Training Opportunities

We offer a comprehensive catalog covering a wide-range of topics for professional and leadership skill development. See below for details on our multi-level programs including the ASP for people managers, recommended training opportunities through Bridge, and LinkedIn Learning courses for continuous professional growth. Stay tuned for upcoming training announcements as we continuously expand our course selections!

The AccoUNTable Supervisor Program is currently available for UNT employees only.  However, the program will be coming soon for employees at all instiutions across the enterprise. 

Enrollment Requirements


To enroll in this program, you must review the program catalog and complete the application form completely. You can find this application form at the following link: APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED FOR SPRING. Note that this form requires you to obtain supervisor approval before it will be considered complete. The cohort will include 40 members and we will retain a waitlist (cohorts run once each long semester). 

Those selected for the program will receive a direct e-mail. By completing this form, you are verifying that you have read the asp program catalog in its entirety (including the required in-person program dates) and you have received supervisor approval to participate fully in the program. You will be held accountable for all requirements and dates listed within the program catalog. These requirements will NOT be reviewed again within any individual session, so please review carefully.

Program Dates are from 2 - 4 PM on the following:  February 13th, February 29th, March 21st, April10th, and April 30th

Please note: Participation in New Supervisor Orientation (our existing UNT System-partnered, training and development program directed toward new supervisors) is not required in order to participate in the AccoUNTable Supervisor Program, though it would be preferable that newly hired supervisors complete New Supervisor Orientation first. E-mail for more information on that program.

Statement from the President

Dear UNT Supervisors,

Welcome to the AccoUNTable Supervisor Program! We created this program to positively support one of our most critical assets — our UNT supervisor community — as we work toward creating a workplace that better meets the needs of our rapidly expanding organization.

Through this program, you’ll receive learning and networking experiences related to people-first leading, and will develop supervisory skills that have a direct impact on our employees, students, and the university. The Cabinet and I are fully committed to allowing our community of supervisors the time and support necessary to complete this program.

Your commitment to creating an engaged workforce is greatly appreciated. We value the pledge you are taking to complete the Core 5 learning sessions as well as the continued quarterly education and learning that designates you an AccoUNTable Supervisor.

Thank you for your part in shaping a brighter future for yourself and for those that you lead.

UNT Proud,

Signature of the President

Neal Smatresk, President

Program Overview

A vital contributor to UNT’s success lies in the teamwork and the relationships between supervisors and employees. This dynamic can have a substantial impact on job engagement, individual and team performance, satisfaction, and retention.  This program will provide crucial learning and networking to all levels of supervisors as it pertains to people-first leading within the culture and context of UNT. The intended outcome of this program is to continually develop supervisory skills that have a positive impact on our employees, students, the university, and the greater community. Those who commit to this program and its requirements enjoy the honor of calling themselves a UNT “Accountable Supervisor”.

Program Objectives:

  • Provide supervisors with focused and critical skills applicable to any level, expertise, or tenure.
  • Encourage the ongoing learning and development of UNT’s supervisor population.
  • Create a community of supervisors for networking, connection, and shared learning.

The participant's supervisor and the participant commit to the time involved for the employee to participate in the program. This will be eleven hours (11) in-person initially (within a cohort) plus eight additional hours (8) each year. Dates for the cohort sessions are found within the program catalog.

The participant's supervisor will champion their participation. The participant's supervisor will provide coaching to their employee (the participant) on what they are learning in the program.

As such, the participant must share with their supervisor the coaching tip sheet. This sheet will provide a list of all the session topics and helpful coaching questions to help build dialogue between the participant and their direct supervisor.


If you would like clarification on the AccoUNTable Supervisor Program and its requirements, please contact Human Resources at (ref/attention: AccoUNTable Supervisor Program Administrator).
