In January the University Executive Leadership Team adopted a new set of core competencies for university staff for the Boulder campus. This new competency model translates the campus values into behaviors to ensure that employee behavior aligns with the campus culture and vision. The competencies were derived from the campus values identified by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement (ODECE) in partnership with the campus. Building on ODECE’s comprehensive, campus-wide input process, behaviors were identified based on the descriptions provided in ODECE’s work, as well as review of nationally known research-based competency models. The work is inclusive of values reflected in the Colorado Creed. Presented by Merna Jacobsen, Deputy Chief Human Resources Officer and Mike Murray, Director of Strategic Initiatives. Light refreshments will be provided.
