Doing the most good (priorities)

Student Affairs is committed to providing life-changing opportunities for our Illinois students.

As State and Federal funding shrinks, we rely even more on the conviction and benevolence of alumni and friends who are as committed as we are to providing transformative experiences for our students.

Some of our highest priorities for new donor funding are programs related to student safety, health and wellness, diversity education and leadership development.

This year, alumni and friends of Student Affairs may be especially interested in supporting:

The Illinois Leadership® Center – ILC programs emphasize experiential learning, helping students incorporate cutting-edge leadership theory and knowledge into their own style of working with and leading others. Your generous support allows us to offer these programs to all students free-of-charge.

The Illinois Experience Fund – The new Illinois Experience Fund supports initiatives that create a shared student experience around inclusion, service, civic engagement, spirit,relationship-building and leadership. Your gifts to the Illinois Experience Fund support innovative programs that establish connections among students, help them find their niche within the larger University community, and promote the University’s core values.

To find out more about these and other opportunities to support transformative experiences for students at Illinois, please contact the Student Affairs Office of Advancement, or visit our Make-a-Gift page
