How do you get YOUR news, events, highlights posted in the Log?

Those new to UW-Green Bay may not be familiar with how to have your news, highlights, notes, events, etc… shared with the wider four-campus community. Here’s what you do… Send an email with your who, what, where, when and why to log@uwgb.edu. That’s it. The Log is an internal mouthpiece for the UW-Green Bay campus community. It’s a way to spread the word and highlight and honor the great work of our faculty and staff, UW-Green Bay’s partnerships, the sensational outcomes of alumni and the motivation behind our donors. The Log is published (about twice per week in summer) and more often during the school year (based on demand). If you have an event to publicize, please send to the Log inbox at least a week in advance. If you were highlighted in the media, send the link. Have a publication to share? We want to know. Each post is tagged and is pulled by RSS feed into a newsfeed on main web pages on each campus as appropriate. Submissions to Log also trigger consideration for other coverage by the content team. Questions? Email Director of Content and Media Relations, Sue Bodilly, bodillys@uwgb.edu. Bodilly can also help with news releases and media relations in your region.

Three from Wautoma now cheering for Phoenix (and Packers)

“UW-Green Bay Freshmen Shanyce Davis and Jacqulyn Kane and Sophomore Hannah Bunde are Wautoma locals that moved to the city the Packers call home. These ladies are three of the eighteen members of the UW-Green Bay Cheer Team—also known as Green Bay Phoenix—that not only perform at UW-Green Bay sports events, but they also perform at the NFL’s Green Bay Packers’ home games. Being part of this team is competitive, so the fact Wautoma is so highly represented is truly astonishing.” Read the story in the Waushara Argus.

UW-Green Bay chosen as host institution for inaugural Wisconsin Civics Games

UW-Green Bay has been chosen as a host institution for the inaugural Wisconsin Civics Games. Student knowledge of civics and how American government works is woefully in decline, according to UW-Green Bay History Chair Heidi Sherman, and beginning in 2017, all Wisconsin high school students are now mandated by law to pass the same civics test required for the U.S. citizenship exam. To help students prepare, the Wisconsin Newspaper Association, League of Women Voters, and others, are organizing a statewide competition starting this fall for high schools. Teams will review their civics knowledge this fall and compete at regional competitions throughout the state on February 2, 2019, after which the winners will advance to the state competition in Madison.

UW-Green Bay has been chosen as the regional host for Northeast Wisconsin. This fall, UW-Green Bay History and Political Science students will prepare the questions that will be used for all seven regional competitions and test them in social studies education classes. The UW-Green Bay event will be organized by two units: Democracy and Justice Studies (Political Science) and the Humanities (History).

If you would like to participate in some way, or know any local social studies teachers who might, please contact the lead organizers, Katia Levintova (DJS/Political Science) and Heidi Sherman (HUS/History).
