The Website

About the University of Illinois Springfield Website

The Office of Web Services oversees the primary UIS website, including the campus homepage and top-level pages of the site, and assists official campus units in creation and maintenance of their websites.

Our homepage allows us to showcase faculty and students in their teaching-learning environments, share important news stories and updates, and showcase our faculty and students who have embraced a leadership role in their respective areas. Find out more about our homepage.

UIS Homepage on Devices

All UIS units and departments have someone who is designated as a content creator or editor or author. To have great content, you need a great content creator. In the UIS structure, the Office of Web Services is not responsible for content. The local units are, and their content creators are critical.

Responsibility for elements of the homepage:

  • The visual narrative [large photographs]: The UIS Marketing and Campus Relations team assists with the selection of the visual narrative. The Office of Web Services maintains the a) technical and visual aspects of placing photographs and b) interactive features on the homepage.
