Adult Degree Hoppe Scholarship awarded to Jennifer Wilson
GREEN BAY - Jennifer Wilson, a student in the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay's Adult Degree Program, has been awarded the program's Patricia L. Hoppe Scholarship.
Wilson, of Green Bay, will receive the scholarship of $750 for the 2006 spring semester. The scholarship recognizes a nontraditional student who exhibits maturity, ability and desire to meet the program's challenges.
The scholarship is made available to UW-Green Bay Adult Degree Program students by the family and friends of Patricia L. Hoppe, a former student in the program who died of cancer before she could complete her degree. Before she passed away, Hoppe expressed her desire to help nontraditional students achieve their educational and career goals.
UW-Green Bay's innovative Adult Degree Program is a bachelor's degree program that provides a higher education to nontraditional students who otherwise would not have the opportunity. Students attend half-day Saturday classes once a month and work independently between classes. Some classes are offered online, or through audio and videotape.

UW-Green Bay athletic teams perform well in report on graduation success
GREEN BAY - Led by four teams with perfect scores, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay athletic teams had strong results in a new report that measures graduation rates of NCAA Division I student-athletes.
The NCAA's new Graduation Success Rate report shows that UW-Green Bay's women's basketball, women's Nordic skiing, women's cross country and men's golf teams had perfect 100 percent graduation success rates.
Four other athletic teams - men's basketball, men's cross country, men's swimming and women's soccer - had graduation success rates above 90 percent.
In both men's and women's basketball, UW-Green Bay had the highest graduation success rates of any Division I basketball programs in Wisconsin.
Overall, UW-Green Bay athletic teams had a 90 percent graduation success rate, well above the national average of 76 percent for all Division I schools. The report covers students entering school from 1995 to 1998.
UW-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard said the new Graduation Success Rate provides a more accurate picture of academic success than measures used in the past. Shepard added that UW-Green Bay student-athletes have performed well in every available measure of classroom performance.
"UW-Green Bay student-athletes have a proud tradition of academic success," he said. "This reflects well on these young men and women and also on the support they receive from faculty and staff."
UW-Green Bay Athletics Director Ken Bothof said academic achievement is a major part of the University experience for student-athletes.
"They have consistently shown that they are serious about succeeding in the classroom as well as on the court and field or in the pool," Bothof said.
The Graduation Success Rate is considered a more accurate measurement than those used previously because it reflects the mobility among college and university students. It removes students who leave institutions while academically eligible. About three-fourths of all NCAA Division I scholarship student-athletes graduate either from the institution they started at or where they transferred.
The Graduation Success Rate is one component of the NCAA's effort to improve the academic performance of student-athletes. UW-Green Bay teams also ranked well above national averages in the first Academic Progress Report released in February. That report measures eligibility and retention - two factors research identifies as the best indicators of graduation prospects.

UW-Green Bay graduates encouraged to 'break down those walls'
GREEN BAY - Members of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay's largest mid-year graduating class were encouraged and challenged at commencement ceremonies Saturday (Dec. 17) at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.
Commencement speaker William Hanrahan, an assistant state attorney general, welcomed the graduates to an exclusive club with benefits graduates will continue to receive for years to come. Those benefits include higher lifetime earnings, greater flexibility and mobility, and a greater sense of optimism, Hanrahan said.
"This is a family membership," he added. "The benefits will trickle down to your children and your children's children.
About 380 students were eligible to receive their diplomas at commencement Saturday. It was the 36th December commencement in UW-Green Bay's history.
With the awarding of diplomas Saturday, UW-Green Bay has conferred about 23,000 degrees, dating to the first commencement in 1970.
Commencement speaker Hanrahan, an assistant attorney general in the Wisconsin Department of Justice and a 1982 graduate of UW-Green Bay, won the 2005 UW-Green Bay Alumni Association Distinguished Alumni Award.
Hanrahan urged graduates to reject the ignorance that dominates today's public discourse. Using terminology often used to describe political divisions in America today, he said the graduates should refuse to be members of either red or blue America but instead create a purple state.
"Let's break down those walls," he said.
Graduating class speaker Elizabeth Bostwick, of Richland Center, said the graduates' learning will not end with the attainment of a college degree.
"We must learn from our challenges, to better ourselves and the world around us," Bostwick said. "Continue to grow, continue to learn, continue to be passionate about what you do."
UW-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard, who presided over the commencement ceremonies, said commencement celebrates the community, not just the achievements of individuals.
"Commencement is about graduates, to be sure," he said. "But it is also about values, commitments, and above all, people whose dedication makes this moment possible."
Shepard recognized family and friends of graduates, community members, faculty and others who helped the graduates achieve their goals.
Other highlights of Saturday's commencement included:
• the awarding of the UW-Green Bay Alumni Association's Outstanding Student Award to April Kobishop of Marinette. Kobishop maintained a near-perfect grade point average while taking advantage of on-campus and online learning opportunities to earn her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree while working in the nursing field.
• the awarding of the Chancellor's Award to three community members — Bernard and Sally Killoran and Robert Southard — for their activities on behalf of the University and community. The Killorans, both retired educators, have made education a priority through college scholarships. Southard, whose career in local radio and television broadcasting spanned six decades, has been a longtime supporter of UW-Green Bay.
• presentation of the John P. Blair Endowed Chair in Communication to Prof. Timothy Meyer. It is the first endowed chair in UW-Green Bay's history. Meyer, professor of Information and Computing Science, is a nationally recognized scholar in the areas of electronic media, public relations and advertising.

First students earn degrees in new
UW-Green Bay/UW-Oshkosh social work program
GREEN BAY - The first students to complete a new, innovative Master of Social Work program operated jointly by the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and UW-Oshkosh will receive their degrees on Saturday, Dec. 17. Fourteen are eligible to receive their degrees in ceremonies at 11:30 a.m. in the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. Sixteen will receive their degrees earlier the same day at UW-Oshkosh.
The students are the first to enroll in the master's degree program approved in 2002 by the Board of Regents. The Board designated the program to be “a highly innovative model for collaboration among UW-campuses” and to meet a regional need for social workers with advanced education. The only other M.S.W. programs offered in the UW System are at Madison and Milwaukee.
Collaborative program director Judy Martin, a professor of Social Work at UW-Green Bay, called the first graduates — all of them women — the “founding mothers” of the new program and declared them “ready to take leadership positions in the field of social work throughout the region.”
“This group of students worked extremely hard to obtain their degrees,” she said. “The faculty has been excited about teaching this group of motivated and committed students.”
Martin noted that many of the students were working full time, doing a required 16-hour-a-week placement in a social work setting, and raising families while doing required course readings and assignments. Several students changed jobs while in the program, some moved, and five of the 30 had new babies. “This very talented group of students 'did it all' and did it well,” she said.
The program is tailored to meet needs of students with professional experience.
According to Martin, students can enter the program through either institution. “However, we have ONE program, and all students have to meet the same requirements and have access to the same benefits,” she explained.
Faculty members at both institutions teach the courses. Some classes are offered on each campus, and others meet at a central location between the two campuses. Students chose one of the two sponsoring campuses to be their “home” campus from which they'll get their degrees.
Students receiving UW-Green Bay degrees on Saturday are Kimberly Collins, Green Bay; Vicky Coppens, Green Bay; Natalie DeSimone, Manitowoc; Shanna Devos, Green Bay; Eileen Diller, Green Bay; Nancy Krueger, Manitowoc; Pebbles Peterson, Shawano; Teri Phalin, Tomahawk; Nina Powell, Sobieski; Carey Schiller, Oneida; Patricia Scieszinski, Sturgeon Bay; Elaine Tabordon, Algoma; Christy Webster, Menasha; and Doreen Weyenberg, Green Bay.
Receiving their degrees at UW-Oshkosh are Tania Cornelius, Green Bay; Leah Diedrick, Little Chute; Stephanie Feider, Sheboygan Falls; Lisa Frei, Fond du Lac; Sheila Garrigan, Green Bay; May See Her, Wausau; Carol Koch, Oshkosh; Karen Kundinger, Oshkosh; Erin Moran, Appleton; Emily Lewis, Appleton; Sheila Reichert, Wisconsin Rapids; Geri Rettler, Black Creek; Kathryn Sexton, Appleton; Susan Sorenson, Valders; Sherah Seroka, Neenah; and Tera Williams, Oshkosh.

Regents grant sabbaticals to five
GREEN BAY - The University of Wisconsin Board of Regents on Friday granted
sabbaticals for 2006-2007 to five members of the faculty at the University
of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
Sabbaticals recognize faculty members' teaching and provide for reassignment for a period of time for in-depth study that will enhance their teaching in the future.
Receiving sabbatical leaves for the full academic year were Associate Professors Victoria Goff, Information and Computing Science; Kim Nielsen, Social Change and Development and Women's Studies; and Tara Reed, Natural and Applied Sciences. Goff will complete two books — a textbook on feature writing and a book on the history of Spanish language media in the U.S. Nielson, who has published books on Helen Keller, will complete a biography of Keller's teacher, Anne Sullivan Macy. Reed will develop lab exercises and research tools for use in her classes.
Prof. Robert Howe, director of the Cofrin Arboretum Center for Biodiversity at UW-Green Bay, was granted a sabbatical for fall semester to prepare a book-length work on the history and natural features of the Arboretum. It will serve as a reference to 30 years of accumulated data and research in the Arboretum.
Georjeanna Wilson-Doenges, an associate professor in Urban and Regional Studies, will be on sabbatical spring semester. She'll analyze historic data that would enable her to map out suburban trends in the Green Bay metropolitan region for the past 60 years. She plans to develop a course on suburban living.

UW-Green Bay announces new direction for Weidner Center programming
GREEN BAY - University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard today announced a programming transition for the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts that will be built primarily around campus and community fine arts performances, speaker series and educational programming. The transition will bring the Weidner's programming approach closer to the original concept for the center.
The transition is aimed at ensuring fiscal stability for the Weidner Center.
In announcing the new programming approach, Shepard said it will provide a base for further programming. The University and community entities are actively exploring additional innovative programming options.
"I wish to emphasize our commitment to return the Weidner Center to a financially sustainable base," Shepard said. "I am confident that, just as at the inception of this community jewel, over the decades ahead we will see the Weidner Center continuing to respond to the critical cultural needs of our area through programming responsive to the community's needs."
Shepard and Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce President Paul Jadin also announced that they have appointed a task force of community leaders to develop recommendations for the long-term future of the Weidner Center and other performing arts venues in the area.
The actions are needed to address serious financial challenges facing performing arts venues locally and nationally. Support for the performing arts has declined substantially over the past decade.
The Weidner Center has felt the impact of this decline and of increasing fees charged by promoters of touring shows. The number of season-ticket subscribers has decreased by nearly 80 percent over the last 10 years. At the same time, it is difficult for the Weidner to meet even direct costs of shows with capacity crowds.
Without changes in its operating approach, the center would lose a projected $2 million this year, the Chancellor said.
Shepard stressed that the Weidner Center's new programming model takes effect with the 2006-07 season. All remaining shows for 2005-06 will appear as scheduled, and ticket sales for these shows will continue.
The actions announced today will result in the loss of additional positions — the Weidner's executive director, general manager, director of development and director of finance among them — in the near future.
The Weidner Center opened its doors in 1993. The center was able to establish and build a financial reserve, largely because of the success of touring Broadway productions. However, performing arts centers typically cover only a portion of their costs through ticket sales.
The Weidner Center began preparing for the rapidly changing market three years ago by cutting overhead and employees, revising the programming mix and terminating unprofitable relationships with other performing arts venues.
The financial picture changed even more drastically than expected due to a decline in quality new Broadway product, changes in funding models and increased local competition for the discretionary entertainment dollar.

Fourth Estate staffer wins national student newspaper award
GREEN BAY - The Fourth Estate, the student newspaper at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, won a prestigious national award at the recent Associated Collegiate Press National College Media Convention in Kansas City.
Fawn Giese, the Fourth Estate's layout editor during the 2004-05 academic year, won second-place honors in the "News Page/Spread" category for a layout in the newspaper's Oct. 14, 2004 edition. The layout was headlined "Student musicians rock the GB music scene."
The Associated Collegiate Press is the largest national membership organization for college student media in the United States.
Giese finished second to a student from North Carolina State University. However, she placed ahead of finalists from Ball State University, Indiana University and Columbia University.
"I was really happy when I heard I was even a finalist," she said. "I was very excited when I found out who I was up against."
Lindsey Oostra, Fourth Estate editor in chief, said the national award did not come as a surprise to Fourth Estate staffers familiar with Giese's work.
"She was probably the most talented layout person the Fourth Estate has seen in years, and she was missed after she graduated in May," Oostra said.
Giese, of Mayville, graduated from UW-Green Bay in May 2005. She majored in Communication and the Arts with an emphasis in graphic design.
She previously won a regional award for her work on the Oct. 14, 2005 edition of the Fourth Estate. She took first place in layout/page design at the Associated Collegiate Press Best of the Midwest competition in March.

UW-Green Bay play, actors get theater festival bid
GREEN BAY - The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Theater production "Red Herring" has been invited to the Region III American College Theater Festival (ACTF) January 11 through 14, 2006, at Illinois State University in Bloomington-Normal, Ill.
UW-Green Bay cast and crew will give three performances of "Red Herring" at noon, 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 13 in Illinois.
The invitation is an achievement especially when put into context, according to Theater chairperson and "Red Herring" director Laura Riddle. Fifty productions from schools throughout the five-state region were competing for invitations: UW-Green Bay is among the six or eight selected. The five-state region has a large number of colleges and universities both big and small, including a number of institutions with graduate programs in theater. The festival has some 1,600 attendees.
Two benefit performances of "Red Herring" will be presented at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 9 in University Theater at UW-Green Bay to help defray costs of making the trip.
In addition to the tour invitation, six students have been nominated for the Irene Ryan Scholarship acting competition that will take place on Jan. 11 at ACTF. Three of the nominees — Derek Meyer, Merrill; Kristin Stafford, Kingsford, Mich.; and Zach McLain, Fence — were selected for their work in "Red Herring."
The other competitors are Jillian Nelson, Lake Mills, for "The Laramie Project;" Carrie Weis, Lodi, for "A Midsummer Night's Dream;" and D.J. Wierschem, Glendale, who was nominated for both "The Laramie Project" and "A Midsummer Night's Dream." The competition is named for the actress who portrayed Granny in the television series "Beverly Hillbillies," and who left a legacy providing scholarships for young actors. This is Weis's third consecutive trip to the contest. Wierschem also competed in 2005.
UW-Green Bay has three individuals in the running for Awards of Merit. UW-Green Bay alumnus Christopher Hibbard, formerly of De Pere but now of the Chicago area, who directed "The Laramie Project," is nominated for a guest director award. Two nominations are for work on "A Midsummer Night's Dream." They are faculty member Kaiome Malloy for costumes, and student Zak Viviano, Green Bay, for lighting design.
A UW-Green Bay competitor in the national stage management competition at ACTF is Amanda Scholz, Brown Deer, who was stage manager for "Red Herring" and other productions.
Riddle says "Red Herring" performance day at ACTF will be grueling for UW-Green Bay cast and crew. "It's going to be really tight," she notes. They'll start with a timed load-in at 7:30 a.m., give performances at noon, 4 p.m. and 8 p.m., and follow immediately with the load-out that they have to accomplish in an hour. UW-Green Bay has previously won ACTF awards for load-in and load-out proficiency.
The October production of "Red Herring" in the 100-seat Jean Weidner Theater in the Weidner Center was done with a minimal crew, but Riddle anticipates taking "a couple of extra people" to help at ACTF.
Two, rather than one, benefit performances are scheduled at UW-Green Bay on Jan.6 not only to raise funds for the trip, but also to prepare students by giving them a sense of what it's like to give performances with short turn-around time, according to Riddle. Also, the benefit is being scheduled in University Theater because it more closely approximates the 700-seat venue where they'll perform in Illinois.
This is the third invitation to tour a play to the regional ACTF festival in five years for UW-Green Bay. "The Christmas Schooner" got the nod for 2004 and "Aloha, Say the Pretty Girls" went in 2002. Both times, UW-Green Bay came home with Golden Hand Truck awards for excellence in load-in and load-out. Invitations to ACTF are initiated after objective judges travel to view each play entered for consideration. Representatives of The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. attend the regional festivals to evaluate productions for possible performance at the Kennedy Center.
Ticket information for benefit performances of "Red Herring" at 3 and 7 p.m. on Jan.6 in University Theater is available by calling (920) 465-2217 or (800) 328-8587.

Commencement speaker William E. Hanrahan is assistant attorney general in the Wisconsin Department of Justice where he heads the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. Hanrahan won the 2005 UW-Green Bay Alumni Association Distinguished Alumni Award and also was honored in 2005 for his work and writing on behalf of the vulnerable elderly by the "Wisconsin Law Journal" and the Wisconsin Bar Association. He graduated from UW-Green Bay in 1982 with a degree in Urban and Regional Studies.
Elizabeth Bostwick, Richland Center, will be the student speaker. She is graduating with highest honors, having distinguished herself in both her major of theater and her minor of arts management. Bostwick plans to further her education by earning a master's degree in arts administration.
April Kobishop, Marinette, who is receiving her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, will receive the Alumni Association's Outstanding Student Award. She maintained a perfect grade point average while taking advantage of a variety of on campus and online opportunities to earn her degree while working in the nursing field.
Shepard will present Chancellor's Awards to three members of the community for their activities on behalf of the University and the community. Bernard and Sally Killoran are educators who, in retirement, have continued to make education a priority through college scholarships. Robert Southard's career in broadcasting spanned six decades, including work at all three major television network affiliates in Green Bay. All three have been advocates and supporters of UW-Green Bay in many capacities since the mid-1980s.
UW-Green Bay Chancellor Emeritus Edward W. Weidner will join in presenting the John P. Blair Endowed Chair in Communication to Prof. Timothy Meyer. The first fully endowed chair in the University's history, the position was made possible by a $1.5 million gift to UW-Green Bay from Mrs. Dorothy Blair and the Blair Foundation in honor of Mrs. Blair's late husband, a media pioneer. Meyer, who joined UW-Green Bay in 1982, conducts research in the areas of electronic media, public relations and advertising, most particularly on the impact of media on various audiences.
Honorary titles of Professor Emeritus will be bestowed upon two retiring faculty members. Gilbert T. Null will be named Professor Emeritus of Humanistic Studies (Philosophy) and Anthony H. Galt will be awarded the title Professor Emeritus of Social Change and Development (Anthropology).

Four cited for creative teaching
GREEN BAY - Four individuals have been singled out for "Creative Approaches to Teaching" by the Faculty Development Council at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
Karen Dalke, an adjunct faculty member in Urban and Regional Studies, was selected for her first-day strategy for creating a positive learning environment in lecture classes with larger enrollments. She has students form small groups where they introduce themselves to each other, develop a short profile of group members, and report back to the larger class.
Debbie Burden, Karla Larson and Linda Toonen, all lecturers in English composition, were recognized for their strategy of using "partner" or small group conferences, rather than individual conferences to discuss student writing, giving students to learn from each other as well as from the instructor.
The Instructional Development Council makes "Creative Approaches to Teaching" awards once each semester. The aim is to recognize creative teaching and share the winning strategies across campus. Summaries are posted on the Council's Web site. Winners also receive a small honorarium.

UW-Green Bay percussion concert is Friday
GREEN BAY-The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Contemporary Percussion and Hand Drumming Ensembles will perform in concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9 in University Theater located in Theater Hall on the campus at 2420 Nicolet Dr.
Prof. Cheryl Grosso directs both groups.
The five-member Contemporary Percussion Ensemble will present five pieces, including compositions by such masters as John Bergamo and John Cage.
They'll open with "Music for Five Pieces of Wood," by Steve Reich, a piece with complex rhythmic patterns that Grosso says is "more challenging to the performers than the listeners." Composer Warren Benson, who died in October, is represented by "Three Pieces for Percussion," one of only two sets of percussion pieces that he wrote. Benson was a percussionist before turning to composition.
Bob Becker, percussionist with the renowned group Nexus, is the composer of "Turning Point," written in 1993 for Nexus. Grosso describes Becker as a "virtuoso xylophonist," and the piece makes use of several mallet keyboard instruments. Sophomore Arianne Timmers will join the Percussion Ensemble on piano.
The Ensemble also will perform John Bergamo's "#33," a quintet written to give the impression that it is performed by one multiple-percussion player.
They'll end their program with "Imaginary Landscape No. 2," by John Cage. According to Grosso, it's an important work in the percussion repertory. Dating to the early 1960s, it employs instruments such as tin cans, bass drum, sauce and frying pans, thunder sheet and conch shell. "It's one of those pieces that gives you the shivers, it's so powerful," says Grosso.
The Hand Drumming Ensemble will perform five Grosso compositions. "It's the most complex group of five works the Ensemble has played in one semester," she says. Their program includes her "Rhythm Chant GZ," Grosso's response to the 2001 terrorist attacks in New York (ground zero).
The 14-member Ensemble includes five percussion majors, four music majors who are not percussionists, and five non-music majors.
Tickets are $6 for adults and #3 for students. The numbers for tickets are (920) 465-2217 or (800) 328-8587.
