UIS Website Project

Chancellor Koch has, in consultation with faculty, staff, and students, articulated three priorities for 2013-16:

a) Growth
b) Talent acquisition and retention
c) Facilities

To support these priorities, the Office of Web Services has streamlined the online presence of the university and addresses the university’s digital reputation using a Content Management System and Official Website Themes for all official department and academic program websites.
