Welcome to the International Visiting Scholars Program!
The International Visiting Scholars Program is a joint initiative between the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and St. Norbert College.
The purpose of the program is to bring well-qualified professionals from other countries to lecture and teach on the two campuses and to provide educational benefits to the citizens of Green Bay and surrounding communities.
The overall objective is to improve international understanding by providing opportunities to learn from visiting scholars and for them to learn from us.
The International Visiting Scholars Program will be hosting two scholars in the 2014 Spring Semester. Dr. Wolfram von Scheliha, a historian from the University of Leipzig in Germany, will be in Green Bay from March 9 to March 30. Mohamed Abla, an Egyptian artist, will be here from March 28 to April 7. Both will be speaking to classes and leading seminars at UW-Green Bay and St. Norbert College and be involved in various community activities. Dr. von Scheliha will be presenting a lecture on Tuesday, March 18, at the Neville Public Museum on the topic “The Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989” (see the full announcement). This is a special opportunity for members of the Greater Green Bay community to recall or learn about this historic event.
