Join us in Eau Claire Sept. 29-30

We look forward to welcoming you to UW-Eau Claire for the Board of Regents meeting Sept. 29-30. Our students, faculty and staff have planned a visit that we hope will give you a taste of our campuses, our community and the future we are creating together.

Our theme for the meeting is “Innovation, Inclusion, Impact!” and you’ll see these ideas woven throughout the meetings and activities we have planned.

Our Thursday evening reception returns to the Pablo Center at the Confluence in downtown Eau Claire for tours of our newest facility and special musical performances (including a Wisconsin premiere). In between, you’ll have a chance to meet our students, cheer on the Blugold Marching Band, chat with researchers, and walk (or jog) “Wisconsin’s Most Beautiful Campus.”

There’s a lot happening in Eau Claire and we’re looking forward to welcoming you to Northwest Wisconsin!
