Our Vision

UIC will serve the citizens of Chicago and the world by being an international leader in research, scholarship, and innovation, and by creating a globally connected campus community which supports faculty, staff, and students as they address the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.

What We Do

The Office of Global Engagement supports UIC’s Strategy for Global Engagement and Internationalization. OGE collaborates with colleges and departments across UIC to expand the opportunities for faculty and students to engage in global learning and research. This includes developing faculty-led study abroad programs, exchanges, contract programs, and research collaborations.

Who We Are

The Office of Global Engagement has five reporting units that, cumulatively, represent a broad-reaching enterprise of services, resources, and programs designed to advance the internationalization of UIC.

  • Office of International Services
  • Study Abroad Office
  • Tutorium for Intensive English
  • Programs for International Partnerships
  • UIC Global
  • The Director of International Affairs and Outreach also reports to the VPGE.

In addition, The Vice Provost for Global Engagement chairs the UIC International Advisory Committee which oversees UIC global engagement through committees such as International Students and Scholars (Incoming Students and Scholars), Campus Internationalization (Certificates, Co-Curricular Programming and the Campus Environment/Experience), Study Abroad (Outgoing Student Mobility) and International Research and Scholarship
