Human Resources Classes

University of Hartford recognizes that staff development leads to responsible and effective administration while broadening the skills of staff, and that it is in the best interest of both the University and the individual.  Staff are responsible for providing the motivation for their development, since all development is self development.  The University is responsible for providing the opportunity and access to occupational education to the extent resources allow. (Staff Employment Manual, Chapter 6.04 – Staff Development).  With this in mind, I am reaching out to you regarding several training and educational opportunities being sponsored by HRD which are free of charge to University faculty and staff as outlined below.
