Global Impact Overview
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is a community of students, scholars, and alumni changing the world. With our land-grant heritage as a foundation, we pioneer innovative research that tackles global problems and expands the human experience. Our transformative learning experiences—both in and out of the classroom—are designed to produce alumni who desire to make a significant, societal impact.
Illinois International Programs provides the campus and its partners with the expertise a university requires to be truly world class. From safety and security services to top-tier exchange programs and partnerships, Illinois International is home to all the international activity the Illinois campus is famous for.
With one of the largest international student bodies in the United States, we take great pride in being one of the most sought after higher education destinations in the world. But being a truly global university is about much more than having a large international student body. What makes Illinois unique is the fact that we truly offer a global classroom, both here and abroad. Our students benefit greatly from the rich intellectual exchange made possible by our diverse student body, but it’s also our international research, study abroad, hundreds of partnerships, and robust student and faculty exchanges that position us a leader in this field.
