A new mission (sort of) for UW-Green Bay

Actually, it’s a more complete special mission. UW-Green Bay appended its campus mission statement last fall in response to a UW System and Board of Regents request that the various UW System institutions standardize their respective documents to include specific reference to programs of study and degrees granted.
