Dear Future Redbird,

Here at Illinois State, we strive to provide opportunities for students, staff, and faculty to participate productively in a global society. In fact, diversity is one of our core values. We are committed to fostering an inclusive environment characterized by cultural understanding and engagement, ethical behavior, and a commitment to social justice.

Please enjoy the articles below—just a few examples of our upcoming programs and offerings that celebrate diversity and expand the perspective of the entire Redbird family. As always, if you have any questions about what Illinois State can offer you, let’s talk. Our Office of Admissions is here to help!
