Academic Professionals

Academic Professionals are campus-wide leaders with a diverse set of roles and responsibilities. They are Assistant/Associate Directors, Business Managers, Research Specialists, Coordinators, Project Managers—to name just a few. Their professional development goals often connect to career planning—knowledge and skills needed to succeed in their current and future positions.

Programs for Academic Professionals

Human Resources Series for Supervisors and Managers - Facilitated by campus HR professionals, these 14 half-day seminars review the university’s HR policies and guiding principles.

The Complete Supervisor - Whether your title is manager, supervisor, or assistant-associate director, supervising people is for long distance runners and not for the faint of heart. Your job requires a myriad of knowledge and skills, including how to be a problem solver, mentor, teacher, decision maker, leader, empathetic listener, project manager, and coach to name a few.

Most of us weren't born excellent supervisors and managers, but we can learn the knowledge and skills to bring us to that level. That is what The Complete Supervisor program is all about.
