Throwback Thursday: Spring ’70 Ban the Car Campaign

Throughout time, student activism has played a role on many university campuses, including Green Bay. In spring 1970, UWGB students led a “Ban the Car Campaign.”

This photo was donated by one of the student participants, Keith Pamperin (second from left).

UWGB Alums can you tell us more or identify any of the other people?

Throwback Thursday: Ethnic Heritage Center

We are always pleased to receive new donations for the University Archives. Justin Mallet, director of the UWGB American Intercultural Center, recently gave us boxes of photo albums and documents.

The items tell the story of the Ethnic Heritage Center which was established in 1971-1972 “to promote an awareness of, sensitivity to, and acceptance of the cultural differences represented by the diverse people of the region.” The Ethnic Heritage Center transitioned to the American Intercultural Center in the fall of 1981.
