Biographical / Historical Note

The University of Eau Claire started in 1916 as the Eau Claire State Normal School. It was primarily a school for teachers offering two year degrees in Elementary Education, three year degrees in Secondary Education and also a principal’s degree. The school consisted of one building which is currently known as Schofield Hall, named after the first president of the school, Harvey A. Schofield.

In 1927, the name of the school was changed to Teachers College, and a four year Bachelors of Education degree was added to the University. After a successful accreditation process the college was able to add a Bachelor of Science in Education as well. William Davies became the second president of the Teachers College and he directed many opportunities for future growth of the University.

In 1951, the name of the school changed again to Wisconsin State College at Eau Claire, and with it several new degree programs came along including a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in the liberal arts filed. Four new buildings were added to the University including a campus laboratory school, a little theatre, an education building and a field house followed closely behind by Katherine Thomas Hall and Katherine Putnam Hall. After President Davies passed away Leonard C. Haas became our next president.

Another name change took place under President Haas’s tenure, and the school became known as the Wisconsin State University-Eau Claire in 1964. Three new schools were formed at this point including the Arts and Sciences, Education and Graduate Studies programs. Seven residence halls were also completed during his time at the school including Towers Hall. Also added were the dining halls and the recreation center, thus creating an upper campus where McPhee was also completed. On lower campus Davies Center was built and then added onto, Phillips Science Hall was built along with Schneider Hall. A School of Nursing was added along with the Fine Arts Building and an expansion to the McIntyre library.

In 1971, the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire was born. Richard Hibbard became our interim chancellor during this time period for a brief time. The new academic building Hibbard Humanities Hall was built and named after Chancellor Hibbard. Following Mr. Hibbard was M. Emily Hannah and Larry Schnack. Many more buildings were updated and expanded during this time period and the Allied Health and Clinical Services Building was also completed.

In 1998, Donald Mash became the sixth Chancellor and he oversaw the building of the new Chancellors hall. Chancellor Mash was also responsible for a large fundraising campaign at the university. Vicki Lord Larson was the next interim chancellor in 2006 Brian Levin-Stankevich became the seventh chancellor at UW-Eau Claire.
