The largest fall class of graduates will cross the stage on Saturday, while being urged to “make a difference” in the region. A total of 558 eligible graduates and their families celebrate the 2022 Fall Commencement, Saturday, December 17th, 2022 in two ceremonies at the Weidner Center.

Degrees to be awarded include Associate’s, Bachelor’s, and Master’s degrees in high-demand areas such as business, environmental sciences, psychology, liberal arts, nursing, engineering, and education. The ceremony will honor graduates and celebrate with families from all four of UW-Green Bay’s campuses (Green Bay, Marinette, Manitowoc, and Sheboygan). This is the University’s 106th Commencement ceremony since its first in June of 1970. Graduates join the more than 49,000 proud Phoenix alumni.

“Celebrating the largest fall graduating class this weekend speaks to the momentum we have as a university, and shows that we are meeting the needs of our regional workforce,” said UW-Green Bay Chancellor Michael Alexander. “It is my hope that our graduates will continue to fearlessly face challenges and solve problems to ensure the vibrancy of Northeast Wisconsin. As we rise as a university, we rise together as a community and region.”
