This practice directive is established to support a safe environment for children of employees and supports UW-Eau Claire's strategic vision of achieving distinction in health and wellbeing.


UW–Eau Claire is a family-friendly workplace and supports work-life balance by providing appropriate flexibilities for employees who may want or need to bring a child or children to the workplace for brief visits, specific campus events, situational convenience or family emergencies.

Maintaining the safety and health of UW–Eau Claire employees, students, guests and visitors relies upon the control of hazardous conditions and prevention of unsafe behaviors. When visitors are children, diligence to guard against unsafe conditions and unpredictable behaviors must be heightened.
