CAP Faculty

Capital Scholars Honors professors are among the best teachers and scholars at UIS, and come from among the best graduate schools around the nation and the world. Each devotes one or two courses per year to the CAP curriculum and also teaches upper-division or graduate courses in one of UIS’ majors, minors or graduate programs.

Living Learning Community in LRH

The Lincoln Residence Hall is the focal point for a learning community in which students, faculty, and community members come together for enrichment activities. Illinois leaders from the public and private sectors - representing scientific, artistic and cultural interests - join with students for social and cultural events, workshops and seminars. Students have opportunities for day and weekend trips to cultural and educational events in Chicago, St. Louis and throughout Central Illinois. A wide range of campus social events and entertainment enliven the hours students spend away from their studies.
