UF Training & Organizational Development

UF Training and Organizational Development’s strategic purpose is to help improve the performance of UF faculty and staff.

By providing ongoing personal and professional development opportunities, our overall goal is to help increase UF employees’ effectiveness—and their ability to contribute.  Along with workshops on a variety of topics, such as supervisory skills, leadership, communication, and teamwork, this includes a formal education program that provides funding for college-level courses for participating UF employees.

To learn more about how our training opportunities may best meet your needs, please see our training programs framework.

Beyond our standard programs, we also offer organizational development services based on performance management principles. Contact us for retreat planning and facilitation, customer service assessments, performance needs assessments, retreat planning and facilitation, team development services, department training visits—tailored for specific environments and related to identified competencies—and meeting facilitation.

Training participants are asked to give two weeks’ notice (10 business days) in the event a reasonable accommodation is required to participate in or complete one of our instructor-led or online training sessions. To request an accommodation, please contact Training and Organizational Development at training@ufl.edu. Please arrive on time to attend our workshops to ensure access to the class and to protect your registration. For staff, supervisory approval is expected in order to attend any of our workshops.

We’re sorry, but participants arriving 20 minutes or later after the scheduled start time cannot be admitted into the class. If your schedule prevents you from arriving before the cut-off time, please contact our office and we’ll be happy to reschedule you for the next available session.
