Professional Development

Divisional Philosophy

The Dean of the College Office provides a wide range of professional development activities designed specifically for staff in the division. These offerings change over time based on the talents and needs of the division. The framework for divisional in-house professional development follows along three trails: Professional/ Technical Skills, Cultural Competency and Wellness. The training scheduled will include large divisional training, small group workshops/ discussions and informal opportunities to gather, learn and build community. All staff in the division are encouraged to attend any programs that interests them.

Campus Professional Development Opportunities

In addition to offerings in the division, there are numerous other professional development opportunities available to staff on campus. Please take a look at the information and schedules below and take advantage of the wealth of resources on campus.

FLIP: The Fitness and Lifestyle Improvement Program (FLIP), a division of the Dartmouth College Athletic Department, is dedicated to providing a variety of health and fitness classes. The program is open to all Dartmouth College undergraduate and graduate students, Dartmouth College employees, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center employees, and Upper Valley residents. The program is designed to increase overall general fitness and health awareness within the college community.

Human Resources: The Office of Human Resources is committed to fostering an environment that encourages employees to seek out opportunities for learning, whether for career development or for personal fulfillment.

Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity: Dartmouth has a charter commitment and a proud tradition of open access for all. We need to live up to that tradition and ensure that we not only provide equal access for all qualified students but that we also encourage a climate at the College that is open and accepting of difference. An academic community can afford to be no less than this.

Health Promotions: The objective is to prepare individuals and groups to take meaningful action to reduce negative, and increase positive, health-related behavior.  This objective is accomplished through individual consultation, prevention efforts, and educational outreach to the College community.

Library- Jones Multimedia: We offer digital media workshops for students, faculty and staff during each term. These sessions provide hands-on training in the use of digital media software and techniques. They are part of a multimedia education program that includes Quick Reference tutorials, online tutorials and consulting assistance.
