CU Grow (formerly the Staff Development Program) emphasizes personal development as well as professional development. The program’s 150-hour curriculum culminates with a team service project, illustrating a commitment to the University and to the welfare of our surrounding communities.

While an in-person welcome is eagerly anticipated, CU Grow’s inaugural cohort moved forward with a virtual kick-off on Sept. 1.
