Transforming How We Develop Texas A&M Employees

Based on a needs assessment involving a large village of diverse employees from different colleges, divisions, and other System members to transform how we develop Texas A&M employees, we are focusing on…

Competency-based development in alignment with one's role – current and future

This involves:

  • Programs and services aligned to key functions and roles of the University
  • Longer-term outlook and progressive development
  • Helping people learn, practice, and easily access and reference what they need to know and do for their job
  • Expanding Learning Technology (eLearning), Evaluation and Organizational Development efforts

Our Current Shaping Plan

Below is our current shaping plan. Some of the development and resources for your role are already available—check out the Development and Resources for Your Role page. Also, be sure to check out the evaluation results and what participants are saying after completing development that has already launched by visiting our latest evaluation results.

During this transition, we are continuing to support delivery of the more popular courses. Check out our Schedule of Events.
