It's impossible to separate art from culture, or either of those from the communities in which they thrive. UW-Eau Claire English faculty and students have been connecting with the Chippewa Valley for decades. Through events like poetry or fiction readings and presentations, student interns contributing to area business, collaborative research based in area non-profit organizations, dynamic student events on campus, faculty and students leading workshops and festivals in the Chippewa Valley — Blugold English is out in the community in too many touch points to count.
Take a look at the following stories and links, spotlighting just a few of our mutually beneficial and highly rewarding campus-community partnerships.
