Alcohol & Drugs

Alcohol and Other Drugs Policy Statement

The University of Wisconsin - Green Bay is concerned about alcohol and other drug abuse. It views its role as primarily educational. The University provides support services and programs both for those whose drinking puts them at risk and for those who choose not to drink at all. When the use of alcohol or other drugs causes disorder, danger or damage, or involves an infraction of the la w, disciplinary action w ill be t aken. Illegal use of alcohol or drugs is subject to civil citations and disciplinary action which may include required community service, loss of University housing and/or suspension from the UW System. Students are responsible for their actions whether they are under the influence of a substance or not. Alcohol or drugs will never be the focus of any University-sponsored program or activity.


Civility & Inclusivity

Civility & Tolerance Statement

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is a multicultural community of people from diverse racial, ethnic, and class backgrounds, national origins, religious and political beliefs, sexual orientations, and physical abilities. Campus activities, programs, classes, lectures, etc. and everyday interactions are enriched by our acceptance of one another as we strive to learn from each other in an atmosphere of positive engagement and mutual respect.

As adults, we are responsible for our behavior and are fully accountable for our actions. We each must take responsibility for our awareness of racism, sexism, ageism, xenophobia, homophobia, and other forms of oppression.

Bigotry will not go unchallenged on this campus. No one has the right to denigrate another human being on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, etc. Verbal or written abuse, threats, harassment, intimidation, or violence against person or property will not be tolerated. In this context, alcohol or substance abuse will not be accepted as an excuse, reason, or rationale for such abuse, harassment, intimidation, or violence. Ignorance or "it was just a joke" is also not an excuse for such behaviors. Discriminatory, harassing or intimidating behaviors will be subject to the University’s disciplinary processes.

All who work, live, study, and teach in the UWGB community are here by choice and as part of that choice should be committed to these principles of civility and tolerance which are an integral part of UWGB’s Guiding Principles.


Complaints & Grievances

Bias Motivated Incident / Crime Reporting Form

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 leader s 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 he or she is 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.

Discrimination and Harassment Policy

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.

Computer Usage

Please see the Student Acceptable Use Policy for Technology


Email Policy

E-mail is an important method of communication at UW-Green Bay. Every student is given a University e-mail account to use. The UWGB student e-mail account is an official medium for University communication. Most important university information about registration, billing, financial aid and other important matters will be relayed to you via e-mail. Your professors may also communicate class information to you via e-mail, and information about campus events, programs of interest and federally mandated "right to know" reports will be sent to you electronically. Please check your university e-mail account regularly. Your failure to read and/or respond to official university e-mail communication does not absolve you of responsibility or consequences. Abuse of e-mail privileges such as sending unwanted messages to large groups (spamming) or sending hurtful e-mails to specific individuals is not acceptable and will be dealt with by the proper University officials. For more information, see the University Information Security Policies.

Finally, keep in mind that e-mail is but one form of communication, and not always the best or most appropriate one. There are times that face-to-face meetings are the best way to communicate.
