Moving news: Office locations to change throughout 2005

In an effort to use space more efficiently, some UW-Green Bay programs and offices will be on the move from now until the end of the fall semester. The changes will create space for Athletics administration during construction of the Kress Events Center, improve delivery of student services, and begin to make room for expansion of the Library. Relocation costs will be held to a minimum.

Athletics, International Education to Rose Hall —
The Athletics Department will occupy most office space on Rose Hall's third floor by the end of the fall semester. Classrooms on that floor will remain in use for academic purposes. The Office of International Education also will move to the third floor of Rose Hall, from Student Services 1900.

Changes affect Dean of Students Office —
Other moves in Student Services are aimed at providing one-stop delivery of services and greater efficiency. The Dean of Students office will relocate from SS 1905 to the space vacated by the Office of International Education. Additional changes will be announced when the Student Services staff completes a process of redefining space needs and functions.

Space Grant, Emeritus faculty, Purchasing among those on the move —
Also look for these moves in the weeks and months ahead:

• The Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium from ES 107 to ES 301.

• Consolidation of Natural and Applied Sciences and Human Biology Emeritus faculty in ES 307.

• The Purchasing Office from ES 109 to a portion of the former Wisconsin Public Television suite in IS 1038.

• The Controller's Office from the 8th floor of the Cofrin Library to ES 109.

Human Resources and Payroll from the 8th floor of the Cofrin Library to ES 105-107.

• The offices of the Provost and the Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance trading places on the 8th floor of the Cofrin Library. This office swap will bring the Provost closer to the Secretary of the Faculty and Academic Staff. In addition, the campus Safety and Risk Manager, now in ES 109, will join the Business and Finance staff.

Unreal! Theatre program unveils a different 'Midsummer Night's Dream'

The UW-Green Bay Theater program's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" opening this Friday has an interesting take on Shakespeare: Celtic folklore as a useful framework for a play about love and magic. Says director John Mariano. "In the folklore there are 'thin places' where the separation between the world you can see and the unseen is 'thin,' and where the unseen world can affect you." Mix in a set by Jeffrey Entwistle that blurs the line between real and unreal... and you have what's described at http://www.uwgb.edu/univcomm/news/archive/2005apr.htm#dream.

Opera Workshop presents 'Cosi Fan Tutti'

Also playing on campus later this week is a UW-Green Bay Opera Workshop production of Mozart's final comic opera, "Cosi Fan Tutti." All you need to know about that is director John Plier's promise that "it is a chance to hear terrifically beautiful music with unusually fine young singers." See http://www.uwgb.edu/univcomm/news/archive/2005apr.htm#opera.

More confirmation it's a small world

Nostalgia and good humor were the mainstays of Alumni Awards Night on Saturday (April 16) in the Phoenix Room. Distinguished Alumni Award winner Craig Cobane '90 shared a story that illustrates the scope and depth of UW-Green Bay's reach. Cobane, a professor currently on loan to a federal bureau assisting the Defense Department with issues of global peacekeeping and humanitarian aid, recalls a recent example (paraphrased): "In recent preparation for a presentation on the future of terrorism, I was in discussion with a colleague at the Pentagon... He said, "There's one guy in Green Bay, Wisconsin, that is an expert on the subject. I said, "You don't mean Marty Greenberg?" He said, "Yes, that's the guy!" And I said, "He was my college political science professor..."
