Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP). This staff program is designed to assess the management skills of high potential, early career supervisors, managers and professionals for future leadership opportunities at the University of California (academics are not eligible to participate). This year an integrated MSAP program is being offered with both northern and southern locations participating in one program that will include participants from the entire UC system. The program is scheduled for April 20 – 23, 2015, at the UCLA Conference Center in Lake Arrowhead.
UC ANR has just been given one slot for the Spring 2015 program, and we are seeking applicants to fill our slot. Apologies for the short notice, as applications are due Wednesday, Feb. 11.
We strongly recommend that department heads, unit leaders and directors discuss the program with supervisors, managers and professionals who exhibit potential for management development and encourage them to apply.
Eligibility requirements for staff participants include (note: academic employees are not eligible for this program):
- Classification at “___” Assistant III Supervisor, equivalent or above
- Full-time career status with a current, satisfactory (or better) performance evaluation
- Designation as a supervisor or manager
Participants will be selected based on an evaluation of the applicant's (1) career goals in management, (2) level of skills essential for performing management functions, and (3) demonstrated career path and/or strong commitment to management skill development.
The cost for the program is $1,095 (including all program materials and room and board for three days and two nights). This does not include transportation or other related travel costs. The cost of the program will be covered by ANR for the successful participant, as well as travel costs according to ANR policy.
Further information and the 2015 online MSAP application form (including applicant and supervisor components) can be found at: http://msap.ucr.edu/. Applications are completed and submitted online. An ANR committee will review all applications and make the final selection.
Completed applications must be submitted online by noon, Wednesday, February 11.
