The University Name and Its Use

The institution’s full name — University of Wisconsin-Green Bay — is a good choice on first reference in most text. UW-Green Bay is acceptable on first reference when context or audience makes the identity clear. UW-Green Bay is always acceptable on second and subsequent references. The article “the” is not part of the formal name. The formal name includes a hyphen (no spaces), not a comma.‘UWGB’ HAS A PLACEThe acronym UWGB should be used for local, limited informal use. Those who know UW-Green Bay will naturally use the acronym in informal communication and conversation. It is not a good option for those who do not know about UW-Green Bay, and thus should be avoided in formal institutional communication and marketing materials.
