Honor Dr. Stephen Schwark at His Retirement
Dr. Steve Schwark, professor in the UIS Global Studies Department and Director of International Studies, is retiring soon. During his many years, he has had a transformational impact on UIS in a global setting.
We are asking friends, former students, and others to join with us in recognizing and honoring Steve at this time by contributing to a special fund named for him. This fund, the Dr. Stephen J. Schwark China Exchange Program Fund, will provide support for travel and other expenses incurred by Chinese faculty members visiting UIS.
Please send your gift to the new Dr. Stephen J. Schwark China Exchange Program Fund, either by using the Donate button below or by sending your gift to the UIS Office of Development. Thank you!
