Leadership is lived at UIS again today!

I was delighted to welcome a large group of Hispanic high school students and their counselors to the UIS campus today! In collaboration with the United States Hispanic Leadership Institute, we hosted a day-long leadership and pre-college program and it was a great day. We have outstanding student leadership on campus for OLAS, the Organization of Latin American Students, and I'm pictured here with the UIS OLAS President, Jaime Cruz, who also happens to work in the Chancellor's Office. My thanks to Jaime, the outstanding staff in the Diversity Center, our friends at the USHLI, and everyone who made today such a successful day. I'm looking forward to seeing some of today's visitors enrolled at UIS next Fall and pursuing their University of Illinois degrees.
