UMKC HR Summer Development Series June 24 through September 28

Summer can be a great time to evaluate your lifelong learning goals and plans. The Summer Development Series provides opportunities to sharpen your skills, build a summer reading list, and meet with colleagues to learn strategies to manage stress and improve effectiveness.

The program is designed to give you flexibility to create a summer learning plan that fits your needs. Built on 3 Themes: Summer Stretch, Engagement, and Skills-Build, you have the option to choose from in-person courses and myLearn resources. Select courses from a single theme or mix and match—the goal is to make this the best plan for you!
