The college has identified six key priorities which are highlighted below.
Privately funded scholarships enable the college to attract and retain high-performing students who are prepared to enter and impact the global and diverse world of education.
Innovative learning environments are fundamental to preparing successful teachers. Staying current with changing teaching tools and technology is a challenge that private financial support will help the college address.
The diversity of schools today requires education students gain an appreciation for other perspectives and cultures. International study and cultural awareness are just two of the ways students gain global competency.
Named, endowed professorships and visiting professorships provide the University with the resources to attract top faculty who create and lead world-class academic programs.
Illinois State remains one of the few universities to offer teacher candidates the opportunity to work in a laboratory school. Metcalf Elementary and University High School are integral to ongoing faculty research. Funding opportunities range from scholarships to program/faculty support and capital projects.
Generous, ongoing support for the annual fund allows for a quick response to opportunities that benefit students and faculty, while enhancing the college’s reputation for academic excellence.
