Make a difference in the world.

No matter what your major, expect to engage with the world outside campus through student activities, internships and volunteerism.

“For a large number of our graduates, commencement also represents hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of hours of civic engagement. A core element in the mission of our university is to serve our community – and UIS students do so in dozens of ways.”

– Chancellor Koch
