“I love working in the American Intercultural Center because of the staff, students, and all of the doors they open. They make me feel grounded in the University and like I belong somewhere. I am so happy to have the chance to reflect that back and help them as much as they help me!”-Camara Wallace
“I love working in the American Intercultural Center because the students and staff are amazing! Working in the AIC has helped me become aware of all the wonderful resources and fun events available at UWGB!” – Tina Vang
“I enjoy working here because of the students and staff here. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. This job has really helped me become accustomed at UWGB.” – Ntxhee Yee Thao
“ I love working in the American Intercultural Center because of all the people that are there. The staff and students here are wonderful people and I wouldn’t trade them for anyone else but Beyoncé. They had really made my first year here at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay a lot better than I have expected.” – Bao Nhia Xiong
“The event isn’t intended to criticize the police or their efforts. It’s to ask questions and help more people understand what our community is doing to continue to make sure these events don’t happen in Green Bay. I expect that students will share their perceptions of the local police and public safety. Some of their questions could be direct and even pointed, but it’s my view that we won’t be able to move forward with our overall mission if people just want to criticize and blame.” -Dr. Justin Mallet
