Enterprise CarShare Drives on to Campus this Fall

12_CarShare_rgb

Being introduced to incoming students and their parents at FOCUS this year, but also available to all students, faculty and staff is the opportunity to join Enterprise CarShare. Two cars will be available in the Main Housing parking lot in late August for hourly, daily and overnight rental. Supported by the campus Sustainability Committee, the program is being offered as an alternative transportation option to encourage students who may only need to use a car every once in a while to leave their car at home and it also provide options to students who don’t have a car, as well as to faculty/staff who may need a car for a quick trip in town.

In order to participate you must become a member of the program. Note that this is a personal membership and for personal use. A yearly membership fee is charged, along with hourly rental charges. Enterprise is currently running a promotional program that allow you to join for $10 and receive $35 in driving credits (expires 8/1/14). Use Promo code:  CAMPUS2014. All the details of how the program works can be found at:   http://www.enterprisecarshare.com/car-sharing/program/uwgb . Enterprise will also be funding a paid student internship position beginning in the Fall to help market the program and maintain the cars.

Welcome to Chancellor-designate Dr. Gary Miller!

View of Earth From Space

On Monday, June 2, it was announced that Dr. Gary Miller would become the next Chancellor of the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay. Dr. Miller brings an ecologist’s mindset to the University which means a great ability to apply systems thinking to a complex organization. In initial interviews with the media, Dr. Miller has expressed that UWGB’s strong environmental and sustainability efforts were very attractive to him and his wife, Georgia, as they contemplated making the move to Green Bay. We look forward to working with Dr. Miller in revisioning and revitalizing an already strong environmental perspective to more deeply embed sustainability into the operating culture and the classroom instruction at UWGB.

Welcome Dr. and Mrs. Miller!
