International Education

International Education

The University of Illinois has the largest international student community of any US public university, with over 10,000 international students (21% of the student population) from 115 countries. Established in 2014, International Education became one of the eight units under the Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Relations.

The mission of International Education (IE) is to assist with creating "inclusive, connected, and purposeful campus environment" to engage international students, and to provide learning opportunities for all students to enhance their transformative learning experiences as global citizens and future leaders. 

With the weekly iCU OIIR Intercultural Dialogue Series (by international students), InterConnect (for international students), and Global Engagement Lounge (with international students), as well as GLOBE (membership only) and Fall/Spring Break and Summer programs, International Education (IE) offers events throughout the year to enhance the transformative learning experience for all students at the University of Illinois.
