Our mission

The Department of Economics at UW-Eau Claire provides local/regional economic data as well as research and analysis as a service to the community. Our mission is to supply basic economic information and to produce and disseminate timely economic analysis in order to help foster economic development in the region.

In accomplishing this mission, we strive to create strong and lasting relationships between the university and the area business community as well as local/regional public officials and non-profit agencies. In addition, we pride ourselves on providing hands-on experience for our economics majors by involving students in our research and analysis activities.
Faculty and students work to track trends in the local economy and perform studies investigating a variety of other topics of special interest to the region.

We gratefully acknowledge generous funding support from the following sources:

Climate Change Research

Blugold students have been spending several year studying and tracking public opinion about climate change in the two greatest carbon emitting countries — China and the U.S. Find out more about this important study.
