Division of Intercollegiate Athletics (DIA)

With Illinois


Fighting Illini Athletics leads the way.  The Division of Intercollegiate Athletics (DIA) impacts all areas of the University of Illinois, and serves as a powerful, wide-reaching marketing and advertising operation that is ideally positioned to boost the institution’s visibility. DIA is optimally positioned to positively impact the campus community, as well as Illini Nation at large. Through the generosity of donors across the world, critical financial investment in student-athlete scholarships, capital projects and enhancements to student-athlete programs provide athletics with a competitive edge over our competitors. As athletics continues to grow, so will the university. While expenditures on the student-athlete experience have grown exponentially over the past decade, this is the time to marry investment with impact. Join us in building a program that stands as a beacon for our university and our state in the decades to come.  The Fighting Illini can and should be the model modern-day athletic program against which all others are measured.  Our charge is clear.  The time is now.  If we invest in our Illini, WE WILL WIN.
