Wisconsin Public Service Corporation and Integrys Energy have a longstanding history of support for UW-Green Bay. WPS, its foundation and various executives over the years have been strong sponsors of student scholarships,  faculty and student research, the solar “extras” that made made Mary Ann Cofrin Hall a national showcase for energy-efficient technology, the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts and various ongoing programs.

UW-Green Bay is planning to celebrate 50 years of excellence with events and activities throughout the 2015-16 academic year including a major alumni reunion.
