UW-Green Bay Residence Life Area Coordinator, Nicole Kurth, was selected as the recipient of the 2018 P. B. Poorman Award for Outstanding Achievement on Behalf of LGBTQ+ People. Poorman’s contributions to improving the lives of LGBTQ students, faculty and staff through research, teaching, service and advocacy all served to define the identity and activities of the system-wide Inclusivity Initiative. To honor her legacy to the state of Wisconsin, UW System and the LGBTQ+ communities have established an annual award in her name. The award recognizes UW System faculty, staff, students or community members for the excellence in advocacy, research, teaching or service on behalf of the LGBTQ+ communities. Kurth was formally recognized at an awards ceremony on Thursday, November 8, 2018, in Madison. The University will honor her with a reception on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2018 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the 1965 Room. All are welcome to attend.
