Blugold Commitment in Action
The Blugold Commitment is a partnership of students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends working to preserve and enhance the distinctive, high-quality UW-Eau Claire experience. In 2010 the Student Senate and the UW System Board of Regents supported increasing the amount of differential tuition UW-Eau Claire students pay, with the new dollars funding projects that enhance student learning. These projects range from faculty-mentored research, to visiting speakers who bring a global perspective to campus, to student immersion experiences around the world.
