Participants will have three years to complete the program, and can select elective topics that meet their needs and move their careers forward. Each semester, five supervisors will be selected to begin this program.

Approximately $500 in expenses for course materials and other items will be charged to the department. Supervisors are encouraged to discuss the cost with Division Heads/ Area Leaders if funding is a barrier to participation.

To earn the UW-Green Bay Supervisory Leadership Certificate participants must:

• Complete two core courses

• Complete eight one-day elective courses (a two-day elective counts as two one-day electives)

If interested in being considered for this program, please complete the top section of the Interest Form and forward electronically to your supervisor.  Next level supervisors should review and complete their portion of the form, and forward to the Area Leader no later than August 24th.  Forms will be forwarded to the Position Review Committee for consideration, and decisions made on attendees will be communicated to employees and supervisors in early September.

Stick with water today

DrinkWaterMany of the drinks you’ll encounter today contain lots of calories and few, if any, nutrients. Non-diet soft drinks, energy or sports drinks, fancy coffees, and other beverages sweetened with sugar can mean extra pounds over time. In fact, the U.S. Department of Agriculture says people consume about 400 calories per day in beverages. So today, try drinking only water, both with and between meals.

Sticking with zero-calorie water is an easy way to cut calories and get a jump on your weight-management goals. Plus, water is usually an inexpensive option. Drink water from the tap at home—it’s the cheapest way to stay hydrated. When you’re headed out and about, fill a water bottle and toss it into your bag or backpack. You can refill it throughout the day. Bonus: You’ll help the environment by reducing waste.
