Talent Development empowers and supports a diverse and inclusive workforce to achieve their potential and engage as champions of positive change for the future by investing in the people of Virginia Tech with strategic, high-impact professional development programs.
Talent Development is committed to providing professional development opportunities to help employees claim their role to achieve the aspirations of the university by fostering a continuous learning culture where:
- Managers and Supervisors are engaged in meaningful and relevant learning opportunities to understand what it means to be a leader at Virginia Tech and know how to get things done.
- A Professional Development Community organized with practitioners developing and delivering collaborative learning opportunities for faculty and staff to be more efficient and engaged at work.
- Individual Contributors are supported with curated skill-building professional development content to make learning easier, more accessible, and supportive of career aspirations.
Currently, Talent Development offers virtual professional and career development courses. In the fall, in-person courses will follow CDC and university guidelines.
