For 150 years, we have put students first. We are a home to student organizations, offer housing for UIUC and Parkland students, award nearly $200K per year in scholarships, and ensure that students have opportunities to develop their leadership skills by helping to lead and govern our organization.
We offer staff- and student-led programs that reflect our mission and commitment to using dialogue, action, and reflection to advance positive change in the world. Discover how we advance social justice, environmental protection, interfaith cooperation, and global engagement. And explore how we can support you in that work, too!
