Alumni Newsletters
The online newsletter provides continually refreshed updates for happenings both on campus as well as opportunities to meet and greet fellow alumni at various events across the area. Because of the long-term focus of the UW-Green Bay campus on environmental issues, many alumni are interested in keeping abreast of both research efforts and current status of campus commitment to these issues. As a result, sustainability and environmental topics are included in both online and the quarterly alumni magazine, Inside.

Also available on the alumni website is a video presentation on the history of UW-Green Bay’s core environmental mission.
