Local news came to campus on July 1, 2020 to interview Chancellor Alexander on the campuses’ reopening. Watch the news coverage below:
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has released a detailed document with information on its plans to reopen campuses for the fall semester. The document lays out requirements for those on campus, such as mask wearing and social distancing. It also details alternate work options for employees and procedures for those who become ill.
Wisconsin voters will be back at the polls in just 48 days for the partisan primary election and Green Bay believes it has enough locations lined up for people to vote at in person. UW-Green Bay will once again be a polling location in August and November.
When the UW Green Bay Campuses, including Sheboygan County, reopen in July, operations won’t look anything like they did before the pandemic forced them to close in March. The University released its “Return to Campus” documents outlining new plans and procedures put in place to offer education and safety at the same time.
Effective July 1st, all employees and students will be able to be on-campus Mondays through Fridays between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., although all summer course sessions are still online-only. That access is for students, staff and faculty only, and the general public will have to wait until September to visit.

See what local media is saying:
The UW System has officially released its recommendations for all 13 of its institutions, when it comes to re-opening for the fall 2020-21 semester.
“I think just the continued understanding that there are more steps we’re going to take, primarily long-term, in terms of changing behaviors to protect ourselves and other people,” says Vice President of Administration Robert Cramer.
This school year will look much different than years past, as it is beginning during a global pandemic. Recommendations for all UW schools include limiting class sizes to less than 50 students. Any class with more than that should be taught virtually.
Limiting the number of people utilizing the dining halls at one time is another suggestion.
“Social distancing continues to be seen as an important way to reduce the risk of exposing others,” Cramer says.
It appears the Phoenix is welcoming the UW-Green Bay family back to the nest. Photographer Dan Moore captured some of the splendor of spring at UW-Green Bay, recently. Check out these gorgeous photographs.
