI both possible and successful. Over the years, we have had a variety of housing professionals volunteer to serve as PDI faculty, and some have enjoyed the experience so much that they have served as faculty for multiple years.  PDI 2020 will be the 12th year of the institute, so join us in this amazing opportunity to celebrate a decade of professional development!

Faculty Nomination process

As the Committee makes preparations for the 12th annual PDI, all are invited to nominate potential faculty members. Please nominate professionals who you believe would make amazing mentors and presenters at the Institute. Nominations should be submitted by Friday, June 21, 2019. All nominees will be contacted and invited to apply. 

PDI was created to provide an opportunity for our members with 3 - 5 years of experience in the housing profession to gain additional development from seasoned professionals.  Twenty individuals will be selected to participate in an intentional curriculum developed by five faculty members.


Faculty applications are due Monday, July 1, 2019, and can be submitted on our website.  More information about PDI, including participant applications, will be publicized in the coming months.  Please see below for the criteria for and responsibilities of PDI faculty.
