What does it mean to be “transgender”? How is that the same or different than being “intersex”? Come to the Christie Theatre on Monday, Feb. 24, from 3:30-4:30 pm and learn about the transgender umbrella, how to include transgender students in the classroom and on campus, and how much it means to communicate to someone with their preferred pronoun. Each semester, many students are arriving to campuses who are transgender.
This career development program is co-sponsored by Human Resources, The American Intercultural Center and The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning and will enhance your ability to be aware of what we can do on campus to increase a positive and safe environment for transgender students and employees.
To register please go to: http://uwgreenbay.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_2lfB6nGxNPdaPY1
This will be an excellent opportunity for Faculty and staff to have an opportunity to learn more about our transgender population the challenges they face and how to help them succeed.
Please join us for this great learning event!

University Personnel System (UPS) to be Reviewed by the UW Board of Regents at December 6-7 Meeting
The University Personnel System (UPS) Project has progressed to the approval phase, which means the initial foundation of the new personnel systems will be reviewed by the UW Board of Regents at its December 6th and 7th meeting for approval. The Board of Regents agenda documents include:
- Executive Summary - explains the documents, explains the purpose, and summarizes intent of the Regent Policy Documents.
- Regent Resolutions (4) – three of them introduce Regent Policy Documents (also attached) and one summarizes technical statutory changes necessary for UPS implementation.
- Regent Policy Documents (3) – one to establish with the Board the authority to administer the personnel systems, one to establish University Staff shared governance, and one to establish a single Codes of Ethics for all employees.
If the Board of Regents approves the foundational documents, the next step in the approval phase will be to present the UPS to the Joint Committee on Employment Relations (JCOER). A meeting with JCOER has not been set but a meeting will likely be scheduled during the early part of spring 2013, so that implementation and training can begin well in advance of the July 1, 2013 statutory deadline.
We will communicate any new information as it becomes available. Please contact Sheryl Van Gruensven, Christine Olson or Amy Plotner if you have any questions regarding UPS.
