Leader and Culture Development

Leader & Culture Development

The Leader & Culture Development office supports the values-based culture and leadership initiatives for the TTU System and its component universities.


The Leader and Culture Development office offers services to the TTU System Administration and to component institutions of the TTU System related to people development and integration of culture based on the shared core values of each individual university or system entity.

Values-Based Culture

Our work across the TTU System identifies existing core values that individuals share and then codifies those values with desired behaviors, creating a framework of accountability for all stakeholders, including students, faculty, staff and administrators. We involve a broad collection of stakeholder groups in an initial values summit where we identify and define shared values and write desired behaviors that indicate when we are living those values. Subsequent work is to develop a collaborative, cross-silo values council at each entity to integrate the values into operational processes including hiring, recognition and promotions.

People Development

Leader & Culture Development team members work with components of the TTU System to inventory and understand what programs are working well and what is needed to meet future needs. We pay special attention to succession planning, so we can develop internal candidates to be prepared for the responsibilities of the next position in their career path. We focus on the priorities needed at the System Administration and each university and tailor programs to meet those needs. Our team works with a component-specific advisory council to stay aligned with the institution’s strategic plan for people.
