Project Midstate Student Support for Teaching

Homegrown, Hometown Teachers...That's the idea behind the University of Illinois Springfield's Project Midstate Student Support.

Invest In UIS

Our motto, "helping local students become local teachers" has been in effect since the program's inception in 1992. We believe Springfield's educators of tomorrow are sitting in Springfield's classrooms today; and we exist to reap that harvest.
