Message from IPS
International Programs and Services (IPS) is proud to work with incoming international students at our Lisle campus, current Benedictine students pursuing education abroad, and students enrolled in our Asia programs in China and Vietnam. Each staff member within our department has studied or spent time abroad and personally knows the value of immersion in another culture, as well as some of the Challenges students may face in pursuing these unique experiences.
BenU students interested in studying abroad can pursue a variety of programs. From semester and year-long programs to short-term faculty led and service immersion experiences, we offer an opportunity that meets your educational, personal, and financial needs. We encourage you to contact our office to set up an appointment by e-mailing email@example.com or calling 630-829-6342.
