Transitioning Your Leadership Certificate

Are you a graduating student? Are you wondering how to apply your student experiences to post-college life?

Transitioning Your Leadership targets students who applied for 2018 spring graduation.  Through this program students are given various opportunities to reflect upon their involvement experiences at UWM, creating an awareness of their learning that occurred outside of the classroom and how it applies to life after college.

What participants will gain through the program:

  • Certificate of completion and optional letter of recommendation
  • Feedback on your resume and cover letter
  • An understanding of what leadership means to you
  • Awareness of the skills you gained through your involvements and how they apply to life after UWM
  • Information on how to market your experiences to employers and graduate programs
What do past participants have to say about the program?
The program was a wonderful opportunity. I had the chance to reflect on my higher education, discover new strengths about myself, gain feedback on my resume from administrative professionals, and collaborate with other students.
The program gave me a chance to reflect on my education, polish my resume, and prepare myself to be a leader beyond graduation.
I gained a lot of insight on who I am as a leader. This allowed me to reflect to see what different qualities I can change or add to become an even better leader for the communities I want to serve.
