Faculty & Staff TRAINING

WesternU supports organizational development and employee excellence. The University invests in personnel by expanding professional development opportunities. This is achieved by offering a range of personal and professional development opportunities for employees tailored to specific roles and pathways for career advancement. Professional development and training is offered by internal faculty & staff (e.g. Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning, Information Technology, Office of Title IX & Equal Opportunity, Staff Council) and external third-parties.

Administration, faculty and staff may be required to complete specific training requirements as a condition of employment to ensure compliance with federal, state, or local regulatory requirements, as well as university policy and procedures. There may be additional specialized training by the employee’s operating unit (e.g. college or department) that employees are expected to complete.
