Good afternoon, colleagues:

November is a month focused on gratitude, and as I reflect on my first few months as your chancellor, my appreciation for my new role grows and grows. UIS is a place where students come first, and to see that displayed in how you approach your work is so inspiring. I know these last few weeks of the semester will be busy, but let’s keep showing up each day dedicated to fulfilling our mission! Thank you for all you do to make UIS such a special university!

WUIS Restrooms Closed Nov. 7-17

11.13.22 Update

Facilities and Services has encountered an unforeseen issue with the flooring installation at WUIS. The condition of the subfloor requires extensive grinding to prepare it for the installation of the new flooring. This is a very time-consuming process that we anticipate will push the reopening of the restrooms to the middle of next week, November 16 or 17.

We apologize for the continued inconvenience, and every effort will be made to reopen the restrooms as quickly as possible.

Message from the Chancellor: UIS Update 10.31.22


Good morning, colleagues:

The final day of October is here — it’s been a “treat” to see all of the fall-themed activities occurring on campus this past month! The Chancellor’s Office staff enjoyed participating in the Trunk or Treat event with the Cox Children’s Center children last Friday, and several of our students were out and about in the community yesterday collecting nearly 8,000 pounds of canned goods for the annual Trick or Treat for Canned Goods philanthropy. What a great way to combine service with the season!
