University of Wisconsin-Green Bay
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is a comprehensive public institution with an enrollment of approximately 6,700 students, exceptional academic facilities and affordable, high-quality programs at the undergraduate and graduate-degree levels. An interdisciplinary academic approach encourages students to be creative problem-solvers who value diversity, susta...inability and community involvement. With a scenic bayshore campus and metropolitan mission, UW-Green Bay is convenient to both the Door County resort area and the dynamic economies of the New North and Fox Valley regions. Excellent library and computer facilities, well-equipped classrooms, abundant fine arts opportunities, Division I athletics and premium student housing are prominent. Founded in 1965 and a member institution of the tradition-rich University of Wisconsin System, UW-Green Bay boasts more than 32,000 alumni. Graduates live and work worldwide, but many remain in Northeast Wisconsin to serve as the region’s teachers, health care professionals, business people, planners and civic leaders. The University is strongly linked to its community.
The UW-Green Bay academic plan promotes hands-on learning through internships, research and team projects. It also demands that students have the ability to make connections — to examine issues from different perspectives, and to work effectively with those from other fields. UW-Green Bay is structured in a way educators describe as "interdisciplinary." Academic programs are grouped not by narrow departments but by practical areas of interest. A more thorough exploration of the University’s approach to academics, the liberal arts tradition and serving the common good can be found in the Undergraduate Catalog, online.
