Are you a staff supervisor or manager who is ready for a leap in your professional development? If so, apply for the Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP). The next MSAP will take place April 18-21, 2016, at the UCLA Conference Center in Lake Arrowhead.
This program is designed to assess the management skills of high-potential, early-career staff supervisors and managers for future leadership opportunities at the University of California (academics are not eligible).
UC ANR has one seat for the April 2016 program,and we are seeking applicants. Applications are due Jan. 20, 2016.
We strongly recommend that unit leaders and program directors discuss the program with supervisors and managers who exhibit potential for management development and encourage them to apply.
Eligibility requirements for staff participants include:
- Full-time career status with a current, satisfactory (or better) performance evaluation
- Career Tracks job classification 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. ANR will cover the cost of the program (including eligible travel expenses) for the successful applicant.
Expect a demanding program with assessees in activities from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. and no time in between to check email or attend to work responsibilities. Assessees also eat with other assessees and share lodging. The applicant's supervisor is also required to complete a supporting statement as part of the application process, and commit to participate in the required post-program activities.
Instructions for submitting applications online and further information about the program are at http://msap.ucr.edu. Make sure to choose UC ANR, not UC Davis, in the application. A UC ANR committee will review all applications and make the final selection. Completed applications must be submitted online at http://msap.ucr.edu by Wednesday, Jan. 20.
