The UW-Green Bay Common Theme committee is requesting pre-proposals for the 2016-2017 academic year Common Theme. The theme should lend itself to interdisciplinary analysis and conversation, be of high academic caliber and conducive to scholarly dialogue, should lend itself to collaborative links across the campus (student affairs, academic affairs and community engagement), and be accessible, yet potentially engaging for students and the community. You can find past common theme topics on the Common Theme website along with guidelines for a pre-proposal. Pre-proposals should be submitted to Scott Furlong, Dean, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, by Nov. 16. Decisions on proposals will be made and communicated no later than Jan. 15, 2016.
