“Managerial Excellence” anchors the center of the framework and provides a descriptive, aspirational, overarching focal point encompassing specific competency areas.
“Diversity, Equity & Inclusion” (DEI) surrounds Managerial Excellence, signaling the importance and relevance of DEI to all competencies. Applying a diversity, equity, and inclusion lens is critical to demonstrating the skills outlined within each of the five competencies. Competencies supporting this work are aligned with the knowledge, skills, and dispositional effects integrated into the Guidance for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Learning framework developed by the OSU Office of Institutional Diversity.
Five competencies emanate out from the center, each representing a broad set of knowledge, skills, and abilities important to a holistic picture of an effective manager.
Competencies allow for institutional standards and expectations. These are the knowledge, skills, and abilities that OSU managers must develop and refine to effectively manage and lead units. The absence of a skillset symbolizes a significant short fall in that competency area that could put the unit at risk.
