Seniors Sara Bruesewitz and Maddie Ganzlin are completing Honors Projects in advanced program evaluation methods. The two are assisting the Appleton Public Library’s Friends foundation in running 8 focus groups of Appleton-area residents, hoping to learn what citizens think that their library should be like in the future. Sara and Maddie are also working with teams of students in Dr. Lora Warner’s Program Evaluation class to develop outcome measures for local agencies such as Brown County Drug Court, Golden House, and NEW Curative.
Our wonderful colleague and award-winning professor emerita, Denise Scheberle, was just awarded one of the top teaching honors in Political Science.

During December and May graduation ceremonies participating students are greeted by Green Pledge posters they can sign. Part of the national movement, “Green Pledge” states that UWGB graduates will consider environmental and social justice aspects in their lives and future jobs. You can recognize a signee by the green ribbon he or she is wearing at the graduation ceremony. This is the fourth year our unit is sponsoring the Green Pledge, which has become our proud tradition!
