"Given their course loads and their dedication to effective teaching,

English faculty members are remarkably productive in their research and

creative activity.  In both quality and quantity, the faculty members'

publications are  exemplary.  Although UW-Eau Claire is classified in the

Carnegie category of Master's Colleges and Universities I, the English

faculty members' publication lists look more like those of faculty at

Doctoral/Research Universities--Intensive."
