What We Do

Learning and Organizational Development (L&OD) builds the knowledge, skills, and abilities of NC State’s workforce by helping them develop and achieve their potential so that the organizations they work for can succeed and grow. L&OD fosters a learning culture where employees are engaged in continuous learning.  We facilitate this learning by delivering talent and organizational development strategies and services focused on motivating, engaging, and educating a committed and high performing workforce.  We design the best solution to assist you and/or your team in achieving higher team morale and performance. We develop NC State’s talent to Think and Do.

Special Announcement

In our ongoing efforts to continuously improve our services, Learning & Organizational Development has gathered feedback from program participants and the campus community. Based on this feedback, we will be updating our curriculum and delivery methods. Meanwhile, we will temporarily suspend the delivery of our leadership certificate programs. We will continue to offer a number of professional development programs and courses, including Quick Start, HR Academy, and other leadership topics, along with Compass online learning. Thank you for your patience as we strive to enhance the way L&OD develops talent to “think and do.”
