Four UNT Division of Student Affairs staff members graduated from the Supervisory Building Blocks certificate program on December 3. The graduates were:

  • Donna Felton – Student Health and Wellness Center
  • Melanie Mitchell – Career Connect
  • Joan Powers – Counseling and Testing Services
  • Rosie Ridgway – Dean of Students Office

The SBB program is designed to strengthen and develop the skills of new and existing supervisors. Sessions address multiple aspects of supervision and provide attendees with an opportunity to learn collaboratively with supervisors from across the campus.

“UNT is a human enterprise, and as supervisors, you have the ability to move our enterprise forward in several ways,” said Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration Bob Brown upon addressing the graduates. “The responsibility of supervisors is to help their employees grow and develop, and the university is committed to helping you do your best.”

Since the program’s creation in 2015, there have been 360 graduates across the UNT System. There are currently 250 UNT System employees enrolled in the program.

Supervisory Building Blocks sessions are currently in rotation at UNT, UNT Dallas and UNT Health Science Center. System supervisors may sign-up and attend sessions at a location most convenient for them. Team members who complete a total of 30 hours of training, including all foundation sessions and six hours of elective sessions, will earn a certificate of achievement.​
