Welcome to the Illinois Administrative Professionals


The Illinois Administrative Professionals is an organization for University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign employees in certain Civil Service classifications. We celebrated the 70th birthday of IAP in December 2018. Over the years, office support functions and responsibilities have changed, as have the skills required to perform these roles effectively. Illinois Administrative Professionals seeks to build collegiality across campus. Our primary objectives are:

  • Establish a fellowship and create a high standard of ethics among members.
  • Assist in the professional development of members.
  • Serve as a forum for the discussion of issues affecting support staff of the University of Illinois.
  • Further knowledge about the University of Illinois and uphold its honor and dignity.
