Thank you for your interest in Illinois State University! Each year, our campus welcomes international students and scholars to become members of the Redbird family. We currently have individuals representing over 70 different countries from around the globe. Illinois State values diversity and encourages the fostering of a global perspective.
"We will continue our efforts to bring more international students to our campus, not for financial gain, but to increase Illinois State's geographical diversity. A university that aspires to prepare students for success in a competitive global environment should welcome and educate more students from around the globe."
Illinois State University President Larry Dietz (2016)
