Chuck Coderko is the December Employee of the Month

Chuck Coderko has been named the University of Illinois Springfield Employee of the Month for December 2016.

As director of construction, Coderko is overseeing the construction of the new UIS Student Union. He has handled all aspects of the project from the “programming” phase, through schematic design, construction documents, bidding and now construction.

“He not only worked seamlessly with a large group of consultants, developing and carrying out their contracts, but also made everyone at UIS feel included in the design process,” said his nominator.

Coderko is also known for his great sense of humor and the ability to always put a positive spin on any situation.

“He has an excellent personality and works well with faculty, staff and students,” said his nominator. “He is extremely well organized and multi-tasks extremely well. He has upwards of thirty constructions projects ongoing at all times, but is always game to handle more.”

Coderko is often one of the first people on campus in the morning and often works through lunch and into the evening if necessary. He regularly volunteers to participate in faculty and student presentations in the evenings and on weekends.

“He is well liked and respected by his co-workers, faculty, staff and students and is always first to step up and provide more than has been asked of him,” said his nominator.

“Chuck says this is the best job he has ever had!”
