Students snare leadership opportunities

One of the things I really enjoy about UIS is that students often step up and do something really special. They lead! Such was the case Friday when Vicente Valtierra saw his vision of a Hispanic student leadership program unfold Friday, bringing high energy and inspiration to campus. He was also a part of a student gathering with Springfield Mayor Mike Houston and other city officials recently. Way to go, Vincente!

Leadership lived

I've been pleased by the very favorable response to the Leadership lived tagline that Chancellor Koch introduced at Convocation this year. I am especially inspired when I listen to our students talk about a UIS experience that literally changed their lives. See these stories yourself on this web site.
