SHAPE: LSC Training & Talent Development

At the Lory Student Center, we are committed to a beneficial learning environment where people can gather, explore, discover, and belong. To do that, the employees who work in and with the Lory Student Center must experience this, too. The SHAPE Training & Talent Development Program seeks to address learning objectives of student employees through a variety of events and workshops throughout the life-cycle of the employee, over the course of an academic year.

Specialized Workshops

Often, specific requests come up based on specific professional development for a staff. If as an employee or supervisor you have a topic you’d like to bring to your staff, let me know! Between the resources at CSU and content creation through me, we can get these needs met. For example, need a training for a staff meeting specifically on ethics or feedback? We can decide how a trainer can come in an present on those topics. The REAL Experience ( also hosts workshops twice a week on many topics. Contact me and we can decide which fits best for your staff!
