Slideshow: Retirement gathering for Spielmann

party-509x342
About 150 campus and community friends gathered at the Shorewood clubhouse Monday (July 6) to honor Dan Spielmann as he retires as chancellor’s chief of staff after a nearly 40-year career as one of UW-Green Bay’s most high-profile and longest-serving administrators and faculty members.

Chancellor Gary L. Miller and former Chancellor Tom Harden shared brief remarks. Miller read from a legislative proclamation introduced by state Rep. Eric Ginrich and Sen. Dave Hansen. It praised Spielmann for his record of achievement including his service as Phoenix Athletics director during the program’s rise as an NCAA Division I contender, his role as legal counsel and policy adviser to all six chancellors, his effectiveness as a community and legislative liaison, his passion for teaching, and his involvement in University fundraising, among other contributions. The citation also noted Spielmann’s long working relationship with former Associate Chancellor Donald Harden, his association with hall of fame coaches Dick Bennett, Carol Hammerle and Aldo Santaga, and his positive interactions with individuals both on and off campus.

Spielmann was presented with gifts including the Legislature’s proclamation, a large framed aerial view of the UW-Green Bay campus and a travel bag, among other items. In expressing appreciation to the friends and colleagues in attendance, he talked about leaving his Madison legal practice as a young attorney in 1976 to join the faculty of the young UWGB… and never regretting the move despite the challenges of his new position(s). Spielmann closed his remarks by thanking Liz, his wife of 42 years, and sons Kurt and Jeff (who attended with his infant daughter).

Travel tip: Course provides trip inside human body

UWGB travel course in GermanyIt was a return trip for UW-Green Bay Human Biology professors Amanda Nelson and Donna Ritch, but a whole new world for 17 UWGB Human Biology and Bellin College of Nursing students.

The group recently returned home from a summer travel course to Guben, Germany, and a chance to work with world-renowned German anatomist Gunther von Hagens — inventor of the preservation process plastination, now made famous by the Body Worlds touring exhibits.

The course is designed around the use of human cadavers in teaching and research environments, which includes the four-day workshop at the Plastinarium and a trip to Auschwitz. The students were able to meet and pose for a picture with von Hagens during a tour of the facilities.

The workshop led students through each step of the process of plastination, from autopsies to dissection to tissue dehydration to positioning to curing. In addition to completing a full dissection of two human cadavers, the UWGB students had other opportunities — injecting and positioning animal hearts and kidneys, among them.

Human Biology senior Crystal Remsza and her roommate Bridget Schedler decided to explore the experience together.

“I figured any experience I can get will help me in the long run, but it turned out better than I expected,” Remsza said. “The plastinarium experience was incredible,” Remsza said. “Dr. Nelson told us before leaving that we would get a lot of hands on experience and she was absolutely right. Dissecting cadavers was something I never imagined myself doing, but I loved it. I was able to apply everything I’ve learned about the human body from my classes to a real specimen in front of me. The coolest part of my time at the plastinarium was removing all of the internal organs in one piece. There were four of us working on this and once we finally removed everything from the heart, lungs, intestines, etc. it was a proud moment!”

Schedler, a senior from Grafton, Wis., who hopes to be a physical therapist one day, said the experience was “amazingly unforgettable.” “I gained a unique perspective on human anatomy that cannot be taught from a book. It was much more intriguing than anything I thought it could be.”

Likewise, senior human biology major Kelly Strasser said that everyday the trip provided a unique experience.

“From your basic muscle dissection of human cadavers to an all-out autopsy, we were able to carry out tasks I had never anticipated would be possible as an undergraduate student,” Strasser said. “Most importantly, the freedom that we were given to explore and problem solve during our dissections was incredible. The staff encouraged us to figure out on our own which techniques were most effective for a given task. This helped to build our independence and confidence as students.”

The students’ enthusiasm is something Prof. Nelson, who was leading her third course to Guben, has come to expect.

“The students were very engaged in the process of plastination and their intense focus was palpable by the plastinarium staff,” said Nelson. “They were in awe of the hands-on experience they received. If they wanted to do something, they just asked and soon found themselves doing just that (i.e., using a saw to remove a human skull, witnessing the preparation of a lion display).”

“In addition to the content of the course, I always hope that the students immerse themselves in the culture of the countries we visit,” said Nelson, who has led her third summer tour to Guben.

The group enjoyed side trips to both Krakow and Prague, embracing the culture of Poland and the Czech Republic, according to Nelson, and visiting a concentration camp, as well.

“That visit prompted discussion of Nazi experimentation and the controversy regarding the use of the results of these experiments,” she said. “Prior to traveling, the students were required to give group presentations on similar topics, such as organ/body donation, eugenics, Nazi experimentation.

The experience will pay dividends down the road, when most of the students prepare for medical careers and graduate school.

“Without a doubt, this experience provides a unique talking point at a graduate school interview,” Nelson said. “Securing a seat in a professional program has become increasingly difficult and this course is a highlight on many of our students’ resumes.”

Remsza, who hopes to be accepted into dental school upon graduating from UWGB in May of 2016, said the experience have her a glimpse of a future in the medical field.

“This experience was important to me because it allowed me to really imagine myself with a career in the medical field,” she said. “I am even more anxious to go on to dental school and I’m curious to see what my future holds.”

Strasser, who will begin applying to athletic training programs at the end of this summer sees a direct link between this trip and pursuing her future career goals.

“I now have so much I can add to my resume for graduate school applications,” she said. “With programs being so competitive, it is important to participate in activities that make your resume stand out. My experiences in the plastinarium will certainly do that. I now have all these unique experiences I can draw from for my application and interview processes that will help me stand out and be remembered.”

Close-ups recap: Professor Style hosts India Dinner Lecture

UWGB India Dinner LectureUW-Green Bay Professor Christine Style enlightened and educated the audience as part of the UWGB Office of Outreach dinner lecture series, May 27. Her program focused on Nek Chand and the Rock Garden in Chandigarh (Northern India) — one of the largest in the world, and one of the world’s largest ongoing mosaic works comprising 20 acres. Style, a professor of Art and Design, presented the history of 90-year-old Nek Chand, the Rock Garden creator/director and his move to India. She also spoke about Hindu and Muslim Culture.

Style spoke about a related foundation that was dear to both her and her belated husband Anton ‘Tony’ Rajer. Rajer, it is said, was the moving force behind the Nek Chand Foundation for 10 years. Prior to his death in 2011, Rajer spent much of his personal time advocating for Nek Chand and is said to be largely responsible for saving Nek Chand’s other Rock Garden in Kerala. Learn more about Nek Chand and the foundation that Prof. Style is involved with at: www.nekchand.com. Enjoy the gallery.

Gallery: Honors grads honored at Friday reception

Student Honors Reception

More than 250 people turned out for the May 2015 Honors Graduate Reception hosted by UW-Green Bay Friday, May 15, in the grand foyer of the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts. The event welcomed about 80 May graduates who would be graduating the following day with summa, magna or cum laude honors. They were joined by family members in town for the big weekend, and faculty and staff extending best wishes. Speakers during a brief program included Chancellor Gary L. Miller, Dean of Students Brenda Amenson-Hill, outgoing SGA President Vanya Koepke and Alumni Relations Director Kari Moody. Moody said the event, tried for the first time with the December 2014 honors grads, appears to have a bright future as a permanent part of Commencement weekend. The Alumni Association views it as an opportunity to connect with some of its newest members, and the many out-of-town visitors (including some online students who had visited campus rarely if at all) said they enjoyed the opportunity to mingle with members of the UW-Green Bay community.

UWGB sculpture students display their work in the spirit of contemporary artists

top-story-artStudents in UW-Green Bay Prof. Alison Stehlik’s “Intermediate Sculpture” class were asked to create a site-specific installation in the spirit of a contemporary installation artist.

The students researched various artists to use as a “mentor” artist — someone they would emulate for the purpose of this project, either in terms of artistic process and/or aesthetic or cultural/social motivations. Stehlik says most of the pieces will be up until the end of the semester (but forewarns that that bubble-wrapped elevator could be running out of pop potential soon!)

The students and the locations of the art are:

Gena Selby, Flag, Mary Ann Cofrin Hall

Mike Arendt, Political Dissonance, airlock of Environmental Science building

Natalie Vann, Untitled Book Heads, Rosewood Cafe, Wood Hall

Amanda Urmanski, Untitled Installation with VHS tape, Studio Arts Cafeteria
