Center for International Education

Become a global citizen

UW-Eau Claire has long been a leader in cultivating study abroad opportunities, which is a credit to the Center for International Education. In addition to the multitude of places that Blugolds are able to study abroad, CIE is the office that oversees the international student experience on campus. From English as a second language to the special programs for Chinese students, the hard-working staff in CIE are helping make the world seem just a little smaller, one global experience at a time.

At UWEC we prepare Blugolds for a diverse world by providing a variety of international learning experiences. The Center for International Education (CIE) plays a vital role in providing high quality international programs and international support services to the University community. It supports campus internationalization initiates and advocates for intercultural competency and lifelong inquiry.
