Dr. Timothy J. Flanagan began his service as Illinois State's 18th president on August 15, 2013.
The former president of Framingham State University has a successful history in leading universities, including serving as provost and vice president for academic affairs and a professor of criminal justice at the College at Brockport, State University of New York.
Students who choose to study with the professors at Illinois State University have available to them majors in over 59 areas. These majors are contained within our six academic Colleges: Applied Science and Technology, Arts and Sciences, Business, Education, Fine Arts, and Mennonite College of Nursing. We think of ourselves as a large institution with a small school atmosphere. In other words, students who remark about their undergraduate or graduate experiences on our campus generally say that the campus has a very "small" feel to it. This is a true testament to the faculty and staff at Illinois State University who work with our students on a daily basis.
