Before we celebrate Homecoming: Redbirds in Flight, The Office of the President will host the 2021 Faculty/Staff Appreciation program on March 25. As a part of the appreciation program, the Alumni Association has created a new way for our alumni faculty/staff to display their Redbird pride with a special Zoom background! Download the background and use it on March 25 and beyond to show you are #RedbirdProud.

Then don’t forget to deck out your workspace to enter this year’s Homecoming workspace competition and register for other Homecoming events happening April 5-11. Also mark your calendars for Saturday, April 10 at 10 a.m. to catch our virtual Homecoming parade on Illinois State‚Äôs Facebook page.

Visit to keep updated on all programs and activities. Be sure to show your Redbird spirit on all your Zoom meetings too with our new backgrounds!
