Leadership Development and Training Opportunities

The University of Minnesota supports its employees by providing a range of in-person, online, and other professional development opportunities. Our leadership development and training opportunities align with the University's mission and the strategic direction of colleges and units. Opportunities include:

Leadership Development Program

  • Content is customized for University leaders. OHR partners with other colleges and units to provide experiences that reflect both the high-level strategic challenges faced by University leaders as well as the tools, resources, and understanding to support University policies.
  • Supporting leaders through informal and formal learning. Classroom-based training is reinforced through developmental relationships including a leadership community of practice.
  • Leadership training customized by level and experience. OHR is developing a comprehensive approach to leadership development that is easy for leaders and individual contributors to navigate. Offerings will be tailored to meet the different needs of leaders up and down the organization, yet still be based on University challenges.
