Tell Me More Signature Program

Tell Me More Signature Program

WELCOA (The Wellness Council of America) recently identified that the need for social connection in the workplace is greater than we realized pre-COVID. Healthy, meaningful relationships are important for our ability to be resilient to stress, which is why we've launched the Tell Me More Signature Program - an opportunity to connect and engage with fellow UNCW employees in a valuable way.

What is it?

This eight-week-long program challenges employees to build new relationships and gain new insight through conducting a series of informational interviews. This self-directed signature program requires participants to select their topics of interest (such as leadership, career exploration, success strategies, well-being and work-life balance, etc.) and identify campus colleagues to interview about these topics.

At the start of the program, participants will gain access to helpful tools and resources, including: 

  • Welcome and instructional video
  • Sample interview questions (click to preview)
  • Online reflection log

How do I get started?

First, take a look at the three program levels below - bronze, silver and gold - and identify which one is most attainable for you. Then, fill out the program application! At the start of the eight-week session, we'll send you an email with an overview of the program, as well as links to the tools and resources listed above.
