Who Should Attend
All university supervisors, or aspiring supervisors, can benefit and are encouraged to attend this program. A broad mix of experience levels contributes to the dynamic learning environment that makes this program valuable for all participants. Foundations of Leadership is particularly helpful to supervisors with less than 5 years’ experience.

How it Works
To earn a certificate of completion, participants need to complete all 6 courses. Courses can be taken individually, but it is highly-recommended that participants take all 6 courses in order as the relationships that are developed are an integral part of the learning experience.

Cost
Learning fee is $50 for each student per course, or $300 to earn a certificate for all 6 courses. NEW CANCELLATION/NO SHOW POLICY: If you need to cancel, please do so by 9am two business days before the session. Not doing so or ‘no showing’ will result in a $25 administration fee charged to the noted KFS account.

How to Register
All active courses are on the university’s training website: training.umd.edu. You will need your approving supervisor’s name and KFS # to complete the registration.
