Starting this Spring, UISConnection will be undergoing major changes. The upgrade will give UIS students an amazing new tool to find out about events, join organizations, and track their co-curricular experiences. The site will also serve as a major resource to student groups as a way to promote events, keep up-to-date rosters, store documents, conduct elections, track service hours, and so much more!
There will be special training workshops available. Contact the Office of Student Life for their next available workshops.
All are welcome to any of the workshops to see what the system has to offer.
Note: All student organization space requests will be moving to UISConnection, with the current webtool form being discontinued at the end of this semester.
