UW-Green Bay Assistant Prof. Alan Chu (Sport, Exercise and Performance Psychology), is an active researcher who studies motivation using self-determination theory (Deci & Ryan, 1985). Earlier this August 2019, he received the recognition of International Scholar from the Center for Self-Determination Theory. There are currently 106 scholars being recognized, 30 of which are based in the U.S.
International students from 14 different countries joined together for the first time this school year on the UW-Green Bay campus.
“One of the first things we like to do is welcome them to the Green Bay community,” Kristy Aoki, Asistant Director of International Student Scholar Services at UW-Green Bay said. “One of the biggest things about UW-Green Bay and our community is a love of football.”
To help showcase that love of football, Aoki enlisted the help of the Green Bay East High School Red Devils. The team hosted the international students at City Stadium Tuesday afternoon and showed them the football ropes.
