Engaging students in research early in their college career can lead to many meaningful outcomes.”

A reminder The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL) has three Spring 2019 calls you may be interested in applying for:
Cofrin Library recently updated the appearance of the sign-in page that users see when accessing electronic resources. The URL of the sign-in page has not changed and still begins with https://ezproxy.uwgb.edu. When you view an article, database, or e-book through the library, you need to verify that you are affiliated with the University. For most resources this is done automatically when you are connected to the campus network, but when you are off-campus you need to sign in with your UW-Green Bay username and password. The new sign-in page better aligns with the University’s web presence and meets accessibility standards. Please contact the Research Desk if you have any questions.
