Social Work

Double duty: UW-Green Bay Masters of Social Work program doubles in size

UW-Green Bay had a successful collaboration with UW-Oshkosh since launching a Masters of Social Work (MSW) in 2003. Not even optimistic program leaders could have predicted the explosion in applicants when UW-Green Bay decided to go at it alone in 2015.

Enrollment doubled and the University could only admit half of the cohort that applied. The MSW Program is now one of the University’s largest graduate programs with 89 students — half expect to graduate with their advanced degree in May, 2017.

MSW students graduate with a clarity of vision and mission as well as pragmatic and strategic skillsets to make immediate, concrete contributions to the communities in which they choose to work, say program leaders. They come with insights and tools to help people, communities and economies thrive in a multi-cultural, evolving world. MSW grads bring on-the-ground experience to engage and facilitate positive personal and societal change by empowering individuals, groups, and communities to reach their optimal potential.

Gail Trimberger, MSW, Ph.D, LCSW and UW-Green Bay Associate Professor/MSW program coordinator sees a far-reaching role for social work skills.

“The social work skill set involves broad and deep capabilities in field research and practice, assessment, evidence-based program evaluation and development and interdisciplinary experience,” she said.

“Many people are familiar with the more traditional examples of social work, with individuals and families in need of support and advocacy for those whose voices are not heard, ” she says. “But the social work skill set offers significant practical and strategic value to all aspects of society, including leadership in business and public policy.”

Program organizers believe that UW-Green Bay’s MSW program is unique in a number of ways:

  • The MSW Program is very student-centered with low student/faculty ratios. It is also surrounded by rural Wisconsin communities — many times mirroring the environments in which MSW graduates will live and work.
  • UW-Green Bay offers evening courses for working students and facilitates field placements in areas that best serve the community and the students.
  • The MSW Program offers an advanced generalist concentration which provides a strong social work foundation for all students. Unique to the UW-Green Bay program, students are encouraged to identify an Individualized Area of Emphasis (IAE) if they wish to study a particular population or area of practice in depth, e.g., clinical, medical, child welfare, older adults, etc. Faculty and advisors work closely with students to help them identify and develop their IAE.
  • The MSW Program attracts students from a variety of backgrounds. This diversity in the classroom enriches the dialogue and, as a result, enriches the educational experience for all the students. Social work students are taught to see the world from an interdisciplinary systems perspective, not only from an individual perspective.  This multi-level view is unique to our profession and, as such, can contribute greatly to discussions related to the health and well-being of individuals and society.

“As the needs of our communities increase, so does the need for skilled social workers,” said Trimberger. “MSW students possess the knowledge and skills to engage and facilitate positive personal and societal change by empowering individuals, groups, and communities to reach their optimal potential. Social workers are committed to advocating for individuals and groups who have been historically underrepresented, ensuring social policy and social services are inclusive and provide equal access to all. Our graduates can help navigate complex social service systems as well as promote social justice for the vulnerable and oppressed.”

UW-Green Bay receives ‘100,000 Strong in the Americas’ Innovation Fund Award

Coca-Cola Foundation Funds Partnerships in Environmental Sciences

100K Strong in the AmericasGREEN BAY – The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay was one of eight institutions of higher education (and their partners) to be recognized with a “100,000 Strong in the Americas” Innovation Fund Award and $25,000 in grant funding. The White House, U.S. Department of State, Partners of the Americas, and NAFSA: Association of International Educators announced the Innovation Fund grant winners of the Coca-Cola Foundation-sponsored competition.

Spearheaded by Michael Zorn (Associate Dean of the College of Science and Technology and Professor in the Department of Natural and Applied Sciences), UW-Green Bay and its partner, the Universidad del Desarrollo in Chile, received the award for the proposal, “Establishment of a UW-Green Bay (US)-Universidad del Desarrollo (UDD, Chile) Bi-Directional Travel Course: Environmental Engineering Issues-Water Emphasis. This Innovation Fund grant competition focused on creating new study abroad programs between the United States and Latin America in the field of environmental science, with an emphasis on water. These Innovation Fund grant winners were announced during the opening reception of the Partners of the Americas’ Convention in Guadalajara, Mexico.

“This award highlights the world class research on water related issues that is being done by faculty, staff and students at UW-Green Bay and will provide our students with an incredible opportunity to collaborate with faculty and students from our partner UDD,” said John Katers, Dean of UW-Green Bay’s College of Science and Technology and co-principal investigator on this grant.

The proposal provides partial support for 12 UWGB students to travel from UW-Green Bay to UDD and six students from UDD to travel to UW-Green Bay to participate in water-related research and study. Past relationships between the institutions showed strong similarities in studying water related issues and controversies, with faculty expertise at the two institutions being complimentary. The geographic locations and associated water-specific environmental concerns of both institutions present an ideal laboratory for students studying environmental sciences/engineering concepts related to water. Both locations deal with the unfortunate situation of water pollution crises. Students will be immersed in the science, engineering and policy behind the problems and the potential solutions to the site-specific water issues. Ultimately, this award strengthens the partnership between UWGB and its Chilean partner and creates capacity-building opportunities that will allow more UW-Green Bay and UDD students access to inter-institutional travel courses—specific to environmental sciences, environmental engineering and beyond. Students from both programs would begin their experience in 2017.

Water Water Everywhere

UW-Green Bay helps protect the largest freshwater estuary in the world

Green Bay and its surrounding communities sit on the largest freshwater estuary in the world, where water from the Fox River and the Bay of Green Bay mix.

“The estuary is important to all of Lake Michigan, both as an active port and as an engine for biological production,” says Patrick Robinson, Interim Director of Community, Natural Resource and Economic Development (CNRED).

Every member of the community depends on a constant supply of fresh water for drinking, and water dominates a local economy built on agriculture, paper and food processing industries, forestry, fishing, hunting and boating. Water is everywhere, but it is easy to forget just how intertwined water quality is to the region’s overall quality of life and the threats to our liquid lifeline. The Bay of Green Bay is threatened by invasive species, urban and agricultural nutrient run-off and wetland and shoreline loss.

UW-Green Bay scientists have long taken advantage of the University’s location on the Bay to study one of the region’s most valuable resources. During the University’s early years, scientists Jack Day, Jim Wiersma, Bud Harris, Paul Sager and Ron Stieglitz focused on understanding the impacts of pollutants and nutrients on water quality and ecosystem health that helped advise agencies as they began to tackle the national clean-up of the Fox River.

UW-Green Bay’s new cohort of award-winning faculty continue to be actively involved in all aspects of water quality, from soils and farms to helping industry and municipalities ensure that clean water keeps coming out of the tap. Current research focuses on water quality, wastewater management, habitat restoration and ecology.

Nine faculty and their staff and students are currently engaged in water-related research that now spans several disciplines. (Photo above, Environmental Science and Policy student Erica Meulemans studies the nutrient dynamics of the Lower Fox River using chemical sensors). There is a universal focus on funded research based on collaborative partnerships with local businesses, agencies, municipalities, non-profit organizations and other universities, which provide a rich resource of information about water quality.

Grants received between 2013 and 2016 amount to $3.1 million for water-related research
focusing on the region’s freshwater resources. Current partners with our faculty include 14 area farms, hundreds of businesses, non-profits and municipalities, NEW Water, The Oneida Tribe, Ducks Unlimited, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), Sea Grant, The Fox-Wolf Watershed Alliance, The Nature Conservancy, Great Lakes Alliance, UW Extension and UW-Milwaukee, among them.

Collaborative data and information are shared with partners and are made publicly available to help agency and municipal personnel make informed economic decisions that can potentially save money, maintain water quality and conserve freshwater resources and habitat.

Nicole Van Helden, Director of Conservation-Green Bay Watershed at The Nature Conservancy, describes UW-Green Bay as an excellent partner. “UW-Green Bay provides the science we need to inform on-the-ground action. This helps us to make better decisions and provide cost effective solutions to improve water quality in our region.”

Faculty work extensively with their students, helping them to develop and practice skills. Over the last three years, hundreds of students have participated directly in water-related research as part of their coursework, independent studies, internships and senior and graduate thesis projects. Most are now pursuing advanced degrees or successful careers in water resources. Recent graduates now work with the DNR, The Nature Conservancy, USFWS, NEW Water, UW Extension, and with several local and regional businesses.

In addition, water research reaches students in area high schools. The Lower Fox River Water monitoring program, started 15 years ago by professors Bud Harris (Emeritus) and Kevin Fermanich, provides area science teachers with resources to lead teams of high school students who collect water quality data from streams that feed the lower part of the Fox River.

From long-term monitoring to modeling, water resources research by faculty in the College of Science and Technology with their students and collaborative partners allows business and community members to better understand their water resources and provide solutions and options for decision makers.

Current research focused on water quality, wastewater management, habitat restoration, and fisheries ecology:

Water Quality —

Ryan Holzem, an environmental engineer in UW-Green Bay’s Engineering Technology program, has as his primary research goal to improve  drinking and wastewater management. Holzem  has had several projects that team students with area businesses to solve unique wastewater issues. In one project, students under his direction worked with a food processing business to help find ways to economically reduce chlorides in waste water. This project benefits the community and sewage treatment facilities by alleviating  pressure on the water resource recovery and wastewater treatment facilities that would otherwise have to remove those chemicals. Other projects had students working with area farmers to apply manure to fields in a responsible way. Undergraduate Jake Pelegrin worked on an analysis to see whether it might be cost effective to harvest the invasive aquatic plant Phragmites to use in digesters to generate biogas.  This year, student Eric Short will work with wastewater treatment staff to facilitate  more efficient aeration  in treatment tanks.

Geologist John Luczaj has a number of ongoing projects that are examining the relationship between rock geology and chemistry related to groundwater availability and water quality. One project, which became part of graduate student Julie Maas’s thesis research, showed how deep aquifer water level recovered almost 200 feet since regional municipalities switched from using groundwater to lake water for their drinking supply.  His other  projects, in collaboration with UW-Green Bay chemist Mike McIntire and statistician Megan Olson Hunt, aim to better understand the geochemistry of rocks in relation to metals that become dissolved in groundwater supplies. Other projects involve students examining groundwater age and chemistry.

Soil Scientist Kevin Fermanich has spent the last 20 years studying soil health and nutrient runoff into streams and ultimately the Bay of Green Bay. His work on phosphorus, helping  to determine low oxygen  “dead zones” in the Bay of Green Bay with recent ES&P graduate Tracy Valenta and collaborators at NEW Water in Green Bay and  at UW-Milwaukee, gained national attention.

Restoration ecologist Matt Dornbush is working with Kevin Fermanich on projects related to monitoring  soil health, productivity and clean water on farms in the lower Fox Region that help farmers to improve their “edge of field” water quality. Other collaborations,with the Fox Wolf Watershed Alliance and the Nature Conservancy, are  looking at edge of field impacts and agricultural  treatment wetlands, which are similar to urban storm water ponds.

Dornbush and Fermanich are working with the Oneida tribe to quantify impacts on water quality in Silver Creek located on the reservation. This project uses Silver Creek as a test case for altering land use to improve water quality in an agricultural ecosystem. The project involves the cooperation of tribal farmers and agencies in comparing impacts of various agricultural practices from grazing to row crops, along with various restoration activities in the creek.

Environmental Chemist Mike Zorn studies chemical conditions in the Bay of Green Bay using a variety of sampling methods, especially new chemistry tools to better understand and make predictions about conditions. He is currently working on measuring nutrients using  chemical sensors deployed from Lake Winnebago into the bay to better understand the system and predict algal blooms, which will have significance for other projects like restoring Bay Beach in Green Bay. He is also working with collaborators from UW-Milwaukee and NEW Water to monitor oxygen concentrations in the bay.

Habitat and Ecological  Restoration —

Fisheries ecologist Patrick Forsythe works on projects designed to improve the health of fish populations, with the goal of improving reproduction and habitat quality that will benefit biodiversity and recreational and commercial fisheries in the Great Lakes. His recent research project is in collaboration with partners with USFWS, Ducks Unlimited, and the WI-DNR  to understand the reproduction ecology of Northern Pike and Lake Sturgeon. With collaborators at other institutions, he has recently received three new grants totaling more than $630,000, to extend the study to include several more fish species like Lake Whitefish. The results of this research will help regional fisheries managers with their efforts  to improve fish spawning in tributaries into Lake Michigan.

Several faculty, including Patrick Robinson, Patrick Forsythe, Matt Dornbush, Amy Wolf, and Bob Howe are working with a coalition of partners (Ducks Unlimited, USFWS, DNR, NRDA, Save Our Great Lakes Alliance, Green Bay Water Authority) to monitor restoration of the Cat Island chain of barrier islands in the southern part of the bay of Green Bay. The goal of the barrier islands is to improve water quality and wildlife habitat in the southern bay. Students and faculty have been monitoring shorebirds, fish, and water chemistry, and actively restoring vegetation between Duck Creek and the southern part of the islands. Major successes of the project include nesting by threatened Piping Plovers on the island and the return of wild rice to the mouth of Duck Creek. The team is currently transitioning to a new project focused on further restoration, with the help of a $1.2 million grant to continue habitat restoration, including continued vegetation restoration and improved waterfowl and fish habitat.

The Lower Green Bay and Fox River Area of Concern is just one of many sites in the Great Lakes that has been designated by the EPA as  areas where human activity has significantly impaired beneficial uses. Ecologists Amy Wolf and Bob Howe are leading a project that includes staff and students in developing the roadmap to guide local stakeholders in achieving  their goal of delisting the area. They are gathering and compiling data on current and historical conditions, identifying high biodiversity areas and developing statistical models that will help stakeholders to prioritize projects and to focus their management in the most cost effective way.

In order to restore habitat at UW-Green Bay’s Point au Sable coastal natural area, professors Robert Howe and Amy Wolf received funding from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to remove invasive plants, especially Phragmites. This natural area is an important migratory stop-over spot for birds and bats, as well as an important nesting site for game fish and birds. Students in Ecology and Conservation Biology courses helped with field work and monitoring for the restoration management plan. Wolf and Howe are continuing to pursue shoreline restoration at Point au Sable and in the UW-Green Bay Arboretum by pursuing funding to reduce erosion and storm water runoff into the bay, and to restore and improve beach habitat.

Bob Howe has participated in a Great Lakes Coastal Monitoring project with 14 other institutions, to monitor frog and bird populations in the western Great Lakes. The EPA has funded the project for the past 15 years and it has been renewed for another four  years. This research has provided eight graduate students and over 30 undergraduates with spring and summer research opportunities.

Prelaw? At UW-Green Bay? Why, yes we do.

UW-Green Bay offers prelaw? The answer is a resounding “yes.” Ask Green Bay Attorney, Jason R. Just. He received his law degree from the University of Minnesota in May of this year, and credits his acceptance into its law program to the time he spent working towards his undergraduate degree from the University’s Democracy and Justice Studies (DJS) program.

Jason R. Just
Jason R. Just

“My professors did an exceptional job of challenging my thinking,” says Just. “They didn’t just lecture and hand out a test; their courses were difficult and challenging and made me think and engage with professors and fellow students. I was able to develop a type of critical thinking mindset that put me a step ahead of my peers in 
law school.”

Nationally-recognized professors, a close-knit setting that emphasizes open discussion and critical thinking combined with the program’s interdisciplinary approach give graduates a distinct advantage when entering law school. This interdisciplinary approach is what makes such a difference in the success of the program, says UW-Green Bay’s pre-law advisor, Assistant Professor Kristine Coulter.

“There are nine of us (professors) within this department, and we all come at it with different angles,” says Coulter. “We are political scientists, sociologists, historians and economists. Yet our underlying connection is caring about democracy and justice.”

Law schools throughout the country accept students in any major, based mostly on their GPA and Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). But Coulter explains that the coursework and instruction within the DJS program expose students to classes that they would have to take in law school, and assist students in deciding if law school is the right path.

“Our students develop a skill set that’s attractive to law schools…reading and writing skills, analytical and oral communication skills,” says Coulter. “We help our students pick the classes that will hone these skills, and at the same time, expose them to Constitutional Law, for example, to see if they like reading law briefs; or Law and Society to learn about the court system.”

Professor Harvey Kaye (Photo above with pre-law student Bree Mucha, DJS, Soldotna, Alaska) says strong community engagement by DJS faculty, and continual research and study of local and national issues, transfers back to the classroom, directly impacting DJS students.

“We’ve had more, and better students than we ever have before in the program,” says Kaye. “Department faculty are involved with many local organizations… and collaborate to provide numerous opportunities for internships.”

This community involvement, and continual research and study of local and national issues, transfers back to the classroom, directly impacting DJS students.

“When the university was founded 50-plus years ago, we were created to be the ‘innovative’ campus in the UW system,” states Kaye. “Although much has changed, we have sustained the idea that every student should have a program that is problem-focused and interdisciplinary, encouraging innovation, public debate, and the asking of questions.”

Many opportunities exist for those wishing to become an attorney. Besides the “traditional” courtroom lawyer, attorneys are in demand within large business settings and within the healthcare compliance system — both because of their law degree and their well-honed critical thinking skills.

“We’re going to challenge students and get them to think about and talk about things that are uncomfortable,” says Coulter, giving students the skills and critical thinking mindset to make them successful law students that become successful attorneys.

And more importantly, good citizens.

Photog’s Picks: Top UW-Green Bay photos of 2016

The close of 2016 also marks the end of my first year as UW-Green Bay’s campus photographer.  It’s been a great year, and I thought it would be fun to take a look back at 10 of my favorite photos from the past year. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I have enjoyed taking them!

10 – Geoscience visit to Pictured Rocks

10 - Science Trip to Pictured Rocks

I have a major bias in favor of anything to do with our National Parks, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to photograph the science trip to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. I’ve selected this photo because the setting at Chapel Beach provides a wonderful backdrop, because it captures a moment as the students take in the views in that setting and because the t-shirts made it clear what Natural and Applied Sciences have to offer.

 

9 – Chorale backs Barry Manilow

9 - Chior Back Barry Manilow

Continuing the theme of students having incredible experiences in incredible places, our chorale students backed Barry Manilow as he sang “Copacabana” before a packed house at the Resch Center. Making photos of events like this has a lot to do with access, and our friends at PMI were able to help me capture this high-energy performance while our students were on stage.

 

8 – Phuture Phoenix

8 - Phuture Phoenix

Phuture Phoenix day brings a ton of energy to campus.  As you can see, the fifth graders are rarely camera-shy.

 

7 – Kumar carries the Mace one final time

7 - Kumar Carries the Mace for the FInal Time

In my opinion, never will there be a more distinguished UW-Green Bay faculty member than Kumar Kangayappan. It was an honor just to take this photo of him carrying the ceremonial mace out of commencement for his final time after 48 years of teaching at UW-Green Bay.

 

6 – Dogs in the Cofrin Library

6 - Dogs in the Library

The staff of the Cofrin Library is always looking our for ways to help students out, and that’s never more evident than when they bring in therapy dogs to help students relax during a stressful week of finals. The expressions on the faces show that it is an event appreciated by human and canine alike.

 

5 – Trump Town Hall at the Weidner Center

5 - Trump Town Hall at Weidner

MSNBC held a town-hall meeting with now President-Elect Donald Trump at the Weidner Center ahead of the spring primary. As photographers, we were only allowed in briefly following the filming to grab a few images. I took some more posed images of Trump and Chris Matthews smiling for the camera, but this image shows a lot more personality.

 

4 – Move-in Day fun

4 - Move-In Day Fun

You see a wide range of emotions on Freshmen Move-In Day. I’d put this at the joyful end of the spectrum.

 

3 – National Anthem at Lambeau Field

3 - Wellens Sings Anthem at Lambeau

UW-Green Bay alumnus Kevin Wellens got to sing the National Anthem before a full house at Lambeau Field, and I got to go on field to take pictures!  Wellens’ rousing rendition was very well received, and it was easily as good of a photo opportunity as I’ll ever find.

 

2 – Snowy Day at UW-Green Bay

2 - Snowy Day on Campus

Isolating a tree in snow usually results in a good photo. I had seen this tree earlier, and noticed that in the right conditions it would look great with the Cofrin Library behind it. When we got the right snowstorm with the right sort of snow sticking to the trees, I headed out and made this image — now the cover photo for Inside magazine.

 

1 – Women’s basketball wins a thriller

1 - Jubilation at Women's Basketball

I was fortunate enough to be in a spot where I was able to capture the whole sequence as Green Bay’s Jen Wellnitz hit the shot to push the Phoenix past Northern Kentucky in double-overtime of their Horizon League semifinal game. Of all of the images, this one, the first in the sequence where enough time has passed for the crowd to react, is my favorite. In fact, it’s my favorite of my photos from 2016.
