This campus attracts scholars with a passion for teaching. The quality of academics at UW-Eau Claire would not be possible without our distinguished faculty — experts in their respective fields who demonstrate a vested interest in student success.
Many of our faculty members seek funds to support cultural immersion and other high-impact learning experiences for their students, and many have received research grants from prestigious institutions and government agencies.
Personalized attention and expert leadership in collaborative faculty-student research has earned UW-Eau Claire the designation as the UW System Center of Excellence for Faculty and Undergraduate Student Research Collaboration. From this, students often get the chance to be published in journals, meet experts in the field and pursue their passion through internships and off-campus opportunities.

Putting research into real-world practice
Dr. Susan Moch, professor of nursing, is an innovator of collaborative practices that link academics with public health nursing.

Nationally esteemed in science
Dr. Kurt Wiegel, associate professor of chemistry, is one of just seven people nationwide to receive the prestigious 2012 Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award, which recognizes young chemical sciences faculty as outstanding teachers and for their scholarly research with undergraduates.
