Our Dean

Welcome Message

Dear Colleague,

Today's workforce faces many challenges, such as rapidly changing technology and the evolution of business practices. The skills needed today are seldom sufficient to meet the needs of tomorrow. Our commitment is to prepare federal employees to keep pace with change, support the organizational missions, and confidently manage their careers. As part of that commitment, we strive to make learning as accessible as possible through our learning centers, technology-enabled learning, and portable training courses and programs.

I invite you to contact me directly at 202-208-3648 or by e-mail at linda_mcpheeters@ios.doi.gov with your comments and ideas for making DOIU the best that it can be!
