The Center

Welcome to The Center for Learning Culture at SJR State

Learning culture refers to the shared values and practices within an organization that shape, promote, and reflect the organization's commitment to continuous learning, growth, and adaptation. In a thriving learning culture, individuals are encouraged and supported to acquire new skills, knowledge, and perspectives. Learning is seen as a collective, ongoing process, not a one-time event. An organization with a vibrant learning culture prioritizes professional development, reflection, and innovation while valuing curiosity and the ability to learn from failures as well as successes. The department of Learning Culture and Innovation along with its web site, The Center for Learning Culture (The Center, for short) was created with these principles in mind. 

As an SJR State employee, The Center is your source for opportunities and resources supporting professional development, upskilling, engagement, and training that results in improved experiences for our students and coworkers.

We'd love to hear from you!
