Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

As we near the conclusion of this academic year, I invite you to join me for a public conversation with the senior leadership team of our university on Wednesday, April 19.

The event will begin with a brief budget update presentation by Interim Provost John Wilkin and Vice Provost Paul Ellinger. Following that, Professors Antoinette Burton and Gene Robinson will moderate a roundtable-style conversation around critical campus issues with Interim Provost Wilkin, Vice Chancellor Benson, Vice Chancellor Romano, Vice Chancellor Schiffer and me. The event will conclude with questions from the audience.

The conversation will be held April 19 from noon-1:00 p.m. in the Illini Union rooms A, B and C. This has been designated as an “approved event." With prior approval and operations permitting, non-exempt civil service employees may attend the event without loss of pay.

A sign language interpreter will be present. But if you will need disability-related accommodations in order to participate in the program please contact the Office of Special Events (333-8834) or Early requests are strongly encouraged to allow sufficient time to meet your access needs. 

I hope you’ll be able to join us for this conversation.


Robert J. Jones
