UW-Green Bay


On October 11, 2017, University of Wisconsin System President Ray Cross announced a proposal to join the UW College campuses with the university system. The plan calls for the UW-Marinette, UW-Manitowoc and UW-Sheboygan college campuses to be connected with UW-Green Bay. The Board of Regents approved this proposal at its November 9, 2017 meeting. UW-Green Bay has begun working with these three campuses to plan and implement the realignment with an effective date of July 1, 2018.
