Growing up in a Twin Cities suburb, Connor Zielinski was aware that there was a large Somali community in Minneapolis, yet he knew little about the people who live there. As immigration and other issues touching on diverse populations, including his Somali neighbors, became part of the rhetoric in state and national elections last fall, Zielinski — a UW-Eau Claire freshman with an interest in politics — realized he didn’t understand enough about the issues or diverse cultures to join the conversation in a meaningful way. So he decided to do something about it. He found the perfect place to start by joining UW-Eau Claire’s Somali Immersion program, an initiative that immerses Blugolds in the Twin Cities’ Somali community, where they spend a week volunteering in predominately Somali schools, talking with community leaders and activists, visiting Somali businesses and sampling local foods.

While the late Mary Tyler Moore’s fictional Mary Richards was celebrated in recent weeks for showing the world that women belong in the newsroom, another — this time, real-life — female journalist in Nebraska is taking things one step further.

While Jenna Jandrt won’t begin her master’s program until the fall, already she is immersed in the research that she expects will shape her graduate studies and make the future career she envisions possible. For the last two years, Jandrt, a Cadott native who will graduate from UW-Eau Claire in May with a degree in psychology, has been researching the ways that Montessori schools intentionally foster socio-emotional development, the way our personalities, emotions and relationships with other people develop and change over our lifetimes. UW-Eau Claire’s success in supporting highly effective undergraduate research programs that benefit students like Jandrt has earned the university top honors from the Council on Undergraduate Research. CUR named UW-Eau Claire the top master’s-level university in the country in providing excellent undergraduate research programs.
