Advisory Council

Strengthen Ties

As an institution on the rise, both in enrollment and responding to the educational attainment needs of the region, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has turned to its alumni for advice. The University recently established an alumni board of graduates who have gone out into the world and made an impact as citizens, parents and career minded professionals.

Responsibilities will include offering advice and counsel to the Office of the Chancellor and the Alumni Office on strategic issues of importance to the University. These alumni will contribute to the University’s success, impact public education in a meaningful way, expand their network, and meet people with interests like their own.

“One of our strongest assets as a University is our alumni,” said Chancellor Michael Alexander. “UW-Green Bay graduates make a difference every day in communities across our region, state, nation, and the world. We need their insights and experience to help UW-Green Bay continue to grow and influence the next generation of graduates. As a regional public university, inviting community input is a vital component to UW-Green Bay’s mission of serving as a resource to the region.”

The Board is not a legally governing body and does not set policies, manage fiduciary activities, or make personnel decisions. The main purpose is to work together with University leadership on strategic issues. A wide range of voices and perspectives were recruited. Members are limited to serving one full three-year term. Accepting this important role is:
