Message from the Vice Provost

Dear Colleagues,

As I look back upon the past year, I am grateful to each member of the IIP team and our partners across campus for your tremendous efforts, hard work, and dedication. The past year has been challenging for our international community and the collective efforts of our team have allowed the University to not only survive, but to thrive. As I look ahead to the coming year, I am excited about the opportunities that await and look forward to working with you as we continue to make Illinois a preeminent, global university.

I wish you a holiday season filled with joy, peace, hope, well-earned rest, and success for 2018.
