No matter who you are, where you come from, or what you want to be—never stop learning because life never stops teaching.

We are the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay: a regionally comprehensive university with campuses in Green Bay, Manitowoc, Marinette, and Sheboygan. We’re future-minded contenders, standing on the shoulders of a trailblazing heritage to transform the students, the communities, and the region we serve. Learning at UW-Green Bay has paths as unique as our students. Whether you’re a first-year first-generation student or a returning non-traditional student, our experts get you to your goals from wherever you are.

Choose from our 200+ academic programs to craft your career, and seven modes for class delivery means you can learn how you learn best! Learn from brilliant professors who care about your success! Not only are they experts in their fields (nearly all of them have PhDs or the highest degree in their field), but they become mentors to their students as they help to connect them with internships, field placements and more. You’ll get more one-on-one time, since 92% of our classes have 40 students or fewer.

UW-Green Bay gives you more bang for your buck. College Factual consistently ranks us in the top 10% of US college values. Over a million dollars awarded annually in both need-based and merit-based scholarships allows our students to break through barriers—and 81% of first-year students receive financial aid.

Our mission and vision is to be a university that fearlessly meets challenges, solves problems, embraces diversity, cares about our region and provides access to education for all who want it. Through these actions, we honor the innovative spirit of the founders of the University and move ourselves forward.” — Michael Alexander, Chancellor of UW-Green Bay
