UIC Official http://www.uic.edu/home/feeds/official.rss Official, urgent and emergency campus announcements en-us Fri, 11 Apr 2008 16:52:07 -0500 60 Message from the Chancellor Click here to see this online [http://chancellor.uic.edu/files/messages/2017_0706_budget.html]<br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br />Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:<br /><br />Earlier this year, the UIC Master Plan Advisory Committee provided recommendations -- “Envisioning Our Future: 2017-2027” -- to improve UIC facilities and grounds over the next decade. Our capital infrastructure must reflect the quality and impact of this institution if we are to achieve our educational, research and engagement goals; attract the best faculty and staff; and provide much-needed facilities for students. The first draft master plan was presented to internal and external stakeholders who provided thoughtful and constructive feedback. I expect the process to be completed this fall. In the meantime, I am pleased to let you know that two of the projects featured in the early discussions will be moving forward during the current academic year and you will begin to see construction activity on campus in the next several months.<br /><br />A new College of Engineering building – the first new academic building on the east campus since 1991 – is the result of current and planned enrollment growth in the college. This modular-designed building will have a flexible capacity to meet changing needs and will include 50,000 square feet of new lab and office space to ensure our students meet employer demand for top-notch talent. Construction for the building will take place on the northeast end of Parking Lot 5, located along Taylor Street between Morgan Street and the Science & Engineering South building.<br /><br />Artist's rendering: Morgan & Harrison [https://chancellor.uic.edu/files/2017/07/p3_morgan_harrison.jpg]<br />Artist's rendering: Harrison [https://chancellor.uic.edu/files/2017/07/p3_harrison.jpg]<br /><br />A signature living-learning community will be built near Harrison and Morgan Streets to provide residential accommodations for 500 students, more than 51,000 square feet of academic space (primarily classrooms), and 1,600 square feet of retail dining. The project will be entirely financed by a private partner (American Campus Communities). The complex of buildings will feature:<br /><br />Instructional spaces with “turn to team” design elements, learning oases, and a C-Stop.<br />Among them, the largest 258-seat classroom can also be transformed into a flexible event and performance space.<br />Residential accommodations will include a mix of traditional double rooms, semi-suites, and faculty/staff apartments along with study and social lounges.<br />This new facility will be located in Parking Lot 9 in order to be close to other residence halls and near the campus core.<br /><br />Artist's rendering: pedestrian bridge [https://chancellor.uic.edu/files/2017/07/p3_harrison.jpg]<br /><br />Understandably, these construction projects will affect parking as well as traffic patterns in and around these areas. If you currently park in Lots 5 or 9, Campus Parking Services will contact you in the next few weeks with more information.<br /><br />Both construction projects are scheduled to break ground in January 2018.<br /><br />I want to thank the Facilities staff and everyone else who provided input during the design process for both projects. Their work is critical as we focus on achieving our strategic priorities and addressing the short- and long-term needs of our campus community.<br /><br />Sincerely,<br /><br />Michael D.

Through this center, we look forward to engaging you in a culture of action and reflection related to the improvement of teaching at UIC. <br /><br />TLC’s mission is to help faculty create and participate in various learning communities where teaching is the focus. Faculty will have the opportunity to extend their engagement in curricular, instructional, and/or assessment-focused innovations to improve student learning. The opportunity to learn about and incorporate technological advancements in teaching will also be available through the TLC and its partners. Particular attention will be paid to faculty teaching undergraduate courses, and promoting student success. <br /><br />A core structure that TLC will use to facilitate faculty engagement is the building of partnerships between highly experienced and recognized faculty (“Master Teaching Scholars”) and faculty who wish to advance in one or more areas of their teaching (“Teaching Scholars”). <br /><br />Master Teaching Scholars will be compensated and affiliated with the Center for one year (with the possibility of continuation for another year). Teaching Scholars will engage with the Center for one semester. The Center anticipates selecting approximately 12 Master Teaching Scholars for the 2015-2016 academic year, and approximately 45 Teaching Scholars for Spring 2016.<br /><br />The application process for selecting Master Teaching Scholars may be found on TLC’s website by clicking on the following link: http://tlc.uic.edu/master-teaching-scholars/. The application deadline is September 21, 2015. Inquiries about this role may be directed to the Center’s Director, Professor Maria Varelas (mvarelas@uic.edu), and the Center’s Associate Director, Kate Franck (kfranc@uic.edu). <br /><br />The application for Teaching Scholars will be available by mid-November 2015. <br /><br />Sincerely,<br /><br />Eric A. Gislason, Interim Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost<br />Renée Taylor, Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs and Professor, Occupational Therapy<br />Maria Varelas, Director of the Center for the Advancement of Teaching-Learning<br />Communities and Professor, Curriculum and Instruction official http://www.uic.edu/test OfficialFeed Tue, 01 Sep 2015 08:46:29 -0500 Tue, 01 Sep 2015 08:46:29 -0500 UIC VCAA-Provost Search Committee Click here to see this online<br />[http://chancellor.uic.edu/files/messages/2015_0325_vcaa_search.html]<br /> <br />U I C Office of the Chancellor <br />[http://chancellor.uic.edu/]<br /> <br />Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,<br /><br />I write to introduce the search committee for the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
