Circles of Change

Moving from Dialogue to Action in the Chippewa Valley

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and local community partners are working to build and embrace a more racially and ethnically diverse and inclusive environment in the Chippewa Valley.

Your voice, perspective, personal experience and ideas for improving our community are important. Students, civic leaders, business owners, parents, administrators, medical care providers, social workers and people from all walks of life and backgrounds are invited to participate in the Circles of Change dialogue groups.

Each group of 10-12 participants will meet for six 2-hour sessions. 

In a recent Volume One article, Patti See shares her powerful experience as a part of a pilot Circles of Change discussion group.

“Circles of Change has really become something that I look forward to every week.  The importance of this group really can’t be expressed in just words, so it’s a good thing we have will have action as well.  I see the passion of change in each individual in this pilot group, a passion that has the potential to truly enact positive and effect change.  I  believe in this group and the people that partake in it.  I am very excited to see where this goes in the future.” 

Justin Wheatley, college student

“Circles of Change allowed me to make connections and build relationships with other like-minded people from across the Chippewa Valley.  It has been invaluable because I know I will be able to contact and work with fellow participants to affect positive change for years to come.”  

Becky Linderholm, elementary school teacher
