Two receive Adult Degree scholarships

GREEN BAY - Two students in the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay's Adult Degree Program have been awarded the program's Patricia L. Hoppe Scholarships.

Jo-An Rintamaki, De Pere, and Maureen O'Shea, Shawano, each will receive a scholarship of $750 for the 2007 spring semester. The scholarship recognizes nontraditional students who exhibit 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 died, 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 students who otherwise would not have the opportunity because of work, family or other responsibilities.

The program's students attend half-day Saturday classes once a month and work independently between classes. Some classes are offered online, or through audio and videotape.

For more information about UW-Green Bay's Adult Degree Program, call (920) 465-2423 or visit the program's Web site at www.uwgb.edu/adultdegrees.

Textbook by UW-Green Bay faculty
member takes new look at world history

GREEN BAY - A University of Wisconsin-Green Bay history professor has drawn from his vast knowledge of world history and his extensive experience teaching the subject to produce an informative and accessible world history textbook.

"Societies, Networks, and Transitions," published by Houghton Mifflin, is the product of 10 years of research and writing by Craig Lockard, UW-Green Bay professor of Social Change and Development.

The textbook encourages students of history to think about the broad implications of people, events and changes throughout world history.

"The book is pretty much what I was hoping for," Lockard said. "I have to concede that I didn't think it would take me 10 years to finish it."

The textbook, to be used primarily in college freshman and sophomore world history classes and high school Advanced Placement classes, covers history "from the Big Bang to the Baghdad bombings," according to Lockard. The text connects different regions through global themes and features a strong focus on culture and religion.

Lockard's book emphasizes more parts of the world - from Europe, Asia and Africa to North and South America than most previous world history textbooks have.

"Most of the textbooks were what I called Europe-plus or the West and the rest," he said.

Comparative mini-chapters at the end of each part of the textbook link different regions of the world and help students understand how people, places and periods are interconnected.

The book also includes illustrated profiles of key players throughout history, some of whom were influential while not being particularly well-known.

Lockard said teaching at UW-Green Bay helped him write a book that will have great value for students who read it.

"I teach the kinds of students this book is aimed at," he said. "It's easier for me to communicate with these students. You get a lot more students planning to go into teaching or education."

The textbook has received praise for its attention to both ancient and modern history. One reviewer said no previous world history textbook has had as much coverage of the 20th century. Another wrote that it "helps make past societies come to life as vibrant and distinct."

Lockard is Ben J. and Joyce Rosenberg professor and chair of history at UW-Green Bay. He has been at UW-Green Bay since 1975. He has taught courses on Asian, African, comparative and world history.

Lockard also has taught at the State University of New York-Buffalo, State University of New York-Stony Brook, and the University of Bridgeport. He twice served as a Fulbright-Hays professor at the University of Malaya in Malaysia.

His published books, articles, essays, and reviews cover a wide range of topics, including world history, Southeast Asian history, politics and society, the Vietnam War, and folk, popular and world music.

Lockard was one of the founders of the World History Association an organization that promotes teaching, research and publication of world history and served as its first secretary. He has lived and traveled widely in Asia, Africa, and Europe.

UW-Green Bay signs pledge to address
impact of global warming

GREEN BAY - The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay today (Dec. 20) pledged to take a leadership role in addressing the critical issue of global warming.

UW-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard signed the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment, a pledge to develop a long-range plan to reduce and ultimately neutralize greenhouse gas emissions on the campus.

The pledge also commits colleges and universities to educating the next generation of leaders and professionals and showing communities and institutions the competitive payoff for a proactive approach to the issue.

UW-Green Bay's pledge builds on a series of recent efforts by the University focusing on sustainability, energy conservation and environmental awareness.

Shepard said he is proud that UW-Green Bay will join colleges and universities across the country in providing leadership related to sustainability and environmental protection.

"This pledge is one more way for UW-Green Bay, long known for its commitment to environmental awareness, to express its desire for and commitment to a sustainable future," the Chancellor said.

The Presidents Climate Commitment is modeled after the U.S. Mayors Climate Protection Agreement. It seeks to identify at least 200 college and university presidents who will become charter signatories at a major public summit in June 2007.

The pledge commits institutions to numerous actions in pursuit of climate neutrality, including the use of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) silver standards in all new campus construction.

Dean Rodeheaver, UW-Green Bay assistant chancellor for planning and budget, said UW-Green Bay is using the LEED standards in the newest campus construction projects: the Kress Events Center and expansion of the University Union. The state of Wisconsin has adopted similar guidelines for all new buildings, he said.

The pledge is consistent with recommendations on sustainability included in the new UW-Green Bay Master Plan, or long-range development plan. That plan also led to the appointment in July of a permanent Campus Sustainability Committee to address issues related to minimizing the long- and short-term impacts of the University's actions on the environment.

In September, Gov. Jim Doyle recognized UW-Green Bay's leadership on energy efficiency and sustainability issues by selecting the University as one of four UW System campuses to take part in a pilot program to make the campuses energy independent within the next five years.

Rodeheaver, coordinator of the Campus Sustainability Committee, said the committee will soon appoint a working group to focus on campus energy issues.

UW-Green Bay students have played a crucial role in committing the University to a sustainable future. Only 10 days ago, students in UW-Green Bay's Environmental Science and Policy graduate program presented ideas for making UW-Green Bay more sustainable through alternative transportation, energy conservation and other measures.

UW-Green Bay graduates urged
to believe in themselves

GREEN BAY - University of Wisconsin-Green Bay graduates were told at mid-year commencement ceremonies Saturday (Dec. 16) that they will find future success if they love what they do and believe in themselves.

Commencement speaker Mark King, a 1981 graduate of UW-Green Bay and now president and CEO of TaylorMade-adidas Golf, said the graduates will get through the difficult times if they love what they do.

"What I've learned in my life is that loving what you do is the only way to go," he said. "Search for what you love. Find what you love and pursue it."

About 380 students were eligible to receive their diplomas at commencement Saturday at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts. It was the 37th December commencement in UW-Green Bay's history.

With the awarding of diplomas Saturday, UW-Green Bay has conferred nearly 24,000 degrees, dating to the first commencement in 1970.

King, a Green Bay native who is recognized as one of the world's most prominent golf executives, said he found success in the business world because he believed in himself. That's a lesson for all graduates, he said.

"Even in the face of failure you have to believe in yourself," he said. "You have to believe there is greatness inside of you. If you don't believe that, who will?"

The graduates also received words of encouragement from graduating class speaker Carolina Bacelis, Green Bay. Bacelis described her journey from Merida, a city in southern Mexico, to her college graduation.

She urged her classmates to remember the people who helped the graduates develop their confidence, leadership skills and ability to learn.

"In many ways and at many levels, our experience at UW-Green Bay has built and reinforced connections that are an important part of who we are and who we will become," she said.

Bacelis, who received her degree in environmental science and biology, also said it is now the graduates' turn to be mentors, counselors, role models and leaders.

"We can thank the really great people who have supported us by showing our ability to answer when we are called to assist and guide," she said.

UW-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard, who presided over the commencement ceremonies, said a diploma is not the most important gift from the University to the graduates. The most valued gift, he said, is the gift of giving back.

"The rewards will be lifelong if you commit to a love of learning, continually connecting learning to life, and putting your higher education to important purposes," Shepard said.

Other commencement highlights included:

the awarding of the UW-Green Bay Alumni Association's Outstanding Student Award to Ellie M. (Roets) Reich. Reich, of Merrill, is graduating with highest honors and with a major in history and a minor in education.

Reich has been a lab coordinator and tutor for promising but at-risk local high school students enrolled in the Upward Bound program. Her student teaching assignments at Green Bay East and Denmark high schools were notable for the level of responsibility and her contributions to classroom innovation. She also was active throughout her college career in student government and campus life activities.

the awarding of the Chancellor's Award, UW-Green Bay's highest community honor, to Donald F. Harden. Harden spent 25 years at UW-Green Bay as an administrator and faculty member. He completed his academic career in 1994 as UW-Green Bay's associate chancellor, with the rank of full professor.

After leaving UW-Green Bay, Harden was appointed by Bellin Health Systems as founding president of its fund-raising foundation. He also has devoted countless hours to volunteer service in support of community initiatives. He has served on numerous agency and corporate boards, including the seven-member Executive Committee of the Green Bay Packers.

UW, technical colleges sign
credit-transfer agreements

MANITOWOC - Demonstrating a strong commitment to regional collaboration, University of Wisconsin campuses at Green Bay and Oshkosh have signed general studies transfer agreements with four area technical colleges.

The agreements will make it easier and more efficient for students at Northeast Wisconsin, Fox Valley, Lakeshore and Moraine Park Technical Colleges to transfer general studies credits to UW-Oshkosh and UW-Green Bay.

The transfer agreements were announced today at the Third Annual Northeastern Wisconsin Economic Development Summit in Manitowoc. They are the latest of many recent credit-transfer accords signed by technical colleges and UW two- and four-year campuses across Northeastern Wisconsin.

The agreements will help provide a more seamless public higher education system in the New North region of Northeastern Wisconsin. New North is a collaboration of 18 counties committed to shared goals of job growth, economic vitality and a high quality of life.

Under the agreements, a 32-credit core of courses at the technical colleges will meet specific general education requirements at UW-Green Bay and UW-Oshkosh.

Campus leaders said the new agreements will expand educational opportunities and enable the schools to better serve the needs of the region's citizens. By helping to increase the number of individuals with college degrees, the effort also will strengthen the New North economy.

"Our area is in economic transition as employers seek more employees with bachelor's degrees," said UW-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard. "A more seamless system of higher education builds brighter futures for all of us who are proudly a part of the New North region."

Northeast Wisconsin Technical College President Jeffrey Rafn said the agreements will strengthen the science and math knowledge base in the region.

"The agreements will lead to a workforce with diverse academic and technical skills to support an ever-changing economy," Rafn said.

"Northeastern Wisconsin has lost 30,000 manufacturing jobs in a decade, but many of these jobs could be replaced by higher-paying positions if we can provide individuals with a four-year degree to fill them," said UW-Oshkosh Chancellor Richard H. Wells. "These agreements demonstrate a strong, collaborative effort to meet the needs of a new age."

Moraine Park President Gayle Hytrek said additional flexibility and options are important for students who come to the college with a wide variety of career goals.

""This is just one example of how new regional collaborations can be beneficial to the technical colleges, the universities and, most of all, our students," Hytrek said.

The UW and Wisconsin Technical College System institutions involved with the new transfer agreements all are members of the Northeast Wisconsin Educational Resource Alliance (NEWERA). NEWERA is a consortium of the 13 public colleges and universities dedicated to fostering partnerships to better serve the region's educational and economic needs.

GREEN BAY - A University of Wisconsin-Green Bay faculty member with expertise in marketing will discuss what an enhanced image means to the Green Bay area and its businesses at the next lecture in UW-Green Bay's "Downtown Third Thursdays" lecture series.

Donald McCartney, senior lecturer in Business Administration, will give a public presentation Thursday, Dec. 14 on "Showcasing your assets: the Northeast Wisconsin/Green Bay 'brand.'"

McCartney's talk is from 11:15 to 11:55 a.m. at the Baylake Bank Learning Center in the Baylake Bank City Center. The center is located at 301 N. Adams St. in downtown Green Bay. The talk is free and open to the public.

Registration in advance is requested due to space limitations. To register, contact Bob Skorczewski at UW-Green Bay by phone at (920) 465-2320 or by e-mail at skorczeb@uwgb.edu.

McCartney, who has taught marketing courses for the past 23 years, will explore what Green Bay and the surrounding area have done to showcase the community's strengths and what needs to be done to maintain and strengthen the area's image.

According to McCartney, cities like Green Bay are facing strong competition for businesses and employees. Attracting college graduates to the area from other states and regions is an ongoing challenge.

McCartney's lecture is the third of UW-Green Bay's "Downtown Third Thursdays" series. The December lecture is being held the second Thursday of the month to minimize conflict with holiday events.

The series provides an opportunity for the community to take part in lifelong learning and learn more about Green Bay's University of Wisconsin. It also aims to enhance the city's downtown and strengthen connections between UW-Green Bay and the community.

The "Downtown Third Thursdays" series is sponsored by the Office of the Chancellor at UW-Green Bay, the UW-Green Bay Alumni Association, Downtown Green Bay, Inc., Olde Main Street, Inc., and On Broadway, Inc. in collaboration with the UW-Green Bay Division of Outreach and Adult Access.

More information about the series is available online at www.uwgb.edu/downtown.

The concert, which will feature many seasonal works, begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Weidner Center's Cofrin Family Hall.

Randall Meder, director of choral activities at UW-Green Bay, will conduct the performance. Accompaniment will be provided by Professor Emeritus Arthur Cohrs on organ, Janet Osterburg on piano and a double brass choir made up of members of the UW-Green Bay Wind Symphony.

The 40-voice Concert Choir will open the program with a set of pieces written by Thomas Morley and Thomas Weelkes, two of the leading English Madrigalists of the Renaissance. The choir also will perform works by J.S. Bach and Felix Mendelssohn and two traditional carols arranged by English composer John Rutter.

The 50-voice Phoenix Chorale will perfom a motet by Bach entitled "Lobet den Herrn, alle Heiden," and shorter works by Renaissance composer Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck and 20th century composers Benjamin Britten and Randall Thompson. The concert will conclude with Daniel Pinkham's "Christmas Cantata," a three-movement setting of traditional Latin Christmas texts written for mixed voices accompanied by a double brass choir and organ.

Meder, a native of Wisconsin, returned to the state after three years of graduate studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and five years as director of choral activities at North Carolina State University in Raleigh.

Tickets for the choral concert are $7 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens.
