The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay
Bruce Shepard, Chancellor
Period for this report — This summary of institutional highlights for the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is for the 2006-07 academic year, or the period July 1, 2006, to June 30, 2007. Also listed are selected events and activities from fall 2007 that represent a continuation or culmination of major initiatives in progress.
University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard, in his August 2006 convocation address to open the academic year, encouraged the faculty and staff to look to the University’s origins for guidance as they help build “the next UWGB.”
“I am again asking if we can step outside our comfort zones,” Shepard said, “like those who built the first UWGB, to think creatively about ourselves and our University.”
UW-Green Bay will not progress by clinging to the status quo. If anything, he said, “I believe we need to experiment more.”
He reminded the campus community that their University, founded in the 1960s in the spirit of innovation and experimentation, gained national attention for its emphasis on problem-solving, interdisciplinary education and its commitment to the environment.
These achievements were possible because the UW-Green Bay campus community — students, faculty and staff — worked with each other and with partners from beyond the campus borders to live up to the University’s call to action: “Connecting learning to life.”
