Teacher Shortage WCIA 3 Video-Dr. Phillips

It was 40 years ago when William Phillips, UIS Associate Professor of Educational Leadership, started his first teaching position and looking back he says the requirements became a big hurdle for many to overcome.


Dr. Scott Day, Professor and Chair of Educational Leadership was awarded the UIS Faculty Excellence Award 2017 at a recent reception on campus.

Dr. Day’s former students who were present include (from the left), Dustin Day, Superintendent of Waverly School District; Andrea Lee, Principal in Litchfield School District; and Matt Fraas, Principal of Springfield Ball-Charter School.
