Message to Faculty and Staff from UW System President Tommy Thompson

The UW-Green Bay Office of the Chancellor emailed the following from UW System President Tommy Thompson to the UW-Green Bay Faculty and Staff on Tuesday, September 8, 2020.

With the fall semester now underway, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you, the fantastic faculty and staff of the University of Wisconsin System. You are the heart and soul of what we do. Particularly in these challenging times, it’s your ingenuity, your flexibility, your perseverance, and your compassion that makes all of this possible.

For that, I am – we all are – profoundly grateful.

We can feel the energy of thousands of students at campuses all around the UW System. They are so eager to learn, eager to be part of their vital campus communities, and eager to embrace the future. It’s a great reminder of why we’re all here.

I know there are still unknowns and questions. But I am confident that together, we will figure it out. Wisconsin has always been a “can do” state and now is no different. As we work together to reinvigorate the Wisconsin Idea for the generations ahead,

I thank you again for your dedication to the UW System and the people of Wisconsin.

I hope you have a great fall semester.
