UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary L. Miller sent the following message via e-mail to employees on Monday, October 20, 2014:
I want to draw your attention to two dates important to our veteran students and their families.
On Wednesday, October 22 an important session will be held for faculty and staff in the Christie Theatre. The event will be an orientation to promote understanding about the military culture, increase awareness about common psychological and physical conditions among Veterans; address faculty, staff and student concerns and provide helpful resources. A panel of student veterans will present their stories and lead a discussion about the lives of veterans.
I encourage you to attend this session. Veterans and their dependents are an important part of our university community. Their special experiences bring a unique dimension to the classroom and to campus life. This event, and others during the week, will help us benefit from their experiences.
The week of November 10 – 15 is Veterans Appreciation Week at UWGB. The over 400 veterans and dependents who attend UWGB are working with staff to plan a number of activities to educate the community about the contributions of veterans and their educational needs.
Gary L. Miller
