Congratulations on becoming a new manager!

A key characteristic of effective leaders is the willingness to learn and grow in their own professional development. With this in mind, we recommend the learning opportunities curated specifically for our first-time managers. When completed, these provide a comprehensive foundation designed to support you as you lead and manage others particularly in your first 6-12 months. New managers with direct reports in all divisions and colleges, are encourage to participate.

Manager Foundations provides learning, information, and resources to educate managers about RIT human resources, legal, employment, diversity and risk management processes, policies, procedures and practices.

A Manager Foundations Certificate is awarded to those who complete any five sessions within a 12-month period. Managers are encouraged to retake the following sessions every 2 years due to the changing nature of the content: Employment Law Overview and Student Employment 101: Hiring and Supervising Student Employees.
