Uniform Shirts to be Worn by F&S Frontline Staff

Aug 18, 2020

Dear Colleagues,

Beginning Monday, August 31, F&S frontline staff will start wearing a uniform shirt while preforming service and project work. This new Illini Blue attire will emphasize the unit’s role as the caretaker for the university’s physical environment by presenting a consistent visual appearance on campus that reflects the professionalism of our team while contributing to proactive university security efforts.


The shirts will also be labeled with each employee’s name and feature the block I. The apparel will aid in our ongoing customer-focused COVID-19 response strategies, allowing you to better identify and interact with F&S employees during the return to on-site instruction. 

F&S dress guidelines have always focused on the importance of maintaining a professional appearance as a representative of our organization and the university. As a means to help achieve our strategic objective of furthering engagement with the campus community and especially during this vital period, the new shirts will strengthen F&S’ commitment to being a responsive and highly valued service provider while highlighting the unit’s vast expertise and capabilities.
