The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign maintains over 500 active institutional linkages with international partners representing more than 40 different countries around the world. These agreements range from student exchanges, some now entering their third decade of activity, to faculty exchange and collaborative research agreements with national research agencies, to innovative joint educational programs, including our own GET, leading to dual or multi-institutional degrees or certificate programs.
Illinois hosts a total of six federally funded U.S. Department of Education Title VI Centers in international and area studies, each focusing on a different world region or issue. They include National Resource Centers on African Studies; East Asian and Pacific Studies; European Union Studies; Global Studies; Latin American and Caribbean Studies; and Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies. Over 600 faculty from all colleges on campus are affiliated with one or more of these centers. Additional centers within the Office of Illinois International Programs include the Program in Arms Control & Disarmament and International Security; the Women and Gender in Global Perspectives Program; and the International Forum on U.S. Studies.
Because of vast international presence the University is seeking a vendor, through their expertise, service, and software, to provide traveler support and crisis management assistance.
