ACE: Achieve Core Enrichment

UT Libraries prioritizes employee development and strives to support employees in their professional development goals. When employees learn and grow, students, faculty, and the Volunteer community win. We all win.

ACE was created to optimize employee development and advance the Libraries’ strategic priority of supporting continuous learning and professional growth for individuals and teams.

ACE includes two main components:

  • Competencies are used to help employees align themselves to the Libraries’ mission of supporting student success and scholarly research. Competencies serve as strategically relevant development targets for individuals and teams.
  • A coaching and development system is used to help employees and managers make development goals, engage in collaborative planning, measure results, and apply learning outcomes in the Libraries and campus community.
