UW–Green Bay was founded in 1965 and originally had an environmental emphasis, but now offers a wide array of degrees. It is unusual among Wisconsin's public universities in that it does not have a football team, due to advice from Vince Lombardi citing high costs and the fact that the city already hosted the Green Bay Packers.
