‘Return to the U’ partnership helps adults complete degrees

June 14, 2011

From University of Wisconsin Green Bay: ” ‘Return to the U’ partnership helps adults complete degrees”— A new partnership between the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and Fox Valley Technical College is encouraging former UW System students to come back and finish their degrees.

The initiative, “Return to the U,” kicked off in earnest June 6 as officials sent letters to about 3,500 individuals who have credits at UW-Green Bay, but for one reason or another did not complete their degrees at the University. “Return to the U” invites those students to either complete a degree at FVTC or another Wisconsin technical college first, or come back directly to UW-Green Bay in person or via online classes.

Respondents who show interest in returning to school will be asked to take an online Student Success Survey to assess their readiness, identify strengths and pinpoint areas in which they may need support. Returning students will be paired with volunteer alumni mentors who help them navigate their return.
