Dean Dornbush talks to WPR about graduate tuition increases and our growing program array

In the news last week, University of Wisconsin System regents approved of raising graduate tuition at nine schools and out-of-state undergraduate tuition at six schools. “Graduate programing is our faster growing area on campus, with annual enrollment increases of around 20% over the last several years,” said Matthew Dornbush, UW-Green Bay’s director of graduate studies and associate vice chancellor. “Clearly, it is always a difficult decision to increase tuition at any level, we recognize the implications of our pricing on our students, but tuition is the main source of funding for our institution and we have to invest in ourselves to maintain quality and to expand the opportunities available for the citizens of NE Wisconsin.” See the story.

Academic Staff representation needed for dean of the Cofrin School of Business search

The Academic Staff Committee would like to invite all members of the UW-Green Bay Academic Staff/Instructional Academic Staff to volunteer for a very important search committee. Provost Davis has charged all campus governance groups to provide names of representatives to serve on the search and screen committee for the dean of the Cofrin School of Business position.

If you are interested in serving, please respond directly to Jamee Haslam at haslamj@uwgb.edu  no later than noon on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019. Please include a brief statement of what you can bring to the search committee. Once the names of all those interested are gathered, the Academic Staff Committee will forward recommendations to Davis. Successful volunteers will be notified by the Provost’s office. Specific questions about the committee itself (e.g. committee makeup, timeline, responsibilities, etc.), can be directed to Davis.
