Emeritus Prof. Michael Kraft published Green New Deal article

UW-Green Bay Emeritus Prof. Michael Kraft (Environmental Science & Policy) has written the article “National View: Ignoring climate change exceeds price of dealing with it” for the Duluth News Tribune. “The idea of a Green New Deal has risen fast on the nation’s political agenda,” Emeritus Prof. Michael Kraft writes.

Emeritus faculty member Brian Sutton’s ‘Searching for Romeo’ to be performed in Idaho

For those of you who missed “Searching for Romeo” during its two runs on the UW-Green Bay campus, you will now have another chance to see it. You just have to go to Idaho to do it, according to creator and emeritus faculty member Brian Sutton. The musical is slated to be performed by Vision Charter School in Caldwell, Idaho this upcoming spring. “Searching for Romeo” had its world premiere in the Jean Weidner Theatre in July 2012, and the upcoming production in Caldwell will end in late April 2019. As Sutton notes, very few plays are still being produced nearly seven years after their premiere. As the Bee Gees (and Sutton) so eloquently put it, “Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin’ alive.” Sutton messaged from his new winter residence in Austin, Tex.

UW-Green Bay learned of the passing of award-winning faculty member Joseph Moran (Natural and Applied Sciences). Services are Monday. According to the obituary, Moran, 74, died peacefully Wednesday, June 20, 2018, at Angel’s Touch Assisted Living in Ledgeview.

He began teaching at UW-Green Bay in 1969 as an instructor of meteorology in the College of Environmental Sciences and retired as a professor of Natural and Applied Sciences in 2001 with emeritus status. In 1993 he received the Founders Award for Teaching Excellence. Also in 1993 the UW System Regents Teaching Award, cited Moran for his “profound ability to communicate subject matter effectively and inspire in students an enthusiasm for learning.”

“His humor and occasionally exaggerated Boston accent kept his students engaged, whether he was teaching meteorology, earth science or environmental science,” the obituary reads. In 1991, Moran was named the Barbara Hauxhurst Cofrin Professor of Natural Science and in 1994 received the Boston College Alumni Award for Teaching Excellence and was included in the American Men and Women of Science.

Moran consistently received high rankings in student and peer evaluations. In a statement of his teaching philosophy, Moran explained “I learned to respect students as people, to recognize their strengths, to deal honestly with their short-comings, to encourage them to tackle things that they didn’t think they could do, to be ever vigilant for the late-bloomer and to encourage them to keep their university experience in its proper perspective.”

You are invited: Service and Emeritus presentations on Thursday, Feb. 11

The confusion seems to come into play because UWGB did not have a mid-year convocation this year. However, faculty and staff will still be recognized for years of service and emeritus status, from 4 to 4:45 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 11 in Phoenix AB. All of campus is invited and encouraged to attend the recognition ceremony. Following the ceremony, there will be a brief reception in Phoenix C, only for recipients and members of their families.
