Bringing scholarly work to publication

University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire faculty and staff are deeply involved in scholarship. Despite heavy demands in teaching, advising, and service within and beyond the university, they persist in scholarly engagement, often involving students along the way.

In 2006, UW-Eau Claire began an event called the Authors Celebration to highlight a few recent successes in bringing scholarly work to publication or performance. The publications shown here are from Authors Celebration events and represent only a fraction of publications by UW-Eau Claire faculty and staff. To see a more complete listing of UW-Eau Claire faculty, staff, and student publications, please see the Report on Publications.

2021 Celebration of Scholarship Event

Due to the restrictions of COVID-19 safety precautions, there was no physical 2020 Authors Celebration held. Since our ability to acknowledge the strong work of our faculty was dampened, Provost Patricia Kleine enhanced the 2021 Authors Celebration, combining authors from 2019 - 2020 and 2020 - 2021. Two other groups were honored at this new, in-person Celebration of Scholarship event as well in 2021 -- faculty who completed sabbaticals in 2019 - 2021 and our Excellence in Scholarship award winners for 2020 & 2021.  Below, you can see posters from all of our honorees.
