Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Student Success Initiative kick-off event, provided feedback via the online form or attended a student focus group. Based on your feedback, the planning group has determined six categories for further exploration: teaching and learning; diversity, equity and inclusion; building community; health and wellness; affordability; academic advising and academic support.

I write today to invite you to participate in the next step of the initiative, our Fall Lunch Series:

  • Tuesday, November 5 – 314 Illini Union
  • Wednesday, November 6 – 1005 Beckman Institute
  • Thursday, November 14 – Heritage Room, ACES Library, Information, and Alumni Center
  • Monday, November 18 – 2025A Student Dining and Residential Program (SDRP)

Please RSVP here. Each session will take place from noon to 1 p.m. and topics and discussions will vary. Box lunches will be provided.

The sessions have been designated “approved events.” With prior approval and operations permitting, non-exempt (non-overtime eligible) civil service employees may attend without loss of pay. If you require accessibility accommodations in order to participate in the program, please email as soon as possible to allow sufficient time to meet your access needs.

Robert J. Jones
