You might research how plants help forecast climate change, determine the financial impact of Super Bowl ads, or study compassion fatigue among caregivers. You may even have the opportunity to present your findings at professional conferences and meet experts. Some are even published in research journals.
Our faculty care about your success. They mentor you, provide real-world experiences and connect you to experts in the field. Such projects will help you discover or confirm the kinds of activities you want to pursue in your career. If you like hands-on learning and immersing yourself in a subject, whether it's English or ecology, this is the place for you.
Research is so important at UW-Eau Claire that we have a whole week to celebrate it! The Celebration of Excellence in Research and Creative Activity (CERCA) allows students to present their findings to the campus.
