Welcome to Training & Professional Development (TPD) at Cal Poly Pomona!

Training and professional development for staff, faculty and administrators is a vital element of our success at Cal Poly Pomona.  The overarching goal of our Training and Professional Development Program is to make and maintain Cal Poly Pomona as a learning organization.  The theme which is woven throughout all of our training is that Cal Poly Pomona is student centered, faculty & staff focused, and community minded.  We want to support the growth and development of our employees, both for their benefit, and in order to make the university a better place for students. 

Your comments and suggestions regarding programs offered by TPD are welcome.
