UW-Barron County + UW-Eau Claire

Launching a bright future together

On July 1, 2018, the University of Wisconsin-Barron County officially became a branch campus of UW-Eau Claire. The Barron County campus also officially assumed a new name, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire – Barron County, as it aligned with UW-Eau Claire as part of a UW System-wide restructuring of all the former UW Colleges.

The restructuring initiative was first proposed by UW System President Ray Cross in October 2017 and approved by the Board of Regents in November. The restructuring was formally approved on June 29, 2018, by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, the accrediting organization for all UW System schools.

Information about the ongoing transition for UW-Eau Claire – Barron County and UW-Eau Claire will continue to be posted below as it becomes available. Also see the UW System website for details about the systemwide restructuring.
