Organizational Development & Training

For a number of years, organizational development was an area that the university acknowledged as important verbally, but never funded for success. New leadership in this department has made an exceptional difference in the quality of programs now available. But the department is not positioned to offer more comprehensive campus support due to their limited staff resources and budget. The committee recognized the role that ODT can now play on campus, taking the lead on numerous educational initiatives in support of staff units. The committee recommends investment in this operation and to designate ODT as a central clearinghouse, with the Faculty Center for Professional Development, for campus training programs.
