The Adult and Organizational Development (AOD) program prepares students to effectively teach adults in professional and organizational settings, as well as within traditional educational institutions. Graduates of this program are prepared to foster change and development in any professional arena where adult education is a central objective, including:

  • Training and development -- team and individual
  • Human resource management
  • Organizational learning and leadership development
  • Conflict intervention
  • Mediation and alternative dispute resolution management
  • Organizational development
  • Community organizing

Adult and Organizational Development students learn how to assess learning and training needs, and then design and conduct development programs, training and interventions. Students also become competent facilitators of conflict resolution and group decision-making.
