Talent Development

Talent Development is an innovation hub – an ongoing project where we will shape, together, what it means to be an engaged, entrepreneurial in spirit staff member at UC Merced. Through our collaboration with campus and community members and our customized programs, services, and learning communities, we foster healthy living, working and learning environments for UC Merced staff members.


Invest in yourself by joining your community.


We partner with campus units, systemwide initiatives, and the Merced community to provide programs, activities and resources to help staff reach their mind, body, family, and nutritional wellness goals.


We provide programs and resources for staff to become engaged campus community members who take ownership over their careers and contribute to UC Merced’s workforce goals.


We provide experiential learning opportunities for on-the-job learning for staff (both on a systemwide and local basis) via the integration of social learning technologies that will empower staff to reach their personal and professional goals.

What does it mean to work at a research university?

"What is it we are questing for? It is the fulfillment of that which is potential in each of us.  Questing for it is not an ego trip; it is an adventure to bring into fulfillment your gift to the world, which is yourself." - Joseph Campbell, Pathways to Bliss
