U I C Office of the Chancellor
Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,
I write to introduce the search committee for the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost at the University of Illinois at Chicago. The committee will be instrumental in developing a broad, diverse and dynamic pool of candidates. UIC’s commitment to diversity will be our driving force during this process.
The successful candidate will be an experienced, resourceful administrator who will advise the Chancellor on matters of academic policy, strategic direction, enrollment management and resource planning. This individual will have the responsibility to advance UIC’s scholarly excellence; its mission of access to excellence for one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation; collaborative and interdisciplinary endeavors; creative activity; and engagement with the community, the city of Chicago, and the state of Illinois. Together with the Chancellor, the Provost will lead UIC in attaining even greater national and international prominence for its programs, innovations, and discoveries.
I extend my gratitude on behalf of the campus to everyone who has agreed to serve on this important committee.

Dear Faculty and Staff,
Last week, on the day I joined the UIC community, I sent a message expressing my pleasure at being named Chancellor and asking for your help in teaching me about this wonderful institution and the people we serve. I am grateful that so many of you have already made time to visit with me and help me learn more about UIC's history and traditions.
On one of my visits, I received a copy of the spring issue of UIC Alumni magazine, which contains an interesting article on “50 great moments” in the history of the Chicago Circle campus. As we continue to celebrate "Circle Back...UIC Forward," the University of Illinois Alumni Association will provide each of you with a copy of the magazine. I hope you enjoy reading the article.

I am writing to encourage you to spend a few hours serving as a faculty judge to help make the 2015 Student Research Forum event a success. The Student Research Forum is one of the few student activities that is academic in nature and includes the entire student body: undergraduate, graduate and professional. The Forum provides a venue for students at UIC to present their scholarly efforts and includes a judging process with modest cash prizes. This is an event in which the campus celebrates the wealth of research across all disciplines carried out by the dedicated students of this campus. Many faculty are involved in these projects which often showcase their own research as well.
The Student Research Forum will be held:
Thursday, April 2, 2015
725 West Roosevelt Road
(Judges check-in, informal lunch and instructions: 12:00–12:30 p.m.)
Students from all disciplines (Arts, Business, Computer Science, Engineering, Humanities, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, among others) are invited to present their one-on-one work to Forum attendees and judges during a high-energy three-hour session, followed by an awards ceremony. Monetary awards will be given in various categories. Research presentations are accompanied by a poster or other visual display that captures the spirit of the research or highlights key features of the project.
Projects are reviewed by faculty within the appropriate disciplines and alumni representing the public at large. Faculty judges will be required to rate the quality of each student's presentation in three categories: abstract poster/display and seven minute presentation plus three minute question-and-answer period
Significant latitude will be offered on how to assign points in each category, although a suggested point breakdown will be given on the judging form. Judging forms will be given on the conference day, during check-in (from 12pm-12:30pm). We expect that judges will evaluate a minimum of three presentations.
A form to volunteer as a judge and additional details about the event can be found at: http://research.uic.edu/srf/fjudges
Thank you for considering this request, and for your contributions to these research projects.
Eric A. Gislason
Interim Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost
