Student Affairs

Our Priorities

The division has identified five key priorities which are highlighted below.

  • Engagement opportunities and programs for leadership development

    Student Affairs creates immersive learning opportunities, enriching the Illinois State experience for every student. Private support allows us to grow and expand the quality and quantity of offerings.

  • Co-curricular engagement scholarships

    Access to distinctive experiences help set Illinois State students apart. Scholarships make it possible for students to afford experiences that prepare them for a life of impact and success.

  • Professional and career development

    Gifts supporting our four-year professional and career development plan give students greater access to programs, services, staff, and employers. Your financial support strengthens the Redbird advantage.

  • Advancement of inclusive practice and community

    With additional private support, the division can provide new and innovative programs that aid in the persistence and success of all students.

  • Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning

    Civic engagement is a core Illinois State value. Funding will support a resource center that will solidify the University's commitment to preparing the next generation for service to others and building stronger communities.
