This fund provides money for special opportunities or extraordinary needs
These activities and others like them enrich our students immeasurably, enhancing the education they receive at UIS—but we could not do any of them without the discretionary money given to this fund.
This fund helps to meet the operating expenses of UIS’ Emiquon Field Research Station (link), where students, faculty, and community members—including researchers from other institutions of higher education and students from area schools—can take part in research and educational activities related to the floodplain restoration occurring at Emiquon.
The net income from the Fund is used to purchase "big ticket" laboratory equipment in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at UIS. The equipment purchases shall be restricted to laboratory equipment for the physical or biological sciences programs that would be used, though not exclusively, in the undergraduate laboratory courses. The expenditures are not necessarily made each year, but rather the net income is allowed to reinvest in the principal of the Fund until the principal reaches at least $30,000 in 2003 dollars adjusted for inflation. This fund is not yet fully funded (it has not reached $30,000). Your investment could make the difference.

We look forward to hearing from you!
