Conversation Partners: The Conversation Partners program is designed to bring together international and U.S. students to improve language skills and cultural awareness.

Apply today! Space is limited and the program is set to begin on Friday, February 6th.
Trade Winds is designed to globalize your UIC experience by creating international connections across cultures on campus. New international students are paired up with U.S. students to participate in one-on-one and group activities throughout the semester. International partners learn about UIC and the surrounding community and local culture. U.S. partners benefit by learning about other countries, cultures, values and traditions. The program provides unique opportunities for its participants to interact and educate each other about their cultures, countries, perspectives and their life experiences. Additionally, it gives students the opportunity for involvement and leadership in a meaningful extracurricular activity.
