University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire

Discover your purpose AND passion

Prepare to go after your dreams — including the ones you didn't know you had. Blugolds are not defined solely by one discipline or profession. Instead you're encouraged to embrace your multiple passions. At the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire we call this the Power of AND.

Many opportunities will help you discover your AND. Maybe an experience in another country or culture will make you think differently than you have before. A faculty-student collaborative research project you work on may allow you to present at a national conference. That friend you met in the dorms or a student org could become a successful business partner. The possibilities are endless.

UWEC students on immersion trip

Pursue more than a degree

HIP and with it

You can expect more than 120 credits and a piece of paper when you leave this place, and HIPs are a big part of how you get there. Research, internships, service-learning, immersive travel experiences at home and abroad — we call these high-impact practices (HIPs). We're pretty darn good at all of them, and undergraduate research is something we've been recently recognized for nationally. These experiences ultimately help make you a better citizen, a better employee and a more well-rounded human being.

Explore opportunities

My experience in kinesiology was irreplaceable. I was presented with opportunities to conduct research, train my own clients, and complete a 12-week internship. All of which provided memories and knowledge that put me ahead in my career and made my time at Eau Claire some of the best years of my life!

Collaborate with the best

Faculty have your back

These hardworking professionals are here for one reason. You. Not only will they remember your name in class, they'll remember it when you're walking around campus two years later. They'll share knowledge with you, work with you in the lab or out in the community on high-caliber research, and host get-togethers on and off campus. If you're willing to commit to your dreams, faculty will work tirelessly to help you make them come true.

Learn about your fearless leaders

The care the faculty have for their students is shown immensely through the effort put into daily class, field trips, and student research. The life-long relationships, experiences, and opportunities I had at UWEC do not compare to many universities.
