Below is a message from Director of Residence Life Gail Sims-Aubert to Phoenix families regarding Residence Life at UW-Green Bay.
We share your concerns.
We know you want your UW-Green Bay student to be able to move to campus this fall, but you also want them to be safe. We do, too.
The Office of Residence Life is collaborating with our campus health/wellness partner, Prevea, and Brown County Public Health to develop community standards and safety measures for our campus housing. Though we cannot predict the future, we do feel confident that we can move our residential students in to their fall assignments at the end of August as planned.
The process of moving to campus and the practice of living in a communal setting will likely look quite different in the coming academic year. However, all decisions to alter cleaning practices and services to our residential students are being driven by an abundance of caution. These new strategies will be communicated to both you and your UW-Green Bay student in the coming weeks, so that final preparations can be made to move to campus.
We also recognize that the pandemic has created significant change for many. We are aware that in some cases family finances have been impacted, students’ sense of security has been altered and others have had to recognize vulnerabilities in regard to personal health. For these reasons, we want to work with you and your student to create the living situation that best meets their needs. If your student has questions or concerns about their fall assignment, please encourage them to reach out and allow us the opportunity to position them for success as they move forward with their college career.
Thank you for working with your student in choosing UW-Green Bay.
