Welcome to Learning and Development!

The Drexel Human Resources Learning & Development Team consists of a small group of dedicated professionals whose combined talents bring a wealth of experience to the University. Our expertise ranges from design and facilitation of retreats, meetings and adult learning sessions to collaboration on improvement projects; to consultation regarding organizational change or complex dynamics. Our aim is to collaboratively create a positive, productive and engaged culture at the individual, group and organizational levels within the University.

We serve the University by offering professional development courses and workshops, by assessing learning needs, and by collaboratively planning and executing on a variety of strategies to leverage strengths and increase effectiveness and productivity.
