I am grateful for Paula’s dedicated service and her contributions to UIC’s continued rise as one of the nation’s premier urban universities.<br /><br />President-elect Timothy Killeen and I chose the new chancellor from an outstanding field of finalists recommended by a campus-based search committee that spent the last eight months identifying and screening candidates. Our deepest thanks to the committee and Chair Mrinalini (Meena) Rao for their commitment to UIC and its future.<br /><br />The new chancellor will be introduced at noon Thursday in the Illinois Room at Student Center East, and the announcement also will be webcast live at http://go.uillinois.edu/UICchancellor. Another opportunity to greet the new chancellor will follow at 2 p.m. Thursday at the College of Nursing.<br /><br />I hope to see you there. <br /><br />Sincerely,<br /><br />Robert A.

I'll be sure to note that in my log. Sure. You'd be surprised how far a hug goes with Geordi, or Worf. Captain, why are we out here chasing comets? Some days you get the bear, and some days the bear gets you. Maybe if we felt any human loss as keenly as we feel one of those close to us, human history would be far less bloody.<br /><br />We have a saboteur aboard. Then maybe you should consider this: if anything happens to them, Starfleet is going to want a full investigation. You're going to be an interesting companion, Mr. Data. Your shields were failing, sir. You did exactly what you had to do. You considered all your options, you tried every alternative and then you made the hard choice.

Two California institutions are ahead of UIC on the list: University of California, Irvine, at No. 7 and University of California, Santa Cruz, No. 11. The only other U.S. institution included in the top 50 is University of Texas at Dallas, No. 15. <br /><br />“This is an incredible achievement that we owe to our faculty, alumni, staff and students. This recognition is evidence of our continued focus on excellence, as well as a testament to the impact we make in Chicago and around the world with the knowledge that we create and translate to solving real-life problems,” said Chancellor Paula Allen-Meares. <br /><br />Times Higher Education, published in the United Kingdom, said the 100 Under 50 list “provides a glimpse into the future, showcasing not those institutions with centuries of history, but the rising stars which show great potential.” <br /><br />According to the publication, which also produces the annual World University Rankings, the institutions in the 100 Under 50 rankings are evaluated more for objective performance indicators such as research, citations, teaching, international outlook and innovation, and less for subjective indicators of academic prestige. <br /><br />“The leaders of the new generation of institutions featured here are remarkably bullish: happy to compete on equal terms with the old guard and confident of their ability to thrive in a dynamic and diverse higher education sector,” writes Times Higher Education rankings editor Phil Baty. <br /><br />“Some even see their relative youth not as a hindrance but as a clear strategic advantage in an uncertain global academy that demands bravery, risk-taking and fresh thinking.” <br /><br />The other U.S. institutions on the 100 Under 50 list are George Mason (57), University of Maryland, Baltimore County (65), Florida International University (73) and University of Texas at San Antonio (91). massmail http://www.uic.edu/test MassmailFeed Tue, 06 May 2014 13:01:32 -0500 Tue, 06 May 2014 13:01:32 -0500 Aviation Commissioner on campus <br />The College of Engineering Distinguished Lecture Series Presents<br /><br />Rosemarie Andolino, Aviation Commissioner.<br /><br />Take this opportunity to hear Ms. Rosemarie Andolino, Chicago’s Commissioner of Aviation, speak on the topic “Chicago Department of Aviation: Connecting Chicago to the World.”<br /><br />April 17 3:30-4:30<br />Cardinal Room, Student Center East<br />Registration required at madelyn@uic.edu<br /><br />Refreshments will be served following Ms. Andolino’s presentation.<br /><br />If you require any accommodations to attend this event, please contact Madelyn Thompson, 312.413.1387, madelyn@uic.edu<br /><br />View online: http://go.uic.edu/AviationCommissioner massmail http://www.uic.edu/test MassmailFeed Fri, 11 Apr 2014 11:18:11 -0500 Fri, 11 Apr 2014 11:18:11 -0500 Aviation Commissioner on campus The College of Engineering Distinguished Lecture Series Presents<br /><br />Rosemarie Andolino, Aviation Commissioner.<br /><br />Take this opportunity to hear Ms. Rosemarie Andolino, Chicago’s Commissioner of Aviation, speak on the topic “Chicago Department of Aviation: Connecting Chicago to the World.”<br /><br />April 17 3:30-4:30<br />Cardinal Room, Student Center East<br />Registration required at madelyn@uic.edu<br /><br />Refreshments will be served following Ms. Andolino’s presentation.<br /><br />If you require any accommodations to attend this event, please contact Madelyn Thompson, 312.413.1387, madelyn@uic.edu<br /><br />View online: http://go.uic.edu/AviationCommissioner massmail http://www.uic.edu/test MassmailFeed Fri, 11 Apr 2014 11:10:09 -0500 Fri, 11 Apr 2014 11:10:09 -0500 [TEST] Congressman Luis Gutierrez at UIC (April 7, RSVP requested) Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,<br /><br />Please join us on Monday, April 7th to welcome Congressman Luis Gutierrez to UIC.

Currently, the UIC United Faculty (UICUF), a union composed of tenure and non-tenured faculty, have filed a ten-day notice of their intent to strike, which is required by law. Nevertheless, they reserve the right to postpone or cancel this action at any time. Members of the UICUF, as well as non-members, may take part in the strike.<br /><br />While faculty are expected to announce cancellations prior to the start of any class, we advise all students to contact their professors (via email or in class) as soon as possible. Moreover, unless a professor announces their participation in the strike, students should assume that their class will be in session.<br /><br />* Please be aware that teaching assistants (TAs) are not expected to participate in the strike, therefore classes taught by TAs should still be in session.<br />* Graduation/ grades will not be affected by the strike.<br />* In the event of a strike, university operations will continue to function to the fullest extent possible.<br />* Students have discretion to decide whether or not to join faculty in the strike, but will be held responsible for any materials covered in classes.<br /><br />For more information and the latest updates, please visit the following UIC website: [http://facultycollectivebargaining.uic.edu/?utm_source=usggsc&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=links]. All further questions regarding the strike and its implications must be directed to digitalcomm@uic.edu<br /><br />Thank you,<br /><br />UIC Undergraduate Student Government (www.uic-usg.org)<br />UIC Graduate Student Council (www2.uic.edu/stud_orgs/gsc)<br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/test MassmailFeed Mon, 17 Feb 2014 17:34:40 -0600 Mon, 17 Feb 2014 17:34:40 -0600 [TEST] Study abroad massmail plaintext massmail http://www.uic.edu/test MassmailFeed Tue, 04 Feb 2014 17:23:35 -0600 Tue, 04 Feb 2014 17:23:35 -0600 [TEST] Study abroad massmail plaintext massmail http://www.uic.edu/test MassmailFeed Tue, 04 Feb 2014 17:10:57 -0600 Tue, 04 Feb 2014 17:10:57 -0600
