At UW-Eau Claire, we celebrate and acknowledge diverse populations throughout the year. Events are designed to educate our campus community and honor the histories, struggles, and accomplishments of people from a range of marginalized populations. We understand that it is our differences that can make us a stronger campus. Our continuous priority is for all Blugold students, faculty, and staff to feel validated and valued.

Before I came to UW-Eau Claire, I didn’t think much about my cultural identity. Now, I cherish my culture. I’m committed to being an advocate for marginalized communities.
Blugolds helping Blugolds
There is a long and proud history at UW-Eau Claire of Blugolds helping Blugolds — students eager to make change, help others be heard, and make UW-Eau Claire an even better place for all its students.
Hear from recent Blugolds on what inspired them to be leaders — and all they are doing to improve equity, diversity, and inclusion here on campus and in our community.
