Executive Order 54

In December 2011, the Governor issued Executive Order #54 requiring all University of Wisconsin System employees to immediately report child abuse or neglect if the employee, in the course of employment, observes an incident or threat of child abuse or neglect, learns of an incident or threat of child abuse or neglect, or has reasonable cause to believe that child abuse or neglect will occur. Please refer to UW Green Bay’s Policy on the Reporting of Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect for specific responsibilities and reporting requirements.

Volunteer Opportunities

In response to employee-generated suggestions as part of the campuswide “Quick Fix” campaign, the Human Resources Office has implemented “Quick Fix Initiative #99 – Facilitate volunteer service by employees.” HR created a web page which promotes volunteer opportunities for employees both on campus and in the community. At the HR homepage, see the Employee Quick Links column and click on the link “Volunteer Opportunities.” You’ll find links to resources in the community, such as the Volunteer Center of Brown County, and volunteer opportunities here at our University, such as helping the Institute for Learning in Retirement.
