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.

    UAC Committees Description Chair(s)
    Concerts Committee

    Be up close and personal in the music world, as a part of the committee that brings in the bands — from hot new regional bands to cutting-edge artists on tour. The committee is responsible for all larger concerts and The Cabin concerts.

    Committee members select and publicize upcoming shows. All members assist show time production — working as stage crew, loading bands in and out, handling crowd control and sales. Shows include alternative, rock, reggae, hip-hop, blues, jazz, country, funk and beyond — there's a show for everyone.

    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.
