They offer a variety of training and learning resources. Please click here to access the TRAIN™ Workshop Schedule.

Organization Development & Training (ODT) is now HR/Talent Management (HRTM). The new name more fully represents the role they play as part of the Human Resources Division and the services they provide to the USF community. It reflects how the organization views the people, the talent they have to accomplish the mission of the University. Their success comes down to people and what they know how to do. Talent Management provides the systems and tools to develop the right people for the right positions to achieve mission success. Talent Management also hosts the website where all USF employees can register for any professional development workshop. Please click here to access the lists of classes currently available.
