About Us

As a service department, meeting your needs is our number one priority. Whether it is by organizing a workshop, sharing resources, conducting an observation or collaborating with you, we look forward to supporting your goals.

The Centre for Professional and Organizational Development (CPOD) supports employee learning and organizational development at Niagara College by providing programs, opportunities and services for all College employees. CPOD values the commitment and contribution of all staff and collaborates with individuals and departments.

  1. Creating campus community is important at Niagara College and results in a more supportive campus environment – an important factor in enhancing student learning. One of the greatest vehicles for community building is education and development – with college employees as well as our students.
  2. At Niagara College, we emphasize that all employees are educators. We have modeled our belief in “one community” by organizing professional development under one umbrella which fosters a capacity for connectedness.
  3. We embrace the integration of training and development, organizational development, and career development to improve individual, group and organizational effectiveness.

CPOD offers workshops and consulting opportunities, advice and practical solutions based on theories and best practices.  We encourage employees to deepen and renew their learning by offering a variety of professional development activities, resources and services.

We strive to support the diversity of staff development needs and schedules. CPOD therefore values the commitment and contribution of our NC community.  Development is our individual and collective responsibility.

As a service department, meeting your needs is our number one priority. Whether it is by organizing a workshop, sharing resources or collaborating with you, we look forward to supporting your goals. CPOD invites ideas, suggestions and involvement from all employees…especially you!
