1.10 Training and Development

University travel policies recognize that participation in conferences, seminars, workshops, and visits to other institutions may serve to develop increased job related competence or performance. See the appropriate section of the Administrative Policy and Procedures Manual.

Development and training of staff members is essential to the improvement and efficiency of University service functions. The Training and Development Department is responsible for the coordination of training programs intended to assist staff to gain the knowledge and skills they need to perform their work effectively, inclusive of orientation for new hires and the administration of the Non-Credit Tuition Assistance Program.

Detailed information concerning University staff development/training programs may be obtained from the Training and Development Department.
