Managing at Yale

Achieving Higher Performance

“A more unified Yale, a more accessible Yale, a more innovative Yale, and a more excellent Yale.”- President Peter Salovey, 2013

At Yale, our employees are our greatest assets and their development is a top priority. To reinforce this commitment, the University offers Managing at Yale to provide managers of staff, at all levels, with the knowledge and resources they need to successfully lead and develop others.

Managing at Yale, however, is more than a training curriculum — it sets in motion the fundamentals needed to help transform Yale’s culture. Through interactive and engaging presentations and real-life scenarios, Yale managers learn about labor relations, diversity and inclusiveness, and much more.

When managers complete one of the three core Managing at Yale development programs, they will feel empowered to effectively demonstrate key leadership expectations and manager accountabilities. For more information about these programs, click on the following course titles:
