Chimichangas with the Chancellor

I always look forward to spending time with UIS students and I don’t get to do it as much as I would like.  However, on Tuesday evening I shared some Chimichangas , UIS M & M’s and great conversation with about 80 students.  It is very clear to me that our UIS students are living and breathing “Leadership lived”.  From the thought provoking questions they asked me to the genuine concern that the upperclassmen have for the next generation of students coming up behind them, I'm so pleased that we are a close-knit campus. Our students are getting a great education at UIS; but they are also contributing to creating a campus where open dialogue is appreciated and valued.  Leadership doesn’t get any better than that in my book.
