Farewell to Andy Kersten

Longtime faculty member Andrew Kersten took part in his final commencement at UW-Green Bay last Saturday and, today, he left his administrative office, CL 835, for the final time in preparation for his move west. Kersten will begin his duties in late June at the University of Idaho as dean of the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences, that institution’s largest academic division with nearly 4,100 students in 11 departments. Kersten was one of only two professors here to be a four-time recipient of the Founders Association Award for Excellence. When he joined the faculty in 1997, he became the second generation of UW-Green Bay’s first family of professors. We have one last UWGB photo and a little history on his family ties.
