About Us

Our Philosophy

What is our philosophy on the co-curricular experience?
At UWEC, The Division of Student Affairs and the AIL Staff is committed to providing and supporting co-curricular activities and events that entertain, challenge, and promote the exchange of ideas and extend the learning experiences beyond the classroom. Co-curricular activities are available to complement our strong academic tradition in order to give students a well-rounded college experience. Both are keys to collegiate success and together, represent and uphold the integrity of the UWEC Mission Statement.

UW-Eau Claire Mission Statement
We foster in one another creativity, critical insight, empathy, and intellectual courage, the hallmarks of a transformative liberal education and the foundation for active citizenship and lifelong inquiry.
