A message from the Chancellor
The Student Union at UIS will create a more vibrant campus life for students—and for faculty and staff. With so much to offer students, the Student Union will propel enrollment growth, and by drawing all of us into a closer community, it will help to keep students at UIS until they finish their degree. This beautiful building will also welcome community members to campus and provide a bright, spacious, and comfortable location for events, varied dining options, and social gatherings.
As you explore the information, photographs, renderings, and so much more included in this website, please be aware that state funds cannot be used for this vital project, and consider how you can support this crucial and strategically planned addition to Springfield’s public university.
Join us in celebrating!
