In 2017 we celebrate the Sesquicentennial of the University of Illinois. For 150 years, a creative mix of scholars and teachers have produced innovations, made discoveries, and engaged beyond our walls in ways that have shaped the world. From the development of the first web browser, to the discovery of a third form of life, the pioneering triumphs in women’s education, and the bold move for wheelchair accessibility, we have been an engine of innovation and impact. To make our greatest accomplishments more visible, Chancellor Jones is supporting the Sesquicentennial Design Competition. Interdisciplinary teams of students will create designs for campus installations that communicate essential information about our achievements.

Come with a team or come to make a team! Teams may include students from any discipline. Students from design, history, the arts, humanities, education, engineering and a variety of other fields are encouraged to participate. Teams of up to five students from at least two different disciplines will work together for 8 weeks during the spring of 2017 and present their design on May 3 to expert reviewers. The wining team will be awarded $500 per team member. Design Competition participants have the option to sign up for 2 credit hours.

If you are interested, attend an informational meeting on Monday, March 13 in room 219, Temple Hoyne Buell Hall.
