Participating Universities

Illinois State University


Founded in 1857, Illinois State University is the state of Illinois’ first public university and offers a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate majors. The university devotes abundant resources and energies to creating a supportive and productive campus community for all - students, faculty, staff, alumni, retirees, contributors, and visitors.

With the support of federal grants, ISU has been offering two programs through the University Center which assist bilingual paraprofessionals in high need school districts in becoming fully licensed elementary school teachers with bilingual endorsements:  Transitioning Paraprofessionals into Teachers and Transitioning Paraprofessionals into Teachers of English Learners.  Because these programs have already launched their final cohorts, they are not included in the University Center Program Guide.
