Staff Development Policies
Effective staff development is a continuously active collaboration between Duke supervisors and staff. Duke supervisors are responsible for guiding and supporting the professional development of their staff by offering learning opportunities, creating professional development protocols, and providing coaching and feedback. To assist supervisors in providing such opportunities for staff, Duke offers programs and resources that can help staff earn academic credit through continuing education or enhance their work-related skills. Duke staff also share in the responsibility for their own development and should talk with their supervisor about taking advantage of available resources for personal and professional growth.
