Office of Human Resources

The Professional Development program supports the University's commitment to developing exceptional staff by helping people at all levels of the organization enhance their personal capabilities and work skills.


We are redesigning our Professional Development programs to align more directly with the University's strategic plan and so are suspending most workshops currently scheduled for 2014.  Go to courses to see what workshops are currently being offered. 

Online Strengths course

This online session was created to support you in bringing the StrengthsQuest tool into your department or group. This course will provide the tools and resources to support you in leading a 90-minute session with your group on strengths.

Conflict Fluency Course

Conflict fluency is the ability to interact and engage with conflict in intentional and effective ways. In this two-part workshop, we will explore different models and approaches to conflict and the ways in which it can be a source of creativity and growth.
