New ‘Leadership Academy’ to offer professional development opportunities

From Human Resources

The Human Resources Department announces the Leadership Academy, its new professional development program for faculty and staff that is dedicated to making the University of St. Thomas a great place to work and a place where people can do great work.

The Leadership Academy is designed and offered exclusively for employees at St. Thomas to support the needs of individuals and departments, both from a personal and a professional perspective.   

The academy will offer this support through an array of professional development opportunities organized into several series that are customized for the specific requirements of different employee groups, including:

  • Faculty
  • Managers
  • Support staff
  • Employees working with technology
  • Sessions open to all  

These professional development opportunities are designed to assist you in fulfilling your current roles at UST as you continue to learn new skills for the future. The Leadership Academy will encourage excellence and foster growth and development at all levels at St. Thomas because learning is a lifelong commitment and a door to future greatness.

The first calendar of offerings for the spring semester is available on the Human Resources Web site. Printed catalogs also are available in individual department offices and in the Human Resources Department, Room 217, Aquinas Hall. A registration form is included in the catalogs for anyone who is unable to register online.

Please remember to seek supervisor approval before registering for sessions. Participation may be limited for some sessions so you are encouraged to check the listings and register early. The Leadership Academy reserves the right to cancel or reschedule individual sessions due to low registration.

Your input is encouraged in order to make the Leadership Academy a program that meets your needs as a UST employee.
