"Bold Beginnings and Beyond" History Lecture and Reception
UW-Parkside's founding in the iconic year 1968 was a reflection of an expansive era of public investment and optimism in the state. In the five decades since, UW-Parkside has continued to reflect the ever-changing social and political currents of the times. This presentation surveys our university's history from its origins in the two-year UW Center campuses in Kenosha and Racine to the present. The College of Social Science and Professional Studies invites retired UWP staff and faculty to join us for this reception, free lunch, and presentation by Emeritus faculty, Laura Gellott.
