The History Club at UIS allows current students, who are interested in historical events, places, and people to network with each other, faculty, and community members. The History Club provides opportunities for members to interact with professional historians. In the past, the members of the club have sponsored films, speakers, career fairs, trivia nights, and off-campus excursions to regional historical sites to gain knowledge into the work behind day to day operations of local museums.
