UIC Chancellor Michael Amiridis hosted an “Office Hours” conversation Monday in Student Center East to give the campus community a chance to share ideas and ask questions. Other campus leaders were also on hand to respond to questions from students and employees.

Amiridis will host additional “Office Hours” events March 1 in the Student Services Building and April 1 in Student Center West.



Nominations can be submitted through Feb. 15 for the 2016 Provost’s Excellence in Undergraduate Advising Award.

Established in 2011, the award recognizes those who have demonstrated exemplary skills in academic advising and a commitment to student success. Eligible employees have nonfaculty positions and spend a significant portion of their job advising undergraduates. Three $750 awards are given each year.



The UIC Teaching Learning Center will host several faculty events in spring semester to advance teaching and learning in the classroom.

Upcoming events include:

• “Finding and Exploring Your Teacher Voice,” 5–8 p.m. Feb. 4, 1-470 Daley Library

• “Flipped Instruction and Beyond,” 1–2 p.m. Feb. 8, 1-010 Daley Library




The first step for student proposals to help make UIC a greener campus are due Feb. 15 to the Sustainability Fee Advisory Board.

The Sustainability Fee, $3 per semester paid by all UIC students, funds small, short-term projects, helps subsidize larger, long-term projects and helps fund student travel to related conferences.

The advisory board includes students, faculty and staff.

All UIC students and student organizations are eligible to apply.



Nominations are now being accepted for the Chancellor’s Student Service and Leadership Awards.

The volunteerism and leadership awards include the Chancellor’s Student Service Award, Eugertha Bates Memorial Award and Jane Addams Distinguished Service Award. Students may also be nominated for induction into the Activities Honorary Society. Outstanding undergraduate, graduate and professional students who have given their time and talent to campus or community service can be nominated for the awards.

Nominations can be submitted until 5 p.m. Feb. 12.

Winners will be honored at the 44th Annual Chancellor’s Student Service and Leadership Awards Ceremony April 14.
