Supervisory Competencies

The Building Core Supervisory Competencies program emphasizes participation and practice of supervisory skills through the use of self-assessment inventories, case studies, homework assignments and small group exercises.

What is it

This comprehensive program begins with an orientation for participants. Participants then complete 6 core courses and a variety of electives, followed by a wrap-up session and graduation celebration. 

Courses offer skills and techniques that help supervisors develop their leadership skills, helping them successfully manage and develop their teams. An optional assignment will be offered for those who want to gain the most benefit from the program. On-the-job follow-up activities which involve both the supervisor and the participant will be provided to assist in reinforcing new skills.

Building Core Supervisory Competencies - what are people saying image
 “The leadership qualities I was able to gain and develop, inform all of my decisions and have truly changed me as a leader and a person. I highly recommend this program to those who would like to develop different leadership perspectives and make meaningful connections with cross campus partners.”  “This has truly strengthened me as a leader and has contributed greatly to what I have to offer my department and the campus. I am incredibly grateful for the experience and colleagues I have been able to connect with and learn from.”

 “We each walked away with tangible skills that we’re putting to practice in our offices, and also a wider network of collaborators, committed to fostering professional development and promoting diversity and inclusion across UC Riverside.

 “Not only did the trainings give me insight and tools to what it takes to be a competent supervisor, but I also learned much about UCR that I did not know – in spite of being on campus for more than 15 years.
