Faculty, staff invited to participate in Experts Directory

UW-Eau Claire faculty and staff are invited to be listed in the university's online Experts Directory, a listing of faculty and staff experts who can comment to the news media on a variety of topics and issues and who may be available to speak to service and professional groups.

The goal is to offer a more extensive list of topics and a wider representation of UW-Eau Claire's faculty/staff expertise in the Experts Directory. Faculty and staff who sign on as experts in their fields of interest and areas of knowledge will help make the Experts Directory a more comprehensive and valuable resource for the news media and community members.

To participate, fill out the online Experts Directory form.

For more information, contact Ann Hoffman, Experts Directory coordinator, at or 715-836-2029.
