“Like many other schools, the UW System has recently installed more measures to prevent sexual assault and harassment. But the System’s move to join a national coalition of colleges fighting these issues sparked both praise and criticism from faculty and students alike.

Wipfli named Recruitment Partner of the Year

Missed with the busyness of the year, but still important to the campus community, is the announcement that Wipfli was named recruitment partner of the year. Since 2007, Career Services at UW-Green Bay has recognized an employer partner, which shows exceptional commitment evidenced by support and opportunities for our students and graduates. This employer partner also demonstrates comprehensive support for the mission of Career Services. This year that recognition went to Wipfli CPA and Consultants.

…”Our partnership continued to grow with Wipfli’s consistent presence at our job fairs and on-campus interviews for the past 22 years,” said UW-Green Bay Director of Career Services, Linda Peacock-Landrum. “Wipfli has been a continuous eight-year Sponsor of Business Week with the Cofrin School of Business and has established an endowed scholarship for students at UW-Green Bay. The organization has hosted student events and receptions on campus, as well as frequent meetings with faculty and staff to maintain our strong partnership.”

UW-Green Bay has also benefited from the engagement and dedication of our alumni who work at Wipfli. These alumni return to campus to speak to classes, make presentations to student organizations and attend events such as today’s Dine Like a Professional Etiquette Lunch to support and engage our students.

“Our records indicate that 60 plus alumni have worked during their accounting careers with Wipfli and at least 15 students have served as interns with the organization. Currently at least 18 alumni work at Wipfli and four students were interns for the 2019 tax season…” Peacock-Landrum said.

Accepting the award from Wipfli were Dan Pichler, Karen Monfre, Sheila Fisher’07, Breann Woodruff and Jay Totzke.
