UW--Green Bay Founders Award
The Environmental Management and Business Institute earned the 2013 Founders Award for Excellence in Collaborative Achievement for embodying the University’s ongoing commitment to its environmental roots. Commonly referred to as EMBI, the program connects campus and community by encouraging thoughtful analysis of environmental problems and solutions that are practical and cost-effective. The program advises businesses and agencies on improving their sustainable practices, which creates opportunities for students to gain insight into business issues while simultaneously exploring best practices in environmental policy. EMBI hosts a major annual conference, “Green Innovations,” held each April during Earth Week.
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has recognizes its top faculty and staff members with Founders Association Awards for Excellence at the annual UW-Green Bay Faculty and Staff Autumn Convocation. Faculty and staff members from across campus contribute to the Institute’s success, led by individuals from key academic units including Natural and Applied Sciences, Public and Environmental Affairs, and Business Administration.
