Mission Statement


The University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire (UWEC) prepares its students for a diverse world, provides international learning experiences, and expects its graduates to attain intellectual, personal, cultural, and social competencies.  In support of this goal, the Center for International Education (CIE) plays a vital role in providing high quality international programs and international support services to the University community. It supports campus internationalization initiatives and advocates for intercultural competency and lifelong inquiry.

We fulfill our mission through a commitment to:
• Creating opportunities for UWEC students, faculty and staff to be active citizens of a global society by engaging in international and intercultural interactions.
• Offering support services to study abroad and international students/scholars in all phases of their on-campus and international experience.
• Providing and promoting affordable opportunities for all qualified UWEC students to study abroad, and for qualified international students to study on campus, as part of their academic experience.
• Providing targeted intercultural programming for the university and the local community.
