Last year nearly 80 senior academic leaders, administrators and managers from across Canada gathered in Winnipeg from June 10 to 15, 2018 for CHERD’s Senior University Administrators Course (SUAC) and University Management Course (UMC) . Offering programs in Winnipeg, provided a unique opportunity for joint sessions with expert guest speakers. Building on this model, the 2019 Flagship Programs will again be offered at the same time and same place. Join us for a week of exceptional Higher Education Professional Development in Winnipeg.
University Management Course (UMC)
UMC is a five-day residential program for administrators and managers in both academic and administrative areas of the higher education system including department heads, directors, managers, and senior executive assistants.
Offered by the Centre for Higher Education Research and Development (CHERD) at the University of Manitoba, UMC has served the professional development needs of approximately 1000 managers and administrators. The course provides participants with the skills and knowledge to build and enhance leadership and management skills to manage your work environment more effectively and efficiently in a continually changing higher education environment.
As a national program UMC brings together facilitators and participants from a range of institutions and varying disciplinary and professional backgrounds. Learning together and from each other, UMC provides an opportunity to acquire new knowledge and skills to become more effective managers and administrators in their own institutions.
Universities and colleges are encouraged to nominate individuals for admission, both in academic and professional support positions, who have records of achievement in their work, people who are motivated to enhance their leadership skills and who are interested in the benefits to be obtained from attending a specialized leadership development program.
Applications will be available shortly.
