UW-Eau Claire prides itself on being a partner in the community. We recognize the value of being a good neighbor to surrounding residential neighborhoods, business districts, the greater Eau Claire community and the surrounding region. The university wishes to foster positive, long-lasting relationships among faculty, staff, students, neighbors and members of the greater community.
We encourage our faculty, staff and students to appreciate all that this community offers, from gorgeous neighborhoods to beautiful bike trails to quality shopping and impressive cultural offerings.
And we invite our neighbors to enjoy all that the campus offers: athletics, theater, music, world-class lecturers and performers and a host of other opportunities.
We also work closely with local and state officials, ensuring that the university is in a position to quickly respond to local, regional and state needs.
Mike Rindo, executive director of University Communications, is the university’s liaison to neighborhood associations and other community groups, as well as the university’s legislative liaison.
