Six months into 2018, Green Bay business is on a tear

“The Green Bay area has owned 2018,” writes Jeff Bollier of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “We’ve passed the halfway mark and the area has strung together an impressive run of wins to date. Whether it’s Foxconn buying The Watermark, KI CEO Dick Resch selling the company to employees or the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay launching a school of engineering, the region has a lot to celebrate.” See the story.

On the heels of Friday’s unanimous UW System Board of Regents approval of a Mechanical Engineering program and other critical components of a University-Community shared vision for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) at UW-Green Bay, the University and two community partners today (Feb. 12, 2018) shared additional details on how they plan to quickly move the program from concept to reality, expediting the University’s ability to meet the region’s rising demand for engineering talent.

Richard Resch, CEO of international office furniture manufacturer KI, announced his support of UW-Green Bay’s visionary engineering plan with a $5 million gift. The University will name the new school the Richard J. Resch School of Engineering in honor of Resch’s transformational gift.

The Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) Foundation announced a $1 million contribution to support STEM education — the largest single donation made by the charitable organization in its 54-year history, according to foundation board member and WPS president Kevin Fletcher.

University supporters and members of the news media gathered at the second floor lobby of the Environmental Sciences (ES) building overlooking the space in which the new STEM Innovation Center is approved for construction on the UW-Green Bay campus. Read the news release.
