Women in Leadership: Ongoing workshops and events that surround discussion for women in leadership. 

Human Resources Learning & Organizational Development (Workshops/Classes): "Learning and organizational development is an ongoing process that shapes the future of our university and provides individual employees and teams with the knowledge, skills, and empowerment to further their career."-Office of Human Resources

Staff Well-being: These opportunities help to develop space for staff to engage in wellness opportunities that can help with relationship/community building in the Division. They also create a series of social and team-building opportunities during and after work hours for SA staff to gather. Staff Wellbeing will also include topics that will increase the knowledge of certain topics related to higher education and Appalachian State University.  This also includes our Divisional monthly meetups.
