Campus Message 12.02.15

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

I want to convey my gratitude and pride to everyone who participated in the University of Illinois system-wide Strategic Planning efforts, including the town hall, focus group, and “Office Hours” meeting. Your participation in the first step of this planning process provided important perspectives to support setting University of Illinois system-wide priorities for the next five years.

As the system Strategic Planning Initiative process moves forward in the coming months, UIC will continue to build on our own strategic plans, while concurrently contributing to the University of Illinois system. Our collective goal is to increase our positive impact in Chicago, the state of Illinois, the nation and the world.

Your voice is important to the future of UIC and to the entire University of Illinois system and I hope to see our community engaged throughout the coming year.

Sincerely,

Michael D. Amiridis
Chancellor
