Greetings everyone, and welcome to the UW-Eau Claire High Impact Practices site!
As indicated by the links at the bottom of this page, each of these High-impact practices, or HIPs, promote student engagement as measured by the National Survey on Student Engagement (NSSE). As faculty, staff, student workers, and administrators, we strive to serve and support you through three specific HIPs: student-faculty collaborative research, intercultural immersion, and internships or clinical experiences. The Blugold Commitment Differential Tuition (BCDT) program promises students at least one new HIP beyond service learning, thus establishing UW-Eau Claire as an institution ready, and able to satisfy such experiences. These initiatives and others are intended to help you actively compete for educational and career opportunities in every discipline we offer, and on a global basis. Further, this institution boasts of being one of the top public schools among regional Midwest universities by U.S. News and World Report for 2017, and rightfully so. We offer a series of majors and experiences designed to prepare you for a successful and gratifying collegiate career. Please never hesitate to let us know how we can help.
