UCLA Management Enrichment Program

DEANS, DIRECTORS, DEPARTMENT CHAIRS, and ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER

Re: UCLA Management Enrichment Program

Campus Human Resources is pleased to announce the new UCLA Management Enrichment Program (MEP) and requests nominations for participation in this high-level management development program. MEP is designed to provide a framework for enhancing decision-making and leadership skills, particularly in key areas such as strategic planning, financial and human resource management, along with achieving an understanding of the context in which decisions are made at UCLA. A core element of this cohort-based program is the opportunity to strengthen participants’ professional network and introduce high-potential managers to decision makers at UCLA.

Following an initial pilot program in 2016-17, we are delighted that Vice Chancellors Michael Beck and Steven Olsen have agreed to serve as program sponsors. Based on feedback from the inaugural offering, the program has been updated to include additional interactive sessions with senior managers, facilitated panel discussions, and UCLA-relevant case studies. The program will also include individual projects to be identified by participants and designed to meet department objectives by applying the knowledge gained through MEP.

MEP consists of eight half-day sessions between January and May 2018, with a graduation luncheon and certificate presentations at the end of the program.

Nominations will be accepted for managers at MSP Grade 2 and above (or equivalent classifications) who currently hold key roles in either an academic or administrative environment and are interested in further developing their skills. Participation will be limited to 25 attendees, with the expectation that they will attend all sessions. Each session is scheduled to take place on campus. For additional information regarding the program, see Related Information.

In order to apply for MEP, applicants are required to submit an online questionnaire and have their supervisor complete the online nomination form by November 20th.

If you have any questions, please contact Rejeana Mathis, CHR Management Development Manager, at rmathis@chr.ucla.edu for program information.

Sincerely,
 

Lubbe Levin
Associate Vice Chancellor
