The University of Illinois at Springfield strives for excellence in all endeavors. We value:
- Learning – an intellectually vital and flexible learning environment, quality teaching, high academic standards and scholarship, and opportunities for experiential learning;
- Students – a student-focused environment characterized by personal growth and development opportunities within and beyond the classroom;
- Community – a democratic, ethical, caring, and diverse community fostering the well- being of our students, faculty, and staff; and
- Engagement – informed engagement and service among our faculty, staff, and students, and between the UIS community and the local, state, national, and international communities.
