SUBJECT: University of California Management Skills Assessment
The Management Skills Assessment Program is a highly effective management development program open to entry-level managers, first-line supervisors, and professional staff at the ___ Assistant III level and above at all campuses of the university.
This program provides a valuable learning experience for employees. The program is based on extensive research in the fields of management and organizational behavior, and is comparable to programs available elsewhere at a much higher cost.
Two sessions of the Management Skills Assessment Program are available to UCSD personnel: October 12-15, 1999; and May 2-5, 2000. Both sessions are held at the UC Conference Center at Lake Arrowhead. The program fee for assessees is $667.00. The fee covers tuition and room and board for four days and three nights. Staff Education and Development may be able to provide some Staff Affirmative Action funding to assist with the program fee for those accepted as assessees.
The campus Staff Education and Development division of the Human Resources Department coordinates the program for the campus. All applications are reviewed by a committee which selects UCSD's participants. An assessee application form follows. Please print out the application form and reproduce copies as necessary.
Campus managers at the equivalent of the Senior Analyst level or above who are interested in participating as an assessor in the Management Skills Assessment Program may obtain an application by contacting Linda Veliz, MSAP Coordinator, Staff Education and Development, at extension 44890. Managers who attend as assessors pay no fee.
Applications for the October session must be received no later than September 3, 1999. The deadline date to submit applications for the May session is March 3, 2000.
I encourage you to give careful consideration to the Management Skills Assessment Program as it is a valuable resource for university employees.
A brochure describing the program in more detail is available through Staff Education and Development. Please contact Staff Education and Development at extension 44890 if you need additional information.
