The A and Horsetooth from west Fort Collins

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 Fall Schedule News

TOD is excited to provide you with the Early Fall Training Schedule. 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 a several ways 1) we offer multiple sessions of the Foundation Courses which are part of the required training for supervisors and we monitor the waitlists to determine if we need to add additional sessions due to high demand, 2) we are dividing our registration for the semester into two parts.  Early fall will cover classes that will be held between August 27 and October 19th.  These trainings will be released first. Late fall will cover classes held between October 22 and December 14th.  These trainings will be released during early fall. We hope 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

Thank you to VPD, HR, and OEO!

We would like to thank the office of the Vice President for Diversity, Human Resources and the Office of Equal Opportunity at Colorado State University for their partnership with us.
