Resources

Each presentation by an Illinois faculty or staff member to groups from off-campus (or other campuses) represents an opportunity to show what makes Illinois great. Use these Public Affairs' resources to reach audiences, while ensuring consistent communications from across the campus.

Illinois In a Box

Public Affairs has organized everything you'll need to represent the Illinois campus to external audiences with panache. Up-to-date tools and resources, free or at a minimal cost. Available items include signage and banners, table skirts and table tents, props for photo opportunities, handouts, give-a-ways, facts brochures and audio-visual ‘looped’ presentations, and more.

Illinois In a Basket

Illinois in a Basket, a high-end resource to create gift baskets, provides a collection of small gift items that represent the breadth and depth of excellence at Illinois. Each item is representative of an Illinois pride point and can be purchased for guest speakers and campus visitors.

Campus Trivia

Consider using these fascinating little-known campus facts to get your audience talking, laughing, and saying, "I didn't know that!"
