UIS Alumni Relations
A Global Family
With more than 35,000 members, the global UIS Alumni family has shared experiences and pride in the University of Illinois Springfield and its predecessor, Sangamon State University. From its earliest non-traditional students, who helped create a brand-new educational model at Sangamon State, to today’s diverse group of undergraduate and graduate students, we share a common pride in our unique institution.
Part of the Office of Advancement at UIS, Alumni Relations advances the interests of the University and its alumni. Through the following programs and services, we seek to strengthen the ties between our alumni, the UIS community and the local and global communities touched by our graduates:
