Supervisory Excellence Program

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How can I find out how many Supervisory Excellence courses I have taken?

Email Training & Development (training@uga.edu) and request a list of your completed Supervisory Excellence courses.

 

Can I take the Supervisory Fundamentals program or the UGA Supervisors' Academy if I am not currently a supervisor?

No. Additional programming and resources will be rolled out in 2018 for employees who do not currently hold a supervisory role but wish to gain supervisory skills.

 

What courses can I take if I am not currently a supervisor?

Check out the Career Development Series, High Impact Leadership, and other UGA certificate programs.  Also, stay tuned for additional programming and resources that will be rolled out in late 2018 for employees who do not currently hold a supervisory role but wish to gain supervisory skills.

 

I was taking SEP courses prior to October 2017. Can I still complete the Certificate in Supervisory Excellence under the previous guidelines?  

Maybe.

If you are not a supervisor and...

  • completed both core classes under the old guidelines, then yes. Contact training@uga.edu for instructions about courses to complete and then complete the capstone case study to earn the certificate.  You will not be required to take the Fundamentals program.
