The Cassandra Voss Center at St. Norbert College has received a Wisconsin Humanities Council (WHC) grant of nearly $10,000, which will help fund the center’s
2018-19 GREEN: Reimagine Environment project.

The GREEN project aims to foster dialogue around one of the major issues facing the world by tapping into the knowledge, ideas and experiences of the
community. The project asks, what is our environment? Is it as simple as nature, parks and oceans? Or as complex as environmental racism, climate change,
food deserts and land rights? Year GREEN brings together scholars, artists and innovators shifting environmental paradigms and stewarding a new world.

With the help of the WHC grant, the project will bring diverse programming to St. Norbert College and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, featuring
distinguished poets and writers and a farmer-in-residence.

The WHC is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that supports and creates programs utilizing history, culture and discussion to strengthen community life for
everyone in Wisconsin. The council administers the only grant program in the state devoted to public humanities, and has awarded more than $100,000 to
school groups, museums, historical societies, colleges, and civic and cultural organizations around the state this fall.

The Cassandra Voss Center, built in 2013 to honor the life of St. Norbert College student Cassandra J. Voss, seeks to promote and facilitate critical conversations
and create spaces in which genuine dialogue can thrive.
