UWSP College of Professional Studies

Marty's Message

With just two weeks of classes remaining, I'd like to take this time to highlight two faculty members who will represent the College of Professional Studies at the Winter Commencement on Dec. 17. School of Health Promotion & Human Development Professor Jasia Steinmetz and Professor Lisa Bardon from the School of Education were chosen to be marshals for the CPS as they both stand for the CPS values of proactive, resourceful, connected, caring. Jasia with her recently published book "Eat Local" and Lisa with the great opportunities she creates for her students—these are just two great examples of how our faculty impact our community and students.
