Employee Development

Employee Development coordinates and offers development opportunities for faculty and staff at Seattle Central. We provide professional development grants and information, coordinate the Equity in Practice employee development program, connect employees with professional development opportunities, and administer quarterly Development Days. The Teaching and Learning Commons provides employee computer support and eLearning. A meeting space is available.
