Dean's Welcome

As a graduate in the sciences from UW-Green Bay (91’ and 93’) and the founding Dean of the College of Science, Engineering and Technology (CSET), I want to welcome you to UW-Green Bay!  The College of Science, Engineering and Technology offers a diversity of majors and minors in the sciences and engineering technology, which will provide a solid foundation for career options in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) related fields.  Students in CSET have access to state of the art research facilities that include a scanning electron microscope and human cadavers, as well as the Cofrin Arboretum and other natural areas.  In addition, the College of Science, Engineering and Technology also includes the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity and the Environmental Management and Business Institute, which both provide additional research and internship opportunities on campus and in the community. 
As Dean, I am particularly proud of the faculty in CSET, who are accomplished teachers and scholars, and provide high quality instruction and hands-on learning and research experiences to students in both laboratory and field settings.  This teaching includes a partnership with the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), where faculty from Human Biology provide direct instruction for MCW students.  Faculty in CSET have also consistently obtained funding from local, state and federal sources to support campus and community based research projects and I would urge you to learn more about student research opportunities associated with these projects.  Our faculty also believe that being a complete student involves more than just classroom instruction.  Therefore, we encourage students to become involved in the extracurricular activities available, including student honor societies, student organizations and study abroad opportunities. 
In summary, the College of Science, Engineering and Technology has high quality faculty and offers a range of educational opportunities for students interested in science and engineering technology.  I truly appreciated my time as a student in the sciences at UWGB and now look forward to providing the same opportunities to our current and future students.
