Academic Achievement Night

UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary Miller e-mailed the following message to faculty and staff on Thursday, February 12, 2016.

Excellence in academics is at the core of what we do as a university, and we will be emphasizing that commitment at the women’s basketball game on Thursday, February 11 at the Kress Events Center.  We will be recognizing the many student-athletes who have earned a GPA of 3.5 or better in the spring or fall 2015 during a halftime ceremony.

To help honor these student-athletes and thank those who contribute to their academic success, I join Athletics Director Mary Ellen Gillespie and the entire Athletics Department in inviting you – UW-Green Bay faculty and staff – to attend the game as guests of the Athletics Department.

The Athletics Department will provide a ticket free of charge for you and a guest.  Additional tickets can also be purchased for $10.

Our student-athletes’ success is made possible because of what you do for all of our students.  That is why we will be recognizing all faculty and staff colleagues in attendance during a pre-game announcement prior to the national anthem.

Here are the details:

Green Bay Women’s Basketball vs. Youngstown State
Thursday, February 11, 2015
7:00 p.m. at the Kress Events Center

Tickets ordered by Tuesday, February 9th, will be mailed via campus mail. Orders received after that date will be held at will call.

Colleagues,

At our last Town Hall meeting there were a number of questions regarding faculty and staff benefits in a new University Authority.

Thanks.
