Leadership Development

Human Resources is excited to announce the 2017-2018 Management Development Series (MDS). This program is a collaboration among local higher education institutions aimed at providing low cost, high quality training for supervisors and managers.

Human Resources pays up to $75 per employee per session, as long as the employee attends the session or cancels before the deadline. Late cancellations and additional costs are charged to the department.

If you are interested in attending any of these sessions, please contact Kris Codron in Human Resources ( or ext. 6237.) Announcements about registration for each session is distributed about 4-6 weeks before the actual event.

We encourage you to take advantage of this valuable professional development opportunity.
