Five staff members have completed the necessary requirements for the CORE certification offered through the Professional Development Center (PDC). Recipients are: Tammy Griffin, Dean’s Office; Marc Jones, Facilities and Campus Services; Sheila Lockhart, Department of Religion; Jennifer Price, Facilities and Campus Services; Stephanie Reitz, Center for Bioethics, Health, and Society
CORE, which stands for “Cultivating our Organization to Realize Excellence,” was launched in September of 2011 as an outcome of the climate survey to offer more sustained developmental options for faculty and staff on campus. CORE is built around five competencies that are meaningful and relevant to the campus: communication, community, leadership, organizational acumen and personal progression.
The CORE Program allows participants to recognize personal and professional strengths that can be applied to better themselves and the campus community.
Learn more about the CORE curriculum here.
