Bringing the world to Illinois

The College of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences (ACES) has long been involved in international knowledge, learning, exchange, and collaboration. With a strong record and distinguished history in institutional capacity building in various developing countries as well as consistent and vibrant world-wide scientific, educational, and outreach activities, the Office of International Programs continues to build on these linkages and promotes sustainable international engagements.

ACES Office of International Programs (OIP) serves as the nexus for all international activities in the college and facilitates international initiatives that promote interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary education, research, and outreach.

ACES OIP fosters scientific exchanges and collaborations of faculty, academic professionals, and students with international partners that capitalize on innovative science and technology, knowledge transfer and information technology, as well as global learning, education, leadership, and community development. ACES OIP promotes internationalizing our college by focusing on the global issues of food security, nutrition, agriculture, environment, natural resources, as well as human and community wellness.
