Eau Claire Confluence Project Not Part of UW Capital Budget, But Could Still Receive State Funding

"Non state agency grant" an option mentioned by Governor Walker in June

The Universty of Wisconsin Board of Regents is set to reaffirm its support for Eau Claire's proposed Confluence Project this week, but will not include the project as part of the next UW capital budget.

Instead, the state will explore helping to fund the project through a non-state agency grant, an option mentioned by Governor Scott Walker when he voiced his support for the project back in June. The governor said at that time that the 25 million dollars in state funding project supporters are asking for might not be an option in the UW budget at this time, given other building needs that have been delayed. One of those delayed projects is a new residence hall planned for UW Eau Claire. A resolution on the Board of Regents' agenda for Thursday would reaffirm the board's support for the shared university and community arts facility, and direct the UW President to work with the Department of Administration to implement the project. UWEC Assistant Chancellor Mike Rindo says details need to be worked out under the new plan, and UW Eau Claire would still use part of the building, but no part of the building would actually be owned by the state.

Rindo says the takeaway of the announcement is that the Board of Regents still supports the Confluence Project, if they approve the resolution, and there is a way forward to seek state funding.


"It's not the whether, it's the how," Rindo said today. 

The grant would have to be included in the governor's 2015-2017 budget and approved by the state legislature. Rindo says the change in approach also means that 5 guiding principles for the project set forth by the Board of Regents in 2012 are no longer in effect, though new requirements could be established.

    replica gucci bags-What does this say about Fall 2014 fashion? Obviously, the numbers are disheartening. The fact that there were so few models of color used for any campaigns shows that although there are some designers who are happy to pay lip service to the industry's diversity issue, there are few who actually step up and feature nonwhite models in campaigns. Runway diversity improved a longchamp outlet paris paltry 1 percent from the Spring 2014 season (at least in New York), since Hardison & co. sent out those letters, and it appears that the Fall 2014 campaigns aren't doing too hot, either. Roughly 79 percent of the models used on the runways were white. For the latest campaigns, it hovers around 89 percent.

    longchamp outlet-Whether the exclusion is conscious or unconscious, the fact of the matter is that there simply needs to be more representation. Lots of times, casting directors attribute the lack of diversity to the fact that agencies don't have as many models of color available, but if Andreea can be cast in six campaigns, why not Joan, Liu, Binx or Issa? There is little excuse, really. We can only hope gucci outlet uk that looking at these cold, hard numbers will inspire designers and casting directors to be a little more conscious of who they're choosing for campaigns in the future. There simply needs to be more diversity - period. Fashion is a global industry and there are beautiful, tall, skinny (body diversity is another issue, but we won't go there) women of all races and nationalities all around the world. Model scouts: You can find them. Casting directors: You can book them. Designers: You need to demand them.
