New Supervisor Orientation
Are you new to supervising at the University of Alaska?  Or perhaps new to both supervising and the university?  If so, call the Office of Human Resources at 474-7700 and schedule a new supervisor orientation session with your department's HR consultant.  This one-on-one orientation is designed to give new supervisors at the university the tools and resources to begin successfully managing and mentoring their employees.

The orientation can be customized to your needs and can vary in length from 30-90 minutes, depending on the individual.

UAF Supervising for Success

Training program is comprised of 3 modules:
These modules need to be taken in order since modules 2 and 3 build on the information in the previous modules. Classes are taught by UAF HR and EEO personnel along with guest speakers from other UA/UAF departments.
UAF supervisors are required to complete all 3 modules every 3 years. Other UA employees are welcome to attend depending on space availability.
Please go to the UAF Training Calendar to register for any of the trainings. All sessions are at the Wood Center and will accommodate 30 attendees. Once submitted, the session you've registered for will automatically be added to your own Google calendar.
Classes with enrollment of less than eight (8) participants are subject to cancellation at the discretion of the UAF HR training team. Participants will be notified of cancellation by email at least two (2) business days prior to the scheduled day of class. When scheduled classes are cancelled, a spot will be reserved in the next available class for those enrolled in the cancelled class but it is your responsibility to re-enroll in the next available class.
If you have been "wait listed" for a particular session and not added as an attendee, you will have to re-register for a later session. We do not automatically move the "wait listed".
