UW-Green Bay will celebrate its 50,000th graduate* from the University this weekend as more than 1,100 eligible graduates and their families celebrate the 2023 Spring/Summer Commencement.
The ceremony will be held on Saturday, May 13th, in two ceremonies at the Kress Events Center on the UW-Green Bay campus.
The ceremony will honor graduates and celebrate with families from all four of UW-Green Bay’s campuses (Green Bay, Marinette, Manitowoc and Sheboygan). In addition to awarding associates, bachelors, and masters degrees in high-demand areas such as nursing, education, business, and environmental sciences, the University will recognize graduates in the Rising Phoenix program, where students earn their associates degrees before graduating from high school. More than 60 Rising Phoenix students have successfully completed their associates degree, a 100% increase from 2022.
