News & Announcements
Student vote helps push the Confluence forward
The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram reported that on-campus voter turnout among students rose 210% over the previous year during the April 1 election.
Students overwhelmingly supported a county referendum to give $3.5 million to the Confluence Project and defeated a city referendum to slow down the process for arts-based projects. For more information on the April 1 election, visit the Leader-Telegram website. To learn more about the Confluence Project, visit the University's FAQ page or Community for the Confluence.
