The Department of Human Resources supports the growth and development of our employees.  Our overarching goal is to provide quality training and professional development opportunities that enhance knowledge, develop skills, and enrich both the employee and the organization.


Learning and Development Opportunities

Whether in the classroom or online, Cal Maritime employees have options to expand their learning opportunities.


Work/Life Balance/Future Planning

Most of us manage our lives successfully. There are times, however, when personal problems interfere with relationships, job performance, and physical health. Everyone can benefit from help when these difficulties arise. The Department of Human Resources offers FREE and confidential counseling and referral services via the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), administered by LifeMatters by Empathia. 


Continuing Education

The Tuition Waiver Program provides the opportunity for eligible staff, faculty, dependent children, spouses or domestic partners to take classes at any CSU campus at significantly reduced rates.  You may be eligible for the following professional development opportunities:

  • Complete a degree with a Tuition Waiver for yourself or dependent
  • Take a work-related Cal Maritime course

Pursuing your personal and professional development goals may be easier than you think. Please contact the Department of Human Resources or vision the Tuition Waiver page for more information.
