University of Illinois Administration
The University of Illinois – the state’s most comprehensive public
university – is composed of three campuses: Urbana-Champaign, Chicago,
and Springfield with regional medical campuses in Peoria and Rockford.
Extension offices, research parks, and the U of I hospital expand the
reach of the university.
Overseeing the 77,000-student institution is the Board of Trustees
and the U of I president. Along with the chancellor/vice president of
each of the campuses, the board and president keep the University
competitive, growing and fully committed to its core missions of
education, research, public service, and economic development.
Also crucial to the effective administration of the University are
the vice presidents for academic affairs, finance, health affairs, and
research, as well as the offices of University Counsel, Governmental
Relations, and University Relations.
The units within University Administration provide vital services and
support – such as business and financial services, IT, facilities
planning, auditing, legal counsel – to the campuses and their students,
faculty, and staff.
Together the campuses and administration operate as a team with an
overarching objective: to make the University of Illinois "best in
class" in research, education, public service and its other core
