Faculty and staff needed to help celebrate Spring Commencement

The UW-Green Bay Commencement Team needs you… The 2021 UW-Green Bay Spring/Summer Commencement is scheduled for Saturday, May 15, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. And what a reason to celebrate! It is hoped that faculty and staff will volunteer to work at the celebration and to line a portion of the route near the Weidner Center for Performing Arts (WCPA) to help celebrate our students’ graduation by holding signs, waving or cheering as graduates and their parties drive their vehicles along a pre-determined route through campus.
