The University of Wisconsin--Green Bay. 1970-71.
Wisconsin Univ., Green Bay.
This general catalogue describes the University of Wisconsin at Green Bay (UWGB). This new and innovative institution has set out to "meet the challenge of a new generation of youth who will not be denied less than they have been encouraged to dream." The special focus of the UWGB academic plan is on ecology, or the study of man in relation to his surroundings. Because ecological inquiry is pan-disciplinary, UWGB has organized its colleges within the framework of environmental themes rather than grouping them according to traditional disciplines. The College of Environmental Sciences focuses on the problems of the natural environment, while the College of Community Sciences focuses on the social environment. The College of Human Biology centers its attention on human adaptability--the impingement of the environment on the individual. The College of Creative Communication emphasizes the problem of human identity, or the individual's impingement on his environment. All students are required to select an environmental problem or area on which to focus (30 hours), but may also take "options" in a specific discipline, a pre-professional program, or professional programs in business, public administration, or education. At the core of the academic plan is a 4-year series of liberal education seminars for all students. In order to serve the students, community and region more fully, sub-regional campuses are located in Fox Valley, Manitowoc, and Marinette Counties. (DS)
