UW-Green Bay students in Italy
This summer, nearly 60 UW-Green Bay students will study abroad in eight countries. Summer 2019 programs include six faculty-led courses in England, France, Italy, Ireland, Poland and Spain and three interim programs, allowing individual students to take classes in Germany, Scotland or Spain.
The program with the highest number of UW-Green Bay students abroad this summer will be the faculty-led program to England. Fourteen students will leave in July for Oxford University to experience “a whirlwind adventure of the literary culture [in] England’s oldest intellectual center and the world’s second oldest surviving university.”
Students wishing to learn more about future study abroad opportunities should contact Jemma Lund, email@example.com. Applications for January 2020 are open through early fall. Follow The Office of International Education on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more updates, and visit www.uwgb.edu/study-abroad/ for complete information.

The Rotary Club of Beloit named Jeffrey Kropp ’98, ’07 (Business Administration and Master of Science in Management) Teacher of the Month for May. “Kropp’s philosophy is to get students talking in his classrooms and pull them out of their shells. He feels that strong communication skills and the ability to build relationships are key business skills which his students need to confidently develop. Another technique Kropp uses is to bring to life the content in his classrooms by having students demonstrate their knowledge with role plays and humor.” Read more from Beloit Daily News.

As of July 1, 2019, the branch campuses will no longer receive emergency notification from Rave, the emergency notification system of the former UW Colleges.
