Leadership Green Bay, a program of the Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce, presented the John M. and Meredith B. Rose Business Award to UW-Green Bay at the program’s annual awards breakfast and reunion Feb. 27. Provost and Vice Chancellor Julia Wallace accepted on the institution’s behalf. UW-Green Bay has a long history of supporting Leadership Green Bay, which since 1985 has been recruiting individuals to enroll in community-based leadership training. Each year, the program welcomes 45 committed candidates (typically including one or more from campus) to participate. Those professionals gather once a month to learn about social issues and challenges facing the Green Bay area, get exposure to relevant leadership education and training skills, and become community stewards.

Kind words, and all true
Recognized with the Rose Award at Thursday’s Leadership Green Bay breakfast, University representatives in attendance heard and read very complimentary things in the program booklet and program itself. For example, the citation read, in part, “It is difficult to find a board or community project that does not involve UW-Green Bay alumni or staff in leadership positions or other key roles. Green Bay is fortunate to have a university that understands that by giving back, it strengthens not only its own organization, but the entire community. UW-Green Bay embodies the five practices of exemplary leadership.”
