Elevate scholarship and academic excellence in every field.
Illinois State's approach to teaching and learning reflects the University's commitment to individualized attention, which results in unique student-faculty partnerships and mentoring opportunities. Undergraduates regularly work alongside faculty on creative initiatives and research that gain national attention.
Equally significant is the effort to provide our ambitious students with financial support. Through endowments and scholarships, private support will bolster our ability to defray college costs, giving ISU an advantage in enrolling top students who want to become Redbirds.
Funds raised through Redbirds Rising during Birds Give Back will give Illinois State the means to attract the brightest students who are eager to learn from the best professors.
