On July 1, 2018, the University of Wisconsin – Barron County officially became a branch campus of UW-Eau Claire. The Barron County campus also officially assumed a new name, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire – Barron County, as it aligned with UW-Eau Claire as part of a UW System-wide restructuring of all the former UW Colleges.
What this means for current and future students at UW-Eau Claire – Barron County is a continuation of everything great about our campus AND the benefits of new and growing connections to the UW-Eau Claire campus faculty, services and facilities.
But some things will not change. . .
This campus will remain committed to providing a quality liberal arts general education that is accessible, affordable and prepares students from all walks of life for academic success, lifelong learning, leadership, service and responsible citizenship.
I was surprised by how quickly the administrative staff got to know me – it felt like I mattered and that my goals were important. The genuine care that faculty and staff show students is invaluable and makes the UW-Eau Claire – Barron County experience special.
