Research on the Rise 2021

As the state’s youngest regional comprehensive university, UW-Green Bay has made an enormous impact on our region, state and beyond. That has been driven in no small part by the amazing research that is happening here. 

The breadth of research at the University has grown tremendously in recent years. This reflects our high-quality faculty, staff and students across all campus locations, as well as our culture of continuous innovation and fearless efforts to improve the health of our people and environment for the next generation.

Confidence in Giving

Generous benefactors who give gifts to the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Foundation believe in higher education. It is incumbent upon the Foundation to earn each donor’s trust by ensuring gifts are acknowledged in a timely way, and the impact of your gift is demonstrated. One way that we can demonstrate this is through transparency in our financial reporting.
