Cat Island Grant Funds Two Graduate Students!

Please congratulate grad students Brianna Kupsky and Tom Prestby and faculty members Matt Dornbush, Patrick Robinson, Bob Howe, and Amy Wolf for a $225,000 federal USFWS grant to UW-Green Bay and Ducks Unlimited for the restoration of aquatic vegetation and aquatic waterfowl habit in the reconstructed Cat Island area.

There are some important changes within the ES&P program.

  • A “design your own program” emphasis has been added that provides students the flexibility to develop the individual skillsets needed to pursue unique or emerging fields within the broader area of environmental science and policy.
  • There is no longer a need to separately apply for assistantships. All students accepted into the program are eligible and will be automatically considered for all available assistantships
  • New students should note important changes in the curriculum. See the 2014-2015 Graduate Catalog for more information.
