Welcome to UW-Eau Claire!

The first year of college can be overwhelming, to say the least. Consider joining Q'nnect, UW-Eau Claire's LGBTQIA+ involvement and mentorship program! You will have the opportunity to meet and get to know Queer students, faculty, and staff--all while enjoying free lunches! We recognize that mentorship comes in many guises, and Q'nnect will ensure that you are able to meet and connect with other Queer folks in a safe, inclusive atmosphere. We can't wait to meet you!

Program Mission: To bring together LGBTQIA+ people at UW-Eau Claire (with varying ages and lived experiences), in order to provide both a sense of community and an opportunity for peer mentorship throughout the academic year. 

What to Expect...

  • 4 New LGBTQIA+ Students
  • 3 Returning LGBTQIA+ Students
  • 3 LGBTQIA+ Staff/Faculty

Once a month, your LGBTQIA+ community group (comprised above) will meet in the Dulany Inn (Heritage Room) in Davies Student Center for a free lunch. You will have an opportunity to meet one another and talk about whatever it is you'd like to talk about. You will meet with the same community group each time, developing connections and potential mentors (both formal and informal) throughout the academic year.
