Introducing Solar Chicago, a new group solar discount program for homeowners in the Chicago metro area available this summer. Solar Chicago is a partnership between the City of Chicago, the Environmental Law and Policy Center (ELPC), Vote Solar, and the World Wildlife Fund. This solar discount program will help homeowners pool their buying power to make going solar more affordable than ever while helping to achieve community clean energy goals. UIC is one of the participating employers.<br /><br />Good news. After vetting several solar companies, a volunteer community evaluation committee has selected the team of Juhl Renewable Energy Systems and Microgrid Solar as Solar Chicago's installation partner. Serving individual customers in a group through Solar Chicago allows these companies to reduce their costs - savings that they will pass along to participants with residential solar pricing starting at $3.49 per-watt - more than a 25% discount off the average cost of going solar. <br /><br />The Juhl Renewable Energy System / Microgrid Solar team also includes the experience of local electrical contractor / installation partners Ailey Solar and Kapital Electric. Collectively, these solar installation contractors have completed over 300 residential solar projects in the last 12 months totaling more than 1.2 megawatts! In addition to the significant qualifications they bring to the Solar Chicago program, the Juhl Renewable Energy Systems / Microgrid Solar team will also offer financing solutions to homeowners through Admirals Bank.<br /><br />Next Steps. If you have not signed up for Solar Chicago, please follow the next steps here: http://sustainability.uic.edu/solar-chicago-at-a-discount/ . Please note that registration does not obligate you moving forward.<br /><br />Learn More. Join the program sponsors and the Juhl / Microgrid team to learn about the basics of residential solar and have your questions answered at an upcoming workshop this summer. Event details can be found on the News page http://www.mygroupenergy.com/group/solarchicago/news/ of the program website. If you are unable to attend, a pre-recorded webinar will also be posted for your review.<br /><br />Spread the Word. Solar Chicago pools the purchasing power of groups to make solar more affordable. More participants means a better deal for you and more clean, reliable solar power for your community. In addition to the standard discounted program pricing, if the group collectively installs a minimum of 100 kilowatts of new solar capacity, the Juhl / Microgrid Solar team will provide each homeowner with an additional cash incentive. If the group collectively installs more than 400 kilowatts of solar, the incentive rebate will double! <br /><br />Please help us spread the word about Solar Chicago http://www.mygroupenergy.com/group/solarchicago to your co-workers, friends, family and neighbors. <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Tue, 29 Jul 2014 16:16:03 -0500 Tue, 29 Jul 2014 16:16:03 -0500 Retirement of UIC School of Continuing Studies Executive Director Cordelia Maloney Dear Colleagues:<br /><br />It is with regret that I announce the retirement of Cordelia Maloney, Executive Director of the UIC School of Continuing Studies. <br /><br />Cordelia, who joined UIC in 1990, served as Director of Summer Session and Director of the Office of Continuing Education prior to becoming the first Executive Director of the newly formed School of Continuing Studies in 2009. <br /><br />During her time as its head, Cordelia has moved the SCS forward in many ways. She accomplished a successful internal reorganization involving the Offices of Summer Session, Continuing Education, External Education and the Tutorium in Intensive English; and built a professional-level capacity in the School for supporting market-driven, online programs. <br /><br />In the past year, Cordelia provided leadership for the School’s first formal strategic planning exercise. The resulting plan builds on the current strengths of the School and identifies new and exciting directions, including a focus on innovative, interdisciplinary, intergenerational programming that will connect UIC in meaningful ways to its alumni, neighboring communities and other important constituencies.<br /><br />The search to identify the next Executive Director of the School will begin shortly. I am pleased that Steve Everett, Dean of the College of Architecture, Design and the Arts, has agreed to serve as the search chair. The search committee will work to identify a dynamic leader who will build on the solid foundation that has been established in the School’s first five years, and who will foster the growth of innovative and transformative programs for UIC’s many constituencies. <br /><br />The committee membership, along with the position advertisement and updates will be posted on the VPPP web site, http://www.uic.edu/depts/oaa/vppp/. <br /><br />I want to thank Cordelia for her years of service, her exceptional leadership and her strong commitment to UIC. Please join me in congratulating her on her retirement.<br /><br />Sincerely,<br /><br />Saul J. Weiner, MD<br />Vice Provost for Planning and Programs <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Tue, 29 Jul 2014 15:58:08 -0500 Tue, 29 Jul 2014 15:58:08 -0500 Nominations for 2015 Alumni Awards Program Dear Colleagues,<br /> <br />On behalf of the UI Alumni Association and the UIAA Board of Directors' Awards Committee, I invite you to nominate outstanding UIC alumni for the 2015 alumni awards program. <br /> <br />As members of a vibrant and connected campus community, you are undoubtedly aware of graduates and friends of the campus who have excelled in their careers, enriched the live of others through their humanitarian work or distinguished themselves by their service and/or loyalty to the University.

Research assistantships open a world of opportunity to our students and provide you with valuable assistance and mentorship experiences.<br /><br />I am pleased to announce one campus program that provides undergraduates with payment for their research assistantship – at no cost to you! The Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Award program supports undergraduate research and other creative scholarly experiences across all disciplines. This award will employ over 100 undergraduates who are eligible for Federal Work Study as research assistants at no cost to faculty or departments. Chancellor Paula Allen-Meares pays the campus portion (now 35%) of a student’s Federal Work Study award.<br /><br />Faculty members employing a student who is also registered for research credit (there are appropriate course numbers now in nearly every department on campus) will receive a Faculty Research Mentor Award of $300 per student per semester to support any associated expenses.<br /><br />To participate in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program, faculty members must first post a brief profile on the Undergraduate Research Experience (URE) website: www.ure.uic.edu. This web site facilitates the matching of students with faculty mentors across campus. Posting your profile there, which will take you only a few minutes, is not only the first step toward finding a student for this award program, but it is also key to facilitating all new undergraduate/faculty research relationships.<br /><br />So, please post your profile at the URE Web site right away (or, if you already have a profile posted, double-check and make sure it is updated), because in only two weeks, I will invite students to start searching the URE Web site to find faculty research advisors. <br /><br />Once you identify an undergraduate student you are interested in working with (either because the student contacted you, or you have recruited a student), find out if the student is eligible for Federal Work Study. If so, fill out the online application form on the URE Website for the CURA award (that is, faculty members, not students, complete the form). The program funds are generous, but they go fast, so please do not wait to apply for the CURA Award. <br /><br />Of course, you are also free to take undergraduate assistants at any time for credit or on a volunteer basis outside of the CURA program, as openings in your scholarly program occur. <br /><br />Details are available at www.ure.uic.edu. More questions? Email us at uresupport@uic.edu<br /><br />Best wishes, <br /><br />Bette L.
