When I was approached about serving in the Faculty Partner Program as a liaison with the soccer team, I couldn’t help but “assist”. The intersection of academics and athletics is so important as UIS continues to move into Division II play within the GLVC, and as we begin to attract more and more student-athletes to campus. As a professor who strives to be as personable as can be with students, the opportunity to interact with athletes in their setting is exciting. I intend to be as involved with the team as much as I can and to show support for them not only in the classroom, but also in their training, and time on the field.
