Chancellor's Message: Health Science Enterprise Town Hall

Dear Colleagues,

As many of you are aware, we have been engaged for the past few months in wide-ranging discussions regarding the organization of the health science enterprise on this campus going forward.

The University of Illinois Board of Trustees devoted its July retreat to this topic, and we have held meetings with deans, vice chancellors, faculty governance groups and many others to discuss options. Our goal is to organize the health science enterprise in a manner that will enable it to adapt to the changing health care environment and be a leader among university-based health centers around the country.

We invite you to a town hall meeting October 1 from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. in Thompson Rooms A and B at UIC Student Center West, 828 S. Wolcott Ave. During the meeting, we will share with you possible options for an organizational structure and will refine those options with your input.

We look forward to seeing you there.


Robert A. Easter
President, University of Illinois
