Stocking stuffer? Associate Prof. Steve Meyer provides salsa exchange for scholarship contributions

Looking for that perfect stocking stuffer (albeit you will need a really sturdy stocking)? Are you hosting a holiday party and have not decided on the appetizers/snacks (hint: red is the perfect color this holiday season)? Thinking about what to serve your guests when you host your “Fill-in-the-blank” Bowl Game party?  How about some of Associate Prof. of Natural and Applied Science Steve Meyer’s salsa?

Meyer always has a supply of mild, medium, hot and “hot +” salsa in his office. For a contribution to the Katie Hemauer Memorial Scholarship, you can take home a pint or two (or an entire case) of salsa. Mix and match various levels of salsa hotness and see who can tolerate the “hot +” salsa at your New Year’s Eve party! It is all for a great cause—UW-Green Bay students—while remembering and honoring one of our outstanding alums!

Reminder: UW-Green Bay Liberal Arts Essay Scholarship deadline is Monday, Mar. 18

The UW-Green Bay Office of the Provost is pleased to announce the third annual Liberal Arts Essay Scholarship Competition. This undergraduate essay competition aims to promote understanding of the purpose and value of a liberal arts and science education. The submission deadline is Monday, Mar. 18, 2019. Submissions must be sent electronically to the Provost’s Office c/o Clifton Ganyard at; all essays must be attached as a PDF.

This Year’s Topic: Universities have long been a venue where students and scholars seek to “sift and winnow” in pursuit of truth. Yet, recently the “death of facts” has been announced and the “age of post-truth” proclaimed. How does liberal arts education connect to the search for truth and how should it respond to how facts or truth are conceptualized in the broader culture, political and otherwise?

All submissions are to be original essays, 1,000-1,250 words in length, typed, double-spaced.  Each essay must include a title page with the following information:  title of essay, student’s name, major, home address, e-mail address, telephone number, and the following statement: “I hereby affirm that this is an original essay and my own work.”

Global Studies announces renaming of Global Citizenship Scholarship in honor of Karen Dalke

Global Studies faculty members are proud to announce the renaming of its Global Citizenship Scholarship to the Karen Dalke Memorial Global Citizenship Scholarship. “Our beloved colleague and Global Studies faculty member Karen Dalke, who tragically passed away this summer, was a world citizen, enthusiastic international traveler, advocate for cross-cultural understanding and a passionate champion of students, especially first generation and non-traditional students. Senior lecturer Dalke (Public and Environmental Affairs) traveled to all continents and it was probably just a matter of time before she would visit Antarctica, too! Her spirit and commitment to global citizenship exemplify the goals and priorities of Global Citizenship Scholarship supporting short-term study abroad travel of UW-Green Bay students.” To contribute to the renamed scholarship, please select the Karen Dalke Memorial Global Citizenship Scholarship from the list of All Scholarships on this website.
