Programs and Curriculum Offered

Leadership Training
DOI University’s Leadership Programs provide a planned, systematic, competency-based approach to developing future leaders, at all levels, for the Department of the Interior. At each level of leadership development, an emphasis is placed on individual development of core competencies within the context of the Department’s mission, vision, and critical leadership needs.

DOI’s Senior Executive Service Candidate Development Program (SESCDP) is an OPM-approved training program designed to develop the executive qualifications of employees with strong executive potential. The SESCDP is based on the five Executive Core Qualifications (ECQ) that embody the leadership skills needed to succeed in the SES. These skills apply to all SES positions and are in addition to the technical qualifications that may be required in for a specific job.

DOI Supervisory Program
Supervisors are the department’s link between our successes transforming strategy into execution and a key factor in our employee satisfaction. To prepare our new and existing supervisors for the demands of their role, the DOI Supervisory Program includes OPM and OMB aligned supervisory development offerings for non-managers and aspiring supervisors, new supervisors, and highly experienced supervisors.
