Our book clubs provide faculty and staff with an opportunity to grow both personally and professionally while expanding their network.

We are proud to offer customized training, pre-packaged learning sessions (including topics such as DiSC Workplace, Operationalizing Values, Feedback & Delegation, etc.), as well as consultation, assessment, design and implementation assistance to support the learning and development of departmental faculty and staff.
Leadership UCO (LUCO) is a leadership program for faculty and staff across campus to develop their professional and personal leadership qualities, increase their interpersonal skills and expand their network. This program focuses on five core content areas: Self-Development, Leadership Basics, Communication, Group Dynamics, and Strategic Thinking and Problem-Solving.
The Learning Center, UCO’s learning management system, serves as the central hub for employee instructor-led and online professional and personal development information, registration and tracking. Faculty and staff can also take online self- paced development courses at their leisure.
Our Learning Tracks program provides faculty and staff with self-paced, directed learning experiences in 11 key areas. We also provide a Design Your Own Learning Track option for those who are looking for a custom learning experience.

The Management Development Program (MDP) enhances skill sets and prepares supervisors for leadership success. We offer the program in a condensed format that maximizes participants’ learning and application.
New Faculty and Staff
We provide new faculty and staff with the essential information, training, resources and opportunities to get connected to our community before reporting to work. Our onboarding processes and New Employee Orientation (NEO) provide vital information along with an engaging welcome to the UCO family.
