Learning and Development at SMU

Learning & Development

 

The value of learning at SMU isn't just about preparing our students for the future. It's also about preparing ourselves. We hope you'll study the opportunities before you, plan your personal actions and have some fun along the way!

As employees, we are fortunate to have access to a wide variety of professional and personal development opportunities. Although we encourage you to get to know HR's offerings, don't stop there! Other departments on campus offer programs that are quite popular among staff and faculty.  Visit the website for the Office of Information Technology, the Office of Risk Management, Continuing and Professional Education (CAPE), and Cox Executive Education for a variety of offerings including certificate programs.

Our individual schools also offer a number of popular programs and eligible employees may be able to use tuition benefits toward specific courses of study. Numerous employees pursue master’s degrees in Liberal Studies, Dispute Resolution, and Higher Education leadership through the Annette Caldwell Simmons School of Education and Human Development. Other schools, including Cox School of Business and Dedman School of Law, provide excellent part-time programs to meet the needs of the working professional.
