Sixteen University of Illinois graduate students have been named Diversifying Higher Education Faculty in Illinois (DFI) Fellows by the Illinois Board of Higher Education.
DFI Fellowships are dedicated to diversifying the faculty and administration at colleges and universities in Illinois. To that end, fellowships support underrepresented graduate students who intend to teach or become administrators in higher education in the state following graduation.
Graduate Certificates are for students who have completed a bachelor’s degree but are not yet enrolled in a graduate degree program. Certificate credits can be stacked into a master’s program.
The three Graduate Certificate programs are:
The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign leads the world in teaching, research, and public engagement. We could not accomplish this without exceptional faculty members, staff members, and graduate teaching assistants.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — A new web tool speeds the discovery of drugs to kill Gram-negative bacteria, which are responsible for the vast majority of antibiotic-resistant infections and deaths. The tool also offers insights into discrete chemical changes that can convert drugs that kill other bacteria into drugs to fight Gram-negative infections. The team proved the system works by modifying a Gram-positive drug and testing it against three different Gram-negative bacterial culprits in mouse sepsis. The drug was successful against each.
