Improve Student Success and Retention

Support the whole student from their experience in the classroom to co-curricular activities. Student success is our top priority regardless if the student is residential or a commuter, traditional age or starting later in life.

What We've Done

  • Expanded our certificate offerings to help provide professional development in a shorter timeframe.
  • Reimagined our advising model so professional advisors offer both career and academic guidance. Advisors are solely committed to student success and are assigned based on majors.

Where We're Going

  • Ensure those who enter UW-Green Bay reach their educational goals before leaving us.
  • Start measuring and tracking retention in ways that make sense to an access institution.
  • Become the largest provider of non-credit offerings in the State of Wisconsin.
  • Provide fluid options for students to enter, exit and reenter higher education when their lives allow for it.
  • Provide career coaching for all to help navigate pathways to higher education.
