About UW-Green Bay
Founded in 1965, the University includes approximately 600 employees, with about 193 faculty and instructional staff members and an operating budget of about $125 million. The University has a modern, spacious campus overlooking Lake Michigan’s bay of Green Bay. Wooded trails, a nine-hole golf course and a 270-acre arboretum contribute to the park-like setting. The institution is heavily invested in state-of-the art academic facilities and special amenities for students. Most prominent are the well-equipped classroom building Mary Ann Cofrin Hall, the completely renovated Laboratory Sciences Building, the expanded University Union and the Kress Events Center — recently named one of the nation’s best rec centers — with seating for 4,000 and enviable recreation and fitness facilities. The eight-story Cofrin Library at the center of campus is regarded among the finest in the state. Other notable features are one of the nation’s best on-campus concert halls in the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts, and attractive student housing.
