In keeping with the Illinois Wesleyan mission, the International Office, through its
services and programs, seeks to develop students' ability to understand and analyze
contemporary societies outside the U.S.; enable students to understand their own identity
and culture and be sensitive to commonalities and differences among and within cultures;
help students deepen and broaden their disciplinary knowledge through study abroad;
and prepare students for responsible citizenship in a global community.
