Spanish & Illinois
Website and/or Calendar Links
Spanish & Illinois is a program of courses and extra-curricular opportunities in the Department of Spanish, Italian & Portuguese at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Their offerings allow students to develop Spanish language skills, knowledge of Latino cultures and the tenets of entrepreneurship--and then put them to use in real-world work experiences.
Spanish & Illinois creates bridges between the University of Illinois and the Spanish-speaking communities in our state, in the United States, and in the world.
The program's mission is to create bonds that benefit the community, the students, and the partner organizations. To achieve this, Spanish and Illinois combines Spanish language and cultural education with these three essential tools:
Entrepreneurship (broadly defined)
Spanish for specific purposes (professions)
