Professional Development

Professional development is an ongoing process that shapes the future of our university and provides individual employees with the knowledge, skills, and encouragement to further their career. We offer a wide range of training & development opportunities to promote a campus-culture that:

      • Empowers individuals to take ownership of their career development,
      • Values learning and development by encouraging and supporting employee participation in personal and professional development opportunities, and
      • Leverages learning and development opportunities to deliver exceptional job performance, improve employee satisfaction, and prepare our workforce for future growth.
