ATD University (ATDU)

Training budgets are tight everywhere, but probably even more so within non-profit organizations. In most cases, staff development takes a back seat to providing for the basic needs of Central Iowans.

As talent development professionals, we can help.

Each fall and spring semester, ATD representatives and a steering committee made up of non-profit leaders from Central Iowa select topics and host three training sessions associated with the following educational tracks:
•    Personal Development
•    Leadership Development
•    Wellness

Participants are limited to employees from participating non-profit agencies.

They provide the classroom space, and ATD members provide the training. It’s a great partnership, but it depends on one key ingredient: You!

Our Mission
