EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire students, faculty, staff, emeriti and alumni are invited to submit their recommendations for a name for the new university student center soon to be under construction.

Name suggestions must be submitted before 4 p.m. March 4. In addition to a name recommendation, submitters may provide a supporting rationale of up to 250 words. Suggestions can be submitted via an online form, or via letter or e-mail message to Dr. Beth Hellwig, vice chancellor for student affairs. E-mail suggestions should be sent to hellwiba@uwec.edu. Written suggestions should be mailed or delivered to the UW-Eau Claire Office of Student Affairs, 240A Schofield Hall, 105 Garfield Ave., Eau Claire, WI 54701.

A committee representing students, faculty, staff, administrators and alumni will review all submitted name suggestions and recommend three names to Chancellor Brian Levin-Stankevich. In accordance with UW-Eau Claire and UW System policies, the chancellor will then select one of the names, which will be submitted to the UW System Board of Regents for approval. Committee members include Dr. Beth Hellwig, vice chancellor for student affairs; Dr. Susan Harrison, associate professor of mathematics and chair of the University Senate; Tim Lauer, student; Dylan Jambrek, student body president; Charles Farrell, director of University Centers; and Sam Stagliano, former UW-Eau Claire Alumni Association board president.

Construction on the new $48.8 million university student center is expected to begin yet this winter or in early spring. The project will replace the 51-year-old Davies Center, which will be deconstructed. The site of the existing Davies Center will be redeveloped as green space. The approximately 170,000-square-foot building will be funded through segregated fees, which are paid by students. No tax dollars will be involved in the development of the building.
