Promotion + Advising Resources

Faculty and staff at UW-Eau Claire play an integral role in encouraging students to study abroad and in helping them prepare for the experience. Below are resources you can use when advising students on studying abroad, or if you would like to help promote study abroad in your classrooms. We are also happy to promote your classes or events you're hosting, that may have an international focus, on our social media accounts. Please send an image and a brief description to

International Classroom Speakers

Each semester a number of faculty open their classrooms to International Classroom Speakers. All IC speakers attend a 2-hour training, where they prepare a 10-minute presentation about study abroad. IC speakers talk about UW-Eau Claire study abroad in general, while sharing specific experiences from their own study abroad program.

You may be contacted directly by an IC speaker, requesting 10 minutes of your class time. We are also happy to facilitate the process. Just send an e-mail to with the following information: class name, class location, meeting time/days. We will share this information with potential speakers, and one of them will contact you to set up a specific presentation date. The IC speakers are also available to talk to campus organizations or to residence hall wing meetings.

Study Abroad Fair

The Study Abroad Fair for fall 2018 will be held in October 10, 2018 from 11am-3pm. We invite all faculty and staff to walk through the fair, learn about all of the UWEC program offerings and grab some popcorn and lemonade. We also hope you will encourage your students to attend the fair! We do not hold a fair in the spring.

Advising Tools

We are currently working on creating advising resources for each advising cluster. Once they are prepared, we will post information here. If you would like a sheet for your department, please contact, and we will see if we are able to work on that. 

Integrated Learning (I1):
Students participating on a CIE program (non-faculty led) can fulfill one Integrated Learning (I1) requirement by completing short assignments PRIOR TO GOING and while abroad. This is NOT automatically granted when a student studies abroad. During a student's pre-departure planning, the CIE will give them information on how to opt-in to the I1. Students who opt-in will be added to a D2L group and be given further instructions on how to complete their assignments. All assignments need to be completed in order to receive I1 credit. If a student misses the opportunity to opt-in, they cannot be retroactively added. Questions about Integrated Learning and how the process works can be sent to Cheryl Lochner-Wright (
