Message from the CEO

On behalf of all my colleagues on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Manitowoc Campus, I’m delighted to welcome you to our webpage. UW-Green Bay, Manitowoc Campus is truly YOUR University of Wisconsin in Manitowoc and is a valuable and affordable educational resource for our community. It’s an exciting time to be a UW-Green Bay, Manitowoc student. On July 1, 2018 the Manitowoc Campus joined UW-Green Bay along with Sheboygan and Marinette to become 1 University with 4 campuses, 1 staff, 1 faculty, 1 student body, 1 mission and 1 vision. In Manitowoc, we strive to ensure that both the educational and the physical resources of the University are available to area residents.

Nestled on 40 acres along the breathtaking Lake Michigan shoreline, the Manitowoc Campus offers hands-on instruction from internationally respected professors and a start on more than 200 academic programs within the UW System. Community members enjoy concerts and lectures, attend art and theater performances and cheer for their favorite athletic teams. The campus and community celebrated the opening of a $7-million renovation project in February 2018 featuring state-of-the art updates to the library, a new science commons and renovations to art studios, science labs and classrooms. Our nationally recognized faculty are committed to research, teaching, service and extension across the life-span — from K-12 to higher education to adult and life-long learning.

UW-Green Bay, Manitowoc Campus has served the lakeshore of eastern Wisconsin for more than 50 years, helping generations of students to start their path toward a bachelor’s degree. And now, as part of UW-Green Bay, the Manitowoc Campus will be offering some four-year bachelor programs in the coming years. In addition to serving the needs of students for quality post-secondary education, we also serve community needs for continuing education, cultural events and faculty expertise. I welcome you to take advantage of every opportunity in the life of the Manitowoc Campus throughout your time here. Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly if I can be of any assistance as you begin your UW Journey!
