In 2007, Eastern Illinois University honored the inaugural class of Global Ambassadors and began a tradition of reuniting international alumni every other year. For more than 50 years EIU has hosted international students on its campus with the assistance of dedicated staff and the vision of its leaders. The Office of International Students and Scholars commends those pioneers for the establishment of programs and structures to facilitate the opportunity for citizens of other countries to enroll at EIU. We applaud those daring and brave students for their courage in leaving home to live and study in a new land and culture. We honor those alumni who exemplify Eastern Illinois University’s definition of global citizen. Once courageous students, they now share a common history, enjoy excellent reputations in their careers and lives, and project bright futures as EIU alumni. We are proud to name them EIU Global Ambassadors.
