The Division of University Facilities is dedicated to providing first-rate services and maintaining a clean, safe environment. A key component of this is our commitment to provide our staff with access to various types of training. Each staff member has the opportunity to participate in professional development seminars, computer literacy training through the Office of Information Technology, health and safety training through the Office of Environmental Health & Safety, informative personnel seminars through the Division Human Resources, and skills training.
Cornerstone – Online Training
In October 2016, the Division implemented the Cornerstone Learning Management System (LMS). Cornerstone allows University Facilities staff to participate in online training courses and serves as a repository for tracking all training activities within the Division.
Please contact the Learning and Development office for assistance with Cornerstone.
“Connect Corner” Computer Kiosks
Computer stations are available around campus for our employees’ convenience. These stations, known as “Connect Corners,” are available 24/7 for Facilities staff to utilize for Cornerstone training, or to access the Workday Human Resources system.
