Careful readers of the Fall 2011 Schedule of Classes will notice some familiar names missing from the “instructor” column. There’s a good reason for this. After more than 30 years of distinguished service at UW-Green Bay, Dr. Lloyd Noppe will retire this summer, and although we will miss him greatly, we are also very happy for him and will celebrate his career with an in-depth profile in our year-end issue of the PF. Students should also know that Dr. Illene Noppe will be on sabbatical in Fall 2011 but will return to full-time teaching in Spring 2012. Dr. Regan Gurung will be on sabbatical for Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 but will rejoin us in Fall 2012. Our next issue will feature more information about the exciting plans for their sabbaticals, which should both result in fabulous information and experiences to share with students in future semesters. Please congratulate all of these wonderful faculty members when you see them!
