Members of the Faculty and Staff Campaign Council are members of the UIS community who understand the importance of the mission of UIS and are willing to advocate that mission by donating their time and resources to assist in promoting the campaign. They serve as ambassadors for the campaign and work with the Annual Giving staff in the Office of Development to educate fellow employees on the importance of giving.
Council members and Development staff are available to speak about giving to UIS at meetings of any size. Call 206-6058 to schedule a brief presentation for your department today.
Thank you to our 2013 Faculty and Staff Campaign Council members for your service and support this year!
I invest in UIS because I want to motivate students' interest in public health professions and help provide affordable education to the disadvantaged individuals.
I believe that the investment that I make to UIS makes a difference to the larger community. My wife and I continue to give to WUIS radio because we feel that they are able to directly reach the community with their quality broadcasting.
I invest in UIS because I feel a personal obligation to return something to the organization that has been so good to me. It is imperative for each of us to do what our conscience and financial situation allows to help the university remain as viable as possible and in these challenging fiscal times.
This is my way of paying it forward. When I was newly divorced with 2 small children, there was a program in place to assist me with college. I understand how important every contribution is. It can mean the difference between independence and dependence.
I give to UIS because of a strong belief in the benefits of education to individuals and society. I am able to witness first-hand great things happening at UIS and the impact of my donation on individuals and the university. I especially like how I can choose particular programs at UIS to support. As government pulls back in funding for education, I want to help make a difference and in particular make a difference at UIS.
I invest in UIS because I see great things coming out of all the different programs we offer our staff and students. I make donations to these areas to help out, as I too was once a student and needed that additional help. I also feel that it just makes it a better place to work by paying it forward.
I invest not only financially but time to UIS because of our students. Our main goal at UIS is to put students first therefore giving to scholarships and athletic programs makes me feel like I am making an impact on their lives. Volunteering during the Faculty/Staff campaign gives me the opportunity to encourage coworkers on how important their donation mean to our students.
I am a UIS alumna. I earned my degree later in life, as a non-traditional on campus student. Having experienced the excellence of UIS faculty, their dedication to teaching and learning, and their commitment to our students, I want UIS to remain whole and strong, providing opportunities for future generations and continuing to serve the communities of the world. As an employee, I believe the best way to show prospective donors, foundations, and corporations that we need and deserve their support is to show them we, as employees, know this to be true. This is why I invest in UIS.
I invest in US because it has invested in me by giving me the chance to teach and do research in a lively and innovative environment alongside excellent colleagues who value teaching and student involvement in learning as much as I do.
Shawn and I invest in UIS because we can see the results every day in the faces of our students. We see the positive impact UIS has on our students. We see the impact our students have on the campus, the Springfield Community and literally the world. UIS students make a difference every day and many of the opportunities they have simply would not be available without private support. Contributions from Faculty and Staff are critical to keep UIS, and our students, moving forward.
