Training & Professional Development

The mission of the Training and Professional Development unit at UDC is to help all employees of the University be successful in their work – both individually and collectively.

The world around us is changing faster than ever.  All of us, from our senior executives to our newest part-timers have to grow in our roles and improve our skills, knowledge, work relationships, work tools and processes. At UDC, no matter how good we are collectively today that will not be good enough for the needs of our community in the months to come, much less in the years ahead. Our collective best must continue to get better. The Talent Management Training and Professional Development Unit is leading this pursuit.

Here at UDC, Professional Development is a team effort.  Training services are provided by subject matter experts from many departments.
