Program Support for Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Professional Degree: Urbana-Champaign
Program Support for Research, Centers and Faculty: Urbana-Champaign
To sustain and advance its leadership position in public higher education, the University of Illinois must position itself as a powerful point of convergence for new knowledge, innovation and strategic educational approaches. Programmatic support can help achieve this goal by allowing the University to engage with the most important intellectual leaders and prominent agenda setters from around the world. Such distinguished guests often teach short courses, offer public lectures, conduct seminars and lead colloquia and symposia planned around their research, professional endeavors or areas of expertise. Programmatic support can also enable the University to create much-needed research programs and/or facilities that will unite disciplines and improve teaching and research in all of the diverse fields of learning and inquiry led by the U of I and its campuses.
