Chicago is home to nearly 30 percent of the University’s alumni and 40 percent of its student body. Illinois State University Foundation’s Chicago Office was established in 1990 as an Illinois State University home base in Chicago for Alumni to develop a stronger link in recruiting students and to provide a drop-in spot and meeting place for faculty, staff, alumni, and students.
An oasis in the city, the Illinois State University Chicago Office offers a quiet place to work and relax, or a sophisticated location for your professional meeting or social event. Set up a meeting for the day away from the office or get work done in a peaceful and inspiring setting. Use of the offices is complimentary to alumni, students, faculty, and staff during business hours; evening and weekend hours are also available for a nominal fee.
