Faculty invited to take capstone experience survey

Associate Prof. Caroline Boswell (Humanities) and co-investigators are engaging in a multi-institutional study that researches the influences on instructors’ design, teaching and facilitation of culminating experiences for students often known as “capstone experiences.” To help them understand this better, please take this anonymous survey, consisting of mostly Likert scale closed-ended questions. This survey should take approximately 20 minutes. Your participation is completely voluntary but will be most appreciated by your colleagues at The College of Idaho, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, The University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, University of South Florida St. Petersburg and UW-Green Bay who are conducting this research. IRB approval at all five research sites has been secured.

Interest Surveys to be sent out

Members of the University’s Academic Staff have received an email from the Secretary of Faculty and Staff (SOFAS@uwgb.edu) with a Qualtrics link asking you to complete a Preference Survey for the Academic Staff Leadership and Involvement Committee.

On the morning of Monday, Feb. 4, 2019, the appropriate faculty and staff will receive an email asking you to complete an Interest Survey for the University Staff Elections Committee.

This is your opportunity to provide your preferences for next year’s committees. If you have not received either survey by noon on Monday, Feb. 4, 2019 please check your Junk/Spam folder to see if it has been filtered. Questions maybe be directed to SOFAS@uwgb.edu.

Please take the high-impact practices (HIP)

UW-Green Bay was selected as one of several campuses to participate in a NASH High-Impact Practices (HIPs) grant awarded to the UW System. The next step for the grant leadership team is to gather information on how HIPs are currently understood, supported and assessed in UW-Green Bay’s curricular and co-curricular programs. Please complete the survey to assist the grant leadership team, especially if your program is interested in participating further in the grant.

Cofrin Library feedback survey

This past summer a working group of faculty and staff created a vision for a Library Commons on the first and second floors of the Cofrin Library; a “connection center” in the center of campus that supports student success, showcases the learning and research at UWGB, and allows for students, faculty, staff and the community to work together. Recently endorsed by the University Leadership, the vision for the Commons is now moving forward into a planning stage for the first phase of the project, which will be the renovation of the library’s second floor. The Working Group is gathering feedback about proposed use of the new space. If you are interested in providing feedback, please complete this 10-15 minute survey open through Nov.11.

Outside group emails faculty members with survey on tenure 


UW System faculty members might be wondering about the origins of an email survey about tenure and employment being distributed this week. The emails and tenure status of all faculty and instructional staff, statewide, were provided by UW System central administration in response to an open-records request. The survey is being led and overseen by a researcher at the University of Chicago, funded by the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute. Participation in this outside survey is, of course, voluntary and solely at the discretion of the individual.

Please participate: Social media survey closes Feb. 4

UW-Green Bay social media specialist Jena Richter is asking for your help in completing a short survey on your University-related social media use. Richter is hoping to assess which areas of the University have a social media presence, who’s responsible for each, and whether that individual or individuals would be interested in participating in a listserv and/or monthly meetings about UW-Green Bay social media. She hopes to move toward a more unified and strategic social media presence for the University while increasing communication about social media between herself and the various departments. All faculty and staff are encouraged to participate — even if you’re not responsible for your area’s social media presence, you may be able to help shed light on who is. See survey.
