Facilities Building and Renovation: Urbana-Champaign

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign faces critical challenges in providing the facilities and environment that optimally support the development of knowledge, creative endeavors, educational experiences and engagement with the public. Funds are needed for maintenance of existing buildings, to restore and reprogram existing campus space and also for new facilities in key areas of need.

Faculty Research Support: Springfield

At UIS, faculty help to provide a challenging and yet engaging academic experience for students, enriched by the professors’ personal encouragement of students. Teaching is their priority, but professors at UIS also pursue scholarly research because this enriches their teaching. Your gifts on their behalf will help fund specific research programs, as well as promote program/course development and provide additional faculty fellowships.

Field Stations at Emiquon and Lake Springfield: Springfield

UIS has two field stations. The Therkildsen Field Station at Emiquon supports the Emiquon Wetlands Restoration Project, the largest of its kind in the U.S. In partnership with The Nature Conservancy, UIS provides and oversees education and research opportunities, as well as community outreach, K-12 and public awareness activities. The new UIS Field Station at Lake Springfield includes a 3,000-square-foot building, more than 400 feet of lakeshore and a dock system – all just a few minutes from campus. It will serve as a multipurpose educational, research and recreational facility. Your gifts will enhance these facilities.
