What Do We Do Best at UIS?


Dear Students, Faculty and Staff —

It’s no secret that UIS is a special place with important stories worth telling. In my short time with you all so far, I have seen first-hand many examples of what makes UIS best-in-class. I hope you feel as proud as I do to be part of this exceptional university.

As we look toward 2021 and continue to tackle the challenges presented by COVID-19, I’d like to carve out some time to focus on the positive. I want to hear from you about what we do best at UIS. Your input will be used to better inform how we talk about ourselves to others—our community, our future students and their influencers, our lawmakers, our UI trustees, our peers in the UI system, and much more.

You are invited to attend a “UIS Star Power—What Do We Do Best?” listening session via Zoom on one or both of the following dates:

  • 1-2 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 17
  • 2-3 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 12

Whether you have ideas to contribute or want to listen in for inspiration, please do consider attending. Login information is below.

United in Safety,

Karen M. Whitney, PhD
Interim Chancellor
University of Illinois Springfield
