Manager Training

​​​​​We encourage all faculty and staff who manage student employees to participate in OSE training sessions. These trainings bring managers together to discuss the most effective ways of managing students. The classes present an engaging atmosphere that encourages managers to share successes as well as challenges they have encountered when managing student employees.​​

We have partnered with Workplace Learning Performance and Organizational Development to offer the Manager Certification Program. Managers are required to complete seven classes—all four core classes and any three electives—within the program to achieve certification. The certification is an important step for you to develop managerial practices.
