Today’s feature: Student, a military vet, teaches Arabic to teachers

UW-Green Bay’s new Center for Middle East Studies and Partnerships, announced this week, is getting a boost from Jeremy Wildenberg, a first-year student who serves as a reminder that non-traditional students often bring a knowledge that adds to the academic experience. In his case, he’s teaching Arabic to UW-Green Bay educators. Wildenberg, age 35, a Little Chute native, spent 14 years in the U.S. Army as a linguistics expert. Among his students nowadays are members of the UW-Green Bay faculty and staff involved with the establishment of the new Center. Neat story.
