Annual Security Report

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is a safety leader among Wisconsin college campuses, and we work hard to keep safety a priority on our campus. Become an informed member of our campus community to protect yourself, and others, and to help keep UW-Green Bay a welcoming place.

To view the Annual Security Report, please visit the University Police website.

Drug Free Schools & Communities Act

Alcohol and drug abuse are often perceived to be a common part of college life. UW-Green Bay takes a number of approaches to prevent or discourage alcohol or drug abuse by our students.

One approach is to provide information early and let students make informed choices about their behavior. This information is designed to comply with the requirements of the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989. If you would like further information, please contact the Dean of Students office (465-2152) or the Wellness Center (465-2380).

Missing Student Notification

Campus safety and security is goal all of us need to work together to achieve. From locking our car doors to reporting suspicious behavior, an active role needs to be taken to protect both ourselves, and the rest of the campus community. But sometimes accidents happen. A trip leads to an injury. A car ride becomes a car accident. For this reason we ask each student to review their Emergency Contact Information in SIS. If you have not already entered at least one emergency contact person, please do so now.

In addition to your emergency contact, the university is now required by federal law to request a "Missing Person" contact. This contact person would only be notified if it was determined you were missing for 24 hours. For minors, the default will be to notify your parents unless you have been legally emancipated from them. For all other students, the university will assume you want your emergency contact person(s) notified unless you enter a "Missing Person" contact into SIS. This information will remain confidential and only shared should the need arise to make such a contact.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Dean of Students Office (465-2152) or University Police (465-2300).

Civility & Inclusivity

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay (UWGB) is an institution of higher learning where the safety of its multifaceted community of people is expected and enforced. Campus activities, programs, classes, lectures, and everyday interactions are enriched by our inclusion of one another as we strive to learn from each other in an atmosphere of positive engagement and mutual respect.

As campus community members, we are responsible for our behaviors and are fully accountable for our actions. We must each take responsibility for our awareness of discrimination and its many forms (i.e. racism, sexism, ageism, xenophobia, transphobia, homophobia, etc.). The concept of campus civility and inclusiveness can be demonstrated in hallways, classrooms, student housing, and the workplace environment.

Bigotry will be addressed on this campus. Discriminatory, harassing, or intimidating behaviors will be subject to the University’s disciplinary processes. As a campus community we will not engage in harassment or discrimination against another human being on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender and/or gender identity or expression, marital or parental status, genetic information, national origin, ethnicity, citizenship status, veteran or military status (including disabled veteran, recently separated veteran, other protected veteran, or Armed Forces service medal veteran status), age, or disability. Verbal or written abuse, threats, harassment, intimidation, or violence against persons or property will not be tolerated. In this context, alcohol or substance abuse will not be accepted as a defense for such abuse, harassment, intimidation, or violence. Absence of malice, intent or “it is just a joke” is also not a defense for such behaviors. As a campus community we expect that all members engage in the resources provided to better understand all aspects of discriminations and harassment.

Nothing in this document is intended to stifle academic freedom (as defined in the UWGB Faculty Handbook) or free speech rights. Instructors and students retain the right to use words and make critical arguments that some may find offensive but that do not rise to the level of or exhibit the same quality of action as discrimination or harassment, which are serious offenses that should be identified based on objective criteria consistent with established law and policy. UWGB values the free exchange of ideas and perspectives critical to the learning and development of our students, faculty, and staff.

All who work, live, study, teach, and visit the UWGB community are here by choice and as part of that choice should be committed to these principles of civility and inclusivity which are an integral part of UWGB’s Strategic Mission and the Harassment and Discrimination Policy. 

If you have experienced or witnessed an event or behavior that violates this statement, you can report in a number of ways:

 Complete a Bias Incident Report
 Follow procedures indicated in the Harassment and Discrimination Policy.
 File a Complaint or Grievance.
 Report in person to one of the following: Vice Chancellor for Inclusivity and Student Affairs, Director of Inclusive Excellence and Pride Center, Title IX Coordinator, Director of Human Resources, Affirmative Action Officer, or University Police

Complaints & Grievances

The Dean of Students Office welcomes your comments and will help you to resolve differences which may occur. Differences of opinion and misunderstandings can occur in any community and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has procedures which ensure your right to file a grievance or make a complaint.

Academic Grievance
Students who have grievances related to course grades, conduct of classes or other course matters should address those complaints first with the instructor of the course. If the student is not satisfied with the resolution, the grievance can then be taken to the chairperson of the appropriate academic department and, if resolution is not achieved there, the student may then go to the appropriate academic dean.

Non-Academic Grievance
Students who have grievances related to University staff should first address those complaints directly with the individual. If the student is not satisfied, the grievance can then be taken to the appropriate supervisor of that department and, if resolution is not achieved there, the student may then go to the Dean of Students Office.

Student Government Association (SGA)
SGA is made up of student leaders elected by the student body. They provide the student’s point of view to university officials at all levels. If you have an idea for a way to improve the University or are concerned with the status quo, SGA can be a good place to start making a difference. Student involvement is always welcome so if you really want to make a difference, become a member of SGA or one of it s many branches.

Discrimination and Harassment
Discrimination and harassment have no place on our campus. The intent of harassment is to create a hostile or demeaning environment through inappropriate actions. Harassment can be verbal or physical in nature. Annoyances, threats, demands for favors or constant calling or e-mailing are just some ways individuals can be harassed. If a student feels they are being harassed in a general or sexual manner, they should contact the Dean of Students office at (920) 465-2152.

Discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability or sexual orientation is not acceptable behavior at UW-Green Bay. Our campus works hard to foster acceptance and understanding of all those who bring the many different forms of diversity to our campus. If you observe or are the target of any form of discrimination, please contact the Dean of Students office at (920) 465-2152 for assistance in resolving the matter.

Students with Disabilities
Students who have concerns about physical accommodations or violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act should contact the ADA Coordinator at (920) 465-2380. If you need to arrange for academic accommodations, contact Student Accessibility Services at (920) 465-2841 to discuss what resources are available to assist in your academic success.

Freedom of Expression
The University of Wisconsin Board of Regents made an intentional statement when they passed the Commitment to Academic Freedom and Freedom of Expression policy (Regent Policy 4-21). They wanted to make sure there was room on every UW campus for speakers to state their points of view, popular or unpopular.  Along with this freedom came expectations for what will happen to those who try to interfere with the right of another to express themselves.  “Any student who has twice been found responsible for misconduct that materially and substantially disrupted the free expression of others at any time during the student’s enrollment shall be suspended for a minimum of one semester.” (UWS BOR Policy 4-21).
