Since Bob Nagy, Associate Professor in the Cofrin School of Business, introduced a new e-textbook format for his Risk Management & Insurance course, his students have saved approximately $3400. According to provider, Flat World Knowledge , this new textbook format helps to reduce the high cost of textbooks, and allow faculty and students to choose the format to uniquely match the content and learning styles. Great job, Bob!

UW-Green Bay’s Sampath Ranganathan is one of forty local individuals graduating from the Leadership Green Bay class of 2012 as a strong leader and contributing community member on Tuesday, May 8.
Leadership Green Bay is a community development program of the Chamber of Commerce which provides a formalized training program for up to 40 area participants who meet one day per month, September through May, to discuss pertinent area issues, including the economy, heritage, cultural awareness, human services, government, and history. Participants organize into small groups to complete service projects designed to enhance awareness of methods to effect change, improve team skills, and make a positive difference in the community.
Assistant Professor Ranganathan was a member of the service group that made major improvements to the Ruth Helf Family Center by renovating areas inside and outside the center in need of a change. The Ruth Helf Family Center’s Crisis/Respite Program is a joint venture between Encompass Early Education and Care, Inc. and the Brown County Department of Human Services. This center is used by families involved with the Child Protection and Foster Care Units of the Brown County Department of Human Services.
Congratulations Sampath, and thank you for your service to the community!

UWGB Accounting students have been reaching out to lend a helping hand to the community through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program. Through VITA, a program sponsored by the IRS, UWGB students have been helping lower income taxpayers and fellow students prepare their income tax returns. The students are helping with taxes at one of several locations in the Green Bay area. They are getting hands-on experience in dealing with clients and applying principles learned in the classroom to real life situations. In addition, students are gaining a great sense of satisfaction from having provided a valuable service to the community and the taxpayers they have assisted. Contact faculty member, Jim Loebl, for more information.
