Celebrating our Diversity

Building a stronger campus

At UW-Eau Claire we make a point to celebrate and acknowledge diverse populations throughout the year. With events designed to educate campus and honor the histories, struggles, accomplishments and of people from a range of marginalized populations. We understand that it is our differences that can make us a stronger campus, and continual efforts to make sure all Blugold students, faculty and staff feel validated and valued is a priority here.

Below is a listing of some of the annual diversity celebration and recognition, as well as stories and video related to these events.

  • LatinX Heritage Month
  • Indigenous People's Day
  • Honoring Education Powwow
  • Eau Queer Film Festival
  • National Coming Out Day
