Illini Media’s mission is to provide a unique experiential learning environment to complement University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s academic areas; to prepare Illinois students for future careers in print and digital media, broadcast, marketing, public relations, sales, fundraising and business; and to inform, enlighten and entertain the Illinois student community.
Our calling for the future is to allow our students to keep pace with rapidly changing technologies, while retaining a focus on the production of excellent work. We can meet that challenge if we continue to provide the facilities and resources that allow our students to move forward, building on the renowned reputation and legacy of former Illini Media students.
Our location and equipment set the stage for exciting progress; sending our students to media conferences and fostering relationships with professionals in their fields will also be critical in meeting our educational mission. The Illini Media board and management believe that the investment in these resources will be invaluable as our students continue to succeed here and in their future careers.
