What a gift!
We were pleased to announce this week that UIS has established it first professorship in political science in the College of Public Affairs and Administration. The Wepner Distinguished Professorship in Political Science was made possible by a $1.2 million estate gift from Wilbur and Margaret Wepner, longtime supporters of the university. The gift was unrestricted, and we will use some of the money for scholarships, too. See http://www.uis.edu/newsreleases/jan07/20070116c.html.
