Huge congratulations are in order for Human Biology Prof. Angela Bauer, who on Monday (Jan. 7) was named a 2013 UW System Board of Regents Diversity Awardwinner in the Individual Category. Bauer, who serves as Special Assistant to the Provost, is being recognized for her commitment “to enhancing the educational experiences and outcomes for under-represented students of color at UW-Green Bay.” In particular, Board of Regents President Brent Smith and Diversity Award Committee Chair John Drew lauded Bauer’s work with the TOSS Program (Targeted Opportunities for Success in the Sciences), which has helped close the achievement gap in her Introduction to Human Biology course.
Bauer will receive her award Feb. 8 in Madison, and we’ll have much more to come on her achievement. For now, you can read more about TOSS and Bauer’s efforts in our UW-Green Bay News story from last academic year. Congratulations, Prof.Bauer!
