Organizational Excellence was launched at Fresno State in 2014. Prior to that time, we had a long tradition of employee learning and wellness which was led by a small unit under Human Resources. We also had a history of supporting continuous improvement and change initiatives led by a Project and Change manager in the office of the Vice President for Administration. In 2014 we combined these efforts and created the Office of Organizational Excellence.
Organizational Excellence creates and leads organizational and professional development programs designed to nurture a culture of change, continuous improvement, and innovation and build organizational and individual capacities within the Fresno State community. We support efforts to pursue excellence as a learning organization committed to innovation, improvement, workplace quality and wellness. We create opportunities to collaborate, innovate and develop in order to encourage learning, facilitate engagement and build community.
The Manager reports to the Vice President of Human Resources, and collaborates with several partners across campus including University and Auxiliary Human Resources, Faculty Affairs, the Office of Academic, and Institutional Effectiveness, Center for Faculty Excellence and the Office of the President.
