Employee Programs

UIS offers multiple programs for employees to network with constituents and learn more about UIS and the many things that set us apart from other universities.

Rising Stars

The Rising Stars program is designed for new employees to orient themselves to the campus and to familiarize them with the many acronyms, places, and faces they’ll see around them during their employment.

Know Your U

The Know Your U program is designed to provide eligible staff with ways to discover and experience, during their normal workday, the initiatives, research, academic programs, history, and infrastructure at our universities.

Campus Recreation

The UIS Campus Recreation department hosts many events and outings throughout the year, not only for students, but also UIS employees.

UIS also has a state-of-the-art Recreation and Athletic Center (TRAC) which is a 72,000 gross-square-foot facility that is managed by the Department of Campus Recreation and houses the offices of UIS Intercollegiate Athletics. TRAC boasts a 23,000 square foot arena available for multiple indoor sports, three fitness areas, a Multi-Purpose Room and two racquetball/squash courts and offers fitness memberships and group classes.
