Name Badges

Name tag protocol

  • Name badges should be provided to all guests who respond they will attend the event
  • Walk-up guests should be provided with a name badge when they arrive
  • Name tags/badges are correctly worn on the right side so the person shaking hands or greeting has easy eye contact with both the person and the name tag
  • Faculty and staff should always wear their UW-Green Bay name tag at events

UW-Green Bay standard name badge

The UW-Green Bay standard name badge should be the only name badge used at all University events for anyone that does not have an issued UW-Green Bay name tag.
