The Green Bay Press-Gazette published an editorial Sunday (Sept. 6) congratulating UW-Green Bay on its 50th anniversary. “A four-year public university can have a positive impact on the surrounding community,” the editorial noted, offering a few examples. “With its student body of about 7,000, it gives area high school students who want to go to college a nearby university. It also brings in students from outside the area, state, and nation, exposing students and people in the community a glimpse of the diversity they’ll find in the world. It becomes a major employer, providing jobs to educators, professionals, hourly staff and students. It also benefits the community economically in at least three ways: It brings in a population that spends money in the area, it supplies area businesses talented and trained workers, and it partners with experts and companies to provide opportunities and support.” The pieces goes onto mention other examples including the SBDC, Upward Bound, Camp Lloyd, EMBI, partnerships with other colleges and K-12, and the fact most grads stay local.
