Welcome to STAR!

Employees who undertake professional development and training activities report greater satisfaction with their jobs. They say they feel more engaged, more motivated, and empowered to make a positive difference in their workplaces. They discover ways to make their work faster, better, and more interesting, and they acquire new skills that can advance their careers.

To encourage A&S staff members to take advantage of these kinds of opportunities, the Dean’s Office created the STAR Incentive program. Now in its fifth year, the program awards the STAR Incentive, a small pay increase, to eligible exempt and non-exempt staff who accumulate at least 20 hours of training per year (May 1-April 30).

You can earn STAR credit for a wide range of activities, including conferences, webinars, training sessions on UA policies and systems, and HR’s work-related workshops, and you can track your accumulated hours throughout the year through the system’s online reporting feature. (See our STAR Eligibility page for details.)
