The partial widths of W and Z decays to supersymmetric particles are evaluated in the simplest N=1 supergravity model. The total widths can be 50% greater than the standard-model predictions. Measurements of the widths at the p̄p collider can thereby be used either to place improved lower limits on gaugino, scalar-quark, and scalar-lepton masses or to provide indirect evidence for supersymmetry.
