Professional Development offers workshops and seminars to help employees build upon existing knowledge, learn new skills, and develop core workplace competencies.
Workshops are held on campus during normal work hours. Participants must obtain approval from their supervisors to attend classes during their regular work schedule. Workshops are available to all employees via open registration on a first-come/first-registered basis. Employees placed on a waiting list will be informed of their status should a seat become available.
