League Legacy

Women have played an intricate role throughout UWGB's history.
The University League is just one Example.
The First Female Leaders
of our
and their Legacy

The University of Wisconsin- Green Bay University League began in 1969, only four short years after our campus’s founding. The University League played an intricate role for women on our campus providing a space for them to hold leadership roles, organize events, and give back to the community of Green Bay.

The primary goals of the University League provided housing for new faculty members, social events for the school’s faculty, provide community outreach programs, engage in a relationship with the city and the University, and raise scholarship funds for students.

The University League provided community for female faculty and for wives of faculty members in which they were able to come together and work towards making campus open to further intellectual conversations through social events.
