University of Illinois Day at the Capitol

Illinois Connection at the UIAA and the Student Alumni Ambassadors are partnering with the IL Student Senate and various student groups from the Urbana-Champaign, Chicago, and Springfield campuses to sponsor this U of I Day at the Capitol.

The University of Illinois ranks as one of the world's greatest centers of learning and one of the state's most valuable assets. In order to maintain this level of excellence, the University and its campuses depend upon ongoing support from elected officials, community leaders and the public.

University of Illinois Day at the Capitol provides you and other advocates an opportunity to collectively communicate to legislators the value of the University of Illinois to you, the state and the nation.

We make it easy by:

  • Partnering you with other advocates
  • Briefing you on issues and talking points
  • Setting up appointments with legislators for you
  • Providing information packets for you to leave with your legislators

The day begins with a lunch briefing and review of key messages at the Inn at 835. Throughout the afternoon, participants will be scheduled to meet with legislators and staff. At the end of the day attendees will attend a reception at the Hall of Flags in the Howlett Building.

Given the state's current economic situation, it is more important than ever for legislators around the state of Illinois to hear directly from YOU about your support for the University of Illinois.
