Vice Chancellor Eric Arneson and UW System rep Carl Hampton meet with key multicultural leaders

UW-Green Bay Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Campus Climate, Eric Arneson, partnered with Carl Hampton, special assistant to UW System President Ray Cross for Diversity and Inclusion, to speak to key multicultural leaders in the Green Bay community. The purpose of the Nov. 1 day of outreach was to connect UW-Green Bay to important stakeholders in the Green Bay community in terms of diversity and inclusion. At each meeting, discussions were held regarding how their particular community viewed their role and place in the greater Green Bay area and also in regards to UW-Green Bay. “All of the conversations were fruitful and showed a clear desire for ongoing and meaningful connections with UW-Green Bay and our students, faculty, and staff,” Arneson said. Throughout the course of the day Arneson and Hampton met with key Green Bay area multicultural leaders. The day included conversations with Diversity and Inclusion Director and Title IX Coordinator at NWTC, Mohammed Bey; Natalia Sidon from the Green Bay Police Department, Sister Melanie and her team at Casa-Alba Hispanic Resource Center; Ron “Tehassi” Hill, Chairman of the Oneida Nation; Celestine Jeffreys, chief of staff to Green Bay Mayor Mike Schmitt; and Said Hassan, president of COMSA, representing the Somali population of Green Bay.
