Welcome to UIC!  I hope by now you are settling into your role as a faculty member at UIC.  While I was able to meet with you briefly during New Faculty Orientation, I thought it would be beneficial to give you the opportunity to meet with staff from OVCR.  We have set up the following brown bag lunches and encourage you to attend as many as you like.  OVCR will provide beverages and we encourage you to bring your lunch to these informal discussions.  Each session will consist of a brief presentation followed by the opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues.
