Greetings! We know that this is a very difficult time for everybody, but rest assured that academic advisors Keshia Atkins and Anna Ivy (with the help of office administrator Nancy Rahn) will continue to offer a full range of advising services. Our physical office is closed for the time being so all advising will be virtual until further notice. You can connect with us in one or both of the following ways:
- You can email us your questions and concerns, and we will email you back. If you have an established relationship with a particular advisor and would like to email her directly you may, or you can email email@example.com in which case Anna, Keshia, and Nancy will all see your message and the first person available (and equipped) to reply will do so.
- If you want to communicate with an advisor in real time, schedule an appointment by calling the office at 217-333-4346 between 9:00 and noon or between 1:00 and 4:00. If you have to leave a message, please include your name, UIN, the reason for the appointment, your preferred advisor (if any), and--very important--the days and times you are available. Someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
