Guiding Principles

  • We believe that the employee experience is of utmost importance. Therefore, we design and develop employee-centric learning experiences to support career advancement.
  • We value diverse viewpoints and subject matter expertise. Therefore, we collaborate with individuals and groups to offer relevant programs and services that meet the unique needs of the university community.
  • We prioritize quality over quantity. Therefore, we meticulously define projects, programs, and services and allocate resources appropriately to ensure high-quality standards are met.
  • We value evidence-based approaches to adult learning. Therefore, we apply Knowles’ adult learning Theory, Bloom’s Taxonomy, Gagne’s Nine Levels of learning, and incorporate social and collaborative learning, and experiential learning.
  • We recognize the importance of defining success. Therefore, we adhere to the New World Kirkpatrick Model for evaluating career and leadership development programs, and set measures and metrics for delivering excellent customer service.
