UW-Green Bay names Corey King, Ed.D., as vice chancellor for Inclusivity and Student Affairs

Green Bay, Wis.—The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay announced last week that Corey King, Ed.D. will be joining the University as its new vice chancellor for Inclusivity and Student Affairs effective Sept. 21, 2020. He brings more than 27 years of higher education experience in student affairs, student services, and enrollment management to the University, and is recognized by regional and national student affairs associations for his work as a student affairs leader.

King is currently vice president for Enrollment Management & Student Financial Services at Bethune-Cookman University. He was previously vice president for Student Affairs & Enrollment Management at Florida Atlantic University.

“I could not be more excited that Dr. King has agreed to join us at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay,” said Chancellor Michael Alexander. “His energy, passion, and skill are undeniable. He brings a wealth of experience that will help our campus improve our inclusionary practices and our work in Student Affairs. I am thrilled to have his expertise on our Cabinet and know he will have a tremendous impact on the student experience at UW-Green Bay.”

Throughout his career, King has been a champion of diversity and inclusion through his leadership in establishing an Urban Male Institute focused on the recruitment, retention, and graduation of urban males and a First-Generation Student Success Center geared toward providing support services and scholarships to the upward social mobility of first- generation students.

In addition, as an associate graduate faculty member, he taught graduate courses focused on student affairs leadership, contemporary and diversity issues, and comparative internationalization in higher education. He has also taught at the undergraduate level through the first-year seminar.

“I am excited to join the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay community during these unprecedented times in our nation and the world,” King shared in his acceptance of this role. “The opportunities to ensure the inclusivity of the University is paramount. I look forward to working with Chancellor Alexander and all stakeholders, especially students as we strive toward excellence in diversity and inclusion.”

King received a Bachelor’s Degree in Curriculum & Instruction and a Master’s Degree in Higher Education Administration/Student Affairs from Florida State University. He received his Doctorate in Educational Administration & Leadership from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

Video: See what COVID testing will look like on the Green Bay Campus

Hi, I’m Jeremy Cleven, and today we’re going to walk through the testing process for those of you being tested on the Green Bay campus.

We’re outside the Kress Event Center right now, near the turf gym. This will be your entrance that you take to come in for the test.

Turf gym entrance

Once you make your testing appointment on the MyPrevea app, you will arrive to the Kress Center at your appointment time. You’ll enter at the first door of the turf gym, come on in wait in the socially distanced staging area, on the assigned spot.

From there you will be asked to proceed to one of the check-in stations. There you will show your ID, verify who you are, and provide us with your student ID number.

Once you appropriately check in you’ll be headed to the collection area. We have three collection areas. Just go to which one you’re called. The collection will involve you just verifying who you are and having a cotton tip swab inside your nostril. It doesn’t go very deep so it shouldn’t bother you too much.

Once your collection is taken you’ll be free to go. We will handle the testing on the back end and you should know your results through the MyPrevea app within a day.

Once we collect your sample you will follow the pathway to exit the building. It’s important to follow the path so we don’t have people running into each other and we can maintain socially distanced interactions. You will be required to leave the building through the door behind me, heading out towards the soccer stadium. You will not be able to re-enter the Kress Center unless you head around to the fitness center area.

This testing process is an important part of keeping you safe and keeping a healthy campus. Thank you for following instructions. Thank you for making the appointments.

Thank you for masking. Thank you for socially distancing.

This is meant to help you have a fun and safe experience while you’re on campus.

A reminder about masks

A reminder for faculty from the Dean of Students Office that if students are not wearing a mask in your classroom, it is acceptable to approach the student and remind them they need to have a mask on during class, and direct them to the disposable masks in the classroom.   If the student refuses to put on a mask, you should restate they need to have a mask on in order to stay in the classroom, or they will need to leave. If the student does not comply, call the Dean of Students Office at 920-465-2152 with your location and the student’s name, and a staff member will respond to speak to the student. Further information is available in the classroom guidelines document.


Employee Parking: Faculty and staff can use ‘Pay-by-App’ option, payroll deduction or buy permit in person

UW-Green Bay faculty and staff can use the Pay-by-App option or purchase a permit. The Pay-by-App cost is $3 for two hours of parking or $5 for a full day. A couple of zones are considered “premium” parking at the University Union Visitor Lot and at the rear of the Kress Center, and cost more. There are five specific parking stalls in all the major academic parking stalls with a Pay-by-App option, with the exception of Studio Arts which allows parking anywhere within the lot. When you use the App, if you select the “park” button at the bottom it will use your phone’s GPS capabilities to determine your location and then show you on the map where to park. This also lists the zone number to be used when parking.

Pay-by-App parking locations:
Lab Sciences:
West side of lot near the STEM building

Baird Foundation Lot:
North Side of lot, near path leading to MAC Hall

Kress Events Center:
West Park of lot, near Handicapped area
East Side of lot, near removed tennis courts

Middle, near the 15 min.parking zones.

Studio Arts:
Entire Lot

Weidner Center:
East side of lot, near Loading Dock

Payroll Deduction will close Friday, Sept. 11

The payroll deduction option extended to current UW-Green Bay employees for parking permits is now available for the 2020-2021 academic year.  By using payroll deduction you purchase a yearly parking permit through several small deductions from your pay check that are spread out over the nine-month academic year. Our parking permit system is virtual and does not require a physical pass, using your vehicle’s license plate to verify your parking rights. If you elect to enroll in payroll deduction, you must enter in your license plate number correctly into the system or verify your previously entered license plate is correct. All vehicles must park with the license plate facing the travel portion of the parking lot so they can be read by our vehicle mounted automated license plate reader system, including those displaying only one license plate (motorcycles, registered out of state, etc).

Ad Hocs, Associate Lecturers, University or Academic Temporary Staff, or individuals who work on campus but are not employees of UW-Green Bay must go to the Bursar’s Office to make their purchase as payroll deduction is not available. Payroll deduction will close and will no longer be available after Friday Sept. 11, 2020.

Qualifying employees wishing to elect payroll deduction please use your campus log in at https://sis.uwgb.edu/parking/employee/ to enroll. After logging in please complete these steps:

  1. Enter in your license plate(s) if you are new user or verify the accuracy of your license plate(s) from last year if you are returning. Please keep in mind, you may enter multiple vehicle license plates but only one vehicle can use the permit at any given time.
  2. Check the box agreeing to the payroll deduction terms.
  3. Click the “Signup for Payroll Deduction” Button

Upon successful completion, a message will appear indicating “You have successfully signed up for payroll deduction.” You will also see the valid dates of your permit in the “Your Permit History” section.

Employees choosing not to use payroll deduction or who want to purchase term permits can do so at the Bursar’s office with AFTER 8/1/2020.  If you purchase a permit in person, you are still required to enter your license plates at https://sis.uwgb.edu/parking/employee/ . The permit purchase and entering license plates are your responsibility alone.
