Last chance to register: Becoming a Student-Ready U

This year, the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning’s Instructional Development Institute coincides with UW-Green Bay’s “Becoming a Student-Ready University” initiative, January 18, 2018, sponsored by the Office of the Provost and Business and Finance. The morning will kick off with a special keynote by Christine Harrington, who will speak to the entire campus community about how small actions can have a big impact on student achievement. She will ask us to consider how student experiences in and out of the classroom make a huge difference in terms of persistence and goal completion, and she will follow-up by encouraging us to discuss the small actions that staff, faculty, and administrators can take to help students succeed. UWGB faculty and staff are able to attend Harrington’s breakfast keynote and lunch workshop as well as a series of development workshops throughout the day. There is no cost to attend and meals will be provided with your registration. Space is limited, so register today.

UW-Green Bay Police aided in Lambeau arrest

In case you missed it, an incident at Lambeau Field recently called attention to the preparation and collaboration by neighboring police and firefighters in responding and reacting to potentially dangerous situations. UW-Green Bay Police were among those responding to the potential “active shooter” dispatch and used automated license plate reader camera in all the parking lots surrounding the stadium to assist in the investigation. From Green Bay, 27 officers responded. So did dozens of others, from Ashwaubenon Public Safety, the Wisconsin State Patrol, the Brown County Sheriff’s Office and UW-Green Bay.
