The Amherst College Supervisory Forum is an initiative of the Office of Human Resources.  The purpose is to provide Supervisors and Managers a space for open discussion of issues affecting our work environment. The goals are:

  • To increase our understanding of the College’s policies, procedures and customary practices.
  • To ensure a fair and consistent application of such policies, procedures and customary practices.
  • To share best practices in the management of issues affecting our departments.
  • To discuss our concerns, views and perspectives, with the aim to build a common mission and vision.
  • To strengthen our peer relationships and establish mutually beneficial collaborations.
  • To continually develop our supervisory and leadership skills.

The agenda for each forum is created to address topics of current interest. Human Resources welcomes suggestions about topics or issues to be presented and discussed in future sessions.
