Subject: Response to Recent Faculty Senate Action
UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary L. Miller e-mailed the following message to faculty and staff on Monday, May 2, 2016:
Dear Faculty and Staff Colleagues,
This week is “Employee Appreciation Week,” an opportunity to thank you for your dedicated service and commitment to UW-Green Bay and the State of Wisconsin. I am deeply grateful to you for your innovative spirit, your commitment to transforming the lives of our students and your love of this place.
Like you, Georgia and I are proud to be part of the Phoenix family. I see this every Friday when you wear your spirit gear and put that pride on display for the entire campus and community to see.
I want that pride to catch fire even more so I’m declaring every day “Phoenix Friday” all summer long. Employees are welcome–and encouraged!—to wear their GB gear each and every day of the summer so that your campus spirit shines just as brightly on Monday through Thursday as it does on Friday.
Need to add some new items into your wardrobe? The Bookstore is offering an additional 20% of all apparel on Wednesday and Friday of this week so you can stock up.
We are fortunate to have a talented workforce full of people dedicated to advancing UW-Green Bay and the Green Bay community. Indeed, there is no UWGB without U.
Thank you again for your exceptional service and commitment. I look forward to seeing you at the special events taking place this week.
Gary L. Miller
