Stangel accepts new appointment with Notre Dame Academy

Jeanne Stangel, a longtime UW-Green Bay administrator, will be leaving the University to accept a newly created position with Notre Dame de La Baie Academy in Green Bay. Stangel starts Aug. 3 as Notre Dame’s vice president for institutional advancement. She will direct fundraising, strategic initiatives and communication, and serve additionally as the Roman Catholic high school’s director of athletics. “I am thrilled and excited by this opportunity,” Stangel said. “NDA is very well respected in this community and exemplifies the highest standards in helping its students excel in faith, academics, athletics and extracurricular development.” At UW-Green Bay, Stangel serves as Vice Chancellor for University Advancement and President of the UW-Green Bay Foundation, Inc. A member of the institution’s executive team, she oversees the University’s fundraising, alumni, marketing and communication functions. “Jeanne Stangel has been a wonderful ambassador for UWGB,” commented Chancellor Gary L. Miller. “What she has accomplished — in terms of rallying community and alumni support for student scholarships, academic enhancements and campus facilities — has made a tangible difference in the lives of our students. We extend our great appreciation to her for all she has done, and wish her the best as she accepts this new challenge. It has been a great honor to work with her. She is a great professional.” A native of the Algoma area and a 1987 graduate of UW-Green Bay’s Business Administration program, Stangel has held a variety of positions with the University over 25 years as a student, administrator and advocate.

Phone-A-Thon Callers have another record year!

Every year, the Advancement Office hires about 20 students for the Alumni Phone-A-Thon, and they are tasked with (cold) calling UW-Green Bay alumni to ask for updates and a donation to support student scholarships at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. After 1,270 calling hours, a multitude of “no’s” and hours of exceptionally uncreative voice messages, these students pulled out another Phone-A-Thon record in support for UW-Green Bay. The final total is $60,517, which development specialist Tracy Heaser of Advancement reports is a 9 percent increase over last year’s record. If you see Kate Akerboom, Jess Amelse, Kristi Auner, Sarah Busko, Emily Carroll, Janae Due, Brianna Hansen, Breanna Hanson, Savannah Hornbacher, Sydne Johnson, Rebecca Krizan, Lizzy Kroll, Chloe Krueger, Marti Kuimjian, Lindsey LaBissoniere, Jenevieve Lee, Casi Schatzman, Brook Theama, or Alex Vahlsing, please extend them a “congratulations” for their hard work, positivity and efforts to support their University. Go Phoenix!

A recent review of the Advancement Office’s alumni database shows 454 people with dual degrees from UWGB. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, now is the perfect time to share a few tales of UWGB alumni love for alma mater, in the form of bachelor’s degree recipients who came back for master’s degrees.

In a fog

Just after sunrise, early arrivals to the UW-Green Bay campus on Wednesday, Oct. 22, were treated to the ethereal but ephemeral sight of scattered pockets of fog resting lightly upon a landscape bright with fall colors. This view is from the eighth floor of the Cofrin Library, looking out toward the Weidner Center (and the bay of Green Bay, hidden behind a fog bank.) The scene above was captured via smart phone by University Advancement Office staff member Liz Teubert.

Another eighth-floor colleague, Holly Keener of the Academic Affairs Office, captured the photos below that same morning. (Click thumbnails to enter slideshow view.)
