FAS Managers’ Essentials enhances the capabilities of FAS managers through five modules presented over the academic year. The sessions are designed to be complementary and to build on what is taught in UMT (Universal Manager Training) offered by the Center of Workplace Development in Central HR (a prerequisite to this program).
Each of the Managers’ Essentials modules focuses on a critical management skill or competency and imparts – in a highly interactive manner – the knowledge, tools, and resources needed to enhance that skill or competency. The program also shares HR managing best practices and enables participants to expand their networks with colleagues who participate from across the FAS.
Since its pilot launch in the spring of 2011, more than 200 FAS managers have completed Managers’ Essentials. Past participants have represented a wide spectrum of areas throughout the FAS, including academic departments and centers, institutes, administration and finance departments, and athletics.
