UW-Green Bay prepares for classes during a pandemic
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – The University of Wisconsin Green Bay is preparing for the start of fall classes in just two weeks. A lot has gone into planning with options to keep students and faculty safe. UW-Green Bay Chancellor Michael Alexander said in essence the school is building two universities to get through the pandemic.“ Many of our students want their courses online, and we’re providing options for those things to occur. Many of our students want them in person and we’re providing those options, so we’ve had to build out both sides of the university to help accommodate all those needs,” said Chancellor Michael Alexander. The campus has sanitation stations and is planning to have fewer students in each classroom. There are signs, posters, and plenty of reminders. The university expects everyone to do things like washing hands, wearing a mask, and social distancing, but the chancellor said above all he hopes everyone respects each other.
