EAU CLAIRE — Dr. Pamela Holsinger-Fuchs has been named the director of the Educational Opportunity Center at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

Holsinger-Fuchs came to UW-Eau Claire with 25 years of experience in higher education. She most recently worked as the associate vice chancellor of Student Services and Enrollment Management at the University of Minnesota, Crookston.

Passionate about making a difference in the lives of others, Holsinger-Fuchs has worked with the Massai women in Tanzania, East Africa, and has recently become a volunteer adoption ambassador with Lutheran Social Services, placing children from the Philippines.

The Educational Opportunity Center Program is a federally funded TRiO program that provides counseling and information on college admissions to qualified adults who want to enter or continue a program of postsecondary education.

EOC is a community-based program that aims to make program services accessible by meeting with prospective participants through satellite sites within the program's 10-county target area. The goal of the EOC program is to increase the number of adult participants who enroll in postsecondary education institutions.

The EOC program at UW-Eau Claire is one of just two in the state of Wisconsin. UW-Eau Claire has been successful in receiving funding for EOC from the U.S. Department of Education since 1994. With offices at UW-Eau Claire and UW-Barron County in Rice Lake, the program serves more than 1,100 eligible adults each year.

Holsinger-Fuchs has her Ph.D. in educational leadership from the University of North Dakota and her master's from Michigan State.
