University Description
You can become part of the excitement that is SIUE, a nationally recognized university educating and developing professional and community leaders through excellent faculty and programs. With a student-to-teacher ratio of 16 to 1, SIUE offers the advantages of a small, liberal arts college with the lowest tuition of 12 state universities in Illinois.

In addition, the University’s emphasis on undergraduate education, complemented by faculty research, creates practical applications for student learning. And, at SIUE, students interact with faculty at all levels — a critical factor in academic success.

Shaping the future in the St. Louis Metro Area since 1957, the University offers quality undergraduate study and programming forged with a solid commitment to the economic development of southwestern Illinois.

As important as location, affordability, and teacher-student ratios, this is an institution with a clear purpose and a clear mission. There is ample evidence that, as a premier metropolitan University, SIUE has achieved excellence in undergraduate education:
■SIUE’s Senior Assignment Program has been heralded by the Association of American Colleges and Universities as a national model in the effectiveness of academic programs offered.
■U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges of 2013 lists SIUE among the top 15 public universities in the best Regional Universities Midwest (master’s granting) category for the ninth consecutive year. The overall scores are based on the academic preparedness of students, graduation rates, faculty characteristics and the reputation of SIUE in higher education.
■For the third-consecutive year, Washington Monthly ranks SIUE among the TOP 50 out of the 682 master’s universities in the nation. SIUE is 25th among public institutions on that list. Unlike conventional rankings, Washington Monthly evaluates an institution’s “contribution to the public good” in three broad categories: Social Mobility, Research and Service.
■The Corporation for National and Community Service named SIUE to the annual President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for the third consecutive year. This honor recognizes SIUE’s commitment to volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement. The University is listed in the Distinction category for the second year in a row.
■More than half of the international student population at SIUE can be found in the School of Engineering, one of the most comprehensive engineering schools in the region offering a broad range of professionally accredited programs.
■The School of Education not only prepares highly qualified PreK-12 classroom teachers and administrators, but also professionals in exciting and high-need areas including sports management, community recreation, clinical psychology, speech-language pathology and audiology, and instructional technology.
■The Princeton Review lists the School of Business as one of the top 294 business schools in the United States and abroad.
■Biology and chemistry graduates in the College of Arts and Sciences regularly are accepted and do well in medical and dental schools.
■The School of Nursing uses a sophisticated, state-of-the-art, simulated learning lab, serving an enrollment of students that is at an all-time high.
■The School of Pharmacy, the only pharmacy program in Southern Illinois, offers a fully-accredited professional program leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree.
■School of Dental Medicine graduates consistently rank high among the nation’s 64 accredited dental schools on national board exams.
■The SIUE East St. Louis Center serves as a national model for how universities can empower people and strengthen communities.
■More than $14 million in state, federal and private grants was allocated last year to the East St. Louis Center for its comprehensive programs, services and training for children and families in the community.
■The Carnegie Commission categorizes SIUE as primarily a residential campus. We provide student life activities comparable to many larger universities.

Region Description
Only 25 minutes from downtown St. Louis — with its nationally known Fortune 500 companies, professional sports, cultural offerings and transportation that puts you within minutes of just about anywhere in the Metro Area — the SIUE campus is situated on 2,660 acres of beautiful woodland atop the bluffs overlooking the natural beauty of the Mississippi River’s rich bottom land.
