The history of the origin of the University of Illinois Springfield (UIS) can be traced back to 1960 when some central Illinois citizens came together to form the Springfield Committee for Higher Education with the aim of building a university in the capital city. In 1969, legislation to create Sangamon State University (SSU) was passed. SSU started operating in 1970. The University of Illinois merged with SSU in 1995 to form UIS. Currently, the university comprises four colleges and is recognized by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). Also, many of its programs are accredited by various professional accrediting agencies.
