The 2014 Faculty and Staff Campaign
Each year, the month-long Faculty and Staff Campaign celebrates and encourages the giving of faculty and staff at UIS with events and promotions. The Campaign Council has chosen a great theme for this year: Shake Rattle and Roll (Up Your Sleeves).
Kickoff, February 27–It’s a Sock Hop!
The campaign begins with the Faculty and Staff Kickoff. ALL FACULTY AND STAFF are invited! Dress up, get ready for fun, and come hungry, because we lots of food, games, and giveaways for you to enjoy.
- When: Thursday, February 27, 12 noon – 1:30 p.m.
- Where: PAC Lobby
You can show us what’s hip about your unit (and encourage some gifts) by signing up for a table. If you haven’t signed up for a table, do it today. And if you have questions or need help on what to show off on your table, email Lisa Whelpley.
Most of all, if haven’t come to the Kickoff in the past, definitely plan on it. Release time applies.
As it is every year, the Kickoff is sure to be peachy…cool…neat…swell–and even more if you come!
Questions about the Campaign?

Once the Campaign is underway, you can also ask one of the Campaign’s 45 Ambassadors. Throughout March, Ambassadors support the Campaign throughout the University, answering questions and offering information and inspiration. Look for your area’s Ambassador and see what information they have waiting for you.

Joining the Campaign This Year
Many of your colleagues have already joined the Campaign by making a gift to UIS. When you give, your gift will also count toward 2013-14 Faculty and Staff totals.
You can choose to support any area of campus—any college, department, or specific fund, and you can make the gift online, by check, or by payroll deduction.
Many of you give to the UIS Staff Scholarship in Memory of Mike Love. You could also make a gift to the UIS Scholarship Fund. The many gifts to this fund add up to multiple scholarships for students at UIS.
