Center for Global Studies

Illinois College's Center for Global Studies serves as the campus hub for international and intercultural learning. The newly renovated space opened in August 2018 and is home to faculty teaching world languages, cultures and international studies. 

The center is designed to encourage collaboration and to provide all students with opportunities for a global education. Through the center, you can:

  • Participate in French, Spanish and Japanese cultural activities like watching films, attending presentations, practicing conversation in various languages, listening to music, playing games from different cultures and preparing and eating foods from around the world.
  • Use the multipurpose space that hosts courses, special events, exhibits and opportunities for intercultural community engagement. 
  • Work with tutors and in language partners programs to strengthen language skills. 
  • Explore opportunities and resources for studying abroad or traveling to destinations throughout the world with IC’s BreakAway and Study Abroad programs
