Places that change lives
Follow the river to see the future of UW-Eau Claire
The Chippewa River winds through downtown Eau Claire where the future site of the Confluence Arts Center can be seen through the trees at the confluence of the Eau Claire River. A little further downriver, past the campus footbridge and along the bike trail, is the future home of the County Materials Event and Recreation Complex. The possibilities of these new community venues are built on the partnerships that will make them a reality.
Public and private coming together
The Confluence Project is a shared university-community arts center and a privately developed mixed-use building, that will connect the city to the campus through bike trails AND community partnerships. Find out more about the Confluence project and how you can support places at UW-Eau Claire
For the love of community
In August, alumni John and Carolyn Sonnentag, through the Sonnentag Foundation, donated 21 acres to be the future home of the County Materials Event and Recreation Complex. Their generous gift was made out of love for community and the desire to strengthen UW-Eau Claire’s future.
Already community organizations have stepped forward to collaborate on the event and recreation center. The Eau Claire YMCA board of directors voted unanimously to join UW-Eau Claire as a partner in the development of a multigenerational facility where people of all ages would feel welcome.

Campus Harvest helps students earn a degree without going hungry
The Campus Harvest food pantry is the result of a UW-Eau Claire Foundation and Feed My People Food Bank of Eau Claire collaboration to offer perishable and nonperishable food to students in need.
While food donations are helpful, monetary gifts are essential because for every $1 donated, we can buy $10 worth of food from Feed My People. If you would like to help with a food drive or make a donation to Campus Harvest, please go online to the pantry’s website, or stop by the pantry on the lower level of Schofield Hall during the operating hours of noon-2 p.m. Monday, 2-4 p.m. Tuesday and 5-7 p.m. Thursday.
