About Our LE Core

At UW-Eau Claire, we have developed a strategic vision to be the premier undergraduate learning community in the Upper Midwest, noted for rigorous, integrated, globally infused, undergraduate liberal education, and distinctive, select graduate programs (Centennial Plan).

Critical to realizing this vision is the unfolding of a new Liberal Education Core that provides all students an educational foundation with academic breadth and depth of knowledge, and that helps students to develop skill sets that are highly marketable and lead to life-long learning and civic engagement. Our Liberal Education Reform process is well underway and will go into effect for the 2016-2017 Catalog.

We are transforming our Liberal Education Program to one based on assuring that all students, by the time they graduate, have attained high levels of proficiency in meeting our liberal education learning goals and outcomes.
