Teaching Partnerships

HECA-sponsored Partnerships

Through HECA-sponsored online teaching partnership the University of Illinois at Springfield (UIS) aims to provide leadership, training and collaborations with Chicago State University (CSU) and Northeastern Illinois University (NIU). This partnership provides another dimension to using online tools to enhance the diversity of views in our classes. Goals include:

  • Provide access to unique educational experiences with students from diverse backgrounds (urban and rural)
  • Eliminate the physical distances between the various campuses (central verses northern Illinois)
