Resources & Facilities
The Environmental Science and Policy Program at the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay offers a wide range of resources for graduate projects. Students have full access to the resources of the Cofrin Library, the 25,000 specimen UWGB Herbarium, the 45,000 specimen Richter Museum of Natural History, and the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity. The Cofrin Center houses a Geographic Information Systems Laboratory, manages five natural areas dedicated to research and education, and serves as a major resource for natural resource managers in northeastern Wisconsin.
Faculty and staff in the Ecosystems Studies and Environmental Technology & Analysis emphasis areas are housed in the newly remodeled Laboratory Sciences building. This facility houses a suite of analytical equipment, highlighted by a variety of gas chromatographs, an ICP emission spectrometer, and a CamScan scanning electron microscope. The Laboratory Sciences building also has a walk-in climate-controlled chamber, a large, three-bay greenhouse, and a boathouse on the shore of Green Bay.
Faculty and staff in the Environmental Policy and Administration emphasis area are housed in the environmentally friendly Mary Ann Cofrin Hall, completed in 2001. Close ties exist with national, state and local agencies, providing students with opportunities to become engaged with, and contribute to, meaningful scientific research and policy formulation.
