Eppley, as a unit of Indiana University, is committed to the ongoing growth and development of our staff. In a way, many of the staff are continuing their learning journey by design at Eppley as we continue our mission. This approach benefits agencies, communities, individual participants, the university and of course, Eppley. As staff learn and grow, they sometimes find career promotions or other careers and leave Eppley. We are proud of them and their accomplishments at Eppley and beyond as they to continue their career path post-Eppley.
