International education is an integral and vital component of university life, and its importance continues to expand. UW- Eau Claire encourages the professional development of faculty and staff through international opportunities which enriches on-campus curricula, and the development of study abroad programs that meet the academic needs of students. The Center for International Education facilitates faculty opportunities to teach, conduct research or lead study programs.

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is committed to providing a broad spectrum of international experiences to the UWEC and UWEC-BC community while at the same time supporting the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff traveling abroad. In order to balance these two priorities, the Travel Advisory Resource and Policy has been developed to provide a consistent set of resources and guidelines to university travelers. See the U.S. State Department Travel Advisories and Center for Disease Control warning system, which inform decisions on international travel for students and faculty/staff. Under the policy, student travel to countries under U.S. State Department Level 4-Do Not Travel and Level 3-Reconsider Travel and CDC Watch Level-3 Avoid Nonessential Travel requires a review and approval through the University Travel Risk Committee.
