Core Services

Global Education and Training provides valuable opportunities for individuals from all corners of the world to develop global competencies at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and prepare current and future industry leaders to work in diverse, international contexts. We accomplish this through our core services of program development, program management, and outreach.

Program Development

We build relationships with University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign units and departments, international companies, educational institutions, and government agencies to develop academic training programs. We create customized opportunities that align with the resources, needs and interests of our participants. We implement federally funded programs in partnership with national organizations.

Program Management

We advise and support our participants throughout the entirety of our training programs. Every program has at least one dedicated full-time staff member providing management. When managing our diverse portfolio of programs, we respond to feedback and best practices across industries. Meet our staff.


We maintain collaborative links that facilitate participant mobility. We are responsive to the needs and interests of our partners. We collaborate with national partners to both enhance and supplement academic programming with experiential, cultural visits. We connect with local businesses, governments, and community organizations to provide “real-world” practical training experiences beyond the classroom. Connect with us.
