New University of Illinois President impressed

 CHAMPAIGN – University of President Timothy Killeen has been visiting all three University of Illinois campuses during his first week on the job.

In a letter to students and staff, he said, “I saw first hand your creativity and incisiveness of thought… your enthusiastic spirit… and your deep commitment to service. These were just a few of the many qualities that stood out to me.”

Killeen was the vice chancellor for research and the president of the Research Foundation of the State University of New York.

He was officially named the 20th president of the University of Illinois earlier this year.
