Welcome Message – Fall 2018

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

Welcome to the start of the 2018-2019 academic year at the University of Illinois Springfield! For those of you returning to UIS—welcome back. If you are new to the campus this fall, a hearty and warm welcome to you as well. My wish for you is a productive and enjoyable year.

We have lots of welcome activities going on this week and I hope you’ll attend the Chancellor’s Welcome Picnic tomorrow—Tuesday, August 28. It’s being held, for the first time ever, on the plaza at the new Student Union and all students, faculty and staff (and families) are invited.

Please join us from 4:30-7:30 p.m. for some great food, music, conversation, games, children’s activities….and a few surprises!

I hope to see you at the picnic tomorrow!

Chancellor Koch
