NEW Professional Development Offerings!

Human Resources, in partnership with University Staff Development Programs, is rolling out a series of new professional development opportunities this spring. These courses provide participants with tools for effective communication and team building. We hope you embrace this opportunity to strengthen your leadership and build better partnerships across campus and beyond.

Each course is an interactive, practice-based workshop that provides materials and activities to help you incorporate what you’ve learned. The goal of each is to use interaction skills to foster open communication and promote a culture of trust, mutual respect and collaboration.
