SUBJECT: UC Management Skills Assessment Program
The Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP) is a highly-effective Universitywide management development program open to entry-level managers, first-line supervisors, and professional support staff (PSS) at the ___Assistant III level and above.
The program is based on extensive research in the fields of management and organizational behavior, is comparable to programs available elsewhere at a much higher cost, and provides a valuable learning experience for employees.
The next Management Skills Assessment Program occurs April 29 - May 2, 2003 with an application deadline of February 4.
The program is held at the UCLA Conference Center at Lake Arrowhead. The program fee for assessees is $795.00, and 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 Staff Education and Development division of the Human Resources Department coordinates the program. An assessee application form follows. Please print out the application form and make copies as necessary.
Campus managers at the equivalent of 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.
I encourage you to give careful consideration to the Management Skills Assessment Program as it is a valuable resource for University employees.
Please contact Staff Education and Development at extension 44890 if you need additional information.
