We Prepare You for Success

The UW-Eau Claire Center for Health Administration and Aging Services Excellence (CHAASE) is a unique partnership that combines the energy of academia with provider organizations and professional associations.

CHAASE serves as a bridge between academics and practitioners in the senior care continuum. We do this by fostering applied research, supplemental activities and relationships between our educational programs and health and aging services providers and professional associations across the country.

CHAASE also support the UW-Eau Claire health care administration (HCAD) program housed in the Department of Management and Marketing. The HCAD program prepares students seeking to make a positive difference in the lives of others for leadership positions in health care. The program, which is accredited by the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB), is widely regarded across the country for its curriculum which integrates health care with business content. As part of that curriculum, students complete a yearlong, paid practicum where they apply what they learn in the classroom at an affiliated health care organization. UW-Eau Claire HCAD students are in demand—100% of our graduates report they are employed or continuing their education.

We invite you to learn more about the CHAASE and become engaged with our efforts to answer the call to lead in this noble and rewarding profession.
