Employees recognized for completing educational programs

Princeton NJ — Two educational programs recently celebrated the accomplishments of Princeton employees with graduation ceremonies.

On Dec. 12 (above), the first 30 people to complete the Management Development Certificate Program were recognized during a luncheon at Chancellor Green. Offered through the Office of Human Resources since last February, the certificate is part of a learning and development curriculum intended for all employees.

Those enrolled in the curriculum may enroll in one or two classes to work on a specific area, or may pursue the eight courses required for the certificate. The certificate program was created to provide learners with a structured, holistic learning experience targeting the key skills and competencies needed to manage effectively, according to Maureen Imbrenda, manager of learning and development (pictured front row, fourth from left).

During a Dec. 19 ceremony at Maclean House (below), 18 University employees were recognized by President Tilghman (pictured in center of group) and other key administrators for completing the “Excelling at Princeton” program. The program is intended to make the employees more effective in their current positions as well as to provide the participants with additional skills that will allow them to be more competitive candidates for lead and supervisory positions at the University. Since the program began in 2003, a total of 88 employees have graduated from it.

Staff members from departments such as building services, dining services, housing, grounds, maintenance and University services were selected for the program and took classes on campus through a partnership with Mercer County Community College. The program was supported by the offices of the provost and the vice presidents for information technology, human resources and facilities. An evaluation of the program and its structure will take place during the spring, and it is expected to resume in the fall of 2007.
