Staff Development

The Staff Development Remission Plan covers training courses offered by the Center for Talent Management and Organizational Development.


If you are a full- or part-time member of the university faculty or staff, you are eligible for work-related training workshops (staff development) with no waiting period. Limited eligibility is also available for temporary or student workers and post-doctoral fellows based on space availability and payment of course cost by the department.

About the Plan

Staff Development allows faculty and staff to attend workshops offered through the Center for Talent Management and Organization Development (TMOD). TMOD helps members of the university community develop skills and capabilities that advance organizational, unit, and personal growth.

Faculty and staff must have budget authorization and supervisory approval. Courses for which staff register and attend are charged to Staff Development.

Courses for which staff register, but fail to attend (or cancel with five working days’ notice) are charged to the departmental budget number authorized on the registration form. Departments are responsible for cancellations if a staff member transfers to another department or terminates employment with the university. The one-week notice for cancellation is waived only for emergencies and written documentation is required.

To Participate

Complete the registration form included in the program brochure and submit to your department for approval. Once approved, submit the form to TMOD according to the instructions on the form. You will receive a registration confirmation or be placed on a waiting list if no space is available.
