The campuswide Common Theme for the 2013-2014 academic year is “Global Citizenship in an Evolving World,” and there already have been a number of events associated with the theme — with more to follow in the coming months (www.uwgb.edu/commontheme/).
The purpose of the Common Theme is to allow faculty, academic staff and students the ability to focus on a general theme from multiple perspectives and have a campuswide shared experience. Proposals for the 2014-2015 Common Theme are now being accepted. The proposal should include the title of the theme; a short description and why it would be an appropriate theme for UW-Green Bay; and a few ideas regarding activities, speakers and books you would suggest as part of the theme. Proposals are due by Dec. 2, and should be submitted to Scott Furlong, Dean, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Donna Ritch, Associate Dean, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, at email@example.com. Decisions on proposals will be made and communicated no later than Jan. 15.
