Professional Development and Personal Enrichment

Date: September 2017

Policy: Bowdoin College recognizes that the skills and knowledge of its employees are critical to the success of the College. Staff members are encouraged to grow and develop in their jobs by participating in training and educational opportunities.

Throughout the year various departments across campus offer a range of learning opportunities through professional development, as well as wellness and personal enrichment programs.  Individual departments may also offer in-service training programs for their staff or arrange with human resources to contract with a professional facilitator to offer customized training or a retreat.  

A listing of College and external learning resources is available on the human resources web site. All upcoming offerings are announced in the College calendar and daily Digest. Supervisors are encouraged to arrange for release time so employees can attend the programs of interest.
