Each semester, five supervisors will be selected to begin this program.

Approximately $300-$400 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:
