We’re Rockin’ the Resch!

UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary Miller e-mailed the following message to faculty, staff and students on Wednesday, February 15, 2017.

Good afternoon!

Students, alumni and staff are working hard to create a homecoming tradition on campus and I hope you’ll participate.  Next week, Wednesday, February 22, marks the start of Spirit Week when students have fun events and activities set up for everyone.  Themed dress up days are as follows:

Wednesday: Packers Pride Day (Wear Packers gear and get 25% off UWGB spirit wear at The Phoenix Bookstore)
Thursday: Go Green, wear it too! (Free GB Bandana with $10 purchase at The Phoenix Bookstore) and check out Phoenix Nite in the Phoenix Club at 7:30 p.m. There’s free pizza!
Friday: Show your Phoenix Pride! (Sing, hum, or display the words to our fight song for 20% off UWGB spirit wear at The Phoenix Bookstore) and then come out for Rock the Resch!

The culminating event of the week is Rock the Resch, which is completely FREE for students. Rock the Resch starts with a tailgate party and ends with us cheering on the Green Bay men’s basketball team to a win! Attached is more information about Rock the Resch. You need to register at https://rockthereschstudent17.eventbrite.com by Thursday, February 23 to attend.

I’m excited about this important initiative to build school spirit. Check out this video of Coach Darner and me showing just how excited we both are!

There are already over 450 people registered for Rock the Resch and I hope to see you there.

Go Phoenix!

Preventing harassment and sexual violence

UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary Miller e-mailed the following message to the campus community on Wednesday, February 8, 2017.

It is my pleasure to welcome you back to the beginning of the 2017 Spring Semester.  I hope you have found time in the past month to rest and rejuvenate. As you know, UW-Green Bay is committed to maintaining a campus community that ensures each student, faculty and staff member can work and learn together in a place that is free of discrimination including harassment and sexual violence.  Part of our campus’s vision provides for an environment that promotes personal and professional growth. Harassment in any form violates the dignity of an individual and threatens the integrity of this great University.

Eliminating and preventing harassment requires an ongoing, demonstrated commitment from all community members.  Therefore, UW-Green Bay is launching new online training for all faculty, staff and students designed to prevent these behaviors and remind us about the importance of this topic.  Faculty and staff will complete a course titled “Intersections: Preventing Harassment and Sexual Violence” which will be delivered to provide you skills to identify and prevent, guide conduct, and educate on the importance of reporting any and all abusive conduct. Included in this training is information on all forms of discrimination based upon protected characteristics along with information on UW-Green Bay’s policies and procedures.

In the next week, you will receive an e-mail from “University of Wisconsin- Green Bay” with the subject line “UW-Green Bay Harassment and Title IX Training.” The e-mail will include the information necessary to complete the training.

Training will take approximately one-hour and is self-paced, allowing you to come and go as you please until course completion. All faculty and staff must complete training by Friday, March 31, 2017.  Additional courses on FERPA, Executive Order 54, and Ethics will be rolled out in fall 2017.

Please contact Human Resources at hr@uwgb.edu or (920) 465-2846 with any questions and/or to request a reasonable accommodation. Thank you for your commitment to providing an environment free of harassment and sexual violence.
