Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

I invite you to join me for a public conversation with the senior leadership team of our university today from noon-1:00 p.m. in Illini Union Rooms A, B and C.

Gies College of Business Dean Jeff Brown will moderate a panel conversation about “The Next 150,” our five-year campus strategic plan. Our panelists will be the Illinois senior leadership team: Provost Andreas Cangellaris, Vice Chancellor for Advancement Barry Benson, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Danita Brown Young, Interim Vice Chancellor for Research Susan Martinis and me.

As we've done in recent years, we'll conclude the event by taking written questions from the audience. There will be cards and pens available at the event entrance and staff will be collecting questions throughout the event. We'll make every effort to answer as many different questions as possible.

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.

If you will need disability-related accommodations in order to participate in the program please contact the Office of Special Events (333-8834) or

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


Robert J. Jones
