Information for Faculty and Staff
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

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 email@example.com 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 2017 will be held on October 4th 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 are working with various departments to create advising sheets for study abroad. If you would like a sheet for your department, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will work with you on starting the process.
