Bringing Our Values to Life

Together with the Values Culture Ambassadors, the People & Values team sheds light on our core values and provides guidance on how we can operationalize them in our daily work. Meet your Values Ambassador and ask how you can get started.



The People & Values team proudly coordinates several leadership development programs as part of our commitment to the growth of all TTUHSC team members. Our full-cycle development programs are designed to ensure development is available to all team members, regardless of their years of service or position within the University. 


Map Out Your Development Journey

Our full-cycle development programs are designed to ensure development is available to all TTUHSC team members (Faculty and Staff), regardless of their years of service or position within the University.

As you consider each of these programs, we encourage you to reflect on your role within the organization to determine which programs best meet your needs. Ideally, we would have team members complete each program in order, but we understand everyone has different leadership development experiences. Should you have any questions on one or all of our programs, please reach out to the Office of People and Values.
