Fundamentals of Supervision

The Fundamentals of Supervision (the FUS) is a cohort specifically designed for aspiring and recently appointed individuals in supervisory positions at MC.  In addition to examining the essential skills and knowledge required of supervisors, the FUS seeks to guide MC employees through the complex landscape of modern supervision, where change, tradition, and innovation are always in play.

The FUS imparts knowledge of and experience with core skills cited as critical in first-line supervisory jobs at MC. The FUS is structured on the tri-pronged management approach used at Montgomery College: managing yourself, managing others, and navigating the system.

Classes are a combination of virtual and in-person sessions.

The first step to admission to the cohort is to submit an application which requires supervisory approval. The FuS is open to all MC employees—faculty, staff, and administrators. The first class is on November 8, 2023, and ends with a final class that involves Project Presentations and a graduation event on June 13, 2024.

The application deadline is November 6, 2023.
