In my short few months at UIC, I have come to see Arlene as our greatest supporter, our strongest advocate, and a most caring individual. She has set the bar as high as it goes in service to a campus and community she loves, UIC. And probably most important of all to Arlene, she is a proud UIC alumna. <br /><br />Arlene has served as Vice President and Associate Chancellor since 2000. During that time, she raised the visibility of the University of Illinois Alumni Association on campus and in colleges through internal and external marketing campaigns; established the first e-newsletter targeted to all UIC alumni; initiated the Points of Pride Campaign and the History and Traditions project; and worked tirelessly with alumni, faculty and staff to create the Pier Room and Circle Lounge displays. Many of these innovations and accomplishments took place as the campus faced budget challenges that limited the support available to her office. <br /><br />And there is more. During her tenure, Arlene created a master event calendar for the campus that is still in use today. She established the annual Student Research Forum, which is juried by faculty and nearly 200 alumni. This is a singularly important achievement for UIC as we strive to further engage undergraduates in our research enterprise. <br /><br />Arlene was responsible for two annual campus-wide major alumni award events, which often incorporated major campus anniversaries (e.g. Navy Pier 60th; UIC 25th; UICC 50th). She encouraged the Campus Alumni Advisory Board—an advisory to the UIAA Board of Directors—to become an “operational board” for the campus. CAAB now co-sponsors networking events and sponsors the annual “Best Practices” event, which is designed to help college alumni boards become more effective. It’s also important to recognize that she raised the profile of our signature “Lighting of the Flame” ceremony by incorporating it into our sporting events and, in the process, gaining wider recognition for alumni and encouraging participation in UIC athletic events.<br /><br />Arlene also has served UIC in too many roles to list here, dating back to 1986. For example, she participated on numerous committees that have greatly benefited our community and has been recognized with many well-deserved awards and honors. She also worked with engineering student leaders to establish the UIC Engineering EXPO, the annual exhibition of senior design projects, and to organize the Young Engineers Network, which established the Engineering Career Prep Day, both of which continue to this day and engage a significant number of alumni.<br /><br />Loren Taylor, President of the UI Alumni Association had this to say: “In her 15 years with the Alumni Association, Arlene has been a constant champion for UIC and its alumni. She has helped to advance the interests of the University and has been steadfast in celebrating the accomplishments of its graduates. Her service has been both valued and appreciated.”<br /><br />It is therefore with sadness, but with gratitude, that we thank Arlene Norsym for her many years of passionate and devoted service to UIC. We wish her the very best in all her future endeavors—and I hope she has more time to spend with her grandchildren, too.<br /><br />A reception to honor Arlene will take place on Sept. 28, from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. in Student Center East. More information will be forthcoming. I hope you will join us to wish Arlene a happy retirement, knowing that her legacy of service to UIC will go on.<br /><br />Thank you very much, Arlene, from all of us at UIC.<br /><br />Michael D.

It is imprudent to determine a 2015-16 salary program without knowing the University’s state appropriation, and we do not know how long the Statehouse budget impasse will last. Nevertheless, we must proceed with the 2015-16 academic personnel appointments, to be presented to the Board of Trustees in September.<br /><br />Therefore, we are temporarily deferring consideration of a 2015-16 salary program until after the state budget is settled and we know exactly what has been promised as our appropriation. Reappointments will be made at the current salaries. The salary program deferral applies to all personnel regardless of the funding line for the appointment. Once the state budget situation is resolved and the U of I deals with any adjustment in our spending plan that may be required, we will revisit the subject of salaries for 2015-16.<br /><br />We hope that this period of uncertainty will pass soon. The University continues to respond to all inquiries from the Governor's office and the legislature, and continues to press the case for robust state support for public higher education at each and every opportunity.<br /><br />Your patience and service to the University of Illinois is deeply appreciated.<br /><br />Sincerely,<br /><br />Tim Killeen<br />President<br /><br />©Copyright 2015 The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois <br /> officialx http://www.uic.edu/uic OfficialxFeed Tue, 28 Jul 2015 12:00:23 -0500 Tue, 28 Jul 2015 12:00:23 -0500 Crime Alert On July 27, at approximately 7:10 PM, a UIC student was the victim of an attempted aggravated robbery at 750 S.

There appears to have been little movement in the impasse since I last updated you three weeks ago, but I want to again assure you that the University is committed to protecting both our long- and short-term interests as negotiations continue in Springfield.<br /><br />For the short term, we have positioned ourselves to maintain operations and will continue to pay employees and vendors. Unlike agencies that are almost solely reliant on state funding, the University also receives revenue from other sources, which will be used appropriately and will help us weather this temporary interruption in state support. We also will continue to receive additional funding to meet our near-term obligations as the state pays the $114 million remaining on the University’s appropriation for the 2015 fiscal year that ended June 30. We expect those payments to continue into fiscal 2016.<br /><br />Due to the uncertainty, however, consideration of a salary program for the coming year is on hold and will be revisited once a budget is approved.<br /><br />For the longer term, we continue to advocate for adequate and responsible levels of future state funding that will preserve our excellence and maintain our service to our students and the state. Our efforts in this regard have been vigorous and ongoing since the budget process began. I added to them with a message to the governor last week that highlights the University’s more than $10 billion annual impact on the state’s economy and the power it holds to produce the human capital and innovation that will lead Illinois forward.<br /><br />I am confident that our message strikes a chord. Though the governor vetoed nearly all of a proposed state budget sent to him by the legislature, he did approve a funding increase for K-12 education. Public universities are part and parcel of the same purpose - to develop the highly skilled workforce that is critical for success in the 21st century.<br /><br />In the meantime, we continue to examine our operations from top to bottom so that we are prepared to respond to the level of funding that is ultimately approved by the state. <br /><br />I trust that the budget stalemate will be resolved to provide a much-needed sense of stability. Let us focus, though, on the job at hand, as we prepare to kick off the fall semester next month and welcome what we anticipate will be the largest-ever student enrollment on our three great campuses!<br /><br />Thank you again for your commitment to the University of Illinois. Please enjoy your Independence Day weekend, and I will provide further updates as the budget process unfolds.<br /><br />Sincerely,<br /><br />Tim Killeen<br />President<br /><br /><br />©Copyright 2015 The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois <br /><br /><br /> <br /> officialx http://www.uic.edu/uic OfficialxFeed Wed, 01 Jul 2015 10:12:45 -0500 Wed, 01 Jul 2015 10:12:45 -0500 Crime alert On June 26, at about 6:45 a.m., UIC Police learned that an earlier reported aggravated sexual assault occurred near the corner of Polk Street and Damen Avenue.

HR will now report to the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services (VCAS). The Chancellor has asked that I begin a thorough examination of our HR practices. We must identify opportunities to improve HR service delivery to the campus by working with stakeholders and campus leadership.<br /> <br />I am pleased to announce that Dr. Michael Ginsburg will become Interim Associate Vice Chancellor for Human Resources and will begin his transition into those duties immediately. In this new role Michael will direct UIC HR and will succeed Robert Crouch, Assistant Vice President for Human Resources, who is leaving UIC for other career opportunities. <br /> <br />Michael is a 37-year veteran of UIC, and has served as Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs since 1984. In the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs (VCSA) he directs budget and HR functions for units employing 500 staff and 1300 student workers. Through this work Michael has gained unique and extensive experience with HR from the user's perspective and has worked closely with UIC HR, the Office for Access and Equity, and Payroll and Benefits for many years. Michael has provided leadership for the job analysis process for the VCSA units and is also responsible for oversight of HR transactions, new employee orientation, professional staff development and employee recognition programs. <br /> <br />Michael's reputation as a collaborator and problem-solver has led him to serve on countless campus committees, including the contract bargaining team for the Graduate Employees Organization (for three contracts), the campus Compliance Committee, Academic Fiscal Officers, the OBFS Advisory Committee, the HR Advisory Committee, the Financial Aid Advisory Committee and the CampusCare Oversight Committee. He currently chairs the Student Fee Advisory Committee.<br /> <br />Michael's collaborative and inclusive approach will ensure that the interim leadership transition will be seamless and the HR operation continues to support the campus. Michael will be a strong leader in delivering services and in supporting the continuous transformation of UIC HR. A search for a permanent leader will commence in the very near future and will be chaired by Michael.<br /> <br />Mark Donovan<br />Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services<br /> official http://www.uic.edu/uic OfficialFeed Thu, 25 Jun 2015 18:53:26 -0500 Thu, 25 Jun 2015 18:53:26 -0500 CAPE 2015 - Nomination Deadline Extended Click here to see this online [http://chancellor.uic.edu/files/messages/2015_0625_cape.html]<br /> <br /><br />Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,<br /><br />The deadline for CAPE nominations and all supporting credentials has been extended to noon on July 2.<br /><br />Nominations are welcomed from UIC faculty, students, academic professionals, and support staff.
