Aundrae Williams ‘21

Hometown: Springfield, Illinois
Major: Communication
Future Plans: Continue basketball career

As a star basketball player at Springfield’s Lanphier High School, Aundrae Williams knew he wanted to continue his career in his hometown following graduation. Williams has become an important part of the UIS Prairie Stars leadership on the court as a point guard directing the team’s offense. The communication major recently had the opportunity to represent UIS at a national three day NCAA Inclusion Forum in Indianapolis. He got a chance to meet other student-athletes from around the country and learn important lessons about leadership. Following graduation from UIS, Williams hopes to continue his basketball career. He’s proud of the UIS Athletics program, which he says is growing. “As far as athletics, we’re on the rise,” he said. “People are starting to realize that UIS is a team that needs to be recognized.”

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
