The Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs is pleased to announce a newly developed workshop series for unit heads. In partnership with Human Resources, the Vice President for Research and Innovation, and the Vice President for Finance and Administration, we have developed a series of workshops and Q&A sessions throughout the year.

Registration is now live for the following workshops for unit heads during fall term.

Topics include: performance management, addressing and differentiating between exempt and non-exempt employees, understanding labor relations, and handling difficult conversations.

    • Budgeting 101 covers a broad range of topics, including an overview of the structure of the university's budget; a discussion of the budget impacts of key decisions unit heads regularly face; review of key budget terms and concepts; and time for Q&A.

Additionally, we are offering the following workshop for NTTF faculty, unit heads, and unit business managers.
