UWGB Official Press Releases

UW-Green Bay adjusts schedule for ’50 Years’ celebration on Sept. 2

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has announced a revised schedule for Wednesday, Sept. 2, and a more detailed lineup of campus and community events marking the golden anniversary of the day in 1965 when Gov. Warren Knowles signed legislation creating a new four-year university for Northeastern Wisconsin.

Among the highlights:

• The “50 Years of UW-Green Bay” kickoff celebration will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 2, outdoors at Phoenix Park, located adjacent to the University Union, the campus housing complex and the Mauthe Center. The informal event, open to all, invites alumni, employees and other friends of the University to join in an expanded version of the traditional “first day of school” cookout for returning students. The cookout also promises music, games and more. Admission is free.

• On the same evening (Wednesday, Sept. 2), UW-Green Bay alumni, faculty and staff will “Turn the Market Green” with a special UWGB night at the downtown Farmers Market. Attendees are invited to wear their Phoenix Green and to visit the UW-Green Bay booth near the corner of Broadway and Hubbard streets between 5 and 8 p.m. Music by the faculty band Gypsy Trip, sampling of Titletown Brewing Company’s commemorative Phoenix Brew and root beer, and drawings, giveaways and special guests will be among the attractions. Admission is free.

• An invitation-only reunion of members of the graduating class of 1970 — UW-Green Bay’s first year awarding bachelor’s degrees — will take place on campus, mid-day.

(Please note: The campus kickoff event has been rescheduled from the initial announcement in March. Previously listed as a formal program at 11 a.m., the “50 Years” celebration is shifted to a 4 p.m. event of a more casual nature. The change avoids a time conflict following announcement of the community’s traditional Packers Welcome-Back Luncheon for that same date. UW-Green Bay event organizers say they tweaked their Sept. 2 lineup to allow friends, local dignitaries and alumni the flexibility to attend both events.)

Activities throughout the 2015-16 academic year will be tied to the theme “50 Years of UW-Green Bay.” A second major event this fall will be the annual Alumni Reunion Days weekend on Oct. 16 and 17. The University is reaching out to current and former students, employees and community members who might have photos, mementos or memories to share.

UW-Green Bay Chancellor appointed to influential NCAA committee

gary.miller-webaGary L. Miller, chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, has been appointed a member of the NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions. He will begin his three-year term Aug. 1, 2015.

Miller is the first sitting Division I president or chancellor to serve on the committee, the NCAA has confirmed.

“I consider it a great honor to be chosen to serve in this capacity,” Miller said. “I am a firm believer in the value of Division I athletics to UW-Green Bay, the NCAA’s mission as an organization, and our shared duty as member institutions to help ensure academic and competitive integrity.”

The Division I Committee on Infractions is an independent group composed of representatives from the membership and the public charged with deciding NCAA infractions cases. The committee reviews prehearing procedural matters, conducts hearings, finds the facts of the case, and determines what, if any, penalties are appropriate. After it issues a decision, the committee monitors institutions on probation to ensure compliance with penalties and terms of probation. The committee also hears appeals of Level III decisions issued by NCAA staff.

Miller’s appointment as a current chancellor reflects the NCAA’s ongoing, stated efforts to increase presidential involvement in all facets of the NCAA governance structure.

Since 2011 the NCAA has gradually expanded the committee from 10 to 24 members. Previously regarded as one of the NCAA’s more time-intensive assignments — which tended to discourage top administrators from volunteering — the committee can now use its larger size to create panels of five to seven randomly-chosen members. The change allows cases to be heard more quickly and efficiently with fewer burdens on individual committee members.

Members serve three-year terms and can be reappointed for a maximum of three terms. In addition to participating in those cases assigned them, members convene as the full Committee on Infractions at least twice annually to review cases across panels and check for consistency in the way NCAA guidelines are applied.

Jon LeCrone, who heads the intercollegiate athletics conference that includes UW-Green Bay, describes Miller’s appointment as prestigious recognition for the chancellor, the University, Green Bay Athletics and the league.

“We are thrilled for Chancellor Miller’s appointment to the NCAA Infractions Committee,” says LeCrone, Horizon League commissioner. “Since arriving at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, he has been an excellent addition to our Board of Directors, working on behalf of Green Bay and the Horizon League’s student-athletes. I know that he will represent Green Bay and the Horizon League well on the committee.”

The committee chair is Gregory Sankey, commissioner of the Southeastern Conference. Other prominent members include Conference USA commissioner Britton Banowsky; Michael F. Adams, former president of the University of Georgia, former University of Minnesota athletics director Joel Maturi; and former Georgia Tech basketball coach Bobby Cremins. Nominations to serve come from the NCAA membership and include academic and athletics administrators past and present, independent professionals with relevant legal, athletics or academic experience, and former coaches.

Miller, who assumed his duties as UW-Green Bay chancellor on Aug. 1, 2014, has extensive career experience as an administrator and educator, all with NCAA Division I universities.

He came to Green Bay from the chancellorship at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. He was previously provost and vice president for academic affairs and research at Wichita State University, Dean of the College of Pacific at the University of the Pacific, and a faculty member at both Weber State University and Mississippi State University.

The chancellor serves on the local board of directors of the Greater Green Bay Chamber, as well as on the Executive Committee of the Council of Urban and Metropolitan Universities, the Board of Directors of The Campus Compact, the Workforce Development Panel of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), and a national steering committee focused on post-collegiate outcomes.

Miller’s appointment to the infractions committee is UW-Green Bay’s second high-profile NCAA appointment this summer. Director of Athletics Mary Ellen Gillespie was notified earlier this year she will become the first individual from any Horizon League school to serve on the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee, starting Sept. 1.


Van Gruensven named interim vice chancellor for business, finance

Sheryl L. Van Gruensven, director of human resources for UW-Green Bay, will assume additional duties as the institution’s interim vice chancellor for business and finance.

UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary L. Miller announced the selection of Van Gruensven to fill the leadership position to be vacated by Kelly J. Franz, who is retiring after a three-decade UW System career that has included 25 years with UW-Green Bay, the last three and one-half as vice chancellor.

Van Gruensven’s appointment as interim vice chancellor takes effect Aug. 16. She is described by Miller as “highly respected throughout the UW System and a key leader at UWGB.”

“We are extraordinarily fortunate to have such a talented and experienced executive in our midst who can step into this essential role at this critical time in the history of the university,” the chancellor added.

The vice chancellor for business and finance reports directly to the chancellor and is the institution’s lead administrator for budgeting, accounting and fiscal control. The position also oversees roughly 175 employees and a range of business operations and services, including buildings and grounds, facilities planning, the controller’s office, purchasing, risk management, human resources, the campus bookstore, the student union, the campus golf course, motor pool, parking and public safety.

Van Gruensven has served as the University’s director of human resources and affirmative action since 2005. With administrative consolidation necessitated by state budget cuts, she will continue to hold responsibilities in those areas.

Van Gruensven joined UW-Green Bay in 2004 from a position as human resource manager with a Wausau law firm. She earned her bachelor’s in human resources management from Upper Iowa University, and her master’s degree from Silver Lake College, Manitowoc.

She has previous experience as UW-Green Bay’s interim vice chancellor for business and finance. She served in that capacity for several months in early 2012 before Franz accepted appointment to the position.


UW-Green Bay announces spring semester honors

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has made public the names of students receiving honors for the spring 2015 semester. Students who earn a 4.0 grade point average receive highest honors, those earning 3.99 to 3.75 receive high honors, and students earning 3.74 to 3.50 receive honors.

Acknowledgement of academic excellence for a semester is awarded by the academic Dean. These honors are awarded on a semester basis and are denoted on the academic transcript in the specific semester awarded. Students are eligible for the Dean’s List (semester honors) if they are enrolled in a minimum of 12 graded credits for the semester. If any courses of the 12 total credits are graded as pass/fail or audited basis a student would not be eligible for this designation.

Pfeifer named UW-Green Bay’s Associate Chancellor for External Affairs

Chancellor Gary L. Miller announced today (Monday, June 22) the appointment of Ronald T. Pfeifer of Green Bay as the new Associate Chancellor for External Affairs and Chief of Staff for the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.

Pfeifer will join the UW-Green Bay administrative team on July 23rd.

Ronald Pfeifer

Ronald Pfeifer

He currently serves as Associate General Counsel for Schneider National Inc., North America’s largest truckload carrier, headquartered in Green Bay. He has held that position since 2013 following 28 years as an employment-law attorney with the local office of the statewide firm Godfrey & Kahn, S.C.

“We are extremely fortunate to have recruited such a distinguished professional and effective community leader to this important position,” Chancellor Miller said of Pfeifer. “The experience Ron brings to this reshaped position will be essential for us to achieve our goal as a highly engaged, value-adding partner in this region.”

The Associate Chancellor for External Affairs element of Pfeifer’s title is new at UW-Green Bay and indicative of Miller’s priority in having the University be more aggressive in pursuing innovation, transformation and service to the region. Also factoring into the administrative restructuring are pending retirements and consolidation necessitated by steep funding reductions in the 2015-17 state budget.

Pfeifer will take over chief-of-staff duties currently held by Dan Spielmann who will retire in early July to conclude a UW-Green Bay career that began in 1976. Spielmann, an attorney, serves as the institution’s legislative liaison and as an adviser to the chancellor on legal matters. Pfeifer will assume additional responsibility with formal designation as managing director of the chancellor’s leadership cabinet and liaison to the Council of Trustees’ Advocacy Committee.

As Associate Chancellor, Pfeifer’s expanded responsibilities also will include full or shared administrative oversight of campus wide units including:

• Weidner Center for the Performing Arts
• Office of Marketing and University Communication
• Phoenix Athletics (in conjunction with the Chancellor)
• Office of Adult Access (in conjunction with the Provost)

Miller said an important new function of Pfeifer’s position will be organizing and extending the University’s community engagement and networking activities. Pfeifer sees a strong base on which to build.

“I have been a resident of this community for thirty-one years and during that time it has been my observation that UW-Green Bay plays an important role in the life of our community. It affects the lives of Northeast Wisconsin residents in virtually every way,” Pfeifer said. “I’ve always been grateful for the public education that was available to me and I want to do what I can to see that today’s young people have the same wonderful opportunities.”

Pfeifer grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska and attended the University of Nebraska where he pursued a liberal arts course of study and graduated with a double major in philosophy and political science. He earned his law degree at Northwestern Law School and was appointed to the editorial board of the Northwestern Law Review.

He began his professional practice with firms in Indianapolis and Minneapolis before relocating to Green Bay in 1984 to join what would become the Green Bay office of Godfrey & Kahn. He retired in 2011 and spent most of the next year as a consultant to the Labor Relations Institute working with clients nationwide on best practices, legal considerations and positive employee relations.

Pfeifer and his wife, Suzy, are longtime advocates and financial supporters of UW-Green Bay though neither is an alumnus.

In 2012, the Pfeifers endowed a Phuture Phoenix Scholarship to help students at Green Bay East High School involved in the Institute for the Fine Arts to attend UW-Green Bay. The Pfeifers are active supporters of Phoenix Athletics. Ron has served on the board of directors for both the Phoenix Fund and the former Fast Break Club.

Ron Pfeifer was appointed a board member with the University’s Founders Association in 2012. He served until the community-based fundraising organization was absorbed into the UW-Green Bay Foundation, Inc. earlier this year. Suzy Pfeifer, recently retired as Director of Marketing and Fund Development for Encompass Early Education and Care, Inc., was employed by UW-Green Bay as Director of Major Gifts in the early 2000s and is a past member of the Council of Trustees.

Ron Pfeifer’s extensive record of community involvement includes board of directors’ service with the Green Bay Boys and Girls Club, Bellin College of Nursing and Scholarships, Inc. where he served two terms as President of the Board of Directors. He is also a former chair of the Unity Hospice Board. He has participated as a consultant or committee member with organizations including the Green Bay Symphony Orchestra, the local YMCA and St. Norbert College.

“I share Chancellor Miller’s optimism about UW-Green Bay’s future because Northeast Wisconsin residents also believe that our best years are ahead of us,” Pfeifer said. “This is time of great change in education, and the Chancellor’s vision is ahead of the curve.”


Regents OK tenure, promotions for UW-Green Bay faculty members

The University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents approved promotions or tenure for 17 UW-Green Bay faculty members during the board’s meeting June 4 and 5 at UW-Milwaukee.

Much of her recent scholarship focuses on community response to natural disasters. She is the co-author of the book Long-Term Community Recovery from Natural Disasters (CRC Press, 2014). Arendt received her B.S. in Business Administration and Spanish from UW-Green Bay in 1987, and her M.S. in Administrative Science in 1990. She earned her Ph.D. from UW-Milwaukee. The 2008 recipient of the Founders Association Award for Excellence in Teaching, Arendt has taught courses at UW-Green Bay since the 1990s, and joined the faculty as a full-time lecturer in 2004 and as an assistant professor in 2006.

Dornbush is a professor of biology with the Natural and Applied Sciences academic unit. He teaches at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, serving as chairman of UW-Green Bay’s interdisciplinary master’s degree program in Environmental Science and Policy. His primary research interests involve the role of native plant restorations in improving ecosystems. He has won state and federal grants for projects ranging from the potential use of native tallgrass for bio-energy purposes to the restoration of wild rice, bulrush and wild celery stands in the lower bay. Dornbush, who joined the UW-Green Bay faculty in 2005, holds master’s and doctoral degrees from Iowa State University and a bachelor’s from Augustana (Ill.) College.

Gallagher-Lepak has been a member of the UW-Green Bay Nursing faculty since 2003. She serves as chair of the department and director of BSN-LINC, the online degree-completion program enrolling nurses nationwide. She teaches courses including Pharmacology, Healthy Aging, Theoretical Foundations of Nursing, Management and Leadership, Global Aspects of Healthcare, and Financial Management. Her scholarship has focused on e-learning, clinical reasoning and nursing diagnosis. Gallagher Lepak and colleague T. Heather Herdman are the creators of a new electronic app to aid nurses involved in direct patient care and treatment/diagnostic decisions. Gallagher-Lepak earned her Ph.D. in rehabilitation psychology at UW-Madison after completing her bachelor’s in nursing at Marquette University and master’s at UW-Milwaukee.

Henze is a professor of English affiliated with both the Humanistic Studies academic unit and the Women’s and Gender Studies program. She teaches courses in the humanities, Renaissance literature and music, women in literature, and environmental literature. She is particularly interested in the role of music in English Renaissance theater and the works of Shakespeare. Henze was faculty chairperson of UW-Green Bay’s Adult Degree program at a time the adult-learning program was earning national rankings for its excellence in engaging students via distance learning. Henze earned her doctorate at the University of Chicago, her master’s from the University of Idaho, and bachelor’s from the University of Arkansas. She joined the UW-Green Bay faculty in 1996.

Luczaj joined the Natural and Applied Sciences faculty in 2005. He teaches a wide variety of geoscience and environmental science courses including Introduction to Earth Science, Physical Geology, Geologic Evolution of the Earth, Stratigraphy & Sedimentation, Quaternary Geology, Geologic Field Methods, Groundwater Resources and Regulations, and more. He has won widespread public and scholarly attention for his grants and research. Among the topics he has addressed: mapping the bedrock of Brown County, documenting strontium levels in local aquifers, and exploring groundwater fluctuation in Northeast Wisconsin. Luczaj holds a Ph.D. in geology from Johns Hopkins University, a master’s from the University of Kansas, and a bachelor’s from UW Oshkosh. He is co-author of the fourth edition of the textbook Earth System History.

Vescio is a professor of Humanistic Studies and former chair of UW-Green Bay’s English program. In addition to teaching introductory and advanced humanities courses, he teaches and publishes in the areas of American literature, literary theory, film studies, and world literature. His research has involved theoretical work on the future of the humanities in general and literary studies in particular. He holds both a Ph.D. and M.A. in English from the University of Virginia. He graduated from UW-Madison with a B.A. in English in 1993. Vescio joined the UW-Green Bay faculty in 2002.

Wolf, a biologist and professor of Natural and Applied Sciences, was honored in 2014 with UW-Green Bay’s Founders Association Award of Excellence in Scholarship. Her studies of plant-animal interactions, of native bee populations, and of forest dynamics in Northern Wisconsin are highly regarded. Her work has earned grants from the National Science Foundation, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, the Smithsonian, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, among others. A member of the UW-Green Bay faculty since 2005, Wolf holds a Ph.D. in ecology from the University of California, Davis, and received both her bachelor’s in Biology and master’s in Environmental Science and Policy from UW-Green Bay.

Additionally, the UW System Board of Regents made official the concurrent appointment of Gary L. Miller — who joined UW-Green Bay as chancellor last Aug. 1 — as a full professor with tenure in the Natural and Applied Sciences academic unit. Miller was a professor of ecology with the University of Mississippi prior to entering academic administration on a full-time basis.

UW-Green Bay course to present $10,000 grant to Brown County not-for-profit

Students in the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Strategic Philanthropy course announced a $10,000 grant to Family Services’ Transitional Living Program in a ceremony Thursday, May 7.

Through this course, students are provided $10,000 by the Learning by Giving Foundation to give to a deserving organization in the community. The class focused this year on youth struggling with issues such as homelessness, alcohol and other drug addiction, and mental illness. The finalists for the grant were Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin, American Foundation for Counseling Services’ Kamp Kare, and House of Hope.

Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin provides support to people in Northeastern Wisconsin communities during challenges and transitions in their lives. These services include counseling or treatment, early childhood development, crisis services, at-risk youth programs, and self-sufficiency programs. The $10,000 grant will support the Transitional Living Program, a self-sufficiency program for young adults between the ages of 17-29, which currently has a waiting list of over 100 individuals. Brown County ranks second in the state for the number of homeless youth. This program provides an innovative approach to not only addressing homelessness but also assisting in developing a plan to address many of the other issues that come along with that.

The Strategic Philanthropy course at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is the only one of its kind in Wisconsin, allowing students to have hands-on experiences by going through the granting process themselves. This is the third year that the course has been offered and is instructed by Public and Environmental Affairs Associate Professor Lora Warner. More information can be found on the students’ blog:
