Save the Date – UW-Green Bay Day at Lambeau Field

We’re celebrating all things UW-Green Bay with our partner, the Green Bay Packers! Come out to Lambeau Field on Saturday, November 15 to check out what’s new at your alma mater and then attend an afternoon Green Bay men’s basketball game at the Resch. There will be plenty of fun to keep you and your family busy and it’s free! Watch for updates at www.uwgb.edu/alumni.

UW-Green Bay is the Higher Ed Partner of the Green Bay Packers!

After decades of sharing a community, a name and a reputation for excellence, UW-Green Bay and the Green Bay Packers will be sharing much more this year through a new partnership forged between Outreach and Adult Access and the Packers organization. The partnership provides access to advertising opportunities with the Packers in both print and online media, and grants the University far-reaching access to the team’s logos and team marks. “This new partnership represents a tremendous opportunity for Outreach, the Adult Degree Program, and the entire University to more fully connect with the Green Bay community and to get the word out to adult and distance learners about learning opportunities at UW-Green Bay,” says Steve VandenAvond, Associate Provost for Outreach and Adult Access. Officials say the power of the Packers’ internationally known (and well-regarded) brand has long been a positive for the city and its major institutions including UW-Green Bay, and the new partnership invites the University to be more strategic and direct in capitalizing on that name recognition.’
