Dear UW-Green Bay Faculty and Staff,
Ben Joniaux, Cabinet Liaison for External Affairs, will be departing UW-Green Bay for a new job on May 13. Ben will leave a tremendous legacy here. His work to help us advocate the legislature for the new Cofrin Technology & Education Center brought the resources for the first major, fully state-funded capital project in over 20 years to come to UW-Green Bay. Ben has been a relentless proponent for us in local, tribal, and state government affairs as well as supporting myself, Chancellor Van Gruensven, and Chancellor Miller. He will be missed.
In a continuous effort to streamline the work we are doing administratively, we will not replace Ben’s position. Instead, Susan Grant Robinson will expand her role from Cabinet Liaison for Internal Affairs to Chief of Staff. This will allow Susan to focus the work we are doing to keep us on track with both internal and external endeavors in support of the mission of the university. Janet Bonkowski, will expand her role to include government relations.
Please join me in congratulating Ben on the next step in his career and supporting Susan and Janet in their new roles.
