EOA is dedicated to the enhancement of a quality working and learning environment for our employees, students and others by ensuring the University meets its moral and legal obligations as an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer.
Safe Zone’s mission at SIUE is to develop a campus community of allies and provide support to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students, faculty, and staff with the ultimate goal of developing SIUE as a safe and welcoming place for LGBT people.
SIUE is constantly searching for new ways to bring faculty from overseas as well as create opportunities for SIUE faculty to teach abroad either leading Study Abroad groups or participating in scholarly travel opportunities.
