Enroll in the Emerging Supervisor Pathway

The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering has partnered with ASU’s Emerging Supervisor Pathway, or ESP, program to continue to bring a unique leadership development experience to our future supervisors.

ESP is a self-paced, semester-long training for employees aspiring to become supervisors with no prior supervisory experience and those with limited experience.

How it works:

This training contains 20 hours of mixed media, including live courses of ASU and materials, toolkits, and an in-person 6-hour capstone session held at Tempe UCNTRA.

Participants are provided with all of the required learning materials and tools. Our goal is to provide foundational knowledge of ASU for aspiring supervisors to prepare them before promotion. Completing this training is equivalent to 1-year supervisory experience for promotional opportunities at ASU.

Application submission process:

  1. Applicants must submit an essay (no more than 250 words) to their supervisor indicating their professional goals, why they want to supervise others, and what they hope to learn from participation.
  2. Supervisors must approve participation in the training.
  3. After gaining supervisor approval, applicants will submit a completed application form through QuestionPro.

Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Any applicant submitting an application after the maximum occupancy has been reached will be placed on an interest list and notified when the next training series begins.
