The University of Wisconsin-River Falls will present a scenic trip of the St. Croix River combined with a series of seminars designed for school district administrators.

Experts in their fields will address specialty topics of value to school district administrators in a three-part series while aboard the St. Croix River Showboat, the "Majestic Lady" on June 18, July 23 and Oct. 8. The topics for the seminars include:

  • "The Effective Organization: Coordination and Communication," instructed by UW-RF Professor Suzanne Hagen on June 18. Hagen specializes in organization, small group and intercultural communication. She has consulted with numerous organizations, including 3M, Cargill, Honeywell and Control Data Corp.
  • "Authentic Leadership for Authentic Action," instructed by Robert Terry, Ph.D, on July 23. Terry is president of the Terry Group, and will present his well-known "Action Wheel" that enables participants to analyze leadership styles, understand power dynamics, and build a leadership philosophy.
  • "Playing Fair to Ensure Fair Play," instructed by attorney and UW-RF affirmative action officer Glenda Morris, on Oct.8. Morris will present an overview of Title IX and Title VII principles and regulations using a practical case study approach. There will be a focus on gender equity, and athletics.

  • At each seminar, a continental breakfast will be served on the showboat docked in Stillwater, Minn., followed by a 2-3 hour seminar.

    After the seminar, the group will cruise the St. Croix River aboard the Majestic Lady, network with fellow administrators and enjoy a "paddle boat style" luncheon.

    On the seminar dates, registration is from 8-8:30 a.m. and the seminar and luncheon cruise are from 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

    The UW-RF Continuing Education Extension Department encourages registration for all three seminars; however, individual seminar registration is available.

    One graduate credit is available through UW-River Falls for participation in all three seminars. The grade for the series will be posted as a Fall 1996-97 Semester grade.

    The fee for the entire series is $200 and includes three continental breakfasts, three lunch cruises and materials. This price does not include graduate tuition or textbook, if required.

    The fee for two sessions is $80, and for an individual session the fee is $90. Registration for individual seminars must be received two weeks prior to the presentation date.

    Registration for the entire three-part series must be received before June 4. For more information, contact Judie Caflisch at 800/228-5607 or by e-mail "judith.e.caflisch@uwrf.edu".
