During orientation, new employees meet and hear from campus partners, network with other new employees, learn tips to be successful at CCU and so much more! We look forward to meeting your new employees soon.  

Coastal's Admin Support Team (CAST)

Coastal's Admin Support Team (CAST) is a group of administrative professionals who come together to learn, network and provide support. Members of this group are engaged in enhancing their professional development and active in contributing to the group’s success.

Feel the Teal® Service Excellence Modules

These eight training modules are designed to teach all CCU employees the skills and knowledge that is necessary to ensure our customers always Feel the Teal. Our mission is to positively impact the service culture through training and individual interactions. Employees who attend these eight two-hour training modules can expect high energy from the module leaders and are encouraged to actively participate. All sessions will include a handout and a PowerPoint presentation.

Feel the Teal® Student Series

The student series is designed to help student workers and leaders at CCU provide an excellent customer experience for everyone with whom they interact. These six one-hour training sessions cover topics and themes similar to the employee modules. However, each session has been customized to be applicable for all students. We hope to prepare students not only for their current jobs on campus, but whatever their future careers may have in store.

Feel the Teal® Service Mindset Series

For those employees who complete the eight service excellence modules, the question that is often asked is, “What’s next?” The Service Mindset Series offers a chance for employees to continue their service excellence training and education while also taking action. These four training sessions require that employees reflect on the service they provide both personally and departmentally.

Training Institute for Emerging Leaders, Managers and Supervisors

The Training Institute for Emerging Leaders, Managers and Supervisors will focus on building core leadership, management, and diversity and inclusion competencies that further enhance the knowledge, skills, and abilities of CCU faculty and staff. The focus of Track I is to develop and foster self-awareness strategies that participants can utilize to gain a better sense of themselves and a clearer plan to self-actualization. Track II, starting in September 2017, will focus on exploring leadership development competencies. Track III, debuting in September 2018, will introduce opportunities for participants to define their strategic philosophy and explore how it aligns, or not, with the University’s strategic plan.

Book Discussions

Open sessions are available each month to discuss a book that relates to professional development.  One book is selected for three months to provide CCU employees ample opportunities to attend and join a book discussion.
