UW-Eau Claire’s annual idea exchange for faculty and staff returns on Friday, February 1 in the Davies Marketplace from 2-3 p.m. Mark your calendars and plan to attend for practical ideas on retaining students and supporting equity, diversity and inclusion. Blugold Showcase will follow “Coffee and Conversation with the Chancellor” at 1:00 p.m., so come for the conversation and stay for the ideas.

Faculty and staff from across campus (and Barron County too) will share practical tips and innovative ideas on what’s working in their department or unit. A fun speed-dating format enables everyone to learn a lot and meet new colleagues too. 

Interested in being a presenter?? Just send your name and topic to MJ Brukardt by January 1. Presenting is easy to do: prepare a four-minute presentation on your retention or EDI activity or idea. (Ideas can be big or little but they need to be useful and something others can do too.) Talk about your idea at your Showcase table. Answer questions. Bell rings and a new group joins your table and you do it again.

Blugold Showcase is a University Planning Committee project. Talk to one of the UPC members if you have questions:
