Get an inside look 

Get a better understanding of different cultures while in new surroundings! One of the many opportunities you’ll have at UW-Eau Claire is to travel through our cultural immersion programs. Ranging from a week to semester-long, these faculty-led experiences focus on a variety of interesting topics. No matter which one you decide on, the result is the life-changing perspective you will gain.

UWEC provided experiences that molded me into the person I am today. I was able to be immersed in the Somali culture, work in an inner-city school, and develop curriculum that connects cultures and math. These opportunities gave me insight and knowledge of the world, which I wouldn't trade for anything!
