UW-Green Bay promises interdisciplinary, problem-focused education. It means students and faculty reach beyond narrow specialization for a more comprehensive approach to learning. Hands-on learning takes place across the University, from Psychology and Business to classes in History, Education and — in the example of these students visiting a renowned plastination lab in Germany — Human Biology.

Professors take all-around approach to learning
Laboratory work. Lectures. Discussions. Research. Field experience. UW-Green Bay faculty members are your guides to an all-around unique learning experience. Professors including Michael Zorn (shown here working with phosphorescence) emphasize problem-focused learning and multiple perspectives.
Building something better
Engage the world though service, involvement
The campus Habitat for Humanity chapter is just one of many student organizations offering opportunities to make a difference in the community. Through research projects, volunteer service and community-based internships, UW-Green Bay students address real problems with hands-on solutions.
At the center
Top-rated Cofrin Library is campus landmark
The David A. Cofrin Library, eight stories tall, stands at the center of campus both literally and figuratively. It boasts a tech-savvy team of helpful research assistants, amazing electronic resources and extensive physical holdings. Last fall the Cofrin was named best library in Wisconsin.
From move-in to graduation, you’ll feel at home
One of UW-Green Bay’s greatest traditions is freshman move-in day. Hundreds of faculty, staff and student volunteers pitch in at Residence Life so arriving freshmen and their families barely lift a finger. It’s a friendly gesture that exemplifies the University’s reputation as a safe, close-knit, welcoming community.

In any direction, scenic Arboretum is natural buffer
Ours is one of the largest and most beautiful campuses in the Midwest. The Cofrin Memorial Arboretum surrounds us with miles of hiking trails and a living laboratory. From Green Bay shoreline to rocky limestone outcrops, from forest to prairie, creek to pond, it’s worth exploring.
360° of diversity
Appreciation of other cultures takes root here
In Environmental Science and First Nations Studies, UW-Green Bay has two of the nation's best programs of their kind. This is seen in the “Three Sisters” garden modeling how indigenous people have long planted corn, beans and squash for sustainable soil chemistry and fertility. The plot demonstrates cultural diversity, the ecological wisdom of traditional ways, and campus commitment to a well-rounded experience.
