Re-Imagining U : Strategic Employee Development

UNMC and UNO Re-Imagining U


Employee Learning and Development Program for UNMC and UNO employees

Re-Imagining U gives UNMC and UNO employees the opportunity to customize their learning and skill development in a way that is right for them. The courses are offered repetitively over two semesters each year. Content is derived from needs indicated for employees and leaders in our current strategic vision and employee engagement surveys. Courses are offered either individually or in a cohort format.

In addition to regularly appearing content, Re-Imagining U will also feature one-time speakers and topics – called Electives. The Electives will cover deeper discussions, trending leadership topics, and equity, diversity and inclusion learning.

This semester you will find a few enhancements including:

·        NEW Deep Dive 4-Month Cohort Program on Enterprise Business Agility:  Acquire a high level overview of Agile and Lean Methodologies for strategic project leadership and optimizing your deliverables in an organized way
