UW-Green Bay sells chancellor’s house to fund new student meeting space | Fox 11

UW-Green Bay has recently sold a home that used to house University Leaders. The decision was made because of the other options for entertaining on and around campus, as well as the home’s label of being a “fixer-upper.” Revenue made from the sale will be used to create a new student meeting activity space; the space being considered for construction is the third floor of the Weidner Center.

All are invited to the Carnegie Dartlet presentation, Feb. 26

Over the last five years, UW-Green Bay has partnered with Carnegie Dartlet, a reputation research and marketing company, for digital advertising. In the last few months, the University extended the partnership with a research project to clarify and define UW-Green Bay’s voice and marketplace positioning. Carnegie Dartlet’s consensus-building method is built around the input of the people who know UW-Green Bay best: faculty and staff, alumni, community members and other campus stakeholders, as well as prospects. The results are important to the University’s future. The campus community is invited to the University reveal (results of the research) on Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2020 from 2 to 3 p.m. at Fort Howard Hall in the Weidner Center. The reveal will share results and recommendations that will shape the way UW-Green Bay communicates its story to future Phoenix and beyond. The event will be live streamed for convenient remote viewing.

Phoenix Cares emergency grants available

For two years, UW-Green Bay participated in an Ascendium DASH grant that was able to award emergency funds to students in need to help cover non-academic expenses and allow them to continue with their education. The grant was very successful, but it unfortunately came to an end this summer.

Campus has been working to develop an emergency grant for UWGB. The logistics of managing the grant have taken some time to figure out, but that process is now in place, and the Provost was able to provide some money to support the grant. For more information on the Emergency Grant, please visit the Phoenix Cares Emergency Grant web page.

If you know of a student who may benefit from the emergency grant, now or in the future, please encourage them to apply for the grant. Please note that there are different procedures depending on the student’s home campus. Students on the Green Bay campus may submit inquiries about the grant to emergencygrant@uwgb.edu.  Students on the Marinette, Manitowoc, or Sheboygan campuses (which still have access to the Ascendium grant) should submit applications through the link on the Phoenix Cares Emergency Grant web page.
