    Graham School, UHRM offer benefits-eligible employees free tuition for job-related courses

    University Human Resources Management and the Graham School of General Studies recently announced that benefits-eligible University staff can attend a range of job-related courses at the Graham School on a tuition-free basis.

    The University’s educational assistance benefit currently covers half of tuition costs for Graham School courses. For certain job-related classes, staff members may attend free of tuition charge, since the Graham School provides a tuition waiver and the employee’s department must cover an administrative fee of $100 or $150. Supervisory approval is required to enroll in classes covered by this program.

    “These courses present the staff with additional opportunities for training and growth,” said Chris Keeley, Associate Vice President of UHRM. The tuition-free basis of the courses “also concretely demonstrates that the University supports and nurtures the development of its own people and cares for the growth of its own employees.”

    The Graham School courses offered to staff under this program provide training in a variety of areas, including financial accounting, clinical practice, marketing, strategic decision making, research, mediation, negotiation and writing skills.

    To register for courses, staff members must print and complete hard copies of the registration forms at hr.uchicago.edu/train/registration.html
