UC Management Development Program
Campus Human Resources is pleased to announce the 2016 UC Management Development Program and requests nominees for participation in this high-profile development opportunity. This engaging systemwide training program is designed to enhance and strengthen leadership capabilities in core management competencies and ensure managers have the skills, knowledge and resources to effectively lead, engage and develop staff.
The University of California Office of the President (UCOP) commissioned industry leaders in talent management and leadership development to create a dynamic program that is relevant to the demands facing University managers. Based on the input of past participants and review of emerging organizational needs, further improvements have been made to the program. Two prestigious leadership development organizations were tapped to provide updated modules and the remaining content was revised to facilitate additional real-world application. Attendees will participate in work-group discussions relevant to the UC context, including practical application and action planning.
