Hogan to join UI Springfield faculty after sabbatical
URBANA — When former University of Illinois President Michael Hogan completes his sabbatical a year from now, he plans to work at the University of Illinois' Springfield campus.
UI spokesman Tom Hardy confirmed Tuesday night that Hogan recently decided to work at the Springfield campus following the one-year sabbatical that began when his resignation took effect on July 1.
"As part of Hogan's appointment agreement, he got to select the campus for his faculty location," Hardy said. "The trustees gave him the choice, and he chose the University of Illinois at Springfield."
Hardy said that Hogan has already become officially attached to the UI Springfield campus.
"As an esteemed scholar in American history, Hogan will be working with the chair of the History Department there to establish what kind of work he will be doing," Hardy said. "That hasn't been determined yet."
Robert Easter became the UI's new president on July 1.
