Another big step up
UIS is joining a great athletics conference -- the Great Lakes Valley Conference. The announcement was made Wednesday. This is not a ho-hum thing. We are upping the ante in everything we do. We're in a three-year process of joining NCAA Division II -- what a great thing for the central Illinois region, for UIS and for our students, and not just the student-athletes. What a delight that we were unanimously voted into the new conference.
