At times, supervisors come into positions having already developed strong skills through formal education or experience. At the University of Kentucky, opportunities are provided for a supervisor to add to previously acquired skills and knowledge. SuperVision is a training program designed by HR Training & Development especially to equip supervisors with the skills and knowledge to manage people and function effectively. It is the most comprehensive, work-oriented supervisory training program ever offered at the University. Goals

  • To develop a staff of highly skilled and competent supervisors who understand and manage human and capital resources in a strategic rather than reactive fashion.
  • To assist supervisors in the recognition and proper application of University policies and procedures.
  • To provide supervisors with some of the basic supervisory skills in order to build more confident and self-motivated employees.
  • To contribute to the University's overall mission of providing excellent instruction, modern research, and meaningful service.
