Creating a Community of Respect

Our University is committed to promoting a work environment that is welcoming, inclusive, and respectful for all.

To support and reinforce this mission and comply with the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) amendments of the Clery Act, we are asking that all employees complete this online training program within 30 days.

Living Notre Dame's Values (required for managers and supervisors)

This program reinforces that, at the University, healthy discourse is encouraged, concerns are expressed, misconduct is reported, retaliation is not tolerated, and constructive remarks, however critical, are heard and appropriately considered. Created as part of our mission, this workshop will help us all to be more effective in our common work. We are a better place if we listen to differing opinions respectfully and learn from one another in a way that strengthens trust. (Register via eNDeavor)

Better Conversations Everyday

This interactive workshop teaches coaching skills that a) foster trust, empowerment, and respect/fairness b) equip all to speak up, give feedback, and better collaborate c) accelerate the growing culture of coaching at Notre Dame. While coaching skills are valuable at all levels on our organizational chart, this particular session gathers supervisors/managers to build connections, share common challenges, and exchange best practices. Join colleagues from throughout campus for large-group discussions, breakout exercises, and relevant practice sessions. (Register via eNDeavor)
