About the Office of Public Affairs

The Office of Public Affairs advises the chancellor on matters relating to all branches of government, and serves as the liaison with the University of Illinois Government Relations Office.

The office also represents the chancellor on various campus and university committees, and coordinates responses to issues that are related to various constituencies, including students, parents and friends of the university.

We also maintain a Community Blog, where the UIS campus can have a “A new kind of conversation addressing issues that UIS students and staff care about.”
