Office of Strategic Initiatives

Through customized workplace trainings and initiatives, and for-credit programs, the Office of Strategic Initiatives strengthens organizations, which leads to a stronger, more vital economy.

Our programs help businesses, professionals and students tap into the power and opportunity of the University of Rhode Island. Global companies and small local businesses alike work with us to create curricula and one-day trainings as well as consulting on issues such as best hiring practices, capacity building, and workplace development.

How can we help you?

Working with you as a partner, we get to know you and design custom programs based on your particular business needs. We function as consultants, organizational developers, coaches, trainers, curriculum designers, thought partners, strategic planners, and program evaluators. We’re there from initial consultation through implementation and evaluation of whatever plan we co-create.

Let us help you succeed

Without this program, employees may not even see themselves as leaders. This is a way to bring that out and give them the confidence they need.
