Leadership, Learning & Performance

Learning Opportunities, Professional Development

You are important. You are valuable. You come to work every day, striving to do your best. We want to help.

Leaders come in all shapes and sizes and are at every level of the organization. Some leaders have formal titles while others lead more informally. You'll find leadership development opportunities under Leadership Programs. Our programs are both formal and informal as well. Please continue your leadership journey through these specific programs.

NEW in 2020 -- Learning Forward Series  A new initiative was started to help William & Mary/VIMS employees be agile and ready to meet the needs of a 21 century workforce. Faculty and Staff are encouraged to develop their competencies in four key areas: Adaptability, Innovation, Technology Acumen, and Inclusive Collaboration.

Four different areas of programming can be found in Be Your Best: At Work; Communications/Team Building; Health & Wellness; and, Mastering Technology. The programs will help you not only develop specific job skills and provide professional development opportunities, but it will guide you to be your best in other parts of life, too.

Can't find what you need internally? The Development Support Fund is available to help you afford learning opportunities that are external to William & Mary. Please note that during FY20-21, the Development Support Fund is on hiatus. We will post a notice when it will be available again.

Thank you for being part of William & Mary and bringing your best every day.  We appreciate YOU!
