Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

As we continue to envision a bold future for Illinois, I invite you to join me for the State of the University 2018. This is a public conversation that will be held on November 8 from 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. in Illini Union Rooms A, B and C.

I plan to provide a brief overview of some highlights of the past year, offer some updates on current initiatives and address some of the challenges we still face. I will then devote most of our time outlining specific ways Illinois is taking control and ownership of our future success. I will, of course, leave time for you to ask questions.

This has been designated 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. 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. 

Our collective efforts over this past year have given us some significant momentum, and we have taken great strides in taking charge of our future. I hope you’ll join me for this conversation about our next steps forward.


Robert J. Jones
