UW-Green Bay Professor Ellen Rosewall is the author of the new textbook Arts Management: Uniting Arts and Audiences in the 21st Century, released this month by Oxford University Press, USA. Rosewall says the book is one of only a few, if any, comprehensive textbooks on arts management written for undergraduates. Arts Management includes case studies and critical-thinking exercises that address today’s environment for the visual and performing arts. Topics range from governance and human resources to program development, financial management, marketing, fundraising, educational outreach and more.
The University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents committee OK’d nearly $1.9 million in new grant funding for the new collaborative engineering technology degrees on Friday, Nov. 1, 2013. The funds will help jump-start a trio of new and collaborative engineering technology degrees. Students in the program will be able to begin their academic studies at any one of 13 Northeastern Wisconsin Educational Resource Alliance (NEW ERA) universities and colleges, and finish the program at either UW-Green Bay or UW-Oshkosh. The program offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Electrical Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology and Environmental Engineering Technology through collaboration between the NEW ERA institutions, colleges and an array of business partners.
