The Actuarial Program at Illinois State University is a Society of Actuaries' Center of Actuarial Excellence. We were the first Center of Actuarial Excellence in the state of Illinois, and are now one of only two in the state. There are only few universities that have attained this recognition, 30 worldwide.
Our program also received the 2016 Casualty Actuarial Society University Award.
Employers are always welcome to visit our campus, meet with our students and faculty, and make presentations to the Actuarial Club. We will accommodate every request employers might have in terms of presenting our students as candidates to them. We offer an online database of students' resumes. Our main actuarial employment event is called Meet the Firms, and it is held every year in late September or early October. We ask employers to register for Meet the Firms by filling this survey.
Employers who want to support our program, can donate here. We offer scholarships funded by numerous employers, and funding a scholarship named after an empoloyer is an excellent way to build goodwill with students, who are potential employees. Please consider supporting the future of the actuarial profession by donating here.
