Applications Now Open for Supervisor Training and Education Program

STEP, the Supervisor Training and Education Program, is accepting applications for the new program year. STEP is the university’s program for managers that seek additional career growth. Through an 18-month commitment program participants learn about leadership, employment law, and best practices for managing others. The program culminates with the presentation of a capstone project that the cohort develops.

Program requirements include having at least six months of experience with Illinois Tech and managing at least one direct report. Applicants may self-nominate themselves for STEP, but a completed nomination form, letter of recommendation from their immediate manager, and their vice president or dean is required.

There is no cost to the participant or his/her department to enroll in STEP. Nominations will be accepted November 9 through Wednesday, December 6. Find the STEP nomination form on the HR Portal.
