Managing at UF: The Supervisory Challenge
Managing at UF: The Supervisory Challenge is designed to provide University of Florida leaders with meaningful information about the knowledge, skills, and behaviors necessary for being an effective manager in our diverse university environment.
In the fall of 2010, Managing at UF: The Supervisory Challenge was redesigned to align with the University of Florida’s Leadership/Management Competency Model, with new workshops and certification requirements. This certification includes a range of workshops designed with UF in mind. Workshops are free and open to all faculty and staff who are interested in learning more about being an effective manager.
To achieve the “Managing at UF” certification, participants will attend ten required workshops and two electives—for a total of 12 workshops. Employees who choose to work toward the Managing at UF: The Supervisory Challenge certificate can do so at their own pace and complete workshops in any order. There is no time limit for completion of the new certificate.
Certain workshops taken under the earlier version of the “Supervisory Challenge” certification will count toward this new certification as well.
Here’s an overview of the Challenge; required courses are indicated with an “R.” For detailed descriptions and a schedule, please see the Courses page.
