Professional Development Resources for Your Organization

Organizations invest in their human capital in order to be competitive and profitable, to meet strategic business objectives and priorities, and to innovate. HU recognizes this and works with many different kinds of organizations to develop and support training and education initiatives as a part of this investment.

HU is an active member of the workforce community and, therefore, is a local, long-term partner interested in understanding, and responding to, your organization's professional development priorities.

We operate based on the driving values of integrity, responsiveness, flexibility and utility.

We value the importance of experiential learning, and our professional and continuing education programs demonstrate this. Through innovative, applied, and learner-focused programs, participants gain access to expert information, in a way that allows them to reflect on how this can be applied in their day-to-day responsibilities.

  • Noncredit training events, series, and
