Introduction to Supervision

Overview

This program is mandated by the State of Kansas and Kansas State University for all university support staff supervisory personnel. It is to be completed within six months of the original appointment. Newly appointed supervisors must complete a minimum of fifteen hours of supervisory training to be certified and appointed to "regular" status.

Those enrolled in Introduction to Supervision should be full-time employees of the State of Kansas and currently supervising university support staff. Faculty and unclassified staff who supervise are also welcome.

The series provides new supervisors with practical leadership skills and an increased awareness of university policies and procedures.
