The Power of Possible campaign
The Power of Possible is a fundraising effort by the UW-Eau Claire Foundation that supports the university's strategic plan and vision for the future. The campaign will culminate with UW-Eau Claire's centennial celebration in 2016.
What can you make possible today?
BMB! That's all you have to say to high school students across Minnesota and Wisconsin, where being a Blugold is the marching band benchmark of excellence.
Experience that BMB excellence firsthand: Watch the brand-new BMB documentary, “Pride AND Performance,” which follows several freshmen through their first year in the celebrated Blugold Marching Band, one of the most active university marching bands in the Upper Midwest.
We all have memories of those professors who made the difference when we were in need of encouragement or who inspired us as young undergraduates.
Take yourself back to that time as you watch a documentary that features Dr. Cheryl Brandt, professor of nursing, as she demonstrates the passion and commitment of UW-Eau Claire faculty in providing transformational learning to their students.
In 2014, Mary and Fred Bliss established a UW-Eau Claire nursing faculty grant that facilitates the development of scholarship for pre-tenured faculty building their portfolios for tenure and promotion.
“There is nothing more exciting than partnering with a woman and her family to bring a new life into the world,” said Mary, a UW-Eau Claire nursing graduate who at one time worked in obstetrics and gynecology. “But it is also fabulous to work with nurses to show how nursing has its own knowledge level and a collaborative focus on patient safety and quality.”
Watch a video about the impact Mary and Fred hope to have with their gift.
Sometimes when you want something,
you have to make it happen.
After starting their careers in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul, UW-Eau Claire alumni Chase Brakke and Lindsey Johnson wondered about starting a Blugold alumni network in the area. The success of an informal networking event led to Chase and Lindsey partnering with the UW-Eau Claire Foundation. On Feb. 20, they hosted the first official Twin Cities networking reception at Bauhaus Brew Labs. More than 150 alumni attended the event! There are more networking events in the works, and you can learn more on Facebook UW-Eau Claire GOLD (graduates of the last decade) .
Your support helps prepare tomorrow's leaders to carry our tradition of excellence out into the world. You make it possible for our students to be musicians, scientists, nurses, teachers AND to discover their passion.
Your collective gifts have the power to make high-impact learning experiences and valuable resources available to all students at UW-Eau Claire. We say Thank you!
