What new managers want

A recent survey of OCASA members that are newer to college administration returned 30 responses. OCASA plans on incorporating these responses into Conference workshop planning and online resources/webinars.

Representing managers across college divisions, newer managers are clear about their professional development needs (in order of preference):

  1. strategic planning
  2. budgeting/finance
  3. conflict resolution
  4. navigating a college career

They also indicated a desire for a professional development day with other newer administrators.

A full survey summary will be available shortly.
