Message from the Vice Provost

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

As I look back upon the past year, I am grateful to each member of the Illinois International team and thankful to our partners across campus who have dedicated their time and effort to the numerous international education activities that took place this year.

Our summer newsletter provides a chance to look back on our accomplishments through the Illinois International Annual Report and note the exciting activities of the summer months.

As we prepare for the next academic year, I am enthusiastic about the opportunities that await and look forward to working with you as we continue to provide transformative learning experiences for our students and support the activities of our faculty and staff.
