Since 1829, Illinois College has transformed the lives of undergraduate students. Founded by abolitionists, Illinois College was the first college in Illinois to graduate students as well as host a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. The College is focused on student success and provides many opportunities for faculty-student interaction beyond the classroom, including collaborative research projects, international study-travel, and mentoring/advising. The College is committed to ensuring access and equity.   


Illinois College seeks candidates who have a commitment to working closely with a wide range of students.
