Supervisory Development Lab Courses

The Office of Human Resources is developing an integrated leadership development approach that supports leaders across the University.  The program is built around the key challenges that University leaders face and the corresponding competencies that help leaders succeed.  This approach supports leaders as they work with faculty and staff to enhance and improve employee engagement.

Research shows that leaders learn through doing, so the Office of Human Resources developed the broader program to blend classroom and online learning, assessments, on-the-job experience, and coaching.  See the "Leadership" link on our Home page for information on current programs.
