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)
