The office of Training and Organizational Development designs and coordinates training and development opportunities for personal and professional growth for all Colorado State University employees — academic faculty, administrative professional staff, and state classified personnel. Our vision is to provide experiences and organizational development services that support faculty and staff and align with Colorado State University’s strategic initiatives and mission.

Most training and consulting services are free of charge, though there may be a fee for cost of materials or copy written resources.


To inspire learning – creating an engaged community.

TOD Spring Schedule News

Available now, TOD Late Spring 2019 Training Catalog offers Spring semester trainings from 3/25/19 through 5/10/19. And for our Distance Learners off campus, our Spring 2019 Distance Learning Catalog is also available.

Don’t forget to check My Learning as frequently as you want for training openings. We have gotten a lot of feedback about how challenging it can be to get registered for classes as they fill-up quickly.  We are addressing this concern in several additional ways:

  • During Spring semester, we have put a hold on customized trainings in order to instruct more Supervisor Development Program trainings.
  • We offer multiple sessions of the Foundation trainings, which are part of the required training for supervisors and we monitor those that have high-demand waitlists to determine if we need to add additional sessions.
  • We have added waitlists for all of our Core trainings, which are also part of the CSU Supervisor Development requirement.
  • We divided our registration for the semester into Early Spring and Late Spring, hoping that the two different registrations will allow you to plan your schedule in more reasonable chunks of time and ensure that we have less ‘no-shows’, thereby making space for more learners.
