About our faculty

The faculty at UW-Eau Claire combine classroom knowledge with hands-on experiences. They encourage students to pursue their own individual interests and welcome them into their labs and personal research projects. And they help students connect with internships, summer jobs, research projects and study-abroad opportunities. Basically, they prepare students for the diverse demands of graduate school or their first job.

Clearly their connection goes far beyond moving students through their classes. They enjoy the challenge of teaching and advising students, and most important, they are excited about what they do.
