UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary Miller e-mailed the following message to faculty and staff on Friday, January 20, 2016.
Each and every time students, parents, visitors, board members or donors attend an event at UW-Green Bay, they should feel special and walk away with a sense of Phoenix pride. We want all events at UW-Green Bay to be special and memorable.
In the coming months, personnel from the Office of the Chancellor will be working diligently to align University events with campus priorities to best honor and thank the campus community. The list includes some changes to long-standing University events.
Our annual Faculty and Staff Cookout in May 2017 will now be the event where we will honor:
- Years of Service
- New UW-Green Bay Retirees
- Employment Anniversaries
- Faculty and Staff Emeriti
We believe this gives the campus community and close friends and family the best opportunity to celebrate these important milestones together.
In August of 2017, during Fall Convocation, we will continue to:
- Welcome New Employees
- Honor Named Professorships
- Announce Founders Awards
- Honor Endowed Chairs
Georgia and I look forward to celebrating these honors and milestones with all of you. Watch the Log for additional details as these events draw near.
Gary L. Miller
