UW-Green Bay staff and faculty on UW Spirit Day

A spirited event
About 35 staff members and a few faculty gathered on UW Spirit Day (May 7) to show their spirit and allegiance to UW-Green Bay or their own UW alma maters. The event was held across the state to showcase and celebrate the contributions of the nearly 500,000 UW alumni who live and work in Wisconsin. In downtown Green Bay, graduates from UW-Green Bay, UW-Stevens Point and UW-Platteville stopped to celebrate at Oxford's Pub and Grill. Spirit Day will become an annual event.

Where's life leading you?
The UW-Green Bay Human Development Program in partnership with friends from Japan are in search of the answer. Consider taking part in an online Life Goals Survey involving UWGB alumni and college alumni in Japan to better understand factors that influence life goals throughout adulthood. The survey asks about your most important life goals as well as other personal characteristics such as health status, interpersonal relationships, spirituality, and ethnic identity. It takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. You can participate in this exciting international project by clicking on the following link that takes you to the consent form and then onto the survey: Thank you for doing UW-Green Bay proud!
