UW grant supports manure-to-energy studies

GREEN BAY -- Two University of Wisconsin-Green Bay graduate students will spend June 1 through May 31, 2002, working and learning in a first-of-its kind installation that makes renewable energy from manure.

A University of Wisconsin System Applied Research Grant of $44,400, won by Prof. John Katers, Natural and Applied Sciences, will support the work of students Joe Raboin, Shawano, and Anne Schauer, Milwaukee, at Ag Environmental Solutions, LLC (AES) located at Tinedale Farm in Wrightstown. Raboin and Schauer are both students in Environmental Science and Policy at UW-Green Bay.

Katers says the students will monitor and test the AES-designed temperature-phased anaerobic digestion system (TPAD) during its first year of operation. The system converts waste into electricity and safe, usable solids. Tinedale Farm is one of the largest dairy operations in Wisconsin with nearly 2,500 animals producing 60,000 gallons of manure each day.

Katers notes that while several TPAD systems are operating at municipal wastewater treatment plants, the installation at Tinedale is the first in the U.S. for the dairy industry. He has been among advisers to AES on the project. "The knowledge we gain during the start-up monitoring could contribute to use of this new application of digester technology to the dairy industry in Wisconsin and nationally," says Katers.

The potential impact on Wisconsin's economy was among criteria that led UW System to fund the UW-Green Bay grant, according to Albert J. Beaver, interim senior vice president for academic affairs.

UW System News: William Kuepper named Interim Chancellor at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay

Contact: Kevin Boatright (608) 263-2227

MADISON -- William Kuepper, vice chancellor and provost emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, has been named interim chancellor, effective July 1.

Mark Perkins, chancellor at UW-Green Bay since 1994, was recently appointed president of Towson University in Maryland. He begins his new duties there on July 1. The search for a permanent successor to Perkins is now under way. A decision is expected in August. Kuepper will serve until the new chancellor is named and arrives on campus

Kuepper (pronounced KIPPER) retired from UW-Green Bay in 1995 after 30 years as a member of its faculty. He served twice as vice chancellor, for a total of 13 years in that position. Between his two terms, he spent two years in Madison with the UW System Administration as interim vice president for academic affairs and senior academic planner. Kuepper moved to Colorado in 1996 and, for the past four years, he has served as a senior policy adviser with the Colorado Commission on Higher Education.

Kuepper's academic background includes B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in geography from UW-Madison. His first teaching position was at the two-year UW "center" in Green Bay, which became a four-year, degree-granting university in 1968.

In announcing the appointment of an interim chancellor, UW System President Katharine Lyall expressed appreciation to Kuepper for his willingness to serve. "Bill devoted most of his distinguished career to building up the academic program at UW-Green Bay," she said. "His sense of duty to the campus is commendable, and I thank him for taking on this important assignment."

"A change in leadership is a challenging time for an educational institution," said Kuepper, "and I will be proud to serve the UW-Green Bay community during this transition. I appreciate the Colorado Commission on Higher Education's granting me leave for this purpose. My wife Janet and I look forward to our return to Green Bay."

UW-Green Bay's Cohen to be chancellor at Purdue Calumet

GREEN BAY - Dr. Howard Cohen has been confirmed as the new chancellor of Purdue University Calumet.

An official announcement was made today (Tuesday, May 22) upon confirmation by the Purdue Board of Trustees. Cohen will succeed James W. Yackel, who will retire in July after serving 11 years as chancellor of the campus, which is located in Hammond, Indiana, just southeast of Chicago. Cohen's appointment is effective July 1.

"I am tremendously excited about this opportunity," Cohen said. "Purdue is a great university and the Calumet region is a dynamic, exciting community with tremendous vitality. I look forward to working with our faculty, staff, students, alumni and community partners to build on Purdue Calumet's record of excellence and lead it to the next level."

Purdue Calumet is a comprehensive regional university that offers associate, baccalaureate and master's degrees, plus professional certificates in nearly 100 fields of study. Its enrollment of more than 9,000 students represents the largest number at any of Purdue's regional campuses. The chancellor at Calumet reports directly to the Purdue president.

Cohen has served as provost and vice chancellor of academic affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay since 1995.

As provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at UW-Green Bay, he is the chief academic officer reporting to the Chancellor and the chief operating officer, overseeing student services, information services, planning and budget as well as the academic programs.

Among his major accomplishments at UW-Green Bay are leadership of the "CAPE I" and "CAPE II" evaluations of the academic program array, and of the Task Force on the Compelling Idea, which focused planning for future growth on academics and the student learning experience.

He initiated the reorganization of UW-Green Bay's division of information services, oversaw the upgrade of technology campuswide, and led the evaluation of support-staff levels through the FAIRNIS study.

During his tenure as provost, the University earned its first, full 10-year accreditation from the North Central Association; sharpened its academic focus as a distinctive, interdisciplinary liberal arts institution; and secured new, annual state funding for creation of the Institute for Learning Partnership, a national model for teacher preparation. Among units under his direction, Residence Life opened its first upscale "apartment suites" housing units, Admissions began to actively pursue geodemographic and non-resident marketing, and a range of offices stepped up efforts to meet goals of the campus Plan 2008 for Diversity.

"I am proud of the things we have achieved at UW-Green Bay," he said. "This University is very special in American higher education. All of the elements are in place for the campus to make a unique contribution to student learning. I have learned so much from our work together - knowledge I will build on in my new position."

At UW-Green Bay, Cohen holds the faculty rank of professor of humanistic studies (philosophy). He came to Green Bay from UW-Parkside, where he had served as dean of liberal arts and interim vice chancellor. Previously, he was at the University of Massachusetts-Boston, where he joined the faculty in 1971 and rose to the post of associate provost before leaving for Wisconsin in 1991.

Cohen received his bachelor's degree in philosophy from the University of Minnesota in 1966. He went on to earn his master's and doctorate degrees in the same discipline from Harvard in 1970 and 1971, respectively.

Heirloom vegetable plant sale features new varieties, Internet preview

GREEN BAY -- Eighty different varieties each of heirloom tomatoes and peppers go on sale Saturday and Sunday, May 19 and 20 at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and for the first time, gardeners can preview the vegetables on the World Wide Web.

Sale hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days in the Laboratory Sciences greenhouse off South Circle Drive on the campus at 2420 Nicolet Dr. In addition to the tomatoes and peppers, the sale offers eight different members of the cabbage family, four different eggplants, pink celery and celeriac. All plants are $1 each.

An advance look at the vegetables is available on the Internet at www.uwgb.edu/biodiversity/Heirloom/ 2001salelist.htm. That address accesses the list of all the vegetables for sale. Viewers can click on the tomatoes and peppers to see photos and get information about them.

Sale founder and organizer Prof. Jeff Nekola, Natural and Applied Sciences, says the on-line preview will be a boon for shoppers making decisions among so many varieties. "For the first time in the sale's six-year history, people can know in advance what the tomatoes and peppers will look like," he says.

The sale supports a lecture series that brings scientists from all over the country to speak at UW-Green Bay, and also provides funds for student scholarships.

Sale 2001 has many new choices. Nekola has added new varieties and rotated some favorites from early sales back into the lineup. And he and student workers have grown more of popular favorites such as the Brandywine cherry tomato and the Wisconsin Lakes sweet pepper.

Some offerings, such as the sweet Habenero-type peppers that are new this year and the Tobago peppers he brought back from a trip to that tropical island a couple of years ago, are available nowhere else in the upper Midwest, says Nekola.

This year's longer list of sweet peppers includes Chinese Giant, described as one of the first big, modern looking bell peppers developed shortly after the turn of the 20th century, Purple Beauty, which ripens to red, and an array of yellow and orange peppers.

A seed swap Nekola made with a grower in Great Britain supplied several new varieties. Tigerette cherry tomato is a small plant bred to be container-grown; Reisetomate is a cherry tomato of German origin that grows in clusters fused at the top; Ramillete, from Majorca, is bright papaya-colored inside; Teguchigalpa paste tomato is shaped like a chili pepper and was one of Nekola's 2000 garden favorites; and the Puerta Vallarta #2 pepper starts out green and progresses to yellow, purple, orange, and finally, red. A trade with a grower from an old order Mennonite community in Pennsylvania brought new peppers with evocative names such as Hinklehatz (chicken heart), Lantern, and Starfish.

Nekola grows out all of the peppers and tomatoes in his own garden in order to get seeds to start plants for the sale. "These are varieties I have had success with," he says.

Nekola acquires seeds from around the world. He's a member of Seed Savers Exchange in Decorah, Iowa, which gives him access to a thousand other members who have seeds to trade. He tries to connect with people who have handed down seeds through generations, and visits farmers markets and ethnic food stores. Friends bring him seeds from their travels.

Though the vegetables have a variety of origins, they're all described as "heirlooms." Nekola explains that the term may describe "old-fashioned" varieties, vegetables grown by Native Americans before the arrival of Europeans, or new strains developed by hobbyists.

Heirlooms are popular for their "old-time" flavor, unusualness, and diversity, and because preserving them helps to preserve culture, says Nekola. "Heritage plants provide a living connection to the past," he adds.

For Nekola, growing and passing along heirloom vegetables is serious business, too. A conservation biologist, he is concerned about protecting plant gene diversity for the future. Disasters such as the Irish potato famine occurred because the potatoes grown were all of a variety not resistant to blight. Southern corn blight killed 90 percent of the U.S. crop in the 1970s for the same reason. "All the different genes have potential uses in plant breeding," says Nekola.
