Online Professional Development Opportunities

UNLV offers a number of virtual opportunities to invest in your learning and growth.

Professional Development Virtual Discussion Groups

Human Resources is pleased to offer a series of virtual professional development seminars open to all UNLV employees. Seminars are designed to build skills in a wide-range of topics that directly relate to the work we do here at UNLV. Trainers create an engaging environment that combines presentations with thought-provoking discussions. Because of the interactive and engaging nature of the training, you need to make sure you join from your computer and that it has a working video camera and microphone. Participation is free to all UNLV employees, registration is required, and space is limited. Registration closes one week before the day of the training. We will use Canvas for communication and to deliver content. See below for course details.
