Resources Overview

Illinois commitment to providing a global classroom is reflected in the number of units, programs, and centers that serve as resources for students, faculty, and staff to engage internationally on campus and abroad.

With the growing number of international students at Illinois, our campus instructors and administrators are confronting new challenges in the classroom. In addition to resources to assist faculty and staff in working with international students, there are a number of offices at the Urbana campus with an international focus. Submit a resource

Globalization Conversations

Over the 2015 fall semester, Illinois International held a series of town-hall style panel presentations and open discussions with students, faculty, and staff offering attendees the opportunity to voice their experiences and offer input to strengthen Illinois as a preeminent global university.

Help Illinois International continue the conversation by providing feedback on the open discussion questions posed—even if you were unable to attend.
