News

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will soon get a new science and health
Sciences building.

Gov. Tony Evers announced a $109-million capital investment Thursday.

Evers made the announcement at Philips Hall alongside UW-Eau Claire chancellor James Schmidt and the student body president.

The project is a collaboration with Mayo Clinic Health System researchers who will work with students and staff to help recruit and train physicians. 

“This project really circulates and is centered around making sure the undergraduate research remains strong and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and it also allows us to have good community business university partnerships,” said Evers.

The new facility is aimed at providing northwestern Wisconsin with a state-of-the-art research facility that can educate the next generation of doctors and nurses.
