40th Anniversary Celebration Event

Connecting for Success

When: Monday, October 25, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. (Registration begins at 5:30 p.m.)
Where: Sangamon Auditorium Lobby – Public Affairs Center

Each fall the Career Development Center organizes a networking event to bring together UIS students, faculty, alumni and business partners. Keeping alumni and business partners connected to UIS offers “real world experience” and mentoring to students who are looking to secure jobs and opportunities once they’ve completed their academic career.

In addition to the Networking Event this year we’ll also be capturing the thoughts and recollections of our Business partners’ SSU/UIS past on tape in recognition of the 40th Anniversary Celebration. To reserve YOUR time to “Tell Us Your Story” please RSVP using the registration link below.
