Over a century has passed since the end of the Great War. UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Eric Morgan (Democracy and Justice Studies, History) will explore the origins of this global conflict and the United States’ participation in it, including the activism of dissenters such as Wisconsin’s Robert La Follett. He will also explore the importance of Wisconsinites to the war effort. This talk takes place at the Brown County Central Library on Thursday, March 26, 2020 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. and accompanies a poster exhibit that takes a closer look at the war and its aftermath. This event is free and open to the public. (This event is still scheduled as of today’s writing).

At this time (March 13, 2020), UW-Green Bay campuses remain open and essential services will remain available. Employees are expected to report to work. However, there exists a greater need during this time to accommodate requests for flexibility in work relationships, including telecommuting. To that end, UW-Green Bay (in accordance with UW System Interim Policy #1200-01) is providing managers and employees resources in order to work through short term telecommuting arrangements. Please see the available resources below:
In the event that the number of approved flexible work arrangement or accommodation requests in a particular area results in an office closure, the area must follow the guidance set forth in HR 14-17-3: Office Hours and Institutional Closures Policy. Permission by the Chancellor to implement discretionary closure remains subject to the Area Leaders discretion and will only be implemented in an individual office with both the Chancellor’s permission and area leaders consent.
For more information about flexible work arrangements and employee leave, please see the UW System Coronavirus (COVID-19) Preparedness website.
