  • Travis Hicks, Career Center
  • Martika Jacobs, UNT TRIO
  • Sara Tarango, Residence Life

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.

“You are an important part of what goes on at UNT,” said Bob Brown, senior vice president for finance and administration, upon addressing the graduates. “Thank you for your good work and congratulations to all of you.”

Since the program’s creation in 2015, there have been 330 graduates across the UNT System. There are currently 260 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.​
