Excellence in Community Outreach
Professor, Public and Environmental Affairs
Denise Scheberle, a political scientist and professor with the Public and Environmental Affairs academic unit, receives her second Founders Award, this time for community outreach. She received a previous award for excellence in teaching. This award recognizes her “passion for making a difference in the community.” Currently a commissioner with the Green Bay Metropolitan Sewerage District, she has been particularly active on regional issues related to public policy and natural resources.
Scheberle has contributed to citizen education efforts and public advisory committees related to the Lower Green Bay and Fox River Remedial Action Plan. Her interests range from local issues to those with international priority, including service with an organization created by a U.S.-Canadian treaty to monitor water use in the Great Lakes basin. Scheberle’s sustained commitment to the community, her passionate stewardship of environmental issues and her collaborative spirit, make her an admired colleague and respected ambassador for UW-Green Bay.
