The UIS Community

A new kind of conversation addressing issues that UIS students and staff care about.

My first open forum

I left the first "Ed's Campus Forum" less than an hour ago. I thought it was a good conversation, with good questions and comments. The topics included our search for an LGBTQ coordinator, why UIS doesn't have a student union, why we don't recycle glass (I'll have to check into that), the location of the Public Safety Building, Styrofoam cups in our cafeteria, Karen Hasara and the Board of Trustees. I'll add links to this post and additional comments in the next few days. Oh yeah, about 15 people were there -- students, staff and faculty. I should have counted, but I was listening and responding. How did it go? I'll await feedback on that. I enjoyed it and was glad that people came.

Please don't have a tv crew at future forums. It inhibits genuine interaction. Overall, it was a useful meeting,
