The UIS faculty is a distinguished group of teacher-scholars. The UIS academic staff is dedicated, loyal and exceptionally capable. We work together in pursuit of our vision and fulfilling our mission.

This handbook is intended as a general guide for the faculty and academic staff. Some policies, procedures and information affect all three campuses of the U of I, while others are specific to UIS. I believe you will find this handbook useful in understanding the ways in which our campus is governed by University-wide policies and the ways in which UIS has adopted specific practices to meet our unique circumstances. This handbook is updated on an ongoing basis.

Chancellor Susan G. Koch
