Management Information Systems

““What do you want to be when you grow up?” This is a question that is often asked to students. Quite honestly, I did not know when I enrolled at UIU. However, I found my calling through working with the I.T. team as a work study student. I was able to expand my technical knowledge, time management skills and communication skills through working with the I.T. team. I was able to take my experiences into the classroom at UIU, and developed my skills even further through the residence life program as a resident assistant. I am thankful for the opportunities to grow and learn at UIU through hands-on learning and training from faculty and staff. The faculty and staff help you not only develop as a student, but as a leader in society. I am proud to have worked hard and earned two degrees through UIU! Go Peacocks!”
