U of I Classes in Peoria


U of I Classes in Peoria

By WEEK Reporter

The U-I-S Peoria Center was previously located on the I-C-C campus in East Peoria.

According to the Dean of the College of Business Management, moving downtown provides convenience and affordability for those seeking a bachelors or M-B-A.

He says in these economic times, it's important for Peoria to have affordable public education in the heart of the city.

The classes meet in the evening or online to be accessible to working students.
Professors travel from Springfield to teach the courses.

Exactly where downtown is this school, whatever its name is? Journalists usually try to answer who, what, when, where, why and get their facts straight.

I'm sitting here looking at my University of Illinois AT SPRINGFIELD diploma. It says "By authority of the Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois and upon recommendation of the..." UIS IS UofI. Idiot people. It used to be Sangamon State. Now it is a branch of U of I. By the way, the U Of I we all think of when we hear U of I is actualy UIUC (University of Illinois Urbana Champagne).

What does it say on the diploma? U of I, or U of I at S.

If you have ever tried transferring from UIS to UIUC or UIC, you know these schools are different. The curriculum at one college differ from the curriculum at another U of I in difficulty and focus. Also, admission requirements are very different at each university. Different faculty, different courses, different students, different schools. The headline "U of I Classes in Peoria" is still correct. If you are from central Illinois, you will (should)know the differences. End of lecture.

I am a faculty member and I have taught at UIS in Peoria. Let me tell you, if I handed out a business card that said "U of I" and did not add the "Springfield" I would be misrepresenting myself and have been told that explicitly by administration here. Fix your headline and protect faculty and students who teach at that scary building/parking lot.

I just have one comment and it is directed at Really?, no matter how you slice and dice it, it is still the UofI...whether the degree is earned in Spfld, Champ/Urbana, or Chicago. We fought to keep the school Sangamon State University and UofI fought to make us part of their system..so again it is a degree from UofI.

As a student of the school let me correct both of you. It is part of the same school with various locations to attract more students. I should know, I attend the University.

Its the same as any other state, UIC (U of I at Chicago) isn't U of I, its part of the same state program. Every state has it, examples are UTEP and IUPUI, or in California it is San Jose St., Sand Diego St, are apart of California St. same programs but different schools and size

Misleading news title. UIS is NOT UofI. Must be a UIS alumnus working there...You are SPRINGFIELD, you are not the flagship school known as Illinois.
