Illinois ConDescription: http://app7.vocusgr.com/ViewAttachment.aspx?EID=UuPJzm1iaG9lIRtp96TxXmIBUsiPBkG9xIAGcz1sQCw%3dnection is the grassroots, advocacy network for the University of Illinois.

Through this initiative alumni, students, faculty and friends serve as advocates for the University to ensure support from the state and federal government. By joining Illinois Connection, you will become part of a growing network of nearly 13,000 loyal alumni, students, donors and friends. 

As a vital part of this initiative, you will decide your own level of involvement. You can choose to:

*  Write your legislators an email during key decision making times

Help us advocate for state and federal funding, student financial aid, and research -- which will help ensure a bright, successful future for the University of Illinois.
