HR Staffing update; Paquet named Assistant VC for Policy and Compliance

A restructure was approved Tuesday (Dec. 19, 2017) placing Christopher Paquet in the expanded role of Assistant Vice Chancellor for Policy and Compliance reporting to UW-Green Bay’s Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance, Sheryl Van Gruensven. With the departure of Christine Olson (who has taken a position with ThedaCare, in Appleton, as a senior Human Resources consultant), Paquet will provide oversight for UW-Green Bay Human Resources. Van Gruensven extends sincere appreciation to Olson for her years of service at UW-Green Bay in her many roles, including human resources director, human resources manager and payroll and benefit specialist.

Paquet continues to be responsible for the oversight and review of campus policies and procedures, external and internal compliance and internal matters that may lead to liability. This position will provide oversight and direction for the campus Human Resources function including the areas of recruitment and selection, titling and compensation planning, organizational and staff development, payroll and benefits administration, operational procedures, handbooks, policies and labor relations, and campus equity and affirmative action initiatives. This position also serves as the Title IX Coordinator on behalf of UW-Green Bay and is responsible for ensuring compliance with all requirements under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 related to the institution’s designation as a recipient of federal funding.

New Academic & University Staff Handbook

In an effort to streamline and create a more cohesive document for employees, Human Resources has worked with Academic and University Staff Governance representatives over the past year to refine and create an updated Employee Handbook for all Academic and University Staff Employees. The updated UW-Green Bay Employee Handbook for Academic and University Staff contains helpful information for all employees, including referential policies, campus information, and various resources.

Please review and become familiar with the information contained within this handbook.  Upon full review, please print, sign, and return a copy of the final page in this handbook- the Employee Acknowledgement to Human Resources.  All employees are requested to complete this review and submit an employee handbook acknowledgement no later than Friday, June 23.

Information Security Awareness Training

The University of Wisconsin System recently adopted UWS Administrative Policy 1032: Information Security: Awareness. This policy requires all employees to complete information security awareness training yearly. University employees have access to medium and high-risk data for themselves as well as others. Maintaining the security of that data from the continuous attack by hackers is a constant threat facing our employees.

As communicated via e-mail on 5/3/17, all Faculty and Staff are required to complete online training on Information Security Awareness by May 31, 2017. This training will provide employees with best practices on their role in protecting the university’s systems and data, and information on how to recognize the methods employed by hackers. The training will also provide information related to the UW-System information technology acceptable use policies. Training will take approximately ninety minutes and is self-paced, allowing you to come and go as you please until course completion.

Login information will be included in an e-mail from “University of Wisconsin-Green Bay” titled “UW-Green Bay Required Training: Information Security Awareness”.

Please contact Human Resources at or (920) 465-2390 with any questions and/or to request a reasonable accommodation.
