Management Development Seminars

Another academic year is upon us, which means it is time for 2019-2020 Management Development Seminars (MDS) Series!

All of the MDS workshops below were chosen because they offer a focus on strengthening leadership acumen, empathy, and cultural competency that can redirect and reshape departmental and organizational culture. Participants are from local higher education institutions, so you'll get a chance to meet and work with your peers from schools like Lewis and Clark, University of Portland, and Portland State. The cost is $90 per session (with the exception of Design Thinking and Mindfulness).

All MDS sessions take place from 8:30 am - 4:15 pm.

Open to supervisors of staff and/or students.
