Who We Are
Facilities & Services (F&S) is the largest unit on the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus. F&S provides all physical plant, operational, and essential services for sustaining an environment that fosters the research, teaching, and public engagement activities of the university. The organization employs approximately 1,200 dedicated men and women serving in both Civil Service and Academic Professional positions. The F&S goal is to support the university's education, research, and outreach missions by improving the physical condition of the facilities and grounds, reducing energy consumption through education and use of alternative fuel sources, and increasing customer satisfaction by providing quality services in a responsive, reliable, and customer-focused manner.
At F&S, one of our guiding principles is that we are fully committed to “a diverse workforce in an inclusive workplace that unleashes the talents of all employees to create value, deliver superior support, and develop innovative solutions for the customers we serve. “
As an organization, we fully support the university’s commitment to the most fundamental principles of academic freedom, equality of opportunity, and human dignity which requires that “decisions involving students and employees be based on merit and free from discrimination in all its forms.”
By creating a workplace that allows everyone to feel welcome and provides equal access to opportunity for success, we will strengthen our role supporting the mission of the university. Ultimately, creating an ongoing discussion about diversity and inclusiveness will make our organization better and move us closer to meeting the evolving needs of customers.
