IT Professional Development Activities
Fordham IT staff are required to pursue professional development to ensure that their skills keep pace with industry standards and their peers. Fordham IT's internal professional development and staff engagement opportunities are described below.
Several times of the year, the Office of the CIO hosts a gathering for the entire IT staff, enabling colleagues to meet, greet, and celebrate each other. Events include the annual holiday party, a year-end BBQ, and a wellness lunch.
Any Fordham IT staff may be a mentor, mentee, or both. Mentors gain the satisfaction of sharing their expertise with mentees looking to advance their skills and knowledge. Mentees gain valuable access to experts who can share their experience, advice, and direction.
Online Courses for Professional Development
Fordham IT staff are encouraged to expand their skills and knowledge with online courses offered via Ellucian, New Horizons, EDUCAUSE, Global Knowledge, and Learning Tree, Microsoft, and Lynda (via the New York Public Library).
