Brand Essence Main Content


This is where all the elements come together to form a central big idea. It’s the culmination of what was started with the mission, and it encapsulates a university-wide truth.

At its core, the SIU experience is the perfect balance of academics and access. Nationally recognized research that is making an impact. A challenging academic program for the highest-achieving honor students as well as those searching for the right academic environment in which they can thrive. A faculty as devoted to teaching and transforming lives as they are to research and discovery. A caring community within and beyond the SIU campus—one with an intellectual energy combined with a small and quintessential college campus feel.
