Visiting UIUC

Foellinger Auditorium

UIUC (Urbana-Champaign Campus)

For students interested in completing their studies on campus, the flagship campus at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) will be the location for students in the PARM program.

UIUC is nestled in the twin cities of Urbana and Champaign in the east-central part of Illinois. UIUC is the flagship institution of the University of Illinois system and was founded in 1867 as one of the original 37 public land-grant institutions created after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Morrill Act in 1862. UIUC now offers over 200 undergraduate and graduate programs, with a student enrollment of over 56,000.

The Main Library at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is the forward facing structure that represents the second largest university library collection in the United States. The structure was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 2000. The library was purposely built away from the center of campus, a break from traditional campus planning, to allow the building to expand.

The new PARM program is jointly administered by the Department of Mathematics and the Gies College of Business. In addition to the numerous undergraduate and graduate programs offered, the UIUC campus is home to the Research Park at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, in the southwestern part of the campus. Research Park, which was founded in 1999, acts as a hub for technology and innovation for startup companies and corporate partners. Research Park has more than 120 companies and is growing, employing over 2,100 people in high-technology careers. At any given time, more than 800 student interns are gaining valuable experiential learning and work experience while making real contributions to internal corporate R&D and product development programs. The impetus for the PARM program is consistent with UIUC mission and the increased focus on technology and innovation.
