UIS Diversity Center COVID-19 Resource

To keep with all responses and new policies regarding COVID-19, please visit the resources below.

  • As we know, COVID-19 has ravaged communities around the globe. In the U.S. alone, it has had far-reaching, and damaging effects. At the University of Illinois Springfield, we have generated a campus resource to inform and educate campus constituents about some of the impacts.COVID-19’s diverse nature continues to have a grave impact on populations we work, learn, and share community with, every day.
  • We share this resource in the hopes of starting a dialogue around awareness. Being educated about COVID-19’s diverse impacts is one of the defenses we can use.
    Please feel free to post this resource to your department’s page, and other social media outlets. Let’s continue to do our part in flattening the curve while at the same time, reducing stigma
