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.

Talent Development offers both virtual and in-person professional and career development courses. In-person courses will follow CDC and university guidelines and require at least 10 registrants to be held.
