What is your personal vision for a more diverse UW-Green Bay?

Filed under: Campus Question, Conversations | by Office of the Chancellor | October 13, 2010

Reflecting on our history, are there achievements in this regard or, conversely, opportunities missed that can constructively inform our efforts moving forward? UW-Green Bay is joining UW System institutions statewide in making a priority of “Inclusive Excellence,” a new approach that broadens the definition of diversity and celebrates the educational value of bridging various differences.

‘Quick Fixes’ make difference

Filed under: Conversations, Noteworthy | by Office of the Chancellor | October 12, 2010

When we solicited suggestions from the UW-Green Bay community one year ago for simple steps to make the campus a better place, the collective response was impressive. Faculty and staff members generated more than 110 ideas for easy ways to boost morale, extend services, improve our policies and generally make life here more pleasant. Some […]

With the semester well under way, I’d like to take a moment to update the readers of this newsletter on what to expect this year at UW-Green Bay. As I said to faculty and staff at our annual kickoff breakfast, despite lean times and what I view as a broken system of funding for American […]

Greetings… and gratitude

Filed under: Conversations, Greeting | by Office of the Chancellor | October 12, 2010

Greetings! UW-Green Bay enters the new school year on a flurry of positive headlines — record ACTs for our new freshmen, record minority enrollment, and major grants for our faculty— but I’ll pinpoint two other recent events because they illustrate the unique nature of a University community. On Sept. 8 we formally opened our new […]

Rich Spangenberg on the Phoenix

Filed under: Your View | by Office of the Chancellor | February 12, 2010

“I like the Phoenix as the UW-Green Bay mascot. I think it fits. In the fall of the year, when the students come back the campus is rejuvenated. With each athletics team, each year the seniors leave and the new freshmen come in, so the team is reborn.” -Rich Spangenberg, Class of 1971

Christopher Sampson on the Phoenix

Filed under: Your View | by Office of the Chancellor | February 12, 2010

“I think it’s interesting that 40 years ago we were the first school in the country to choose the Phoenix as a nickname. The singular mascot — only one phoenix lives at a time, according to mythology — was also unusual, but the idea was to symbolize the closeness of the team, university and community. […]

The University is beginning a strategic planning process (see reverse panel) and invites you to contribute your ideas and observations. The strategic planning themes that result will help guide […]

Strategic planning will involve campus, community, you

Filed under: Topic A | by Office of the Chancellor | February 12, 2010

Let’s be clear: It’s not that we don’t have an idea of where we’re headed. We do. This institution has many capable people who, collectively, have done much to advance the University over many years. We have any number of strategic initiatives and focused plans — the facilities master plan, the growth agenda, academic plans […]

Greetings and welcome

Filed under: Greeting | by Office of the Chancellor | February 12, 2010

“Conversations” is a publication we’ll share periodically with faculty, staff and community supporters of UW-Green Bay. The name “Conversations” conveys my intent, as I don’t want this to be a one-way communication from the chancellor’s office. I do want this to be a vehicle to solicit opinions and encourage your involvement. I have been very […]
