UW-Eau Claire values:
Stewardship and Sustainability.
Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.

As part of the recognition of University Staff via the Thank a Blugold website, the Employee Appreciation Committee draws the name of one University Staff member each month. This person receives special recognition, including a prize package donated by local businesses and organizations. To be eligible, one must be a University Staff member recognized through the Thank a Blugold website.
University Staff members will be eligible for the prize drawing for 6 months from the date of their recognition. Prize winners will not be eligible to win again for one year from the month their name was drawn.
