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.

Safe Passages (educational video) - will provide you with common sense principles and teach you how to be more situationally aware, instilling confidence when you travel. 

Date/Time:  Thursday, August 21st from 12-1:00pm
Location:  KF Room, University Libraries

Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Prevention in the Workplace – will provide you with understanding of applicable federal and state sexual harassment and discrimination laws as well University policy, outline avenues to report allegations as well as the role that each of us play in creating a safer campus by addressing and preventing instances of sexual harassment and/or discrimination in the workplace.  As a member of the University community, all faculty and staff are expected to participate in this educational program.
