Training and Workshops Overview

Our training sessions focus on a variety of self-improvement and professional development topics. We welcome you to join us for a presentation over your lunch hour or for a more in-depth workshop. View our training schedule to see all upcoming events. If there's a topic you don't see listed that your department would benefit from, please contact us about customized training.

Noon Presentations

Bring your lunch and join us for a noon presentation. As you eat, you'll learn about a wide range of topics, including:

  • Retiring from the university.
  • Health, nutrition and exercise.
  • Using employee perks and benefits.
  • Stress-relieving activities.

We don't offer these programs every semester. When we do, we'll send you event information at the beginning of the semester.

Recurring Workshops

We regularly offer workshops on topics such as:

  • Customer service.
  • Stress management and coping methods.
  • Workplace task management skills.
  • Professional development.
  • Technology skills.
  • Physical health.

We collaborate with other offices to develop these workshops, which may be presented by one of those campus partners. Some of these workshops have grown out of customized training requested by departments on certain topics.

Customized Training

We can develop customized training to meet the needs of your department. We have worked with units across campus to develop and deliver training on topics such as workplace conflict and leadership.

Supervisor Training

Our 10-week supervisor training series gives supervisors (or those interested in becoming supervisors) the skills they need to excel in their roles.
