Four College Model Transition Timeline

The University of Wisconsin Board of Regents voted Friday, December 11th, 2015 to approve a UW-Green Bay request for a major restructuring of the academic administration. Under the proposed changes, UW-Green Bay will move away from the two-colleges model currently in place to one in which academic majors, faculty, staff and resources will be aligned in four distinct colleges (or schools). For more information check out the official announcement on Inside UW-Green Bay News: http://news.uwgb.edu/log-news/releases/12/14/regents-approve-more-dynamic-administrative-model-for-uw-green-bay-15128/

Please contact Matt Dornbush, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Professional Development and Grants, or Clif Ganyard, Associate Provost , with any questions or concerns.

NOTE: This is a draft timeline subject to change as per the needs of the University, its staff, faculty, and students.
