Email to the campus upon announcement of the new University of Illinois president

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Faculty, Staff and Students:

We welcome Dr. Michael J. Hogan as the University of Illinois’ 18th President.

I would like to personally invite you to meet Dr. Hogan, who will visit the UIS campus on Thursday, May 13, at 10:00 a.m. The event, which will be held in the Sangamon Auditorium lobby, is also an opportunity for Dr. Hogan to meet you and other special friends of UIS. There will be a short press conference followed by a brief public reception.

The Board of Trustees is announcing the Presidential selection on Wednesday morning in Chicago. For more information about Dr. Hogan, please see:

Although this is short notice, I do hope you can join us in welcoming Dr. Hogan and his wife, Virginia, to this university and community. You can also watch the UIS announcement live on the web at

It will also be on the campus home page. In our Social Player at left, click on the Red (or Green) button. The button turns from red to green when the webcast begins.

I am looking forward to seeing you on Thursday morning.
