Development opportunities

This section of the guidelines highlights two specific career development opportunities that are new to the university:

  1. Career communities and
  2. Mentoring    

Career communities are important components of the VCU career development process, and are designed to bring employees together to create connections, share knowledge, increase collaboration, promote innovation, solve problems, strengthen competencies and enhance leadership opportunities. The career communities serve as a framework in which to provide a range of learning and development opportunities, including mentoring programs, to help employees stay current in their field, connect to university partners and resources, and provide and support a sustainable structure for ongoing career growth and development. Employees are encouraged but not required to engage with their career community.
