Message from the Chancellor: UIS Update 5.28.24


Good morning UIS,

I hope you had a restful holiday weekend and that you enjoyed a well-deserved chance to relax and recharge. It’s the perfect time to step back, reflect on the achievements of the past academic year and prepare for exciting opportunities ahead. As a reminder, this is my last bimonthly newsletter; you’ll only hear from me once in July and August, respectively.

We did it! We completed another successful academic year at UIS. Thank you to everyone who helped at or attended Commencement.

To continue the celebratory atmosphere, I hope to see you in the Student Union Ballroom from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. today for our End of Academic Year Party. Thank you to Human Resources for planning the festivities.
