In 1965, the Wisconsin Legislature authorized a new degree-granting campus of the University of Wisconsin for Northeastern Wisconsin, an area of the state served at that time by centers offering freshman and sophomore courses. The city of Green Bay was selected for the new university. The Green Bay center was integrated into the new University of Wisconsin-Green Bay in the fall of 1968, when the first junior and senior level courses were offered at the old Deckner Center on Green Bay’s east side. By fall 1969, it was a new degree-granting university.
