UW-Green Bay news will freeze temporarily for server migration

The UW-Green Bay Inside News site (news.uwgb.edu) will not be publishing new content from Friday, Dec. 5 through the weekend. This hold is due to a UW-Green Bay server update that will occur over the weekend. When this process is complete, the Inside News site will have a new look, improved security and improved functionality. This update impacts all UW-Green Bay network blog sites.

The migration schedule is as follows:

  • Friday, Dec 6 – Content will be exported from current blog sites
  • Saturday – Sunday, Dec 7-8 – Teams will work to transfer all of the blog content over to the new environment. This will include updating network information (so that the URLs will point to the new blog locations) and more testing.
  • Monday, Dec 9 – The transition should be complete sometime on Monday. It is possible that the process may take until Tuesday, at the latest.

The Marketing and University Communication office and the Information Technology Web Development, Server and Network Administrator teams thank you for your patience.

Veterans find a supportive community at UW-Green Bay – Think-Make-Happen In Wisconsin

Elaina Koltz may have transitioned from active duty in 2004, but she continues to serve in her position as financial aid advisor and veteran services coordinator at UW-Green Bay. After almost 20 years in the U.S. Army and the Wisconsin National Guard, the transition was difficult, she says, but through her work with student veterans, she realized “how blessed [she is] to still be able to assist our local heroes.” See more via Veterans find a supportive community at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay – Think-Make-Happen In Wisconsin.
