All Students Thrive
In 2020 students thrive regardless of their race, ethnicity,
gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, ability,
mental health status, nationality, religion or economic
background. UW-Eau Claire students, faculty and sta
are united in a shared commitment to educational equity
and to social justice. We all engage daily in the hard work
of creating a vibrant, supportive, anti-racist campus.
This work is central to everything we do and is reected
in the growing numbers of diverse students who nd a
welcoming, supportive home at UW-Eau Claire, and in
the globally competitive education that prepares all our
students for their future.
Creating Our Future
Visit our classrooms in 2020 and you will nd what has
always set UW-Eau Claire apart: faculty and instructional
sta who are engaged, student-focused and innovative.
Amid shifting public support for higher education in
Wisconsin and across the nation, we in the UW-Eau
Claire community take charge of our future: We will
grow and thrive through increased enrollment of even
more academically prepared students as we continue to
strengthen our commitment to academic excellence.
A Campus-wide Commitment to Student Success
By 2020 campuswide support for strong student
recruitment and retention has enabled UW-Eau Claire
to invest in our faculty and sta and to start regaining
our competitive ability to retain and attract faculty who
are leaders in their academic elds and their classrooms.
New investments have supported programs that cross
disciplines, connect students with real-world challenges
and prepare students to meet the needs of Wisconsin
and the region. Faculty and sta are actively engaged in
strengthening, renewing and advancing UW-Eau Claire. A
nationally recognized University Honors Program attracts
and develops high-potential, highly motivated and high-
achieving students from across the upper Midwest. Campus
partnerships linking Student Aairs and Academic Aairs
create a campus with no boundaries to learning that
inspires students and the community.
