What is INTERLINK? INTERLINK is a mentoring program, where international students have the opportunity to be paired with a University of Illinois student, faculty, or staff member who can provide support in adjusting to American culture. Mentors and mentees are expected to have regular contact with each other (e.g., weekly coffee or bi-weekly lunch). They can also participate in group social events.
