Gayla Stoner brings 14 years of experience in continuing studies, most recently as Director of Southern Illinois University Extended Campus. As the Executive Director, Ms. Stoner will provide administrative leadership and oversight to the development and expansion of the School of Continuing Studies (SCS) programs at UIC, including the Tutorium in Intensive English (TIE). <br /><br />In her role at SIU Extended Campus, Ms. Stoner has been responsible for central administrative oversight for online and off-campus programs, as well as all the special sessions, like summer and winter sessions. Under her leadership, extended education has grown from four degree and accredited certificate programs in 2011 to 23 programs in 2014. This growth has been in online programming as well as hybrid and onsite offerings at 41 extension sites across the nation. <br /><br />She has led a strategic path for broadening academic programs to working professionals, adult learners, and high school students who may be place bound or who are seeking other than that offered in the traditional educational setting and structure. Her efforts have affected undergraduate programs, master's programs, certificate programs, certification and specialization programs as well as non-degree diploma programs. Ms. Stoner also brings with her experience in accreditation, program review and policies disseminated by the Higher Learning Commission and the Illinois Board of Higher Education.<br /><br />Ms. Stoner has also been active and held leadership roles in state and national organizations such as University Professional and Continuing Education Association, Illinois Council on Continuing Education, the Association for Career and Technical Education, and honorary societies. She expects to receive her Ph.D. in Spring 2015 from Southern Illinois University.<br /><br />As UIC advances towards the implementation of its new strategic plan, I ask you to join me in welcoming Gayla Stoner to the UIC community and to supporting her efforts to foster the growth of innovative and transformative programs for multi-generational learners, including our alumni and neighboring communities. <br /><br />I would also like to thank the search committee* chaired by Steve Everett, Dean of the College of Art, Design and Architecture, for their efforts in coordinating a successful search.<br /><br />Finally, my deepest appreciation to Cordelia Maloney, the first Executive Director, who built a professional-level capacity in the School for supporting market-drive, online programs. She retires from the position having served UIC since 1990. <br /><br />Sincerely,<br /><br />Saul Weiner, M.D.<br />Vice Provost for Planning and Programs<br />Professor of Medicine, Pediatrics and Medical Education<br /><br />School for Continuing Studies: http://scs.uic.edu/<br /><br />Tutorium in Intensive English: http://www.uic.edu/depts/tie/<br /><br />*Search Committee: <br />www.uic.edu/depts/oaa/vppp/SCS%20(3)Search%20Committee%20Exe%20Dir%207%2028%2014.pdf <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Thu, 22 Jan 2015 14:53:40 -0600 Thu, 22 Jan 2015 14:53:40 -0600 Spring Semester Internship & Part-Time Job Fair at UIC The UIC Student Employment Office & Office of Career Services is proud to announce the annual SPRING SEMESTER INTERNSHIP & PART-TIME JOB FAIR, featuring over 50 employers in a variety of sectors!<br /><br />Thursday, Jan 29th, 10:00am - 2:00pm<br />SCE Illinois Room (3rd Floor)<br />750 S.
