Meet our Lincoln Scholars
We believe the power of innovation can change the world.
In the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences at Illinois, the leaders of tomorrow learn to analyze and solve problems, to work in diverse groups, and to view the world with a broad perspective. Our students pursue knowledge in an incredible breadth of areas and use their education to propel society forward.
