2024 Kickoff Celebration

Mark your calendar for Thursday, February 29! We'll be celebrating this year's kick off celebration on Leap Day. Faculty and staff can enjoy a whirlwind of goodies, a mouthwatering free lunch and the chance to learn about different areas on campus they can support. It's all happening in the Student Union ballroom from 12pm - 1:15pm. You don't want to miss it!

2024 Crowdfunding

Why give?

Faculty and staff members often find that their passions and interests intersect with the mission and programs at UIS. In addition to the time and talent you share each day through your work, giving back offers an opportunity to come together to work to change our community for the better. We are lucky to have such generous employees at UIS: During the 2023 fiscal year, a record-breaking 53.4% of UIS employees made at least one (but often more than one) gift to UIS! Gifts of any amount, to any area of UIS, “count” as part of the campaign.

To answer questions and provide encouragement to give, each unit on campus has a Faculty and Staff Campaign ambassador.

Donations can be made online or, if you prefer, payroll deduction. You can always call the Division of Advancement at 217-206-6058 for more information as well.
