Human Resource Development
This course emphasizes the integration of the individual into the organization by studying the current and fundamental issues in organization theory and organizational behavior as they relate to the individual. The effectiveness of the individual in the organization is examined in terms of personal traits such as communicative abilities, leadership style and potential, and beliefs about organizational ethics and social responsibility.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
