Management Development Seminars

Professional development resources available to Willamette staff and faculty

Since 1998, the human resources offices at several local higher education institutions have worked together to provide low cost, high quality training for supervisors and managers. These seminars include a range of topics and change every year, providing continued access to impactful and relevant material. It's also a great opportunity to connect with managers and supervisors at other institutions.
