Welcome to Plant Academy – Center for Organization Learning

We Make Blue Grow!

Plant Academy serves Plant Operations as (1) the provider of training for supervisors and managers, (2) a partner in the learning and development of all Plant employees through its leadership role with DACUM (training assessments), and (3) in support of Plant’s targeted and innovative programs for professional growth.

Plant’s long-term vision as a Learning Organization demonstrates that training is critical to an organization’s continuous improvement and quality service delivery. Plant Academy also participates in many different kinds of projects and activities that contribute to the never-ending maturity of a Learning Organization: strategic planning, Operational Excellence planning groups and activities, unit and committee retreats, and Employee Advisory Committees.

Our classroom programs are extended to U-M facilities affiliates employed within U-M Facilities and Operations departments, members of the Facilities Users Network (FUN), and facilities professionals employed in U-M Housing.

We provide training delivered by subject matter experts to directly apply and transfer to the facilities environment and daily work practice. Each opportunity fosters networking and the cross-functional exchange of ideas among facilities professionals in order to benefit our service to the U-M mission and contribute to the effective results for our employees and customers.
