UIS Volunteer & Civic Engagement Center
As Director, Mark Dochterman’s mission is to help, not just students, but the entire UIS family, develop a commitment to civic and social responsibilities through serving in the community. To that end, Mark works closely with Springfield area partners to identify real needs and create opportunities for UIS students, faculty and staff to serve, and to help them understand the context, social issues, current events, and policies associated with their service. Mark provides the faculty with assistance in integrating experiential learning into their classes and helps students build leadership skills and gain new perspectives by connecting to the local community.
Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
