Re: Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP)

Campus Human Resources (CHR) is pleased to announce recruitment for the 2014 Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP). The program is designed to assess the management skills of high potential, early career supervisors, managers, and professionals for future leadership opportunities at the University. This year the program is piloting integration with the northern region of UC campuses into one program that will include participants from the entire UC system. Coordination will remain at UC Riverside, and programs will continue to be held at UCLA’s Lake Arrowhead Conference Center.

MSAP enables participants to identify managerial strengths, determine areas for improvement, learn about the range of skills necessary for effective management, and practice those skills in a supportive environment. Participants work with an assigned assessor to design an individualized development plan.

Applications are currently being accepted for the Fall 2014 program, scheduled for October 13-16, 2014. We strongly recommend that department heads discuss the program with supervisors, managers, and professionals who exhibit potential for management development and encourage them to apply.

Eligibility requirements for UCLA participants include:

  • Classification at PSS Grades 2-6 and equivalent
  • 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.

Further information and the 2014 online MSAP application form (including applicant and supervisor components) can be found at: http://msap.ucr.edu/.

The cost for the program is $1,095 (including all program materials and room and board for three days and two nights), payable through departmental recharge or personal check to CHR. Completed applications must be submitted online by July 18, 2014. For more information, contact Julia Sanchez at juliasanchez@chr.ucla.edu or (310) 794-0853.

Sincerely,

Lubbe Levin
