Data source(s) and notes about the submission:
Staff Professional Development and Training was not significantly impacted by COVID-19. However, because the Not Anymore online course (which is assigned to the whole university) was not offered during this timeframe, we chose to report data from FY 19, to be representative of our performance in a normal year.

PageUp (Talent Management System) reports and Be Well completions.
