Learning Opportunities

We believe each employee makes an important contribution to the Clarkson community with skills and expertise that are unique and valuable to the University. We provide learning opportunities through a variety of methods including classroom settings and online learning and also external and internal platforms. We are dedicated to providing support to individuals and departments, through different learning opportunities, in terms of leadership training, professional development courses, compliance training and other need based learning to advance their skills, knowledge and competencies.

Learning at Clarkson is a dynamic process and may be achieved not only through participation in formal coursework but also through professional experience, challenging assignments, collaboration, mentoring, participation in activities of professional organizations, and independent study and research. Innovation is encouraged through interventions such as Clarkson IGNITE and the President’s Challenge Program. We also offer educational assistance programs for our staff.

Our learning plan supports the University’s mission and values. We strive to promote teamwork, growth, providing the best service and diversity and inclusion on campus through our learning opportunities.
