Staff Enrichment Time

Staff Enrichment Time

Growth in professional and personal development is important at UNCSA. Staff have specific times held during the year to participate in training and development of any kind. Participating in the Staff Enrichment Initiative is not mandatory. Professional development can be for the individual or for teams or departments. The Quality Workplace Committee provides offerings related to health and wellness, intrapersonal skills and technical training. In addition, Human Resources training is offered.
