Facilities & Technology | New Field Station at UIS
“There’s a new addition to our campus that lets us say for the first time: ‘UIS is on the lake!’” Chancellor Koch recently said about the new UIS Field Station at Lake Springfield. This new resource includes a 3,000-square-foot building, more than 400 feet of lakeshore and a dock system – all just a few minutes from campus. Under the leadership of Dr. Tom Rothfus, Director of Emiquon (pictured at right), the Field Station will serve as a multipurpose educational, research and recreational facility. Plans for facility improvements are now underway, but faculty in Environmental Science and Biology are already using the Field Station, and several classes are scheduled there for Fall, 2018. The Chancellor added, “I’ve even heard there may be a collegiate bass fishing team in our future.”
