Welcome Back!

Welcome new and returning students as we celebrate the start of a new academic year together. The past two years of the pandemic have taught us so many new ways to connect with one another, and the MATD program is ready to support student well-being and success with more flexibility and accessibility than ever before.

Students, this means we are here for you. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you want to make new connections or need support balancing school and life. You are the reason we are here, and we want to help you find your passion, people, and purpose.

And to our staff and faculty – thank you for all you do to help students not only be successful but also feel seen, valued, and connected at RU.

I can’t wait to see what we experience and accomplish together this academic year.

  • I agree with Martin! I know all the staff takes part into this but I agree that you halve A LOT to do with the recognition! I personally had to make the switch from one program to this program and before making the decision, I was a little nervous making the switch into a field I wasnt to familiar with. After a semester, I do not regret my decision AT ALL! I LOVE the program, I love my professors. Kathy- You had made such an impact in my learning and approach to it all! No wonder we got the recognition. In my other program, we did not have a blog to write on and I love this about our program. Even the beginning of this article, you stated “ MATD program is ready to support student well-being and success with more flexibility and accessibility than ever before.”. That is extremely sweet of the program to be so concerned about us in thats sense. I absolutely love this program and really appreciate everyone’s hard work! Thank you for everything and Im super excited for another great school year!

  • I’m overly excited about the fall semester and looking forward to the classes this semester. Thanks so much Kathy for the updates .

  • Professor Iverson – 3 times is a charm! I know that it will be another great class and another opportunity to learn more good stuff about training and development. Thanks to you for your commitment to our learning and performance!

  • Looking forward to working with both you and Vince. I had seen the post regarding the Top Master in T&D on Linked In but had not heard about the Great Business School ranking. Thank you for the update. Looking forward to the program and learning more about the rankings.

  • Happy to see you are leading the program. They are lucky to have you. Vince is awesome too.

    So great you are encouraging our students to reach out when they need support.

    Very proud Roosevelt University is being recognized as a top Training and Development program.
    Congratulations. I am confident you have a lot to do with that recognition. Keep up the great work.
