Dimensions, September/October 2003—Why Staff Development Matters

Dimensions coverIN THIS ISSUE
September/October 2003

In these challenging times, when some ASTC members are revising old strategic plans and others are formulating new ones, it’s important to remember the one great resource that all science centers—large or small, new or established—have in common: our people. The success of any plans we make depend on how well we nurture the skills, look for the potential, and engage the creative power of everyone who works in our institutions. In this issue, we look at how some science centers are doing just that.
