Employee Development Day is back! The Passport to Excellence: Develop U themed day will be held Wednesday, May 20th in the W. A. Franke College of Business and Rolle Activity Center.  The purpose of this day is to offer free workshops for our employees to further their development (personally or professionally) or learn a new skill in a variety of areas.

The conference format is designed for participants to join us for a half-day – either the morning or the afternoon for three one-hour sessions. Each workshop will be offered one time in the morning and one time in the afternoon. Therefore, we are asking for a time commitment of two 60-minute sessions for each workshop. The timing for the sessions will be as follows:

Session 1 8:00 – 9:00 a.m. and 12:50 – 1:50 p.m.

Session 2 9:10 – 10:10 a.m. and 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

Session 3 10:45 – 11:45 a.m. and 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.

Specific questions about the program call may be directed to Cassie Petit at (928) 523.9338. 

All classes listed below are open to all benefit-eligible employees! You must register for your seat in the classes below through LOUIE.  The course number is included for an easier search in the LOUIE system.
