This is an exciting time for UW-Green Bay, with many changes that have taken place over the summer and more that are upcoming. Most notably, the university undertook a major restructuring of its current “two colleges” model. As of July 1, all academic majors became aligned in FOUR distinct colleges. The four divisions will be: The College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; the College of Science and Technology; the College of Health, Education and Social Welfare; and the Austin E. Cofrin School of Business. This new organizational structure will not only allow UW-Green Bay to better serve its students, but will also position the university for future growth and help with our ability to be more responsive to state and regional needs.
So… How does this change impact the Adult Degree Program and – more specifically – you? The most important thing to know from all of this change is that the Integrative Leadership Studies major that you are pursuing, the academic advising that you receive and the services available to you are all the same. Your path to your degree remains completely unchanged. However, while the degree and the services supporting it are undisturbed, the “Adult Degree Program” as a self-supporting entity will no longer exist. The ILS degree and all support services will simply be delivered out of different areas of the university.
For many of you, this may seem like a big change. For others, you may be brand new and have not attended UW-Green Bay under the “old” model. Regardless of whether you are in your last semester or first, you chose wisely when you decided to come to UW-Green Bay to pursue your degree online. Our amazing faculty and outstanding advisors and staff are here to support you in that goal of finishing that degree – online and on your time!
Please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Marketing and University Communication if you have questions on any of the changes described here. You can also contact your advisor anytime!
Have a great semester!
