UW-Green Bay Allows Students to Study Wherever Summer Takes Them

Green Bay, Wis.—The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay announced today a line-up of 200+ summer courses—the majority of those online—for Summer 2021. Registration opened April 5, 2021.

“We want to help students to continue to pursue a degree wherever they are. Last year, even during the pandemic, we had the highest summer enrollment in the University’s history. This year, students will be provided that same popular option for the majority of our courses,” said Executive Director of Admissions Rachele Bakic. “We found our students to be appreciative of the opportunity to get ahead, catch-up, or maintain their path to graduation.”

Summer courses are offered in four-, six-, eight- and 10-week sessions across most of the University’s undergraduate program areas and run from May 24 through the end of summer. More information, including how to apply, how to register, tuition and more, can be found at www.uwgb.edu/summer.

Last year more than 2,200 students—1,800 of those current UW-Green Bay students—took summer courses at UW-Green Bay, which was the fastest growing University in the UW System.

Prof. Weinschenk featured in Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, ‘Wisconsin voting patterns in April election races mirrored November’

As politics is nationalized, April’s nonpartisan elections are looking more and more like November’s partisan ones.

Five months after the November 2020 presidential race, Wisconsin held a contest for state school superintendent.
The November election was close.
The April election wasn’t.
The November election attracted massive attention.
The April election didn’t.
The November election drew 3.3 million voters to the polls.
The April election drew about 912,000.
The November election was partisan.
The April election was nonpartisan.
But as different as they were, the two elections did have something in common. The geographic voting patterns were remarkably similar.

By and large, the counties that performed the best for Democrat Joe Biden last fall also performed the best for the winning and more liberal candidate in this month’s race for state school superintendent, Jill Underly.

And the counties that performed the best for Republican Donald Trump last fall generally performed the best for Underly’s more conservative opponent, Deborah Kerr.

This happened despite vast differences in turnout, spending and media attention in the two races and the fact that one office — the presidency — is the ultimate partisan prize and the other is a low-profile, nonpartisan office overseeing the state’s public schools.

“It’s an indication of the nationalization” of our politics, said University of Wisconsin-Green Bay political scientist Aaron Weinschenk, who has tracked the increasingly partisan cast of April election contests.

Part of history: Students aid vaccination effort – Milwaukee VA Medical Center

Call it a win-win-win-win.Thanks to a program involving University of Wisconsin-Green Bay nursing students, many good things are happening at the Green Bay VA Health Care Clinic: Student nurses are getting hands-on experience by giving COVID-19 shots. The clinic is getting help in staffing vaccination clinics .The students are getting tuition aid. Veterans are being kept safe. The COVID-19 Tuition Refund Program, launched last year by Tommy Thompson, interim University of Wisconsin System president, is yielding all those positive results.

The program allows nursing students to receive tuition credit of $500 if they log at least 16 hours in a clinic, giving COVID-19 shots.While most of those students are working in community clinics, two students from UW-Green Bay are giving shots in the Green Bay VA clinic.

“It’s a neat experience,” said Alyssa Ehlke, a sophomore in her first year in the nursing program. “It’s nice that they’re giving us the practice, and we get a little extra money back for it. Plus I’m able to work through the pandemic.”
