Volunteer Opportunities for UIS Employees

HR is excited to announce the return of Know Your U programing! Our first event will be a “Moon Party” on Wednesday, November 30 from 7-9pm at the UIS Campus Observatory on the roof of Brookens Library. This event will be hosted by Chancellor Gooch and led by Dr. John C. Martin, Associate Professor of Astronomy and Physics, and will be open exclusively for UIS employees and their guests. Visit the Know Your U webpage for more information and the link to register. Register soon as this event will be limited to 50 people!

Help Us Put the Human Back in Human Resources

Human Resources is staffed with real humans. Sometimes we get sick and miss work. Sometimes we celebrate life events and miss work. Sometimes we take vacations and sometimes we attend annual conferences away from the office. We understand it can be frustrating when the person you need to speak with is unavailable. You have our assurance that we will do our best to address your concern or find someone else to help in our absence. We are fully committed to serving our UIS community, but please know a little kindness and patience is always appreciated as the Human Resources staff is only human!
