Why UIS?

As the number one public regional university in Illinois, UIS provides a safe, positive, and effective learning environment for our students to not only grow but excel. It is HR’s goal to help our employees reach their full potential, connect and foster meaningful work relationships, and provide opportunities to become involved in their community. UIS is an equal opportunity employer that strives to attract, select, and develop a diverse community of people that are talented, passionate, and driven.  We aim to make everyone who visits our campus feel welcomed, supported, and inspired to be the best they can be.

Don’t just take our word for it; in 2021, Springfield Business Journal recognized our dedication to excellence and we were the recipient of their Best Places to Work award. Knowing that we have made such a positive impact on our community motivates us to continue to strive for greatness in the workplace. 

There are many benefits of working for UIS, some of which include reduced or waived tuition for qualifying employees, competitive health, dental, and life insurance options, iCard perks, paid holidays, on-site Food Studio and Starbucks in our Student Union, and other employee discounts.
