The Flesch Family Welcome Center will house UW-Eau Claire’s Admissions Office as well as the UW-Eau Claire Alumni Association and UW-Eau Claire Foundation operations. It will be located on Roosevelt Ave.
The University Welcome Center will be the centerpiece of our efforts to substantially expand our student recruitment and alumni engagement activities.
The Flesch Family Welcome Center, slated to open Summer 2021, will be the main entry point for more than 17,000 prospective students, parents and guests who typically visit campus during the year. It also will be a home on campus welcoming the more than 95,000 UW-Eau Claire alumni who live around the world.
This facility, privately funded by donations from our generous alumni and university supporters, is built on university land along Roosevelt Avenue. The planning and construction management for the project is being administered by the UW System. The UW System selected architectural/engineering firm Ayres Associates for the project through a competitive process. Ayres Associates is headquartered in Eau Claire.
The center name honors Tom and Jeannie Flesch, UW-Eau Claire alumni who made a lead gift to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation in support of the project. Tom Flesch is a 1974 UW-Eau Claire business administration and economics graduate, and Jeannie Flesch graduated in 1973 with a degree in business education.
