Brand Launch Celebration Day!
Wednesday (Nov. 14) we celebrate our new brand and slogan, but mostly, we celebrate the things that make this University and a degree from UW-Green Bay special. Among them: problem solving from multiple perspectives, student connections to exceptional faculty and internationally recognized scholars, and an ideal learning environment with rich and engaging co-curricular experiences. We call it “360° of Learning.” Join in the celebration.

• A 360° art perspective
The project is called Monument to an Insignificant Activity. Students were asked to observe the activities of UWGB students in certain locations throughout campus and consider the very subtle ways in which the space affected the way people behaved. In groups, members of Prof. Alison Stehlik’s Art 106 (Design Methods) course created large-scale, representational, monuments to the seemingly insignificant activities that they observed. The purpose of this project is to consider the relationship between the design of a space and the human activities (and interactivities) that occur as a result of that design. See news post and photos.
• Reminder: What’s your 360° perspective? Adult Degree wants to know
Check out the “360° of Perspective” gallery, located in the plaza level of the Cofrin Library. Based on the premise that problems are best viewed from multiple perspectives … each piece can be viewed and interpreted differently, based on the perspective of the viewer. Visitors will be encouraged to take a photo of their favorite image and tweet it — plus a few words about how the image reflects “360° of Learning” — to @UWGBOutreach. A drawing will be held at the end of the week. Winners will take home their favorite image with a grand prize of a $50 Gift Certificate from the Phoenix Bookstore! The gallery will be open Monday, Nov. 12 through Friday, Nov. 16.
• 360° of Learning, an example:
Seven students, one hospital, and a productive collaboration
Aurora BayCare Medical Center, a local healthcare provider in Green Bay, WI, sought the services of the UWGB Environmental Management and Business Institute (EMBI) to find sustainable solutions to some of its pressing environmental problems: energy and water consumption, waste disposal, recycling, etc. John Arendt, associate director of EMBI shared his 360° story.

• Reminder: Seeking your favorites: 360° of Books
As part of the 360° Brand Launch Celebration, the Cofrin Library wants to know: What’s your favorite book? The goal: to get 360 UWGB students, faculty, staff and alumni to tell their favorite. It could be something from your childhood, your most influential book, or something you’re reading now. Results will be shared publicly. (UW-Green Bay’s own “Oprah” moment, perhaps?) Go to the schedule of events (www.uwgb.edu/univcomm/360/schedule.asp) to see how to share your favorite or stop by the library and write it down at the fifth-floor display.
• Residence Life promoting two 360° events
