The Right Choice for Your Success

Resources for Parents & Caregivers

Welcome to the Western Illinois University community in Macomb, Illinois! Your family member is about to begin a life-changing experience. At Western Illinois University (WIU), we recognize this is a time of great excitement and anticipation for not only students, but also for parents. It is only natural that parents may find it difficult to send their son or daughter away to school, but sending a student to school in a foreign country is often even more difficult. Parents play a big role – even from a distance – in offering support during their student’s university career.

The Center for Global Studies not only welcomes students but also provides resources and assistance to all international students.
