University Activities Commission

UAC, a Student Senate Commission

The University Activities Commission (UAC) of the Student Senate is the campus-wide events programming board at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Student programmers select, promote and produce a wide variety of cultural, educational and entertainment programs for the university community.

An all-volunteer, award-winning commission of the Student Senate, the University Activities Commission receives part of the segregated student fee budget to support its activities, which means that UW-Eau Claire students may attend UAC programs at no charge or at significantly reduced cost.

Are you interested in joining UAC?

Membership in the University Activities Commission is open to all UW-Eau Claire students. Meet new people, make new friends, and gain valuable experience in the UAC. Committee meeting times and committee descriptions are posted on the individual committee Web pages listed in the sidebar.

See the different committees below for more information about areas you may be interested in.

To get involved, stop in the Student Orgs Complex (Davies 220), come to a meeting, or e-mail UAC!

The Cabin of Davies Center hosts free performances nearly every weekend, from open stage opportunities for campus and area talent to performances selected from talented UW-Eau Claire students, faculty/staff and community and nationally touring artists. All performances are completely produced and managed by student members of the UAC Cabin Committee.

The Cabin Committee always welcomes new members. Contact one of the Cabin Committee Chairpersons or call 715-836-4805 or 715-836-4833 for more information.
