Approvals for the Center Secured
In January 2018, the UIS Campus Senate approved the new Center for Lincoln Studies at UIS, and in March 2018, The Illinois Board of Higher Education added its approval. Special thanks to James Ermatinger, Dean of the UIS College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, for everything he did to negotiate this process.
The Center for Lincoln Studies at UIS is expected to be a national base for scholarship, teaching and public history about Lincoln’s life, leadership and legacy, and give students an opportunity to collaborate with Lincoln scholars on research, history and public policy projects. Because it will engage broad campus and community audiences, the Center will add to the wealth of all things Lincoln in Springfield, Illinois.
Stellar – Because a Center for Lincoln Studies at UIS instructs, inspires and elevates all of us.
