Lawton urges UW-Green Bay graduates to be active citizens

GREEN BAY - Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton encouraged University of Wisconsin-Green Bay graduates Saturday (May 24) to use their education to open the doors of democracy for themselves and for future generations.

Lawton, the first woman elected lieutenant governor in Wisconsin, said the graduates' education gives them the "intellectual muscle" not only to contribute to the economy, but to be active, involved citizens.

"You will one day govern this society," she said. "We need you to be judicious and wise."

Lawton was the featured speaker at UW-Green Bay's 2003 Spring Commencement ceremony Saturday afternoon at the outdoor amphitheater on the UW-Green Bay campus.

The University honored more than 700 graduates who were eligible to receive their diplomas during the ceremony. UW-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard presided over the event. It was the largest class ever to graduate from UW-Green Bay.

The commencement ceremony marked the University's 34th spring commencement. UW-Green Bay has conferred nearly 21,000 diplomas in its history.

Lawton, a former UW-Green Bay student and longtime friend of the University, compared and contrasted the UW-Green Bay she attended with today's University.

She noted that there have been major changes in terminology used to describe the University's programming and approach to education. But the core of UW-Green Bay's academic approach has not changed, she said.

"The restless pursuit of excellence — connecting learning to life as Chancellor Shepard reminds us — still drives the institution's work," Lawton said.

Gerard A. Randall Jr., a member of the UW Board of Regents, greeted and congratulated graduates on behalf of the Board of Regents. Randall said each graduate has a responsibility to teach others so they may become involved in community life.

"You are charged today to do that which enlightens, that which ennobles and that which is just," Randall said.

Other speakers included Prof. Jerrold Rodesch, retiring Secretary of the Faculty and Academic Staff; student speaker Christopher Barlow of Green Bay; and Outstanding Student Award recipient Chad Griepentrog of Spencer.

Chancellor Shepard presented Chancellor's Awards to Thomas L. Olson and to Gary R. Weidner. Olson is a charter member of the Chancellor's Council of Trustees and has multiple associations with the University dating to 1988. Weidner's wife, Ellen, accepted the award for Weidner, who died in January. His association with UW-Green Bay began when he was a youth after his father, Edward W. Weidner, became the University's first chancellor.

Chancellor Shepard led the applause Saturday for the many people who shared the graduates' accomplishments, including parents, other family members and friends. He said he wanted to recognize "everybody who had something to do with what is a community achievement."

Two will get Chancellor's Awards at UW-Green Bay commencement

GREEN BAY-University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard will present Chancellor's Awards to Thomas L. Olson and the late Gary R. Weidner during commencement ceremonies at noon Saturday, May 24 on the campus at 2420 Nicolet Dr.

Chancellor's Awards are presented to individuals who have had significant relationships with the University.

Olson, formerly president of Sonoco-U.S. Mills, Inc., began his involvement with the University in 1988 when he joined the University Founder's Association board, which he eventually served as president for two years. He was the community representative on the 1993 chancellor search and screen committee, and has testified on behalf of the University before state legislators and the Board of Regents. Olson is a charter member of the Chancellor's Council of Trustees, a community advisory group. He was chairman of the University's capital campaign planning committee in 2002, and presently co-chairs its capital campaign.

A native of Green Bay, Olson returned here and began a law career after earning a degree from the UW-Madison Law School. He left the practice in 1987 to become president of U.S. Paper Mills Corp., and the following year also became Chief Executive Officer. When the company was sold to Sonoco Products Company, Olson was named president of the new entity, a position he held until retiring in 2002.

Olson serves on the board of visitors of UW-Madison Law School, the board of directors of Aspiro, the corporate member board of N.E.W. Curative Rehabilitation, Inc., and the business strategy task force of St. Mary's Hospital Medical Center. He continues to serve on the board of directors for Riverside Paper Corp., Appleton.

Weidner's University association began at an early age, when the family moved to Green Bay after his father, Edward W. Weidner, became the first chancellor of UW-Green Bay. His father recalls that Gary went over every aspect of construction for the new University with him on weekend excursions. Weidner was an early and enthusiastic supporter of UW-Green Bay athletics, and was an advocate for Division I sports. He was a founding member of the Phoenix Dunkers Booster Club. With his wife, Ellen, Weidner was a member of the UW-Green Bay Founders Association, the Phoenix Fund, and the Theater First Nighters.

Weidner began a law career in Green Bay after earning a degree from UW-Madison Law School, and at the time of his death in January, was a partner in the same firm-now Hanaway Weidner Bachhuber Woodward & Maloney-where he started. His highest profile case was in December 2002, when he assisted in defending a Serbian woman at the War Crimes tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands.

Weidner was a member of the Brown County, Wisconsin, and American Bar Associations, the Wisconsin Academy of Trial Lawyers, and of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America. He was a Certified Trial Specialist.

Enrollment pressures lead UW-Green Bay to close transfer applications

GREEN BAY-The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay no longer is accepting applications from undergraduate transfer students for the fall 2003 semester.

Due to unprecedented success in retaining students and a strong flow of applications from prospective students, the University must curtail transfer applications or run the risk of exceeding enrollment targets by an unacceptable margin.

Enrollment pressures reflect strong interest in a UW-Green Bay education, according to Steven Neiheisel, assistant dean for enrollment services.

"Students want to get in here," Neiheisel said. "The demand leaves us no choice but to close applications early."

UW-Green Bay is cutting off transfer applications later than last year but earlier than the typical date for closing applications from transfer students.

The University stopped accepting applications from new freshmen for the fall 2003 semester Feb. 14. However, it continued to accept applications from transfers as late as possible because transfer applications tend to come in later. The University is projecting about 400 new transfer students next fall.

UW-Green Bay has a state-approved target of 4,384 full-time equivalent students for fall 2003. The FTE enrollment is based on the number of credits taken and is used in measuring the University's capacity. The enrollment target was established to balance enrollment and available resources, including adequate class sections and student services.

The University is expected to have an overall headcount enrollment - the total number of students taking classes - of about 5,400 students next fall.

UW-Green Bay will continue to make some exceptions to the applications cutoff for students who would enrich the campus community through special talent, diversity and other circumstances.

Applications also will continue to be accepted from students in various programs and categories, including Extended Degree, graduate, nursing completion and students who previously attended UW-Green Bay.

Social work ethics, boundaries workshop is at UW-Green Bay

GREEN BAY-Enrollment is open for "Advanced Social Work Ethics, Boundaries, and the 'Professional Use of Self'" set for 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday, June 26 in Wood Hall room 116 at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, 2420 Nicolet Dr.

The workshop is one in a series on Critical Issues in Social Work Practice sponsored by the Northeast Wisconsin Alliance for Social Worker Continuing Education.

The presenter is Kevin R. Roeder, an assistant professor in the Social Work professional program at UW-Green Bay, and a consultant with Tamanawit Unlimited, Seattle, Wash. Roeder has a B.S.W. degree from UW-Green Bay, an M.S.W. from UW-Milwaukee, and presently is working toward a Ph.D. degree. Roeder serves on ethics committees for Aurora BayCare Medical Center and the Wisconsin Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers.

Roeder's activities have included serving as director of life care services for the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, director of social work services for Camp Heartland Project, consultant for UW Extension, and social worker for the Wisconsin Division of Community Services. He has had practice experiences in a variety of other settings. He is the author of papers and articles in various venues on social work aspects of chemical dependency, HIV/AIDS, and other topics.

Social worker training programs sponsored by the Northeast Wisconsin Alliance for Social Worker Continuing Education are accepted by the State of Wisconsin as continuing education hours. This workshop provides four hours. The Wisconsin Department of Regulation and Licensing requires all levels of social workers to complete 30 hours of continuing education-including two hours in ethics and two in professional boundaries-in each two-year period. The next time period begins July 1.

The fee for the June 26 workshop is $70 if received before June 19, and $80 after June 19. The fee includes instruction, handouts, continental breakfast, continuing education hour certificate, and parking. The numbers for information are (920) 465-2642 or (800) 892-2118. Registration also is available online at

Tenor John Plier, a member of the faculty, will alternately sing and narrate the text. O'Grady says the use of text in a composition is a departure for him.

Students Timothy Patterson and Ellen Simon will perform "Neimos Duet," a composition written especially for and about them by Grosso. "Their individual personalities and relationship were the basis for the structure, thematic material, and temperament," says Grosso. Patterson and Simon performed the piece at their individual senior recitals in April.

UW-Green Bay marks 30th anniversary as site for state music festival

GREEN BAY - The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will achieve a milestone this weekend when the University hosts the Wisconsin School Music Association State Music Festival.

UW-Green Bay, one of nine university campuses statewide to host the solo and ensemble festival, will mark its 30th anniversary of serving as a host site for the popular festival.

About 3,000 student musicians will participate in the festival Saturday (May 3) at UW-Green Bay. They attend schools throughout Northeastern Wisconsin.

William Witwer, UW-Green Bay assistant professor of communication and the arts, said the 30th anniversary is a measure of the strong connection between the University and the region's school music programs.

"Thirty years is pretty significant," he said. "We're providing a valuable service for music education in this region and state."

The festival runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is open to the public and free of charge.

Including parents and friends, more than 6,000 people are expected to visit the UW-Green Bay campus during the one-day solo and ensemble festival.

"I don't know that there is another day of the year when we have so many potential students and their families on our campus," Witwer said.

To participate in the State Music Festival, students must first earn a "starred first" rating at a WSMA District Music Festival. District festivals are hosted by schools for students in grades 6-12. About 225 district festivals were held in Wisconsin during the past four months.

Thirty-four rooms on the UW-Green Bay campus will be used for the festival. They include rooms in Mary Ann Cofrin Hall, Studio Arts, the University Union and the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.

Dozens of University faculty members and students have volunteered to assist with the solo and ensemble festival.

UW-Green Bay has been serving as a host site for the state music festival since 1973. It is one of the longest continuously operating festival sites in the state.
