EMBI receives Cofrin funds

The Environmental Management and Business Institute (EMBI) has received funding from the Cofrin Endowment (via the UW-Green Bay Foundation) to support the associate director position at EMBI, which was filled earlier this year with the hiring of John Arendt as the first associate director. EMBI was established in 2008 by Interim Chancellor David Ward and had previously operated with John Katers and John Stoll as faculty co-directors. The funding of the new position will allow EMBI to have more permanent staff and expand its efforts on campus and in the community through internships, outreach and research. Prof. John Katers will continue on as the director of EMBI and oversee the associate director and the ongoing operations.
