From University of Illinois Springfield

UIS is one of three universities in the world-class University of Illinois System. We are proud that our talented faculty are leaders in their areas of study and teach all courses at UIS.

Students take advantage of leading-edge leadership opportunities not found at other universities. This allows them to shape their college experience and positions them ahead of peers outside UIS for career opportunities and further scholarship.

We are the U of I university where classes are small (student-professor ratio averages 15:1) and professors know their students – not just their names but their strengths and their goals. You’ll enjoy the close relationships that naturally occur with these teacher-scholars. Professors, not teaching assistants, teach our classes at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
