Welcome to the Illini Center West

The Illini Center West is here to build a bridge between the more than 26,000 Illinois alumni in Northern California, Oregon, and Washington and The University of Illinois through strategic educational advancement practices.

Illinois has a deep connection to the economy of the West Coast thanks to thousands of alumni who have created and currently lead the companies shaping global technology.  Thousands more Illinois alumni are leaders in every area of the private and research sectors, the arts, and academia.  While still thousands more manage teams, work in teams or create their own destiny while upholding that smart, Midwestern work-ethic that Illinois is known for around the world. 

We invite you, our alumni, friends and corporate partners to help us write the next chapter in Illinois’ historic relationship with the West Coast.  Together we can build partnerships that strengthen both the West and Midwest.
