FUTURE OF HIGHER EDUCATION

UW-Whitewater, along with all higher education institutions in Wisconsin and the U.S., is faced with new challenges that impact our work as campus staff. Public support is declining, expectations for trained graduates are increasing, and society's perceptions of higher education have shifted.  This is scheduled for Tuesday, February 10, 2015 from 2:00 - 3:00 pm in UC 261.  For more information, click here.

Supervisor Training Sessions

New this semester is a series of training sessions  designed to help those staff who hire and/or supervise student employees.  We encourage those interested to register in advance at http://my.uww.edu.  The Student Employee Supervisor Training sessions will be found within the Career & Leadership Development offerings.  Each session is offered two times.  Feel free to attend one or more of the topics.  For more information, click here.
