(THE) CENTER FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT (CPD)
The growth and development of faculty and staff at RIT is a key aspect to the university’s ability to meet its objectives as a category of one university. Through the department of Human Resources, the Center for Professional Development was created to assist faculty and staff in achieving their professional development goals. It is CPD’s mission to create, coordinate and deliver high quality training and professional development programs. These programs address the needs identified by faculty, staff and administrators throughout the university.
CPD provides programs and services to the RIT community in a variety of ways. In addition to the traditional open enrollment, instructor led, classroom courses, CPD also offers hundreds of online, self paced courses through RIT's E LearningZone, which is supported by SkillSoft. Please visit the Center for Professional Development website (finweb.rit.edu/cpd/) for more information. Additionally, CPD will work with your department, division or college to design customized program to meet your individual needs.
In executing the CPD mission, excellence in providing quality service is central to the manner in which we conduct our business. CPD operates in a manner that acknowledges and is respectful of the individuals, departments, divisions and colleges within the RIT community. Training and professional development needs are fulfilled in an open and collaborative manner. However, when professional development solutions are sensitive in nature, confidentiality is strictly maintained throughout the client relationship.
