Professional Development Training

Our center focuses on the professional development needs of Case Western Reserve University staff and faculty. These training sessions are presented in a virtual format, focused on upskilling and providing tools for professional success to individual contributors and supervisors.

Being a part of a world-class university, we also have access to subject matter experts in a variety of fields that bring valuable expertise to employee growth & development. We partner across campus to offer training sessions and those will be notated at a "Series". 

See the training titles and dates below for our current training offering. Click the "Training Title" to register for the virtual training session.

Registration will open mid-December.
