"Oh the Places We'll Go"
The annual Faculty & Staff Campaign celebration, which lasted throughout March, would have made Dr. Suess proud. We rhymed our way through the month using the book "Oh the Places We'll Go" as our inspiration. And the result was gratifying: a total of 37% of our employees made a gift to UIS, an increase over last year's 35.6%. In numbers, 270 individuals have given (46.6% of academic professionals, 37% of faculty, and 28.8% of civil service employees). I want to thank each of you for your vote of confidence in this university. And kudos to Vicki Megginson and her staff for putting on quite a show. If you haven't already done so, you can still give; all gifts received before the end of the fiscal year (June 30) are counted toward this year's goal and campaign.
