“I continue to be incredibly proud of how our students have persevered throughout the pandemic. We want students to continue to have an amazing experience at UW-Green Bay. The 70% vaccination milestone helps everyone stay safe and on track to reach their educational goals,” said UW-Green Bay Chancellor Michael Alexander.
The UW-System has its own ’70 for 70′ campaign, which fully vaccinated students that attend universities that reach the 70% threshold can be eligible to win one of 70 scholarships valued at $7,000. The 70% threshold is based on fall 2020 full-time-equivalent enrollment and excludes students studying only online.
“I’m thrilled the students of UW-Stevens Point and UW-Green Bay are getting vaccinated,” said System President Tommy Thompson.
