International Outreach Council – Mission

The International Outreach Council is made up of outreach coordinators and other staff from the University of Illinois International and Area Studies Centers.  We meet on a regular basis to discuss and plan collaborations in campus, K-12, and community outreach programming designed to promote interest and the development of expertise in international and area studies.

In addition to sponsoring panel discussions, visiting scholars from universities abroad, international studies courses, and foreign language programs on campus, the International Outreach Council administers programs to support teacher professional development and learning experiences for K-12 students.
