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 embrace world cultures and global perspectives, engage international and domestic students, and empower all students with global learning opportunities through co-curricular activities and programs.  

The vision of IE is to provide transformative learning experience to nurture world citizens and future leaders in local and global contexts. 

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.
